Tails and Ales: Ambers and lagers and stouts, oh my!

Tails and Ales, held this past Saturday at the New Orleans Fairgrounds Race Track, confirmed what we already knew: Abita knows how to throw a party! With beers from around the world and ostriches racing through the rain, it was an international celebration of libations with a uniquely Nola flair. With 75 beers for the tasting, Tails and Ales-goers proved that even though they might not be able to run as fast as the camels they watched, they could certainly drink like them.
