Have you seen Moran’s new colors?

The fleet’s signature white M’s have been painted pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. What an awesome thing to do.

Rock on, Moran and thank you for going PINK!

Anybody else see Moran’s PINK M’s? We’d love to see them! Share your photos of the Pinks in the Working Harbor Photo Pool on Flickr.

It’s citrusy, a little floral, with strong hoppy tones – and it’s a new way to help the environment, all while enjoying a nice, cold beer.

Each pint of a new Imperial IPA-style beer sold will benefit the waterway watch-group, Riverkeeper in a first-time partnership between an environmental group and a commercial brewery.

WAMC Northeast Public RadioTwo Westchester breweries — Peekskill Brewery and Elmsford-based Captain Lawrence Brewery – were partners in brewing the first-of-its-kind collaboration beer to benefit Riverkeeper. Michael Benz is Peekskill Brewery’s Brewery Ambassador. He says it’s the first time his brewery has become involved in brewing for a cause.

“We figured if it’s going to be any cause it should be this one specifically because water is at the heart of what we do,” says Benz.



An online campaign opened the naming-of-the-brew up to the public, drawing hundreds of votes for the winner from finalists like Clean River, Estuary, Save the Hudson, and Watchdog.

The winning name? Lucky Sturgeon IPA

There’ll be tastings at Captain Lawrence Brewing Co., September 26 and at the third-annual Hudson Hop and Harvest festival on the Peekskill waterfront October 4.
