Andygator is delicious on its own but also pairs nicely with sharp cheeses like Emmental and Gruyere and spicy Thai and Korean food. Bon Appetit!

Andygator Doppelbock
A creature of the swamp, Andygator is a unique, high-gravity brew made with pale malt, German lager yeast, and German Perle hops. Unlike other high-gravity brews, Andygator® is fermented to a dry finish with a slightly sweet flavor and subtle fruit aroma. Reaching an alcohol strength of 8% by volume, it is a Helles Doppelbock. 8.0% abv
Now available in 6-packs!


Christmas Ale
Each year at the Abita Brewery we craft a special dark ale for the holiday season. The recipe changes each year so that Abita Christmas Ale is always the perfect gift. Its spicy character is excellent with traditional holiday foods such as gingerbread or spiced nuts. Try some blue cheese or a creamy Camembert with a Christmas Ale.
