The Microbrewery Post

The old Jackson Brewery in New Orleans has been converted into a collection of tourist shops and offices. There is a Crescent City Brewery pub just over the road, but I haven’t had a chance to try it. I have, however, been drinking a raspberry wheat beer from Abita, who are Louisiana-based. It is very good. And what is more it is called Purple Haze.

I mean, how can you not love a beer called Purple Haze?

According to the web site, you can buy it at Wine Warehouse in Richmond, as well as many non-Bay Area locations. The full list of brews is here.

  1. I’ve found Abita Purple Haze at Andronico’s supermarket in Palo Alto. This was particularly important as the project I was working on (before I got laid off) was code-named “Purple Haze”. The first place I had Purple Haze was Cooter Brown’s in New Orleans, just at the place where the St Charles Ave streetcar turns right to go up Carrollton.

  2. Right, we went out that way on our ride-the-rails trip. I think I remember it. Lots of places in the Quarter have “proudly serving Abita” signs in the window.
