Obviously, I enjoy the beer but really enjoy the family feel. Even being an employee not based in Louisiana it always feels like coming home when I make a trip back to the brewery.

Jordan Johnson
I love meeting and talking to visitors from around the US/World and educating them on our great beers!

Jimmy Morano
My favorite 3 things about working at Abita are the great people, sharing the town I live in and love with visitors, and of course the beer!

Founded in 1986...
The Abita Brewing Company is nestled in the piney woods 30 miles north of New Orleans. In its first year, the brewery produced 1,500 barrels of beer. We had no idea what we started. Customers loved our beer! By 1994, we outgrew the original site (now our 100-seat brew pub) and moved up the road to a larger facility to keep up with demand. We brew more than 151,000 barrels of beer and 9,100 barrels of root beer in our state-of-the-art brewing facility. Our lagers and ales are brewed in small batches, hand-crafted by a team of dedicated workers with only the highest ideals of quality. This pride, along with our brewing process, is what creates our great brews. We are privately owned and operated by local shareholders, many who have been with us since day one.
