In order to celebrate Mardi Gras, the High Dive is hosting a Fat Tuesday event with Louisiana’s own Abita Brewing Company! We will have some tasty Abita brews, a Fat Tuesday inspired food special, Abita giveaways/glassware, and plenty of Mardi Gras fun – High Dive style!
Abita Beer List:
Purple Haze – Lager brewed with real raspberries added after filtration. It is brewed with pilsner and wheat malts and Vanguard hops. The berries add a fruity aroma, tartly sweet taste and a subtle purple color and haze…you may see fruit pulp in the beer. (4.2% ABV)
Restoration Pale Ale – Brewed with pale, caramel and carapils malts. It is liberally hopped and dry hopped with Cascade hops. This golden ale has a rich body, mild bitterness, and a snappy citrus hop flavor and aroma. With your help Restoration raised over $550,000 for hurricane relief. (5.2% ABV)
Turbodog – Dark brown ale brewed with pale, caramel, and chocolate malts and Willamette hops. This combination gives Turbodog its rich body and color and a sweet chocolate, toffee-like flavor. Turbodog began as a specialty ale, but has gained a huge, loyal following and has become one of our flagship brews. (5.6% ABV)
Abita S.O.S. (Save Our Shore) — A charitable pilsner is a message in a bottle…a distress signal for the troubled waters of our Gulf Coast. For every bottle sold Abita donates 75¢ to the rescue and restoration of the environment, industry and individuals fighting to survive the disastrous gulf oil spill. This unfiltered Weizen Pils is made with pilsner and wheat malts. It is hopped and dry hopped with Sterling and German Perle hops. It has a brilliant gold color, a sweet malt flavor, and a pleasant bitterness and aroma. (7% ABV)
Fat Tuesday Food Special:
Deep fried Catfish served with hush puppies, a smoked sausage jambalaya, and a jalapeño-cheddar biscuit ($11.50).
Food special will be served from noon until we run out!!!
