Tour one of America's leading craft breweries, the largest in the Southeast, and learn about the brewing process and Abita's history. Shop for Abita merchandise, too--everything from t-shirts and koozies to keychains, glasses and more.
Tours last about 30 minutes and include four 4-ounce tastings of Abita beers. Tours are $10 per person, family-friendly (under 21 is free) and handicap accessible. Closed-toe shoes are required to tour the brew house. If you know the date of your visit, reservations can be made online. Spots are also held for walk-ins on every tour. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your tour time.
Another great family-friendly option would be a Craft Soda Tour! Learn about the local ingredients used and the process to brew Abita sodas. Tours last about 20 minutes and include drink samples. Craft Soda Tours are $5 per person and are family-friendly. Craft Soda tours are only available at certain times of the year so be sure to check for availability when booking your reservation.
Guided Tours are given Thursdays at 1 pm and 3 pm, and Friday through Sunday at 12 pm, 1 pm, 2 pm and 3 pm.
Self-guided tours are free and include access to the mezzanine level that overlooks the brew house tanks. You will be able to view videos about their beer and brewing process from a touchscreen device. Self-guided tours do not include beer samples, but you can purchase a pint in the Tap Room after exploring the brewery. Self-guided tours are available when guided tours are not offered.
