A Florida brewery is now serving a special brew in honor of Sister Margaret Ann, who made headlines after a video showed her hacking through debris with a chainsaw in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma.
On Oct. 20, Due South Brewing Company
released "Nun With a Chainsaw," which doesn't taste like the holy spirit or chainsaws but is more of a tribute to Ann's spirit in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma.
"That story really resonated with us," said Due South's marketing manager, Doug Fairall, in an interview with SouthFlorida.com
. "We all dealt with that. I know I did."
In a video posted on the Miami Dade Police Department's Twitter
, Sister Ann is seen sawing through a large pile of debris, black gown billowing in the wind. Ann is the principal of Archbishop Coleman F. Carroll High School in southwest Miami-Dade County.
While Nun With a Chainsaw doesn't feature the image of Sister Ann, its schlock horror-movie font-styling makes it stand out nevertheless. As The Full Pint
reports, the beer has a tropical and piney flavor. It was brewed from Amarillo, Azacca, and Idaho 7 hops.
"We're having fun with it, for sure", said Fairall. "But it was a serious event that took place here. She symbolized us all being brought out of our element to do what had to be done."
