Rare saison in charity auction

June 28th, 2006 | Posted by Real Beer

A Belgian brewer and forces on this side of the Atlantic have partnered in an auction to help a French girl suffering from a rare, neurological condition known as leukodystrophy.

Brasserie Fantome’s Dany Prignon and his brewer friend, Gilles Didier (who lives in the same town as the girl), have brewed a special beer to be sold at auction to raise money for an operation. They created a special, strong version of Dany’s rare and popular Pissenlit saison, brewed with dandelions. This is a one-time, very limited edition – only 20 bottles are available. Each bottle has been numbered and signed by Dany and Gilles, and 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the European Leukodystrophy Association.

Auction details are at the Shelton Brothers website (Shelton imports the Fantome beers).

The auction continues through July 3.
