Diverse Styles and Innovative Dishes Define the State’s Microbreweries
At the turn of the last century, Louisiana saw its fair share of beer brewing action. Prior to Prohibition, New Orleans was known as the brewing capital of the South, providing a home to about 30 breweries, including Dixie, JAX, Falstaff, and Standard. Unfortunately many of those breweries fell into bankruptcy during Prohibition and were forced to close their doors. By the 1970s, Dixie was one of the only ones left in operation.
