Abita SOS, A Charitable Pilsner !

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 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 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.

Did you know Wheatsville has its own line own fresh sausages? Post renovation we saw the opportunity to make traditional fresh made sausages in the meat market. The best thing is we're using Niman Ranch meats, which are naturally raised, sustainable and third-party certified animal welfare standards. We make 6 varieties currently: Sweet Italian, Hot Italian, Chorizo, pork breakfast, turkey breakfast, and Chicken lime and cilantro sausage. These are recipes I've been making and refining for years. Most commercial sausages are made with more fat, almost 60%. Our sausages are leaner and made with whole ingredients, no additives or cures. You can pick these up at the meat counter or prepackage in the meat case.  You can also find the sausages making their way into the deli. Thanks to the bakery and kitchen we now have 2 great items made with our sausage for eating pleasure: Feta and sausage hand pies $2.99 each and now on our "brunch" hot bar we'll be selling the pork breakfast sausage to have with your biscuits and gravy or French toast. I personally recommend both of them; the hand pies are great anytime of the day.

Natural sea Cod filets and sticks $4.69 8oz, regular $6.59
