Abita Beer - MN or WI

kelldeen Jan 22, 2010 08:38 AM

Is there anywhere to get Abita Beer in either MN or WI? I used to be able to find it at a couple of stores in Minneapolis, but I think the distribution got cut. Any thoughts? Amber or Turbodog are my faves.

      I think you should check out some of the awesome beers from New Glarus instead of looking for Abita's mediocre offerings.

        Do note that I am a huge fan of New Glarus. However, I think it is hard to compare a beer made for the cuisine/climate of Louisiana with Southern Wisconsin. I tried Abita's Mardi Gras Bock during my last trip to Louisiana and it was better than mediocre.

        I know this is outside of where you're looking, but my local college town liquor store carries Abita [Ames, IA]. My guess is that it can be found or special-ordered by the case at a good liquor store in your area ...

          In MN you will find Abita at most Haskell's and Big Top locations. If your downtown Minneapolis check out Sorella.

          In WI you can find Abita at Woodmans and Festival Foods. Most local liquor stores will carry some of the Abita line.
