Abita SOS Fund


Abita SOS-Save Our Shore


Abita Beer has established ‘SOS – A Charitable Fund’ that will serve relief and response efforts in disasters in Louisiana. 


The fund has pledged that 100% of all money raised will go to charity. An advisory committee is being established as the donation process and grant procedures are finalized.


The centerpiece of the fundraising effort is a new charitable beer created by Abita. The brew, called SOS – A Charitable Pilsner, will generate 75¢ for every bottle sold. This Abita Beer is a message in a bottle...a distress signal for the troubled waters of our Gulf Coast. For every bottle sold Abita will donate 75¢ to the rescue and restoration of the environment, industry and individuals fighting to survive this disastrous oil spill. This unfiltered Weizen Pils is made with Pilsner and Wheat malts. It is hopped and dry hopped with Sterling and German Perle hops. It has a brilliant gold color, a sweet malt flavor, and a pleasant bitterness and aroma.


In addition, related retail merchandise (hat, tee shirt, lapel pin, decal and car magnet) will be sold and 100% of the net proceeds will also go to the SOS Fund. (visit: sos.abita.com for more)
