IT ALL STARTED WITH A BEER
Abita Brew Pub is the home of Abita Beer, where the beers were brewed & bottled until April 1994. We serve salads, sandwiches, burgers, pastas and exclusive Abita Beer selections. With indoor and outdoor dining, the unique location is nestled under live oaks featuring handcrafted cypress window frames, a cypress and slate bar, and a retail area with merchandise.
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 more than 151,000 barrels of beer and 9,100 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.
