The Abita Brewing Company is one of the more popular gathering places for this small town of about 2,000. They offer a full-service restaurant, which is housed in the renovated building where they used to brew and bottle their beers up until 1994. It features handcrafted cypress window frames, a bar made from cypress and slate, and beaded wainscoting. From either of the two dining rooms, one of which can be reserved for private parties, visitors have a view of the Tammany Trace Hiking Trail. From the main dining room, there is also a view of the 15-barrel brewhouse.
Within this wonderfully designed brewpub, they also manage to brew some tasty beverages, including root beer. Some of the styles of beer they brew are bock, wheat, amber, golden, red ale, fall fest (Oktoberfest), purple haze (Raspberry Wheat), Christmas Ale, the TurboDog, and a German Style beer called AndyGator. Not only do they bottle their beers for sale, they also have some specialty beers that only available at the brewpub.
