In year one, the brewery produced 1,500 barrels of beer and by 1994, they outgrew the original site (now their 100-seat brew pub) and moved up the road to a larger facility to keep up with demand. The brewery now brews more than 151,000 barrels of beer and 9,100 barrels of root beer. Their lagers and ales are brewed in small batches, hand-crafted by a team of dedicated workers with only the highest ideals of quality, and has been recognized nationally as one of the top craft breweries in the United States.
Tobin’s Review 3 out of 5
Abita Blueberry Wheat has a light golden hue with a small head, that pops with strong fruity blueberry notes. The beer is light in nature, and you can pick up a hint of fruit in the flavor. It’s not an overly fruity beer and is well-balanced!
