Founded in 1986, the Abita Brewing Company is nestled in the piney woods 30 miles north of New Orleans.


In its first year, the brewery produced 1,500 barrels of beer. We had no idea what we started. Customers loved our beer! By 1994, we outgrew the original site (now our 100-seat brew pub) and moved up the road to a larger facility to keep up with demand.
