Podcast and Article by Poppy Tooker | April 4, 2018 Abita Beer President David Blossman has always been a man ahead of his time. Long before it was legal for him to drink, David was experimenting with home brewing, making small batches of beer as a hobby. At 17 years old, he invested his teenage savings into what would become the Abita Brewing Company. Over 30 years later, he's the top dog! On this Louisiana Eats Quick Bite, we speak with David about Abita's pioneering role in the craft beer movement, their relationship with the community, and a special tricentennial tribute to New Orleans, Maison Blanc. Abita’s 2018 limited edition release was crafted to celebrate New Orleans 300th birthday.  “Maison Blanc has the mild, dry flavor you seek in your favorite house white wine, with the delicious crisp characteristics of Savignon blanc grapes.  Maison Blanc combines the best of both worlds to be enjoyed by beer and wine lovers alike.

2018 Beer Release Calendar The new year is here and we're looking forward to another great year of brews! We've been hard at work behind the scenes planning for 2018 and wanted to share some of what we've been working on. Our 2018 Beer Release Calendar is everything we'll be releasing and boiled down to one single sheet. It's our brew bible! Of course, most of your favorites are back, but as you'll see we're bringing some beers you might recognize out of retirement and releasing a ton of new beers. In all, we'll brew and package 31 beers in 2018 and that's not counting the tons of beers we'll be experimenting with and releasing on our pilot system here at the brewery. A big change in our lineup is the change of our Select Series to our new Limited Series. The idea behind the series will remain the same. These limited offerings will be where we experiment with new styles and flavors and try new things, but instead of the beer being sold in 22 oz. bottles like it has in the past, we're making the switch to 6pk carriers. In 2018, we'll release five new brews in all (not including our new Maison Blanc)....
