Tour is short but the information and tastings are top notch. Really enjoyed taking my dad as well as it seemed a fun family friendly (above 21) stop.

I use the biking trace every Sunday with my wife. We start biking in I-12 and go to Covington passing Abita Springs. We stop on the way back for lunch and beer in Abita Brewing Company. It is a busy restaurant visited mainly by locals. They serve local food and a great varieties of their beers. The food is served... More

Went to the Abita Brewery on our way to New Orleans (followed by a fun trip over Lake Ponchetrain to New Orleans). Check the hours/days before you visit but this was such a fun stop on our trip to New Orleans. I expected to pay at least something to go into the brewery but what a pleasant surprise to find...

Short tour and lots of free beer! What is not to like? The Abita Brew Pub (where the beer was originally brewed) is about a mile away. Great pub food.

We really like this restaurant as it's in the heart of Abita Springs, and serves Abita beer. The food is good. Sometimes the service is spotty, but the food is always good.

First, there seems to be some confusion in the reviews between the Abita Brewpub in Abita Springs, which sells food as well as Abita beers and this place, the actual brewery on Highway 36 between Abita Springs and Covington. There's no food here, but plenty of free beer! We've taken these types of brewery tours across America and they're usually... More

Our southern California friends who were visiting were very pleasantly surprised that this little brewery made such wonderful beer! What pleased them most was the brewery's suggestion to blend different beers for a completely new flavor! We had a great time sampling the many different beers at Abita Brewing Co.

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.
