Brewery teams with NY Riptide for money-raising IPA

The New York Riptide and Westhampton Beach Brewing Company have teamed up to offer a special-edition Riptide Double India Pale Ale.

A portion of proceeds from the sales of Riptide Double IPA will benefit the Boomer Esiason Foundation, raising money, awareness and support for the cystic fibrosis community.

Riptide Double IPA will be available at the Westhampton Beach Brewing Company tasting room and brewery in Westhampton Beach. The brew will also be available in stores throughout Long Island and Westchester County in the coming months, according to a company statement.

Riptide Double IPA is dry hopped twice with Citra, Eldorado and Rakau hops, creating big citrus notes of apricot and orange, according to the brewery.

“We are thrilled to partner with the Westhampton Beach Brewing Company for the launch of a Riptide-inspired beer,” Rich Lisk, executive vice president of GF Sports & Entertainment, said in the statement. “Our shared values in community and pride in Long Island have brought us together to create this exciting beverage. We are also honored to benefit the Long Island-based Boomer Esiason Foundation, whose inspiring work has been immeasurable in the battle against cystic fibrosis.”

Brian Sckipp, co-founder of Westhampton Beach Brewing Company, said they worked hard to create “a strong, vibrant and special brew” that represents the strength and courage of those battling cystic fibrosis.

“We feel honored and humbled to join this worthy cause,” Sckipp said in the statement. “This partnership allows me to once again be a part of my favorite sport and to contribute to important charitable work.”
