Day 239 Drink: Abita Save Our Shore A Charitable Pilsner
Anyone who reads this blog knows I believe that beer can be a powerful tool for good. The folks at Abita Brewing Co. in Louisiana agree.
In the face of the BP Oil Disaster, Abita decided to do what they do best: brew.
Working with the Louisiana Seafood Promotion & Marketing Board (LSPMB), Abita established ‘SOS – A Charitable Fund’ that will assist with the rescue and restoration of the environment, industry and individuals fighting to survive the oil spill.
Abita created Save Our Shore A Charitable Pilsner to raise funds. The brewery is donating 75-cents from each 22-ounce bomber bottle sold.
Abita Save Our Shore A Charitable Pilsner is an unfiltered weizen pils. The 7 percent alcohol by volume brew pours a very slightly cloudy golden color with a nice malty aroma. The beer has a crisp flavor. The malt is upfront with a good amount of cleansing hop in the finish.
