FORT MYERS, Fla. - Floridant -- 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 a fire at the restaurant. Available starting noon on Saturday, Sept. 24, the American IPA will be sold exclusively at Fort Myers Brewing Company's taproom, located at 12811 Commerce Lakes Drive, Suite 28, in Fort Myers.

The Sanibel Island restaurant recently experienced an after-hours kitchen fire, and while The Island Cow is working to rebuild, its 50 employees are facing unemployment. All proceeds from the limited-edition craft beer – available in six-packs for $12 – will go directly to benefit restaurant employees.

"Employees are family, and our hearts go out to The Island Cow as their team begins to rebuild this beloved island restaurant," said Jen Whyte, co-owner of Fort Myers Brewing Company. "As fellow business owners, we want to do our part and we encourage the community to join us in helping relieve the financial burden and 'Help the Herd' so that they can continue providing for their families."

"We are so grateful to Fort Myers Brewing and everyone else who has stepped up to offer their support during this difficult time," said Elke Podlasek, owner of The Island Cow. "We are working to reopen as soon as possible, but this process could take a year or more. Some of our team members have worked for us since we first opened our doors and have known no other job since they were teenagers, and we're thankful for all who are contributing to help our Island Cow family navigate this transition."
