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. Abita had no idea what they started. Customers loved our beer!
By 1994, they outgrew the original site (now our 100 seat brew pub) and moved up
the road to a larger facility to keep up with demand.
Abita brews over 80,000 barrels of beer and 5,000 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
