Abita Beer Lights Up for Christmas

ABITA SPRINGS, La (press release) – Abita Brewing Company, is kicking the holiday season off with a larger than life Keg Tree in their Brewery Beer Garden. This nine-level tree is constructed of 212 stainless steel, half-barrel kegs, 260’ of stainless cable, trimmed with over 2,500 LED lights, and topped with three Abita fleur-de-lis neons.

“We wanted to celebrate the holidays bigger this year and a team member brought this idea up at lunch,” said David Blossman, president and CEO of Abita Brewing Company. “We worked together with our team to layer the kegs and hang the lights. Within a few weeks our vision came to life and the result was a 20’ keg tree in our beer garden.”

The official tree lighting ceremony will be this Friday, Dec. 1, at 6 p.m. during their December Food Truck Round Up. There will be carolers, an appearance by the Mande Milkshakers and plenty of beer on tap!
