PORTSMOUTH - A popular Seacoast brewery is debuting a brand new ale honoring fallen Greenland Police Chief Michael Maloney.
The limited-edition beer, which creators titled the "Maloney 260 Ale," will be released at 6 p.m. on Friday night at the Beara Irish Brewing Co. at 2800 Lafayette Road in Portsmouth.
It is named after Maloney's badge number, which was 260.
Maloney's family told NH1 News that it means a lot to know the late chief is still remembered.
"I think it's hard to describe, but it's just wonderful," said Kathleen Lahey, Maloney's younger sister. "It doesn't shrink down. Everybody just remembers him - as he was - a good guy."
The release comes one day after 10 $1,000 scholarships were awarded to area students on behalf of the Chief Michael Maloney Memorial Fund.
"It's the least we can do," said Michael Potorti, the brewery's founder.
Maloney was shot and killed at age 48 on April 12, 2012 during a drug raid on Post Road in Greenland.
He planned to retire 8 days later.
