Last summer, I told you that Santa Fe Brewing was coming to Louisiana in early 2014. Well, it’s early 2014 and Santa Fe is going to debut their beers in Louisiana next week. New Orleans will get the first shipment, but word on the street is that Baton Rouge should be able to get a bit of that before Santa Fe officially sends the Capital City their full allocation.
According to Santa Fe Brewing President, Brian Lock, “We are only going to be distributing into the New Orleans area to begin with but have an agreement with all of the Southern Eagle distribution network to expand into all parts of Louisiana as the market grows.”
I’m excited to have their Java Stout available, and look forward to trying their other offerings like Happy Camper IPA, Black IPA, Saison 88 and more.
In the meantime, rollout events will take place next week in New Orleans. See the full schedule and press release below.
SANTA FE, New Mexico – Santa Fe Brewing Company is happy to announce its expansion of distribution into the New Orleans, Louisiana area.
New Orleans has long been a city that appreciates fine food and beverages so introducing the Santa Fe Brewing line of award winning products makes perfect sense. “We are excited to bring a little of the Southwest to the French Quarter”, said Brian Lock, president. “New Orleans has always been a hub for great food, music and beer and we are happy to be a part of LA Craft Beer distribution.”
