Abita Bock

The grand finale of Carnival season is just one week away! Mardi Gras or “Fat Tuesday” is without a doubt the biggest party of the year in New Orleans and arguably the entire Southeast. So, to get you all ready for this raucous occasion, we have Abita’s celebratory Mardi Gras Bock hitting the market this week.

Abita Bock is most similar in style to a German Maibock, a style of Bock brewed each year in Germany for spring festivals. Maibocks are predominately rich and malty brews, but are paler in color, slightly hoppier and a touch less malty than their bigger Bock brethren. Abita’s Bock is a 6.5% full bodied brew with a beautiful medium-amber hue, sweet caramel notes from the malt and just a the right amount of bitterness to keep you coming back for more. This brew would be delicious with spicy barbeque or roasted pork and is a classic pairing with Emmental Swiss.

Don’t be late to the big party….grab your beads and pick up a 6-pack of Abita Bock today!

Founded in 1986, Abita is the oldest and largest craft brewer in the Southeastern United States with production well exceeding 120,ooo barrels per year. And in case you didn’t know, Abita is one of the few breweries in the country that doesn’t need to filter or treat their water. The brewery’s ideal location, on the home of the Southern Hills aquifer system, allows them to produce all of their tasty craft brews with some of the freshest and cleanest water in the country!

And in most recent Abita news, the brewery has launched three of their year-round brews in aluminum cans! Purple Haze, Amber and Jockamo IPA will be available in cans in New Jersey in the months ahead in addition to traditional glass bottles. Stay tuned for release dates, coming soon!
