Coming straight from the south, Abita Turbodog graced Mr. Dave’s fridge the other night and he was kind enough to share it with me. This Louisiana brew comes from Abita Brewing Company, who has been around since 1986. They have some good info on their site and I was pleased to see that they use Pacific Northwest hops. Thanks Abita!
As far as the beer goes, it is a good one. It is a dark brown ale but I swear it is more like a dark lager in taste and texture. Either way, though, it is a tasty little beer with an earthy/dusty nose, a clean and light body, and a dark roasted finish that sticks around just long enough. Overall this and the sound of some of the other beers on their site make me very anxious to try more from them.
