National Bohemian Beer Company donated $10,000 in October to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation as part of its annual Tabs for Crabs fundraiser.
For every red, crab-etched beer can tab returned to National Bohemian, the company pledged to donate 10 cents, up to $10,000. The company collected more than 90,000 tabs from customers throughout the Mid-Atlantic and opted to donate the full target amount of $10,000. Last year the company donated 85,000 tabs.
Natty Boh — while no longer brewed in Baltimore — remains a local favorite.
"2018's program proved to be a continuation of consumers' love and support of two great local favorites – Natty Boh and the Chesapeake Bay," C-Mo Molloy, National Bohemian brand manager, said in a news release. "We love that the community again embraced Tabs for Crabs and came together for a fun, easy way to do good and protect the beauty of our beloved regional landmark, the Chesapeake Bay."
The Chesapeake Bay Foundation is putting the funds toward overall Chesapeake Bay restoration efforts to improve water quality, according to a representative.
