Top 10 Sipping Beers
Is it a cocktail as a beer? Or beer as a cocktail? Either way, this Louisiana-made brew is made for sipping.
Inspired by the classic Old Fashioned cocktail, this unique creation from Abita Brewing Company is brewed with malted barley and rye, then aged four months in bourbon barrels that have previously aged small-batch whiskey. After aging, the same ingredients you would find in the cocktail are added to the mix — fresh orange peel, maraschino cherries and aromatic bitters. Just as you would sip a cocktail to appreciate its savory notes, this brew at 9.25% ABV is definitely one to enjoy slowly.
