I’m a bit late on this one, but I mentioned it in passing last week. Parish Brewing has opened their new taproom as of a week ago. They issued a press release last Friday with the announcement.
Broussard, La – South Louisiana’s fastest growing craft brewery is celebrating the completion of its taproom expansion. Parish Brewing Co. is ushering in exciting changes including the new retail Taproom, moving public tours to Saturdays, and offering brewery-fresh beer to-go in refillable growlers. Parish is the first Louisiana brewery to sell beer directly to consumers in over 2 decades. “We are very excited that our new brewery taproom is open for business! It offers a truly high quality experience for visitors to our brewery,” says Parish’s founder and brewmaster, Andrew Godley.
Free tours will now be given on Saturdays starting at noon. Parish is also coordinating with several food trucks in the area to setup at the brewery taproom. The taproom lineup includes draft pints, specialty bottles, and 64oz refillable growlers to-go. Growlers are a green way for customers to purchase brewery fresh draft beer to-go. After the initial container purchase, the customer can continuously bring their growler back to the brewery to be refilled for a very low price. “It is the most economical and environmentally friendly way to get quality draft beer at home,” says Godley.
Parish Brewing Co. beers available in the taproom:
Canebrake – Louisiana Wheat Ale
Envie – American Pale Ale
Farmhouse IPA – Belgian Style Ale
Grand Reserve – Barleywine (available for a short period of time)

I’m excited to go check it out soon and see what other one-off beers are being served. The move to Saturday tours makes a lot of sense, as I know I have trouble getting over to Broussard on Friday afternoons. In fact, I had a discussion with a friend today about doing a trail run and taproom visit over that way very soon.
