Follow The ‘Louisiana Brewery Trail’

Craft beers are gaining popularity all over the country, and Louisiana is no exception. Louisiana’s tourism industry is largely fueled by the mystique of New Orleans. Ben Berthelot, head of the Lafayette Convention and Visitors Commission is striving to draw those visitors to Acadiana.
“We needed something unique. So we started driving them to some spots on the boudin trail and stopped by one of our breweries.It seemed a natural fit. And they like it.”
- Ben Berthelot, President LCVC

Busloads of European tourists have travelled to Bayou Teche Brewing in Arnaudville and Abita Brewing Co. in Abita Springs, to tour the breweries, and sample the product.

There’s a “boudin trail” that highlights Cajun pork and sausage stores, and Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne plans to unveil the “Louisiana Brewery Trail.”  It can be found at http://breweries.louisianatravel.com/.
It’s the kickoff of a weeklong celebration.
State Rep. James K. Armes III, (D-Leesville) says, “The craft brewing industry in Louisiana has grown from one in 2006 (Abita Brewing) to seven today.”
We’ve all heard of the “Cajun 7 course meal,” a six pack of beer & a pound of boudin!
