Rally Cap Brewing Company

In a converted warehouse on the outskirts of Baton Rouge, you’ll find a hidden gem of Louisiana’s craft beer scene: Rally Cap Brewing Company.

The business opened in late 2019 to widespread fanfare, due in no small part to its immaculate taproom and 16 beers. The design and overall vibe of Rally Cap was the brainchild of head brewer and owner Kevin Whalen. The avowed baseball superfan combined his passion with sports with his passion for beer, and his business has been thriving thanks to a clientele with those same interests. The taproom features no fewer than 10 widescreen TVs — a definite plus for fans of Louisiana State University’s football team (and 2019 National Champions) — and you can bet on crowds showing up for the Superbowl and World Series games alike.

Even some of Rally Cap’s beers have sports-themed names, with an obvious emphasis on baseball. Check out the Juuust a Bit Outside pale ale, the Innings Eater wheat beer and First Pitch pale ale. Other creative (and creatively named) beers include the Failed T-Shirt Company stout, Bang the Trash Can Slowly IPA and the Rainbow is My Favorite Color IPA.

Whether it’s game day or any other day, you’ll be a fan of Rally Cap from the first pint.
