‘Fur Missile’ Beer To Help Police K9 Foundation
In the wake of recent tragic events, the Barnstable (MA) Police K9 Foundation is seeking to purchase cameras for the protection and improved safety of both the BPD K9s and their handlers. Special infrared and remote voice command enabled dog cameras exists that allow K9 officers to better assess and respond to situations, but the state of the art camera are costly. A single camera costs $22,000. It is the Foundation’s hope that with the help of the community, enough money will be raised to actually purchase one camera, or maybe even both of the needed cameras.
Cape Cod Beer was moved by the mission and offered to produce and sell a specially named beer in honor of the effort. 100% of the gross revenue from the beer sold (in bottles and pints) will go back to the cause.
The beer is being called “Fur Missile” which is a name affectionately used by the handlers to refer to what a working K9 looks like as it launches itself towards it objective.
Fur Missile Beer is a blonde ale infused with black tea and citrus peel. This is an easy drinking beer, with a light refreshing flavor. The beer will be available at the brewery and possibly select package stores in 22 oz glass bottles. It will also be available on tap at the brewery. 100% of the gross revenue will be donated directly to the Foundation for the purpose of purchasing the K9 camera(s).
Cape Cod Beer was founded in 2004 and is Cape Cod’s original craft beer. Located in Hyannis, Cape Cod Beer is self-distributed and is available on draft and in cans from Pembroke to Provincetown. The brewery is open six days a week year-round for tastings, tours and events. The brewery store features a large selection of products made on Cape Cod.
