Fans of Abita Brewing gathered Thursday, April 7th, at Downtown River Jam to try the new flagship offering from the brewery.  Big Easy Session IPA is brewed with lemon peels and dry hopped with Cascade, Amarillo, Centennial and Simcoe for a hoppy aroma of citrus, fruit and pine. Released in April, the brew will be available year-round.  Attendees sipped their beers while enjoying a show stopping performance by Josh Madden.  His tribute to Elton John included costumes, glasses, feather boas and a dead on impression of the legendary singer, songwriter.  Guests were able to enjoy all the happenings downtown within a few blocks of each other.  The Downtown Gallery Crawl, Downtown River Jam and local restaurants and bars made for a truly “hopping” night in Monroe!
