Blast at Abita Brewery


Luckily it looks like it was just one vat that overpressurized during cleaning, and no one was hurt. Abita make a very high quality amber along with its signature Turbodog (among others). Based out of Louisiana, its beers flow freely and abundantly on Bourbon Street. That's where I first encountered the Amber. I believe I drunkenly texted Gish as to its quality ("this is bleeping good stuff!!")
I hope they get back and running quickly. I know their brew is available on tap at Buffalo Wild Wings and I want to say Barrelhead, or pick up a 6'er, you won't be disappointed.
