Fall Fest
Back in the Garden State for its second year, Fall Fest is Abita’s interpretation of a German Marzen-style Lager. Brewed with traditional German hops and malts, this seasonal brew is rich, full-bodied and smooth with an assertive malt character and a nice toasty finish. Delicious with bratwurst and grilled pork tenderloin! 5.8%abv
Available now in 6-packs and half kegs!

Pecan Harvest Ale
A taste of the sweet south brought to you in fermented liquid form! Brewed with locally harvested and perfectly toasted Louisiana pecans, this medium-bodied amber brown ale is great with light appetizers, nutty cheeses, grilled meats and nut-encrusted fish! 5% abv
Available now in 6-packs and half kegs!
