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.

For over 30 years we’ve been proud to call Louisiana home & have always understood our responsibility to be a good member of our community. Over the next several months, we plan to keep Culture on Tap by spotlighting & sharing some of our favorite Louisiana artists & local businesses that have the same passion for their work as we do. We hope this helps bring awareness & support to their business when they need it most. The next local group we want to feature is Tank and the Bangas. This grammy nominated band is based out of New Orleans and met at an open mic night in the 2011. Almost instantly, this group knew that they had something that stirred crowds that wanted original music from them. They can go as hard as a rock band, but effortlessly transition into a funky groove or softer passages that evoke smooth R&B. If you've been lucky enough to see them live, you know what we're talking about. Be sure to look for them this October at French Quarter Festival 2020! Wondering how you can support Tank and the Bangas? Take a minute & visit their website at https://bit.ly/2R1xr6u. If you jump over to their Instagram, you can check out what they have recently...
