Abita Mardi Gras Bock
Mardi Gras has passed us by this year, but the local supermarket still had some of Abita’s springtime seasonal brew on hand. A helles bock, Abita’s Mardi Gras Bock is a great choice for Mardi Gras; 6.5% ABV in a light, smooth beer works well on the streets of New Orleans during Carnival. This has been my drink of choice during Mardi Gras; a cold six pack from the nearby convenience store will last an entire parade. This amber-colored lager tastes of sweet bread with some bitterness on the back end. Give it a try when you’re standing on St. Charles Ave. for Endymion.
