Founded in 1986, Abita was the first craft brewery to open in the Southeast. Today, we produce 160,000 barrels of beer annually in a range of great tasting, unpretentious styles including Abita Amber, Purple Haze, and Wrought Iron IPA. Located just north of New Orleans, we recently completed a three-year, $30 million state-of-the-art expansion of the brewery that will increase our capacity to 400,000 barrels while introducing groundbreaking environmental advancements to the brewing process.

Beers were awesome, and Kimmy 'The Boss' Cross was more awesome. Thanks for the hospitality. The tap room was closed for renovations but should be open soon.

This place is a cute little place to have a relaxing time with friends and or family. It is across the road from the river so you can sit outside and have a beautiful view. They also have great food.

I always swing by on my bi-annual road trip. Good, fresh beer. Tours available for newbies, nice way to break up a trip.
