Because you can’t sustain yourself on beer alone while at #gabf, stopped by @euclidhall on a recommendation from @starbar_denver. @brewrob and I sat at the chef’s counter and had a great time. The chef paired this chicken and waffles with foi gras with a Monk’s Cafe Flemish Sour Ale. Recommend stoping by if you’re in Denver.
The Abita Beer Co (@theabitabeer) from Louisiana showcases their Save Our Shore (SOS) beer at #gabf. Like their Restoration beer that was created to help restore the state after Hurricane Katrina, SOS is the second socially responsible beer from the Abita Springs brewery - helping with Gulf clean-up after the BP incident. In addition to being good fir the community, they’re both solid beers. Talking to them at GABF, they said that they are a part of that community and try to do what they can to help. Since first introduced as a limited run a couple of years ago, Restoration has generated $500K and in just a few weeks, SOS has generated $100K for it’s efforts. Pick up a six-pack if you can, and help the cause.
