Notes/Commercial Description:
While birds of a feather stick together, their wings should not. We blew our cap seeing images of oilslick seabirds and thinking about what may happen to more of our fine, feathered-friends as they migrate south this fall, so we hatched this flighty idea for a specialty brew called 'Toxic Sludge'.
All of the proceeds will benefit Tri-State Bird Rescue & Research's "Spreading Our Wings" campaign and their efforts to build a Wildlife Response Annex. To learn more, please visit: www.tristatebird.org
In times of crisis (like this) we figure you can either hibernate or participate.
Try this tasty, dry-hopped Black IPA, it's as smooth as water off a duck's back. So everytime you drink one, please let out a loud squawk in honor of our beautiful, beaked brethen.
We hope you can dig deep in your hearts (and pockets) to help support the effort.
Be Well,
Mark & Pete

Black IPA - Toxic Sludge 7% by Bluepoint LI
They make pretty good wine east on Long Island NY.
I have enjoyed everything from this brewer so far. I wish for a better name for this beautiful beer, but they give portion of profits to sea bird refuge and rescue. Bravo!

A: Perfect, dark body, but a creamy, rich, lasting, lacing tan head. A looker 4
S: Subtle. Malt is plenty present as in any roast beer, and a fine hop overlay that is salt hay, spicy, masculine. 3.5
T: Where this beer shines best. Perfect with pizza or oysters, the ABV and body stand up well to coastal foods. More salt than sweet, plus bitter chocolate. Reminds me of the great oyster stout from Flying Dog, but this beer is bigger, and more hoppy. A bit salty boardwalk (Wood, char, targ, salt, sand, decay) but in a very good way. 4.
MF: Creamy, long, minerally, based on excellent well water. 4
O: 4
Must try, original, if you like your beers masculine. One of the best in a favorite style.
