        Full rundown:

        BEER

        Most beer at Jazz Fest comes in cans. Draft beer, however, can be found at two stands near the Gospel Tent and inside the Grandstand. Here's a breakdown of what brews you'll find at the Fest.

        Craft beer

        Draft booths near the Gospel Tent

        An out-of-state Fester could be forgiven for not realizing that Louisiana's craft beer scene is booming. Over the last few years, the number of breweries has climbed to seven. Five more are in the works. But at the Fair Grounds, you'll find only one local beer and only in one location: Abita Amber near the Gospel Tent. This is the second year the state's largest and oldest brewery has been at Jazz Fest.

        Imports on draft

        Grandstand and draft booths near the Gospel Tent

        Pilsner Urquell is again the only import at Jazz Fest. The classic from the Czech Republic will quench a thirst after a day of dancing in the sun. The draft booth near the Gospel Tent will also pour Batch 19, Coors' craft-style lager said to use a pre-Prohibition recipe.

        Macro "craft" in cans

        All infield beer booths

        As in years past, cans of Blue Moon, Coors' take on a Belgium wheat ale, will be sold around the Fair Grounds. This year, Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy and a limited supply of Redd's Apple Ale have been added to the mix.

        Macro brews in cans

        All infield beer tents beer booths and mobile vendors

        The beer booths around the infield have 12-ounce cans of Miller Lite, Coors Light and Coors Banquet. The mobile vendors walking the crowds sell larger, 16-ounce cans of Miller Lite and Coors.

        Macro brews on draft

        Booths near the Gospel Tent and in the Grandstand

        If you prefer draft to cans, the draft booths near the Gospel Tent also have the ubiquitous Miller Lite. In the Grandstand, there's Miller Lite on draft and also the only source of Budweiser at the Fair Grounds.

        OTHER ALCOHOLIC DRINKS

        Wine

        Seven locations have Sutter Home pinot grigio and merlot along with cans of Sofia sparkling wines.

        Daiquiris

        Frozen daiquiri stands are back this year throughout the infield.

        NON-ALCOHOLIC DRINKS

        Water, soda and energy drinks

        Around the Fair Grounds and the Grandstand

        Beer booths have soda and water. Monster Energy drinks are also available. Fountain drinks with ice are sold in the Grandstand.

        Café au Lait (hot, iced or frozen) and Black Coffee (hot and iced)

        Rosemint Herbal Iced Tea, Regular Iced Tea, Ambrosia (Berry Black) Iced Tea

        by Sunshine Concessions

        Food Area I, Food Area II and Heritage Square

        The Berry Black tea is a new addition to Jazz Fest. Look for Susan Langenhennig's story on how the flavor was created.

        Strawberry Lemonade

        by Café Reconcile

        Congo Square and around the grounds

            Correct. Nola.com's error, not mine.

              It doesnt taste much like beer.
