After the disastrous oil spill in the Gulf, Abita teamed up with Louisiana fundraising committees to raise money for the relief and rescue effort, by creating 'SOS' - a unfiltered Weizen Pilsner - that would generate 75 cents for every bottle sold. After following the news on this special project for the last month, we are happy to finally have the beer in our warehouse so we can start getting this great "message in a bottle" out to you.
A good beer for a good cause...this special release sold in 22oz bottles will not stay on the shelves long, so go out and get yourself some this weekend and you will be happy you did.
If you are interested in making a cash contribution to the 'SOS' fund or purchasing merchandise such as hats and t-shirts, please click on the link below. 100% of all net proceeds of the merchandise go directly to the fund.
