Summertime in Louisiana. Snoballs. Watermelon. Beer. We are lucky to have so many locally owned and operated craft breweries around the state. If you are looking to try out some new suds, then check out the following from Thrillist, who claim that these are the ten beers you need to 'Try Before You Die'. These signature craft beers around the state should be a great reason for a road trip on a hot day this summer. What could be better than that?
