The Florida Museum and First Magnitude Brewing Co. invite you to a fundraiser to help support butterfly conservation in Florida. As part of the event, First Magnitude will release a special brew called “Night Life Black IPA,” highlighting nocturnal insects like Io and luna moths.

Light pollution can harm moths and other nocturnal insects. Help them by turning off unneeded lights, using motion-activated lighting, and switching to bulbs that produce red-colored light.

First Magnitude Brewing logoThe Night Life Black IPA combines a significant citrus hop flavor with notes of white grapefruit and melon along with dark chocolate and raisin/stone fruit character imparted from a combination of imported Belgian and English roasted malts. Perfect for hop lovers to enjoy as they embrace the darkness. T-shirts will be available for purchase at the event.

The first 100 customers to purchase a Night Life Black IPA will receive a Hammock Snakeroot or Manyflower Beardtongue plant with their purchase!

10% of each can sold will directly support imperiled butterfly recovery efforts in Florida.
