Fat Tuesday comes around in February each year. And, as a homebrewer, you may be in the mood for something other than a hurricane. If so, try making these clones of Louisiana-based beers from Abita and Dixie.

Despite names like Fat Spider Ale, Turkey Stout and Black Kitty Brown, only one BYO recipe has ever featured animals as an ingredient — Black Pearl Oyster Stout. We’ve been lucky enough to taste this beer, brewed by Joe Walton and Jim Michalk, and it’s delicious. The beer has a complex dark grain character and a slightly silky mouthfeel. There’s no strong oyster flavor, but you may detect a slight salty/briney character. For best results, use hard water with a moderate to high level of carbonates.
According to Abita's website, "Amber is a Munich style lager brewed with pale and caramel malts and German Perle hops. Abita Amber was the first beer offered by the brewery and continues to be our leading seller. Amber is Abita’s most versatile beer for pairing with food."
From Rockyard Brewing in Castle Rock, Colorado, according to their website, "Our Multi-Medal Winning Double Eagle Ale is an American-Style Filtered Wheat. Brewed with 30% wheat, this light bodied ale is bright golden in color with a crisp but smooth aftertaste. This beer is excellent for relaxing on a late summer evening, or dreaming of warmer weather."
