Bayou Teche Brewing was founded on this simple dream – to craft beers that compliment the cuisine and lifestyle of Cajuns and Creoles. With that mission, the Knott brothers decided on St. Patrick’s Day in 2009 to convert a discarded rail road car into a farmhouse brewery.
Years ago, when the French-speaking, agrarian residents of Acadiana needed to put up a barn or similar building they would throw a coup de main. Inviting friends and relatives over to help with the arduous task, everyone’s shared labor would be repaid with a large communal meal. Thanks to well-fed (and sometimes inebriated) volunteers and as a nod to the Cajun aesthetic and heritage, the tiny hand built brewery now resembles a traditional Acadian style home – complete with a tasting porch.
Today, in that converted old rail car near the banks of the Bayou Teche, innovative ales are being crafted true to the brewers’ original intent – beers that compliment the unique foods and lifestyles of South Louisiana.)
At Blue Moon Brewing Company, everything we do stems from our artistic approach to brewing beer. Our philosophy is simple. We take great, classic styles and make them even better by adding inviting twists.
It’s been like that since we added our first twist back in 1995. And that’s why we say our beer – and everything we do – is Artfully Crafted.
|Diamond Bear Brewing is Little Rock’s first production brewery in over 15 years. Diamond Bear started brewing on September 21, 2000, and started distribution on October 17, 2000 with the Flying Saucer (Downtown River Market District) being the first establishment to carry our product. We have since been expanding our market steadily. Our styles of beer are produced in the old time honored traditional methods of european brewers, using only two-row malted barley ,hops, yeast and great Arkansas water. Being brewed locally gives the beer a great advantage in “freshness” while still capturing some of the worlds most famous styles of beer without the use of adjuncts or preservatives!|

Shock Top is a traditional Belgian-Style wheat ale. We first
introduced ourselves to the world in 2006 as a seasonal brew under the name
Spring Heat Spiced Wheat. After winning a gold medal in 2006 and bronze
medal in 2007 in the Belgian White category at the North American Beer
Awards, we decided that it was only right to bring it to the people
year-round. And since calling it Spring Heat didn¹t seem to make a whole lot
of sense in the middle of November (or July, for that matter), we changed
our name to Shock Top.
We could spend all day talking your ear off about our brewing process, our ingredients, our passion, our vision, and our (albeit brief) heritage, but we know you don¹t have all day, so we kept it as brief as we could. Take a look around to learn a little more about us. But more importantly, be sure to pick up some Shock Top and try it for yourself, because if you enjoy drinking our beer even half as much as we enjoy brewing it, then you¹re in for a real treat.
