New Orleans International Beer Fest follow up
OK, so the New Orleans International Beer Festival is this Saturday, March 9, from 2-6pm. Here's a few updates from Louisiana breweries as to what they'll be providing (folks that I didn't include in my last post.)
Covington: Will be bringing a cask for the cask garden!
Abita is bringing all their standards, including Abbey Ale, Spring IPA, Oyster Stout, and Strawberry Harvest Lager. They are contributing 2 casks to the cask garden: a cask conditioned version of Vanilla Double Dog and ZSB – Zach's Special Bitter.
Bayou Teche (got this from the New Orleans International Beer Festival website): LA31 Biere Noire, LA31 Biere Pale, LA31 Boucanee, LA31 Passionee, ACADIE, and their new seasonal, Saison D'Escrevisses.
For more info on what beers will be available at the Festival, visit the Breweries page on the Festival's website. You can still buy tickets here. I'm pretty sure that Gambit and the Beer Buddha are giving tickets away, too. (NOTE, deadlines for the giveaways may have already passed, I don't know.)
As I noted in the comment section in my previous post, I am gaining free access to the Festival in exchange for promoting it. I want to be transparent. However, if I didn't think that it was a worthy event to attend, I wouldn't have participated in the arrangement. I think it's an important part of expanding beer culture in Louisiana and New Orleans, and I hope to see many craft beer enthusiasts there!
