REHOBOTH BEACH – Thompson Island Brewing Company brews “Engine 86” to raise funds for the Rehoboth Beach Volunteer Fire Company to purchase a new fire truck worth $980,000.

The new IPA, Engine 86, brewed by head brewer Justin Leahy and members of the Rehoboth Beach Fire Company, will contribute $2 from every 4-pack sold at Thompson Island for a new fire truck.

The New Unit will be an Enforcer Cab with a 2000 GPM Pump, 750 Tank on a Short wheel base, and the first response unit for all fire calls in Rehoboth and Dewey. It is replacing a 15-year-old truck.

Thompson Island Head Brewer Justin Leahy said, “My brother started his career as a first responder with our local volunteer fire department, so it is meaningful to partner with the Rehoboth Beach Volunteer Fire Company on Engine 86 IPA and help raise funds for a new fire truck.  Engine 86 is a well-balanced American Style IPA where everyone can enjoy the hop notes of citrus peel, grapefruit, and pine.”

Engine 86 will release on Friday, September 8th at Thompson Island and $2 from every 4-pack sold will be donated to the Fire Company. Guests can also find the beer at the 86 Hook and Ladder Brewfest on Saturday, September 9th, a fundraiser for the fire department.
