Jockamo Juicy IPA by Abita Brewing Co. is a delicious offering in the BJCP 21B Specialty IPA – New England IPA style. This one has exceptional aroma and flavor and really delivers on balance and drinkability.  There is a huge burst of a fresh blend of juicy and dank hop-like characters that makes itself well known the second that the can is opened. The Citra hop character is more notable than the rest. The ferment seems quite clean with little in the way of esters noted. There is a light base malt character in the background behind the hops. The beer pours a hazy light golden color with a moderate small-bubble white head with great retention. Juicy Citra hop flavor is up front with a nice complement of Simcoe-like dankness behind this. The base malt is present and, again, supports the hop flavor levels well. The flavor balance seen up front is retained throughout the drink well into the finish. Importantly, the late addition hop levers used in this brew do not deliver the lingering harshness typically seen in beers of this style. The body is medium, the carbonation is moderate, and the finish is pleasantly medium-dry. The overall fermentation character is very clean, as noted above, allowing the...
Abita Springs has been named a "Must Visit Small Town in Louisiana" ! "Back at the turn of the 20th century, New Orleanians with a few bucks used this town just across Lake Pontchartrain as an escape from the city when yellow fever gripped the populace. After the Depression, the colorful hotels where they used to frolic fell into disrepair. In the 1970s, a group of enterprising hippies brought them back to life. Now, they're private homes and B&Bs, lining the streets of the most hippie town on the Bayou. In addition to the cool old architecture, Abita Springs is also home to the regionally renowned Abita Brewing Company, and its “this tastes so good I should probably keep reminding myself it’s 8% ABV” Andygator pilsner. —MM"

When a fresh calendar year begins, it’s natural to start talking about resolutions. You know, the kind designed to make you a smarter, kinder, leaner, healthier version of yourself. New year, new you and all that noise. But 2020 was a doozy and 2021 arrived with the world still in the weeds. So give yourself a break. Skip “dry January” and just sip on lighter beers this month. (We’re still drinking stouts, sorry-not-sorry.) Historically, the word “light” in relation to beer was an alarm bell that screamed “no flavor!” But in recent years, the pendulum has swung in the other direction. Many of your favorite craft breweries are creating refreshing, full-flavored light beers that prove that low calorie doesn’t always need low flavor. Check out some of our favorite light beers below.
"Abita Office Party It’s the time for fun at home and … at work? Well, if you’re attending an office party and want to keep things fun but not too over-the-top fun, then you’d do well to steer clear of the spiked punch and instead sip on the rich and well-crafted Office Party from Abita. Made with pale, caramel and chocolate malts, to go along with Willamette hops, this beer really takes its cues from the cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg and cocoa nibs that are added into the recipe."
While seasonal beer shelves are ruled by pumpkin and marzen efforts this time of year, the Louisiana-based brewery offers something different, that includes some local flavor. Click here to read more!
Americans love beer. In 2018, we quaffed about 6.3 billion gallons of it in all, which works out to an average of roughly 26.2 gallons per adult of drinking age (not that adults of drinking age are the only ones consuming it, of course). The overwhelming majority of what we consume is mass-produced, most of it made by brands owned by one of two companies – Anheuser-Busch InBev or MillerCoors. More than 29 million barrels of the country’s single best-selling beer, Anheuser-Busch’s Bud Light, were shipped in 2018. In addition to Bud Light, these are the biggest beer brands in America.
