Make plans now to be at the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas on Friday, September 14 for Scales & Ales presented by Louisiana Seafood Promotion & Marketing Board to benefit the Aquarium's education programs and conservation efforts.

Scales & Ales patrons can enjoy Abita beers, including Amber and Purple Haze, along with specialty offerings such as Vanilla Doubledog, Pecan Harvest Ale and Barley Wine.

The party's extensive selection of beers are perfect for pairing with dishes from New Orleans favorite eateries including Galatoire's Restaurant, Antoine's Restaurant, Red Fish Grill, RioMar, Dish on Hayne, The Praline Connection, Huck Finn's Café, Acme Oyster House, Corky's Bar-B-Q, and Camellia Grill. With a focus on local ales and food, several of the dishes at Scales & Ales will be prepared with fresh Louisiana seafood.
