A New Dawn for LA Craft Beer

Located in the heart of Cajun Country in Broussard, Louisiana, our simple goal is to make awesome craft brewed beer. Our story begins around 2003 when our founder Andrew moved from Louisiana to Pittsburgh and discovered a thriving craft beer scene. Returning home a few years later, he recognized a lack of breweries in Louisiana and set out to create part of what is now a thriving craft brewing industry.

We’re Gonna Need a Bigger Brewery

Our first beer ever sold was Canebrake, named for the abounding sugarcane fields in the area, and it was a huge hit from the start. It didn’t help that Andrew was brewing in the "nano brewery," a tiny 50 gallon brewery, making just 20 kegs a week. Nevertheless, Parish was being distributed all over the Lafayette, La. region, and Canebrake was becoming more and more popular with a full range of beer drinkers—from light beer drinkers to 10th level beer nerds.

We remain known in Louisiana for Canebrake, but the rest of the world knows us for Ghost in the Machine and our juice bomb IPAs and other innovations. In 2012, we completed construction on our new brewery on Jared Dr. and have been growing ever since. Today, we are one of the largest breweries in the region and distribute our beer throughout the south.

Into the Future

We have 10 year-round beers: Canebrake, Ghost in the Machine, Envie, South Coast, Parish Pilsner, Dr. Juice, Rêve Coffee Stout, and our SIPS Sours. When we have time and capacity, we brew other beers too, like our seasonal Berliners, high gravity double and triple IPAs, and barrel aged strong ales. Our philosophy is to be a strong, profitable business while making intensely flavored, modern beer of the highest quality. We also only believe in brewing products that people want to drink (crazy concept, we know).

The Family

We have 30 bright, hard-working employees who come to work every day driven to make beers that get people excited and that our community is proud to call their own. Our team is made up mostly of people who have never worked in other breweries before, and we are proud of that. We don’t believe in boundaries and limitations on techniques or ingredients. We innovate in the industry by doing things our own way, and we make awesome beer as a result.

If you’ve ever purchased one of our beers, we’d like to say thank you for the support and for allowing us to continue making the best product on earth.
