ABC Action News Chief Meteorologist Denis Phillips is known for his sage advice and calm amid the chaos of a storm... signing off on his reassuring social media updates with his famous "Rule # 7".. which essentially means "stop freaking out and stay calm".
Well during last year's nerve-wracking ordeal with the approach of Hurricane Irma, an idea came to the mind of Crooked Thumb Brewery's founder Travis Kruger and the "Rule #7 Hurricane Saison" was born and is now canned in a special edition featuring Denis's signature suspenders!
Rule #7 will be release May 27th in time for the start of Hurricane Season. It will be on tap at Crooked Thumb and available in 4 packs of cans. $1 from each pint and 4-pack sold on the release date will go to the Red Cross. The release party will feature live music from The New Rulers and BBQ for sale from Westchase BBQ. Many patrons and the staff plan to wear suspenders to the event as a tribute to Denis.
