We get our share of whacky correspondences from back-seat-brewers suggesting recipes, marketing ideas and side-products. But recently we were all thrilled when we got this email from a Rockaway resident who now calls the west coast home:
“My god our town is coming back I read [about] your brewery and another sign our beloved community is rising again. You should name your next brew “Phoenix rising” from the ashes of the past of far rockaway. This is one of the last picture from Far Rockaway before the destruction of [my] community 1980. My wife is third from the right. Yes, this is FRHS.”
While we can’t say we’ll name the next brew as such, we’re definitely considering whipping up a small quantity of something to honor the girls who used to cheer for the FRHS athletic teams.
