In case you didn't know it, Louisiana rocks.
Abita Brewing Co. has announced that they are launching a new brew in July that will be called SOS in an effort to support restoration of Louisiana's Gulf Coast. Here's a bit from their site:
Working with the Louisiana Seafood Promotion & Marketing Board (LSPMB), Abita Beer announced that it has established ‘SOS – A Charitable Fund’ that will assist with the rescue and restoration of the environment, industry and individuals fighting to survive this disastrous oil spill.
The fund has pledged that 100% of all money raised will go to charity. In addition, the Louisiana Seafood Marketing Board will play an important role in advising where the money can do the most good.
$.75 from each bottle sold will go to the SOS fund. Abita was a strong supporter after Katrina with their Restoration Ale supporting the rebuilding efforts after that disaster, and you can count on them to be instrumental in this recovery as well.
