My cousin Jay is definitely one of my favorite relatives. Not only because he got me an entire case of Guinness for Christmas last year, but because he's driven, focused, doesn't take any shit, and always does what he says he's going to do. A man of his word. He's taken those qualities and fused them with his love for beer to create Flagship Brewing Company. This nascent brewery is the only one of its kind on Staten Island, NY (if you don't know, that's where these guys are from). And when I say the only of of its kind, I mean it's the ONLY one. There hasn't been a real brewery in Shoalin for over 50 year. And my cousin Jay, having to grow up on the island and witness such an injustice, is determined to change that. Flagship is all about supporting the local scene, so much so that it even grows their own hops on the island. He asked me and my friend Alena (Joan Rivers Conspiracy Theory ----->) to make him a promotional video for the brewery, and I am very happy to present it to the world and be a part of this movement. Keep your eyes open for Flagship, hitting shelves next year.
