As a lifetime Long-Islander and a current resident of Long Beach, allow me to throw my two cents in as someone who lived through the hurricane...$17 IS overpriced. For that much money, I'd rather go straight to Barrier and buy a growler which: 1. Will give me more beer, which I will probably enjoy better than Sandy Relief IPA at only 5%. 2. Will probably give Barrier more money, and immediately. I passed on this beer because of these two reasons, though I know they don't need me when I'm sure the general population will scoop it all up.
