ABOUT THE BREWER
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.
