Heavy Spirits: Abita Strawberry Harvest Lager

Do not be fooled, beer snobs— this is no appletini….

Though I’m biased towards any Louisiana-based spirit, especially one in New Orleans, this is great: it tastes like beer made from strawberries, not beer flavored with strawberries (which is actually the case).

Late April, early May all the liquor stores/ Whole Foods in New Orleans start stocking this stuff. Yeah, partially I love it because it’s a sign of Summer… but mostly because it’s good beer, specifically good lager. Nicely balanced– roughly half beer, half ripe strawberries.

Yeah, you’ll probably get made fun of; it’s good enough to not give a shit.

Say you drink it for the Saints. Or the Bees.
