Vermont’s Long Trail Brewing Company has teamed up with The Flyin Ryan Hawks Foundation to create a new IPA.
The Flyin Ryan Hawks Foundation is a non-profit endeavor inspired by the life of Ryan Hawks. The foundation was founded in April of 2011 after Ryan Hawks, a well-known and widely respected extreme skier passed away from injuries sustained during a Freeskiing World Tour event in Kirkwood, CA in 2011. To honor his legacy as a person, his family set up a non-profit foundation called the Flyin Ryan Hawks Foundation.
The beer will be available at a number of après bars including Mad River Glen’s General Stark’s Pub and will likely make its way throughout the rest of the Green Mountain State’s ski areas and bars. From December 1 until March 31, ten cents from each beer sold will go toward the Flyin Ryan scholarship fund. So far the foundation has provided over 50 scholarships supporting kids who have aspirations in the outdoors.
