The Abita makes a variety of beers - some that are available all year and some that are seasonal.  They call some of the seasonal brews, "harvest brews." I have no idea what the difference might be.

Anyway, here's the description from their site:

"Strawberry Harvest Lager is a wheat beer made with real Louisiana strawberries, picked late in the season when they’re at their sweetest. This brew has earned quite a reputation in a short time, causing the brewery to up their production year after year."

I saw the local distributor in McDade's today - he said that there are four cases at the Sprint Mart in Florence (which is about 13 miles away).   I haven't worked up the level of dedication necessary to go to Florence to buy some of it.  But if anybody reading this has that level of dedication, please bring me some!
