Also, look for Abita's new select series, the Strawator starting next week. Or this weekend at WYES! Next week in town it will be at a handful of places... Chimes East at 4:30 on Wednesday (the 26th) then Pelican House at 6:00 the same day. Then on Friday the 28th The Bulldog will have it from 6-7 and Red Zeppelin from 7-8. Plenty of chances to try this new one, which seems like a combination of Strawberry Harvest and Andygator. They describe it as:
"Strawator is a take on our most popular Harvest Series beer, Strawberry Harvest Lager. It is a strong golden lager made with malted barley and wheat. Despite being strong, it is still light in color. It is hopped with German Perle hops to give the beer a delicate hop flavor. After filtration, generous amounts of fresh Louisiana strawberry juice is added, giving the beer a pleasant sweet taste and aroma, as well as a nice golden color and slight cloudiness."It comes in at 8% abv, the same as Andygator. Worth trying? Sure. The last Select series brew, the Mayhawk, was one of Abita's best in recent memory so hopefully this one follows that trend.
