Abita Brewing Company

Abita Brewing Company Since the turn of the century,people have been traveling to Abita Springs, Louisiana, for pure, clean-tasting water. Thus, with its fitting natural resources and small-town southern charm, it became clear to us that Abita Springs would be the perfect place to pioneer the freshest and most unique tasting beers available today. Established in 1986, Abita Brewing Company is proud to be the oldest craft brewery in the southeast and one of the oldest craft breweries in the United States. Today, Abita Brewing Company is poised to go from one of the top microbreweries in the country to a nationally renowned household beer.

  Abita Amber
Abita Amber is a Munich style lager brewed with crystal malt and Perle hops. It has a smooth, malty, slightly caramel flavor and a rich amber color. Abita Amber was the first beer offered by the brewery and continues to be our leading seller.
  Abita Bock
Abita Bock is the first of our seasonal brews and is available from January through March. It is brewed with Perle hops and British pale and caramel malts. Our Bock is similar to a German Maibock in its high malt content, full body and slightly higher alcohol content.
  Abita Golden
Abita Golden is a crisp, clean continental lager. Just four ingredients are all it takes: American malt, Mt. Hood hops, German lager yeast and pure Abita spring water. As the name applies, Abita Golden has a brilliant gold color. Its crisp, clean flavor makes this light lager the perfect match for Louisiana Creole food.
  Abita Light
Abita Light is uniquely hand-crafted using 100% all natural ingredients: malted barly, the finest hops, German lager yeast and pristine Abita Springs water. The result is the smoothest, most flavorful light beer you will ever taste.
  Abita Red Ale
It is brewed with British pale and crystal malts, Liberty hops and an ale yeast imported from Ireland. This ale has a rich ruby color, lacy collar, pronounced caramel flavor and is a tad "hoppier" than our other brews.
  Abita Turbodog
Abita Turbodog is a dark brown ale brewed with Willamette hops and a combination of British pale, crystal and chocolate malts. This combination gives Turbodog its rich body and color and a sweet chocolate-toffee like flavor. Turbodog began as a specialty ale but has gained a huge loyal following and has become one of our three flagship brews.
  Abita Wheat
German brewers discovered centuries ago that the addition of wheat produces a distinctively light, refreshing beer. Unlike traditional German wheat beers produced by other breweries, Abita Wheat is a lager, not an ale, and contains a generous amount of wheat and therefore, has a clean, simple flavor. For a change of pace, try Abita Wheat over ice with a twist of lemon.
A creature of the swamp, Andygator is a unique high gravity brew made with 2-row pale malt, German lager yeast, and Liberty hops. Unlike other high gravity brews, Andygator is fermented to a dry finish.
