Buy beer for the birds?
"Our poor little beaked brethren think they are vacationing in the sunny Gulf but they are really flying straight into a disaster zone," said Pete Cotter, president of Blue Point Brewing. "While others are focused on cleaning up the beaches and water, our efforts are purely for the birds."
Blue Point beers are sold in 12 states including Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina and Florida as well as the District of Columbia.
Blue Point also began selling "Save the Buffleheads" T-shirts for $25, with all proceeds going to Tri-State. The brewery picked the smallest diving duck in North America because it breeds in Canada and winters off the Gulf Coast. Scroll to the bottom of the page to order a T-shirt.
