Local Brewery Helping Sanibel Employees


Fort Myers Brewing Company is releasing a limited-edition Moo Crew Brew to support employees of The Island Cow who are out of work following the fire that destroyed the restaurant.

Available starting noon Sept. 24, the American IPA will be sold exclusively at Fort Myers Brewing Company’s taproom at 12811 Commerce Lakes Drive in Gateway.

As the owners of the Island Cow work to rebuild the restaurant from the August 6th kitchen fire, their 50 employees are currently out of work.

The launch event will run noon to 11 p.m. and also feature a live performance at 7 p.m. by Ben Clifford and food from Cuban Connection and Vesuvius Wood Fired Pizza. We hope to see you there!

All proceeds from the limited-edition craft beer, available in six-packs for $12, will go directly to benefit the employees.

Island Cow owner Brian Podselki told Beach Talk Radio news he couldn’t be more grateful for what the folks at the Fort Myers Brewing Company are doing. “We have 50 people out of work. What a great idea this is. I couldn’t believe how quickly they were able to put this together. This is fantastic.”

The Island Cow is still about another year from being rebuilt and opening back up.
