This photo provided by Barrier Brewing Co. shows damaged tanks in the Barrier Brewing Co. on Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2012 in Oceanside, N.Y. While most breweries made it through Superstorm Sandy, the surges of saltwater, power outages and distribution problems have all dealt a blow to New York's thriving beer industry. Barrier has already filed its insurance claims and requested disaster relief from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Brooklyn Brewery, one of the biggest U.S. craft brewers, managed to escape serious damage at its facility near Brooklyn‚'s Williamsburg waterfront, where water stayed a block away. But its distributor, Phoenix/Beehive, took in five feet of water at the storm's peak in its warehouse on Brooklyn‚'s Red Hook waterfront, according to a Facebook post by Steve Hindy, Brooklyn Brewery's president.
