Where can I find the expiration date on your products?
The Abita Brewing Company wants to ensure that our products are enjoyed at the peak of freshness, so every bottle and can is dated.

What is the shelf life of your products?
The shelf life of our cans and bottles is 5 months, and the shelf life of our kegs is 90 days after the “born on“ date on the keg ring.

When will Abita Strawberry Harvest Lager be available?

What’s the difference between an ale and a lager?
There are three main differences --
In general, ales are made with top fermenting yeast and lagers with bottom fermenting yeast.
- Temperature of fermentation
Ales ferment typically between 64 and 70 degrees F, and lagers ferment generally between 52 and 58 F.
Ales can be described as “hearty, robust and fruity” and lagers are referred to as being “crisp, clean, and smooth.”
