To Friends & Fans, At Abita, our top priority is the health and safety of our employees, visitors, and community. Following Governor Edwards guidelines & CDC recommendations, we’ve decided that the Visitor Center and Tap Room will be closed to visitors beginning Tuesday, March 17th.  We know that many of you care deeply about our Abita family. We want to assure you that our team will be taken care of and that none of our co-workers have been diagnosed with COVID-19 at this time. We want to apologize for the inconvenience and we appreciate your understanding. ⁠We’ll be sure to keep you updated through our social media and website. Production is not stopping! We will continue to make great beer for everyone in a safe environment for our business-critical staff. We also want to encourage our fans to take this opportunity to support their communities. With modern technology there are so many ways to check in with family, friends and neighbors. If you have the means, please consider buying gift certificates from your favorite bars and restaurants as they adapt to the changes around us. We know this takes a community and we look forward to having a beer with you...
To Abita Brewery fans & friends, At Abita Brewing Co. our top priority is the safety & health of our coworkers, fans, & community around us. The ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) developments are at the forefront of our minds and this is why we wanted to share with you the measures we are taking here at the Tap Room. We have increased cleaning of all surfaces, keeping spaces sanitized, implemented guidelines to our tour guides and beer leads on hand-washing and ensuring that any staff member that feels sick does not come into work. We are only using disposable plastic cups and are encouraging everyone to bus their own area. We will continue to closely monitor the situation with the guidance of the CDC and local government officials for any additional recommendations. We will remain open during normal business hours and tours are still scheduled to run but we will keep everyone updated with any changes involving events and tours. We know this requires a community effort and we thank you for doing your part as well. Cheers, Abita Brewing Company

Just half an hour north of New Orleans, Abita Springs (population: 2,300) overlooks Lake Pontchartrain, seemingly a world away. Once a Chocktaw tribe village, it’s become a bucket list destination for beer lovers thanks to Abita Brewing Company, where brews like raspberry-tinged Purple Haze and the Big Easy IPA are made from British barley and water from their onsite wells. Fans of folk art come from around the world to visit the Abita Mystery House, hidden behind an old gas station. Inside, there are more than 1,000 found objects and homemade inventions including an Airstream that has been hit by a UFO and a dog/alligator sculpture that can’t adequately be described in words. The no-frills Abita Springs Café may not like much, but the food is killer: we love the breakfast burrito, shrimp po’boys and fried onion rings. Work off your meal with a bike ride on the Tammany Trace, a 31-mile trail along a former railroad corridor.
With so many breweries, it can be difficult to determine the best spots to get the most bang for your buck. A recent analysis by lifestyle website House Method examined the most popular brewery in each state, using social media metrics including the number of Facebook and Instagram followers, Yelp score, and the number of Yelp reviews. The study considered data from more than 2,200 breweries around the US before determining the 50 most popular breweries in each state.
Roasty And Resonant (Abita Springs, LA) – Abita Brewing is returning a favorite limited release that’s crafted using the pristine artesian water of Abita Springs, Louisiana. Brewed with pale, caramel, chocolate and roasted malts that deliver the beer’s intensely dark color and flavor, Abita Macchiato Espresso Milk Stout is a 6% ABV seasonal that combines the rich flavor of roasted coffee and natural milk sugar with a full-bodied stout.

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...

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...
