Faubourg Brewing Co.
Faubourg Brewing Co. (formerly known as Dixie Brewing Co.) is New Orleans in a bottle, with a rich history that dates to its founding in 1907.
For decades, the company was synonymous with the city, surviving Prohibition (when the company’s name was temporarily changed to Dixie Beverage Company), and distributing from its production facility in New Orleans’ Mid-City neighborhood until 2005.
Visitors can tour Faubourg’s beer museum, filled with photos, artifacts and memorabilia from the company’s past. The taproom serves Faubourg’s flagship lager, light beer and Blackened Voodoo lager, as well as experimental, smaller batch beers you won’t find anywhere other than the brewery. You can also sign up for one of Faubourg’s guided 45-minute tours, where you’ll learn all about the brewing process and the history of one of New Orleans’ proudest homegrown brands.
