2018 Beer Release Calendar The new year is here and we're looking forward to another great year of brews! We've been hard at work behind the scenes planning for 2018 and wanted to share some of what we've been working on. Our 2018 Beer Release Calendar is everything we'll be releasing and boiled down to one single sheet. It's our brew bible! Of course, most of your favorites are back, but as you'll see we're bringing some beers you might recognize out of retirement and releasing a ton of new beers. In all, we'll brew and package 31 beers in 2018 and that's not counting the tons of beers we'll be experimenting with and releasing on our pilot system here at the brewery. A big change in our lineup is the change of our Select Series to our new Limited Series. The idea behind the series will remain the same. These limited offerings will be where we experiment with new styles and flavors and try new things, but instead of the beer being sold in 22 oz. bottles like it has in the past, we're making the switch to 6pk carriers. In 2018, we'll release five new brews in all (not including our new Maison Blanc)....

Updated 3/10: 2016 is a milestone year for us here at Abita. For one thing, we turn 30! That isn’t all though, because in coordination with that 30th anniversary, we’re unveiling new designs and an overall new look and feel for our packaging. You can expect to see the new looks for our flagship brews, seasonal brews and harvest series on shelves this month! You’ll see these changes, but we want to be very clear that even though the bottles may look refreshingly different on the outside, your favorite brews inside will taste exactly the same! WE REPEAT: NEW LOOK, SAME GREAT TASTE! Our new look is inspired by the art, culture, history and colors of New Orleans. The personality of the city is showcased through eccentric new characters and quintessential New Orleans scenes depicted on the packaging. You may also notice that your favorite bottles of Abita brews are back in basket carriers. The first bottles we offered debuted in baskets, making it fitting to return to them after all these years. We made the change after listening to you, our fans, regarding your choice of baskets over wraps. The new baskets allow for ease of use and give...
