Abita Brewing Company - Abita Springs, Louisiana
Springs, LA – The Abita Brewing Company is proud to introduce Spring
I.P.A. as its newest seasonal brew. Spring India Pale Ale (I.P.A.)
is a West Coast-style I.P.A. with an up-front intense hop flavor and
“We’re excited to have another I.P.A. in the Abita family,” said
David Blossman, President of the Abita Brewing Company. “If you like
our Jockamo, you’re going to love this big, bold Spring I.P.A. It’s
a great pale ale that’s just right for this time of the year, when
the weather starts to warm up again.” The brew is made with both
Amarillo and Centennial hops for a rich and resinous flavor of
citrus and spice.
“Spring I.P.A. amplifies the spice in any meal,” said Blossman. “It
pairs well with Mexican or spicy Szechwan Chinese food. It’s great
with strongly flavored cheeses too, like sharp cheddar or goat
Abita Seasonal brews are available for a limited time and are brewed
in limited quantities. Each brew is custom created to match the time
of year when it is enjoyed. Spring I.P.A. makes its debut in March
and replaces Red Ale in the Abita Seasonal lineup.
“Red Ale was a hoppy beer and we hope that our customers will enjoy
the complex flavors and distinctive hop character of our new Spring
I.P.A.,” said Blossman. Spring I.P.A. has an ABV of 6.25%, IBU of 65
and the color is 9, or brilliant gold. Abita Brewing Company
Founded in 1986, the Abita Brewing Company is nestled in the piney
woods 30 miles north of New Orleans. In its first year, the brewery
produced 1,500 barrels of beer. We had no idea what we started.
Customers loved our beer! By 1994, we outgrew the original site (now
our 100 seat brew pub) and moved up the road to a larger facility to
keep up with demand.
We brew over 109,000 barrels of beer and 6,000 barrels of root beer
in our state of the art brewing facility. Our lagers and ales are
brewed in small batches, hand-crafted by a team of dedicated workers
with only the highest ideals of quality. This pride, along with our
brewing process, is what creates our great brews.
Abita uses only the finest ingredients – British and North American
malted barley, German and American yeast strains, Pacific Northwest
hops and the pure artesian water of Abita Springs.
In Abita, we are blessed with the purest of water. Drawn from our
deep wells, our pristine water is not altered in any way.
Abita Beer has no preservatives, additives or stabilizers and is
cold filtered. The result is beer that is the finest and freshest
tasting as proven by our loyal customers and great chefs of the
south who use Abita Beer in their recipes.
