Bell's Oberon // American Pale Wheat Ale // 5.8% ABV 

One of HopCat's best parnerships is FeelGood Tap, in which Michigan breweries donate proceeds from a selected beer to be donated to a Michigan nonprofit, rotating monthly. 

For April, $1 from every Bell's Oberon sold will benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society to raise money for research and treatment for this unpredictable and often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain and between the brain and body.
