Abita Brewery Tour

Abita is an excellent local brewery based in Abita Springs, Louisiana, just north of Lake Pontchartrain from New Orleans. Last Saturday, Sam, Molly, James, and I drove up to Abita Springs to tour the Abita brewery and, more importantly, to sample their many delicious beers (all for free). They’re all pretty good, but the one I most highly recommend, if you can get it (it wasn’t available on the tour) is the Abbey Ale.

The core of the brewing operations: the Merlin Kettle, Lauter Tun, and Mash Tun.

No open-toed shoes allowed. It's blue booties for James and Sam.
