Support Your Local Brewery

Just wanted to let you know that I supported my local brewery today by buying a t-shirt from NOLA Brewing Company. For those of you who would like to get some tees from this new New Orleans brewery you can visit there website.

Peter Caddoo, their brewmaster, also showed me their tap handles they just got in and they look great. They look similar to the wrought iron fences we have here in town with the fleur de lis on top of them. I can't wait until these guys get rolling!! Right now they are just waiting on getting their brewing equipment which they purchased from Left Hand Brewing out of Colorado. I was told hopefully October they will start kegging for bars. Hopefully we'll see some party pigs or growlers available as well.

If you aren't from New Orleans and aren't sure about local breweries in your area but want to get involved you can always visit Beer Advocate which has a great database of breweries from around the world. If you love beer and haven't been to this site I warn you now that it is addictive! You can also head over to the Support Your Local Brewery website. These guys are "dedicated to supporting and protecting the legislative and regulatory interests of small, traditional and independent craft breweries". If you like your craft beer than you better make sure you get over there and sign up!!!
