Craft Brewing From Cajun Country

Got a minor revelation tonight: There's more to Louisiana craft brewing than Abita. (Not that there's anything wrong with Abita.) A friend recently brought me some LA 31 Bière Pâle from Bayou Teche Brewing. I'd never heard of it, but was impressed. Pretty sure you can't get it here in Austin, so I guess you'll have to go hunt it down in Cajun Country. And you know what, I'm long overdue for a trip back there. Been more than a decade since I've been dancing in those Cajun and zydeco dancehalls.

Thanks for the review.
When I was in Lafayette for Festival International de Louisiane, I had this beer and really enjoyed it.

I recommend visiting Lafayette the weekend of Oct. 8-10 for Festival Acadiens. Good times.

Troy, yes, I've often considered Festival Acadiens. My first visit to Louisiana as an adult was to the Zydeco Festival in Plaisance.
