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.
