Updated list of Louisiana breweries

Updated list of Louisiana breweries

This is a list that I kept on my previous blog. It’s still an important resource, so I’ve transferred the info over here. Please comment or drop me a note if you have any new info – my ear is not as close to the ground to all the openings and closings as it used to be, so I’m happy to have help.

This is the down and dirty, if you just need a verified list of brewery names in Louisiana, list.
