Abita Brewing Company Adds Strawberry Lager to Year-Round Lineup

AbitaStrawberryLagerAbita Brewing Company (Abita Springs, Louisiana) has officially announced that its wildly popular Strawberry Lager is now available year-round throughout its full distribution area.

Previously only available as a fan-favorite Seasonal offering, Abita Strawberry Lager starts with a Lager base – made with Pilsner and Wheat malts and Vanguard hops – that is then infused with “juicy, ripe Louisiana strawberries, harvested at the peak of the season.” Truly perfect for any time of the year, the incredibly crisp Abita Strawberry Lager (4.2% ABV) is “light gold . . . with a subtle haze and strawberry flavor and aroma.”

“We created Strawberry Lager 15 years ago for a local strawberry festival and it took off immediately, becoming one of our most sought-after seasonal brews,” says David Blossman, President & CEO of Abita Brewing Co. “It was the first strawberry beer produced in the state. Fans have made it clear that they want it year-round, and we now have the capacity to make it year-round.”

Abita Strawberry Lager is available now in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles, 6-packs of 12 oz. cans, 19.2 oz. cans and on draft.  You can expect to find this Year-Round offering at craft beer-friendly establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, and throughout the rest of Abita Brewing Company’s distribution network.  Prost!
