Article by Barin von Foregger, 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 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.

Long before it was legal for him to drink, David was experimenting with home brewing, making small batches of beer as a hobby.

Abita Brewing Talks Fruity Beer   By Loren Green  |  February 15, 2017 The beer scene is a quickly flowing river these days, with many unpredictable twists and turns within its dynamic current. With trends ranging from session beers to kettle sours to whatever weed was growing in the backyard, it can be hard to keep track of who is doing what because they believe in innovation and who’s just jumping on the bandwagon. Fruit beers have a long history, but recently breweries have used fruit to enhance the already present sweet notes in the hop and barley build of a beer, giving said beer an extra kick. “We love making fruit beers,” explains Abita’s brewmaster Mark Wilson. “It’s one of the things we’re known for. We want to use as much local produce as possible and we just want the fruit to enhance the flavor so you know you’re drinking beer.” Abita, New Orleans’ 31-year-old brewery, brews some well-known fruity beers, like the raspberry-infused Purple Haze and their spring seasonal Strawberry Lager. While grapefruit and orange IPAs are all the rage today, and cherry and raspberry sours are regular one-offs around the country, Abita has been brewing with strawberries, peaches, and...
Today is a great day for Abita Beer. This morning, everyone who works at the brewery came together to celebrate the wrap up of our three-year, $30 million dollar expansion. This expansion means exciting things for people who love Abita Beer. A brand new visitor center, a new and bigger gift shop, more tours each week and most importantly, in order to brew the finest craft beer possible, a state-of-the art brewhouse and cellar. We’ve come a long way since we started in 1986 in the tiny back room of what is now the Abita Brew Pub restaurant. We’re proud of the fact that we were the very first craft brewer – not just in Louisiana but in the entire southeast. And we’re proud of the role we played as a pioneer in the craft movement. Abita brews the beer that reflects the people, passion and culture of Louisiana. I knew when I was just 17 what I wanted to do with my life. I invested my teenage savings – all $2,500 of it – into what would become the Abita Brewery. Little did I know that one day I’d have one of the greatest jobs in Louisiana. I’m very...
