I blog primarily over at "geosciblog" (http://geosciblog.blogspot.com), I am doing this one for fun. It is inspired by 30+ years of beer can collecting and having tried more than 3,000 different American beers during that time. “. . . And beer was drunk with reverence, as it ought to be.” — G. K.

A Tasty, Light Microbrew from Abita Brewing Co.

If you are put off by the heavy flavors of many microbrewery beers and ales, here is something you might like, Abita fleur-de-lis Restoration Ale, from the Abita Brewing Co., Abita, LA.

It is flavorful, yet light (not as in a low calorie beer). This brew is designed to help raise money to help Hurricane Katrina victims by Abita Brewing Co. donating one dollar from each six-pack for relief efforts. Abita Brewing Co. itself suffered the loss of 6,000 barrels of beer due to the loss of refrigeration for several days after the hurricane.

I think 2006 will be the 20th anniversary of Abita Brewing Co., so hopefully there will some interesting celebration brews from them.
