Get your king cake and beads ready, because it’s time for a Mardi Gras edition of Brews in Bloom! Allow your tastebuds to take a trip down to NOLA today with Abita’s “Mardi Gras Bock”. Abita is well known for their Amber lager, which takes residency at plenty of your favorite bars. However, if you tap into the potential of this brewing company, you’ll be amazed at what you find.
Today, Jayson and Matt Leff of Rhizome Productions discuss the “Mardi Gras Bock”. Brewed in the style of a traditional German Maibock beer, the “Mardi Gras Bock” is your perfect Fat Tuesday drink. It’s available in a six pack of bottles at your local grocery or liquor store, coming in at 6.5% ABV. Your classic Fat Tuesday out on the town in NOLA consists of drinking throughout the day, and this light and delicious beer makes that easier and more enjoyable than ever. Celebrate the holiday with some traditional New Orleans cuisine paired with this light and easy to drink beer!
