Raspberries aren’t everyone’s fruit of choice and sometimes they just won’t deliver that sweet fruit hit that you’re looking for. Abita knows this, and that’s why, as well as brewing Purple Haze, they made their own strawberry lager. Adding the juice if freshly squeezed and pulped Louisianan strawberry to their lager after filtration, imbues it a natural sugary sweetness, that also adds a little extra color to this incredibly refreshing beer. It’s unlike any other beer you’ll drink, and it’ll help you make the leap from the world of hard seltzer into beer with a couple of sips. And once you’ve tasted it, you’ll never look back.
