Abita Strawberry Harvest Lager

Ahhh, what's better than a refreshing brew on a hot summer's night? Could it be a bottle of OPB (other people's beer) of a type you've never heard of or tasted before? I think so! Some friends from southern Mississippi dropped by last night for a visit. Because they are great people, they came stocked with a new beer drink for us to try...Abita Strawberry Harvest Lager from a brewery in Abita Springs, Louisiana, which is 'down in their neck of the woods'. I immediately went crazy over it. Hold on, I think there is one in an ice chest in the garage I can enjoy while I write...oh yeah, here we go...OK, I know what you're thinking, this is probably one of those 'sweet' beers. I hate sweet beer. And sweetness this beer does not have. It does have strawberry flavor, light and crisp. Not strawberry flavor like the lipgloss we used in the second grade that made your lips tingle. No, this strawberry is subtle and light. So, ladies and gentlemen, I proclaim this beer a non-girlie drink, a beer to be enjoyed by country peoples and metros alike. Pop a top and enjoy!


  1. I LOVE Abita and had the Strawberry Harvest earlier in the summer and loved it too. I also thought it was the perfect amount of sweetness.

  2. I found your blog through someone else's and liked your recipes. I live about 1/2 hour from Abita and I have to say that I love the Stawberry does my manly man husband. You're so right it's just enough of the taste but very light for summer!
