Louisiana Coast: Brewing for You

When you visit us down along the gorgeous Louisiana Coast, you're going to be busy. When you are busy, you get thirsty. When you get thirsty, you get cranky and when you get cranky, you don't act right. When you don't act right, the Rougarou might just come out of the swamp for you. Don't let the Rougarou get you. Stop thirst in its tracks along the Louisiana Brewery Trail, featuring 11 distinct breweries throughout the state, several of which fall along our scenic and beautiful coastline.

From Abita Brewing Company (that's the 14th largest craft brewery in the US, thanks very much) and Covington Brewhouse in Covington to Chafunkta Brewing Company in Mandeville, the Louisiana Coast line is awash in suds and that's how we like it. This time of year, the Imperial Stouts, Seasonal Ales and Porters are flowing. We're looking forward to lifting a pint of Abita's Christmas Ale, Chafunkta's Old 504 American Porter and a Covington Bayou Bock. Lucklily for us, this weekend, we can do all of that delicious sipping in one place at the Bayou Beer Fest in Houma, brought to you by Mudbug Brewery, opening soon in Thibodaux. Join your fellow beer lovers at historic Southdown Plantation and Museum for a taste of 40 regional and national craft beers this Saturday, November 15, 2014, from 12 - 5. You'll get a first-hand taste of what makes Louisiana Coast's regional draft offerings so special while soaking in some Louisiana charm. Remember to drink responsibly, though! We suspect if you can say "Chafunkta" three times fast you're probably in good shape, but maybe designate a driver just to be on the safe side! Maybe some food will help! Click on the breweries above for info about food & beer pairings and enjoy like a grown-up. 

We will be sharing some more news of Louisiana's breweries and distilleries in the coming weeks. In fact, become a Coastal Cruiser from our homepage here at VisitLouisianaCoast.com and you could be amongst the winners of our next giveaway who will find themselves in possession of a pair of excellent Louisiana Brewery Trail pint glasses! Stay tuned for details and, in the meantime, pour, lift, sip, repeat! We've always got something brewing for you along the Coast!
