In honor of American Craft Beer Week, I thought I would investigate the awesome places that brew locally right here in Louisiana. With the help of Thrilllist, here are the some of the Best Breweries in Louisiana. I personally think that Louisiana doesn't get enough credit for being innovative in this area, but we do have the best food on the planet, and now we have the suds to go along with that honor. These locations have been picked by experts in their field, but as always, it is not a complete list. Hope you get to visit some of these unique places, and their signature brews, in the near future!
