Where is Abita Beer sold in my neighborhood?
Find Abita Beer near you with our product locator.
Where can I find the packaged on 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. The date is applied on the bottling line within seconds of the bottle or can being filled and capped. Look for the date on the neck of the bottle or the bottom of the can. Starting in January 2021, we now use a "packaged on" Julian dating system.
What is the shelf life of your products?
The shelf life of our beer cans and bottles is 5 months (150 days), and the shelf life of our kegs is 180 days after the “born on“ date on the keg ring.
Soda, Spring Loaded, Legit Hard Lemonade have a one year shelf life.

When will Abita Strawberry Harvest Lager be available?
Strawberry Lager is now available year round! Similar to wine with grape harvest, we have worked closely with our Louisiana famers to ensure enough berries are harvested to last throughout the year, allowing us to deliver the fresh taste of strawberries to you guys year round.
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.”
