ABITA SPRINGS, LA – Louisiana’s first and largest craft brewery, Abita Brewing Company, introduces a guilt-free IPA offering to meet the demands of the evolving beer drinker – Hop 99. This Light IPA, which contains only 99 calories and 2.7 carbohydrates, will be available for purchase year-round beginning late September in all markets Abita beer is sold. As the craft brewing industry continues to evolve, the team at Abita sought to break into a new category and brew a more sessionable beer without sacrificing the craft taste for long-time patrons and new craft beer drinkers. Hop 99 is a sessionable IPA at 4.2% ABV making it an ideal choice for after a run, taking a break from yard work or a long day of tailgating. “Hop 99 is the result of our brewing team and our patrons evolving together,” says David Blossman, President & CEO of Abita Brewing Co. “This beer gave us the challenge to create a flavor-forward, drinkable IPA, while it gives beer drinkers a craft-forward, sessionable option that significantly cuts the amount of carbohydrates and calories normally found in an IPA, or any category for that matter.” Hop 99 is one of the first of this emerging...
ABITA SPRINGS, LA (June 26, 2019) – The team at Louisiana’s first and largest craft brewery, Abita Brewing Company, has listened to the pleas of its loyal patrons and partners across the country and announced seasonal favorite Abita Strawberry Lager is now available year-round to customers. As one of the most anticipated seasonal beers among Abita’s repertoire, the craft brew’s availability will increase from three months out of the year to 365 days per year. Abita Strawberry Lager will continue to be distributed to each of its current markets across the United States. “We created Strawberry Lager 15 years ago for a local strawberry festival and it took off immediately, becoming one of our most sought-after seasonal brews,” says David Blossman, President & CEO of Abita Brewing Co. “It was the first strawberry beer produced in the state. Fans have made it clear that they want it year-round, and we now have the capacity to make it year-round.” The only beer brewed with Louisiana strawberries, the crisp lager is made with Pilsner and Wheat malts and Vanguard hops, resulting in a light gold lager with a subtle haze and strawberry flavor and aroma. Similar to wine with grape harvest, the...

Article by Barin von Foregger, Grillax.com When creating unique dishes in Grillax Nation, it’s all about a really good marinade … and we think you’ll love our dark beer marinade. With seafood, you want to go light. With beef, you want to go heavy. With chicken … the sky’s the limit! [Abita Turbodog] Abita Turbodog is perfect for a dark beer marinade. You will generally see the usual suspects when putting together your own marinade — salt, pepper, vinegar, etc. If you are looking to add a unique twist to your next marinade, pour in your favorite ale. But save some for the glass, too. We suggest you give Abita Turbodog a try. It’s a dark brown ale brewed with pale, caramel, and chocolate malts and Willamette hops. This combination gives Turbodog a rich body, deep color and a sweet chocolate, toffee-like flavor. The Beer Marinade 1/2 cup dark beer (We like Abita Turbodog) 1 cup apple cider vinegar 1 Tbsp light olive oil 1 Tbsp Kosher salt 1 Tbsp white pepper 1 Tbsp garlic powder 1 tsp chili powder 1 red onion, diced Combine all ingredients and use as a marinade or grilling sauce.

Story by Nora McGunnigle for GoNOLA.com The Emeril Lagasse Foundation’s eighth annual Boudin, Bourbon & Beer is happening on November 9 in Champion Square, and founding sponsor Abita Beer will be providing the third “B” in BB&B as always, reminding us that a Louisiana-made beer is the best to pair with this unique, Louisiana food. There are almost as many beer styles at the event as there will be dishes (more than 70, which is the event’s largest number of chefs yet) and each dish has a perfect beer to complement it. Multiple bars and beer trailers will be dispensing Amber, Hop-On IPA, The Boot, Turbodog®, Andygator®, Purple Haze®, Wrought Iron IPA, 30° 90° Citra-dry hopped lager, Christmas Ale Seasonal, Grapefruit Honey Lager Harvest Seasonal, and Office Party spiced stout. There also will be the opportunity to have your beer AND your bourbon cocktail in one glass because two of the beers in Bourbon Street Series collection will be poured this year: Old Fashioned Pale Ale and Rye Pale Ale. Since the event also profiles bourbon, the bourbon-barrel aged beers are a nice tip of the hat to the overall theme of BB&B. To get into the spirit of pairing the beers with boudin,...

Story by an Account Staff Reporter for The Advocate Brewers from across Louisiana are putting their heads together for something special. The Louisiana Craft Brewers Guild today announced it is launching a collaboration brew to be released during Louisiana Craft Beer Week. The beer, a Double IPA, is the first in a new, annual Ensemble Series, and is set to be released Sept. 24. Louisiana Craft Beer Week runs Sept. 24-30. For the Ensemble Series, brewers will come together each year and decide on the style and recipe and brew the beer at the host brewery, the Guild said in a press release. This year, Abita Brewing Company will host the inaugural brew on Sept. 7. "There are 33 breweries that are members of the Guild and to be able to come together and work on a single brew that everyone can stand behind speaks volumes on how well we work together," said Karlos Knott, President of Bayou Teche and the Guild, in the announcement. The hazy IPA will be made with pale malt, wheat oats and Calypso, Lemondrop, Citra, Centennial and Amarillo hops. Expect an 8 percent ABV. The beer will be sold in limited release six-packs around the...
