OK food. Nice grounds. Hard to find. We went with a big group. Wish there was some more special beers that i couldn't get anywhere else.

Abita Beer is becoming a favorite locally and all over the world. Special tours of the brewery and beer tastings are given free. They are very informative. Food card recipes with beer descriptions on the reverse side(kinda neat and useful). Do check for times and go early for a ticket to get in the next tour!! The brewery is located... More

Nice little brewery. It is amazing to see how suck a small brewery is getting their tasty beverage so far out there. I am a fan.

The brewer offers free 1 hour tours and tasting. There is no skimping on the tasting but you have limited time - about an hour. The folks that run the tours are great. There is a gift shop and some specialties you can purchase. They brew root beer and though I'm not much of a soft drink person, the root... More

Stopped by for a cold brew and added an order of fried artichoke hearts - wow! These were perfect with the seasonal dark beer we enjoyed. Definitely will be returning - maybe by bicycle since this place is adjacent to a "Rails to Trails" bike path conversion. Highly recommended.

Check their website for tour times. I'd recommend getting to the brewery 30 minutes early. You can sample many of their micro-brews as well as their Root Beer before the tour starts. The tour itself is not too long, probably about 15 minutes, but is fun and informative. They sell all of the Abita swag in the tasting area too.... More

This restaurant sits right off the Tammany Trace bike path, so my husband and I stopped in during a lengthy bike ride. We were ravenously hungry and after a consultation with the bartender/server, both ordered hamburgers as the waiter described them as always delicious, the restaurant's specialty. The hamburgers that were served were both practically black after having been torturously... More

My husband and I visited on a Saturday and arrived at 12:20. We weren't allowed into the tasting room until the 12:00 tour cleared out at 1:00...even after we mentioned we just wanted a flight and not a tour. We've been to a dozen other breweries and enjoy the laid back environment. We went over to the brew pub instead... More
