While a lot of the Florida Keys were hit hard and sustained a lot of damage from Hurricane Irma, Islamorada Beer Company co-founder Jose Herrera was lucky. His brewery and tap room had no structural damage from the storm. So he’s paying forward his good fortune by helping others in the island chain.
Herrera says they’re bringing food, clothes, diapers, butane canisters, a generator and a satellite phone, so folks can reconnect with loved ones and let them know they’re okay. Herrera isn’t sure where they’ll be dropping supplies off just yet, that all depends on roads and conditions.
He’s sure that despite the devastation, the Florida Keys will rise again. “I think of it as the Keys being under renovation,” Herrera explains. “We will rebuild. Our lifestyle is still everyone else’s vacation.”
