BAYOU TECHE BIERE

Returning to America after a six year deployment in West Germany, our brewmaster dreamed of creating a beer that would pair with the Cajun cuisine he grew up eating. Living in Europe, he had learned to appreciate the regional foods and beers of many countries, and how they had evolved to complement each other. Taking up brewing beer at home, he taught himself to make several styles of these beers, fine-tuning recipes until he was satisfied that they complimented Cajun and Creole food. After returning to Arnaudville, he taught his brothers and collaborating they brewed commemorative batches of beer for their family’s holiday meals.

Bayou Teche Brewing was founded on this simple dream – to craft beers that compliment the cuisine and lifestyle of Cajuns and Creoles. With that mission, the Knott brothers decided on St. Patrick’s Day in 2009 to convert a discarded rail road car into a farmhouse brewery.

COVINGTON BREWHOUSE

Located in the heart of the beautiful southeast Louisiana town that is its namesake, Covington Brewhouse is dedicated to crafting quality beers, sending our local brand of joie de vivre (joy of life) to the world, one bottle at a time.

Covington Brewhouse beers herald a new chapter in the rebirth of a colorful southeast Louisiana brewing tradition started over 150 years ago when 19th century German immigrants developed New Orleans into the brewing capital of the Gulf South. Our Brewhouse, located on the beautiful north shore of Lake Pontchartrain, carries on that proud “local” brewing tradition as a contributor to the present-day American craft beer renaissance. Our beers, which exemplify another of Louisiana’s unique “local flavors”, not only pair well with the amazing local cuisine, but stand on their own with distinctive taste and character.

It’s genuine Louisiana…pop a cap and laissez le bon temps versez!

LUCY’S RETIRED SURFERS BAR & RESTAURANT

The Food, Drink, and Sounds found on the fringe of civilization… The Original” Lucy’s Retired Surfers Bar and Restaurant since 1985. Lucy’s first opened its doors in 1985 on the corner of 84th and Columbus, (upper west side), New York City, far away from the reef break. Owner Bruce Rampick, a native Southern Californian, joined forces with long-board riders, Kim Rampick, and Bill Durkin, in opening New York’s first “surfer bar” and restaurant.

From Santa Barbara to Baja, this food is the food we were raised on, and grew to know as true Southern California “Surfer” Food. This is La Esparanza, Mom, Grandma, Tijuana St. vendors and the Baja Motel… after a hard day’s night rippin’ up the California Coast. Surfing, drag racing, or just rockin’ and rolling’ this is the fresh and satisfying food we would run to.

MICHELOB ULTRA

Michelob is a 5% abv pale lager developed by Adolphus Busch in 1896 as a “draught beer for connoisseurs”. It was named after Michelob Michelob, a Bohemian brewmaster from Saaz, in the region famous for its Saaz hops. In 1961, Anheuser-Busch produced a pasteurized version of Michelob which allowed legal shipment of the beer across state lines. Bottled beer began to be shipped soon after, and the brand was introduced in cans in 1966. Bottled Michelob was originally sold in a uniquely-shaped bottle named the teardrop bottle because it resembled a water droplet. The teardrop bottle was awarded a medal from the Institute of Design in 1962. Five years later the bottle was redesigned for efficiency in the production line, and later it was abandoned for a standard bottle. The teardrop bottle was used again from January 2007 to October 2008.

STELLA ARTOIS

The Anno 1366 on the Stella Artois logo refers to the origin of brewing in the city of Leuven. The city’s tax records dated 1366 mention the existence of a local brewpub called Den Hoorn, (‘Hoorn’ in Dutch meaning ‘Horn’ in English, as is represented in the logo on the beer label). The name Artois was coupled to the brewery in 1708, when new owner Sebastian Artois achieved the title of master brewer. The frame that surrounds the name Stella Artois on the label refers to the traditional style of window frame found in Flemish architecture.
