Abita Brewing Company has created a fundraising beer called SOS – A Charitable Pilsner. Sold in 22 oz bottles and it features a label created out of images of pelicans, shrimp and fishing boat which reflects the life around the Gulf of Mexico, this unfiltered weizen pils pours a brilliant gold and has a malty sweetness to it. It is 7 percent ABV.
The brew is the centerpiece to the company’s goal to raise money and assist those who have been impacted by the oil spill in the Gulf. 75 cents of every bottle sold will go to charity. Related merchandise will be sold with 100 percent net proceeds going to charity. Additional ways to help can be found at sos.abita.com.
