Save a Reef With Veza Sur
Giving back has never been easier (or more fun) this holiday season! Through Veza Sur’s new partnership with Coral Restoration Foundation™, every purchase of a SOUTH COAST IPA will benefit Coral Restoration Foundation’s mission to restore the coral reefs off the coast of our beloved city.
Why is it so important to save our coral reefs? Coral reefs are vital ecosystems that support more than a million species and provide crucial coastal protection. They act as a physical barrier between the ocean and land, dissipating up to 97% of wave energy, mitigating hurricane damage and coastal erosion, and protecting coastal infrastructure, including the homes and businesses of our Miami familia.
You can support this great initiative by purchasing SOUTH COAST IPA beers at Veza Sur’s Wynwood pub or at your local Publix, Whole Foods, Total Wine and more.
