This place had excellent food. We had the stuffed quail and highly recommend the pecan crusted catfish and the yummy bread pudding not to mention the great beer.

Shop is nice, but can be crowded. Tour is somewhat short., but informative. Video on brewery history is good. Tasting is very cool, lots of options - and FREE.

This is an awesome way to kill some time in Covington / Northshore area. There is a closed toe shoe policy, so if you wear flip flops, you gotta put these little plastic bag booties on...kind of weird. Just go ahead and wear closed toe shoes. There are games in the taproom to pass the time, great patio for when... More

Part of the charm of this local pub, is the small town in which it resides - Abita Springs, LA. Originally this was a healing spa town for wealthy New Orleanians to escape yellow fever & other summer diseases. The pub serves a wide variety of beers brewed in Abita, and as with most Louisiana restaurants, the food is great.... More

My son and I were looking for something to do on a Saturday afternoon. The Abita fit the bill perfectly! We went thinking we could sample some beer and we had an excellent time (you don't even have to take the tour.

So we weren't just thrilled over this beer, but for a light, refreshing brew it wasn't bad. Citrus notes, finishes clean. But then, we're spoiled living in Colorado where you can get any type of microbrew imaginable haha

Went here to taste the Abita beer, had a few and all were average for a micro brewery, other problem was beer had very little carbonation and almost tasted flat, food was good but pricey, the bartender seem to simply ignore me for the first 3-4 minutes I was at the bar in front of her and really was not...

Got a chance to visit the Abita Brewery and their Brew Pub while in New Orleans for a few days and I was overwhelmed by the employees and staff there. From my server in the restaurant to the tour staff, tasting room and gift shop staff, their main concern was making me feel welcome and being sure that I got... More

...then this is the tour for you. There is no charge for the tour, which begins with brief intro about the company and the beers. Then the bar opens. For half an hour you are welcome to pour yourself samples of any of the beers (or root beer) that are on tap. Then the actual tour begins. It lasts about... More

Tour last about an hour, but most of the time is spent in the bar area sampling beers and watching a video. The tour itself is only about 5-10 minutes
