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.

Free soda samples and games. Tour free for kids and five dollars for adults includes 5 drink samples of beer and/or sodas. Friendly patriotic staff. Met two WWII veterans who visit periodically.

Awesome tour. Daryl & Rick did a great tour. At $5 for a guided tour, it's a good value and you get 4 tokens for 4 oz beers. An added plus is the samples they will give you.

$5 for the tour. You get 4 doubloons which gets you four 4oz tastes from the tasting bar. Cool place to hang with friends at the tap room. I like that they had flights so we could taste a bunch of different beers.

Very sparse inside with few products but really nice building and nice tshirts. We did not take the tour due to time but impressive for such a small town!

I have enjoyed Abita for sometime. Visited the tasting room with family and a 9 month old. They were more than welcoming and the beer was good. I was there several years ago and the brewery has grown quite a bit. The people are friendly...More
