ABITA SPRINGS, LA – Louisiana’s first and largest craft brewery, Abita Brewing Company, introduces a guilt-free IPA offering to meet the demands of the evolving beer drinker – Hop 99. This Light IPA, which contains only 99 calories and 2.7 carbohydrates, will be available for purchase year-round beginning late September in all markets Abita beer is sold. As the craft brewing industry continues to evolve, the team at Abita sought to break into a new category and brew a more sessionable beer without sacrificing the craft taste for long-time patrons and new craft beer drinkers. Hop 99 is a sessionable IPA at 4.2% ABV making it an ideal choice for after a run, taking a break from yard work or a long day of tailgating. “Hop 99 is the result of our brewing team and our patrons evolving together,” says David Blossman, President & CEO of Abita Brewing Co. “This beer gave us the challenge to create a flavor-forward, drinkable IPA, while it gives beer drinkers a craft-forward, sessionable option that significantly cuts the amount of carbohydrates and calories normally found in an IPA, or any category for that matter.” Hop 99 is one of the first of this emerging...

Fans have made it clear that they want it year-round, and we now have the capacity to make it year-round.” The only beer brewed with Louisiana strawberries, the crisp lager is made with Pilsner and Wheat malts and Vanguard hops, resulting in a light gold lager with a subtle haze and strawberry flavor and aroma.

The Abita Brewing Company is proud to announce their craft-brewed root beer will now be available in cans. The naturally caffeine-free root beer that’s made with pure Louisiana cane sugar will soon be available in cans for the very first time. “Ever since we launched Abita beer in cans, people have been asking for our root beer in cans too,” said David Blossman, president of Abita Beer. “It’s the same great old-fashioned root beer you’ve loved for years, but now you can get it in portable, recyclable 12-pack aluminum cans. Abita root beer fans can bring it along to their next picnic, soccer game or pack it in their lunchbox.” Abita root beer will also continue to be sold in six-pack glass bottles. Abita has been craft brewing their root beer for over 20 years. The drink is made with herbs, vanilla and yucca (which creates the foam), and it is sweetened with Louisiana sugar cane rather than the corn syrups that are the standard of the large soft-drink makers. The root beer is hot brewed rather than cold mixed, and there’s no caffeine – it would have to be artificially added to the soft drink, and that’s not the...
