New Year Brings New Opportunity with Libre Rum & Cola ABITA SPRINGS, LA – Abita Brewing Company, is kicking off 2021 with the launch of Libre Rum & Cola, a Ready-to-Drink (RTD) cocktail available in 4-packs of 12oz cans. “Consumers are looking for convenience without having to sacrifice quality. We started development with the goal of crafting the best tasting rum and cola by utilizing the highest quality, all-natural ingredients,” said David Blossman, President and CEO of Abita Brewing Company. “Our Rum & Cola gives you the craftsmanship of a premium-classic cocktail to enjoy at any time or occasion, in the convenience of a can.” Libre Rum & Cola is an all-natural distilled spirits cocktail made with imported, three-year oak barrel aged rum, cola crafted with raw cane sugar and a twist of natural lime juice.

When a fresh calendar year begins, it’s natural to start talking about resolutions. You know, the kind designed to make you a smarter, kinder, leaner, healthier version of yourself. New year, new you and all that noise. But 2020 was a doozy and 2021 arrived with the world still in the weeds. So give yourself a break. Skip “dry January” and just sip on lighter beers this month. (We’re still drinking stouts, sorry-not-sorry.) Historically, the word “light” in relation to beer was an alarm bell that screamed “no flavor!” But in recent years, the pendulum has swung in the other direction. Many of your favorite craft breweries are creating refreshing, full-flavored light beers that prove that low calorie doesn’t always need low flavor. Check out some of our favorite light beers below.
Happy New Years! Our tap room staff will be taking a much needed Holiday break so The Abita Tap Room will be closed all week (starting 1/1/21). Happy New Year!
"Abita Office Party It’s the time for fun at home and … at work? Well, if you’re attending an office party and want to keep things fun but not too over-the-top fun, then you’d do well to steer clear of the spiked punch and instead sip on the rich and well-crafted Office Party from Abita. Made with pale, caramel and chocolate malts, to go along with Willamette hops, this beer really takes its cues from the cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg and cocoa nibs that are added into the recipe."

ABITA SPRINGS, LA – Louisiana’s original and largest craft brewery, Abita Brewing Company, is adding a new brew to its annual lineup. Jockamo Juicy IPA, a Double Dry Hopped India Pale Ale that has an intense hop flavor and aroma, will be available beginning this week at retail locations. “Our take on the IPA started over 12 years ago in 2008 when we originally released Jockamo, the first IPA crafted in Louisiana, to celebrate our rich and unique culture through the beer’s bold flavor” said David Blossman, President and CEO of Abita Brewing Company. “This new juicy style of Jockamo is an even bolder IPA, with intense hop flavors and aromas. Featuring brighter, more tropical tones, this beer pours a vivacious gold color with a distinguishing haze.” “Jockamo Juicy IPA is the result of our brewing team testing new experimental hops and piloting numerous combinations and variations,” says Mark Wilson, Brewmaster of Abita Brewing Co. “We used this as an opportunity to highlight a blend of these experimental hops, in addition to Citra and Apollo hops, to give Jockamo its tropical-forward flavor and aroma.” Jockamo Juicy IPA will be available in 6-packs of 12-oz cans and draft in grocery stores,...
While seasonal beer shelves are ruled by pumpkin and marzen efforts this time of year, the Louisiana-based brewery offers something different, that includes some local flavor. Click here to read more!
Americans love beer. In 2018, we quaffed about 6.3 billion gallons of it in all, which works out to an average of roughly 26.2 gallons per adult of drinking age (not that adults of drinking age are the only ones consuming it, of course). The overwhelming majority of what we consume is mass-produced, most of it made by brands owned by one of two companies – Anheuser-Busch InBev or MillerCoors. More than 29 million barrels of the country’s single best-selling beer, Anheuser-Busch’s Bud Light, were shipped in 2018. In addition to Bud Light, these are the biggest beer brands in America.
