Join us this Thursday from 5:00-7:00 pm for a sampling of Abita Brewing Co. beers. We’ll have Arnaldo and Ralph from Abita on-hand to answer your questions! We’re drinking to Save Our Shore this week!
ABITA Restoration Ale:
“Restoration Pale Ale is made with Pale, Lager, Crystal and Cara Pils malted barley. It is liberally hopped and dry hopped with American Cascade and fermented with California Ale yeast. The end result is a brilliant gold ale with a rich body, mild bitterness and a snappy fresh citrus hop flavor and aroma. This beer can be paired with many different dishes according to your taste. The citrus flavor and aroma make it an excellent choice with most fish, especially ones that are prepared to match the flavor of the beer. American, Muenster, Havarti and Monterey Jack cheeses pair well with Restoration.” [5.0% abv]
ABITA Pecan Harvest (seasonal):
“Pecan Harvest Ale is made with real Louisiana pecans that have been toasted to perfection. That makes it something really special, because most beers with a nutty flavor or aroma aren’t made with real nuts. The natural oils from the Louisiana pecans give the ale a light pecan finish and aroma. This ale is excellent served with both red meat, seafood, gouda cheese, and no surprise here, it’s also great with nuts! Try Pecan Harvest with Gouda cheese.” [ 5.0% abv]
ABITA “Save Our Shore” Imperial Pilsner:
“This Abita Beer is a message in a bottle…a distress signal for the troubled waters of our Gulf Coast. For every bottle sold Abita will donate 75¢ to the rescue and restoration of the environment, industry and individuals fighting to survive this disastrous oil spill. This unfiltered Weizen Pils is made with Pilsner and Wheat malts. It is hopped and dry hopped with Sterling and German Perle hops. It has a brilliant gold color, a sweet malt flavor, and a pleasant bitterness and aroma. In addition, related retail merchandise (hat, tee shirt, lapel pin, decal and car magnet) will be sold and 100% of the net proceeds will also go to the SOS Fund.” [7.0% abv]
