Abita springs on I-12 north of new Orleans has abita brewing company. Excellent brewpub, then the brewery is just down the street. Free unlimited beers for 2 hours at the brewery and a tour.
FWIW, the Abita tour is 1 hour, not 2. So pace yourself accordingly
Also, there is a Chimes located in Covington, which is about 5-10 minutes away from the Abita brewery. Not sure how it stacks up to the Baton Rouge one, but it's got a decent selection. Also, the Barley Oak in Mandeville has some good brews.
