Ommegang begins brewing Barrier Relief Ale, a collaboration with Barrier Brewing Company located on Long Island. The proceeds of the keg sales will go towards helping Barrier rebuild its brewery which was damaged by Hurricane Sandy. When the Company releases this statement to affected brewing community, Barrier accepts their offer:
Brewery Ommegang in Cooperstown, NY, is fortunate to have been undamaged by Hurricane Sandy. After seeing the devastation wreaked across the mid-Atlantic and Northeast, we’d like to offer our assistance and support to other breweries that may have suffered from the storm.
Barrier Relief Ale will be sold under the Ommegang’s label, using Barrier’s recipe, and will be distributed in Barrier’s market in NYC and the surrounding area.
