Remember the nun with a chainsaw? She got a beer named after her.

In what was perhaps the most Miami moment of the post-Irma clean up, Sister Margaret Ann sliced through tree debris with a chainsaw. In full habit.

The image went viral, inspiring plenty of “because Miami” comments. Now the intrepid chainsaw wielding nun inspired Due South Brewing Company of Boynton Beach to create a brew in pay tribute to the Sister. Bemused beer drinkers can raise a glass to the only-in-Miami religious leader with the release of Nun With a Chainsaw.

The new brew, an India Pale Ale, said to emit “tropical and piney aromas and flavors,” was inspired by Sister Margaret Ann, the principal at Archbishop Coleman F. Carroll High School, who charmed the community with her pluck and work ethic.

“That story really resonated with us. The nun going out … Who else is going to go out and chop down all the debris? We all dealt with that. I know I did,” Doug Fairall, Due South Brewing’s marketing manager, told South Florida.Com.

Nun With A Chainsaw was released Friday in 16-ounce cans and is also available in draft.
