Abita Brewing Company,
Louisiana's oldest and largest craft brewery, has released a new IPA that will
be around for your enjoyment all year long. The Jockamo Juicy IPA, a "Double Dry
Hopped India Pale Ale" with strong hop flavors and aromas, is available at
retail locations. It will be available in six-packs or on draft and sold in
grocery stores, at retailers, and in restaurants in Louisiana and throughout
the distribution network across the country.
The Abita Brewing Company was founded in 1986 and remains
Louisiana's largest craft brewery. Housed in Abita Springs, the facility
produces over 125,000 barrels of beer and 13,500 barrels of soda every year.
The lagers and ales are brewed in small batches by hand by a select team of
brewers. The company features 13 year-round brews, with Jockamo Juicy being the
newest addition. Abita is just as famous for its beer as it is for its Cane
Sugar Root Beer. Abita uses only the finest, purest ingredients, with water
coming directly from Abita Springs and sugarcane grown in Louisiana.
The team at Abita Brewing Company is incredibly excited
about the new release of Jockamo Juicy. The original Jockamo was released in
2008, and David Blossman, the president and CEO of Abita Brewing Company, has
nothing but good things to say about this newer version. "This new juicy style
of Jockamo is an even bolder IPA, with intense hop flavors and aromas.
Featuring brighter, more tropical tones, this beer pours a vivacious gold color
with a distinguishing haze."
The brewmaster of Abita Brewing Company has also remarked,
"We used this as an opportunity to highlight a blend of these experimental
hops, in addition to Citra and Apollo hops, to give Jockamo its topical-forward
flavor and aroma."
