Retired firefighter, P. J. Schrantz is brewing and marketing Fire Company Brew, all of the profits will go to charitable endeavors that will support families who lost loved ones in the 9/11 tragedy.

Of the many fireighters killed at the World Trade Center, five were friends and former co-workers of Schrantz. He was personally involved in the rescue efforts arriving at the WTC on the afternoon of the 11th and remaining there for four days, sleeping on the streets. In those first four days, he left ground zero only to take his 5 year old son, who has leukemia, for chemotherapy treatments.

For beer drinkers, I might nudge you to consider ordering some Fire Company Brew to quench your thirst. The beer will debut later this month and will be brewed by Matt Brewing Co. There doesn't appear to be any news about the beer on their site yet, nor does the Fire Company Brew URL work...they're apparently not all the way up and running yet.
