Tampa Bay Brewing Company and Florida Aquarium will be serving up a specially brewed beer on Friday to help the rehabilitation efforts for marine life affected by the oil leak along the Gulf coast.
The owners of Tampa Bay Brewing Company will launch the new beer, named New Horizon (to reflect the changing Gulf waters as a result of the Deepwater Horizon tragedy), at an event at 5 p.m. Friday.
Two dollars from every New Horizon sold will be donated to the Florida Aquarium in order to provide money for wildlife rescue of animals injured by the on-going oil leak.
John Doble, of Tampa Bay Brewing, said staff from the Florida Aquarium will be at the brew pub in Ybor City on Friday to talk about rescue and recovery efforts and how the funds will be used.
The beer will sell for $6 a pint. “I urge everybody to join us and invite your friends to join us to share in a fun and rewarding experience to help our Gulf and its marine life,” Doble said.
