Louisiana-based Abita Brewery has introduced two “big” beers in big, 22oz bottles. The 8% ABV brews are Andygator, a Helles Dopplebock previously only available in draught, and the new Abbey Ale.

Abita Andygator
Andygator is a creature of the swamp, 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 alcohol strength of 8% by volume, it is a Helles Dopplebock. Andygator has been enjoyed as a draft brew and now enthusiastic Abita Andygator fans welcome its distribution in the new Big Bottles.

Abita Abbey Ale
Abbey Ale is a new Abita brew that honors the ancient tradition of monks who perfected the art of brewing beer to support the monastery and the brothers with their form of “liquid bread”. Abita offers up their support and thanks them with a 25-cent donation to St. Joseph’s Abbey in Covington, Louisiana with every bottle of this heavenly brew. The Abita Brewing Company previously raised $550,000 for hurricane storm relief with their Restoration Pale Ale after back-to-back storms devastated Louisiana.
