Brewery Releases Limited-Edition Pilsner to Benefit Cape Coral Boy with Leukemia

Fort Myers Brewing Co. is introducing Adyn Strong, a new German pilsner brewed for a special cause. Adyn Pickett is a Cape Coral resident who is fighting leukemia. Pickett was diagnosed with leukemia at ages 4, 6, and 7. His family learned this summer that the leukemia had returned. Adyn Strong will be sold exclusively at Fort Myers Brewing Co.’s taproom in Gateway and available for to-go pickup starting Aug. 4 at 2 p.m. The limited-edition craft beer sells for $12 with $10 from every 6-pack sold going directly to benefit the Pickett family as 8-year-old Adyn prepares for his fourth battle with cancer. The limited-edition label for the Adyn Strong brew, which was inspired by Adyn’s love for LEGOs, was created by Jeromy Boutwell of Boutwell Designs with printing services donated by Blue Label Packaging Co.
