A Refreshing Blend
of Tradition and Innovation

Dixie Leaf@2x

Our brewery is where the magic happens. From our beginnings on Tulane Avenue to our future home in New Orleans East, Dixie Beer continues to honor its local heritage while investing in cutting-edge technology. Our commitment to delivering products of the highest quality and taste is our steadfast mission.

A Perfected Process

Dixie Leaf@2x

Dixie’s unique brewing process is designed to lift its ingredients to their full potential. Fermented at a warmer temperature than other lagers, Dixie develops a unique and complex flavor profile along with pleasant fruity notes.

True to our Roots But New in Many Ways.

Crisp, Clean, Refreshing

Dixie uses rice, as opposed to corn syrup, as an adjunct (supplement to aid the fermentation process) which lightens the beer and produces a crisp, clean flavor profile.

Malt & Hops

At Dixie, the quality of our ingredients is key. We proudly source our grains from some of the best farms across the United States to produce a perfect batch every time.

Pairings

Dixie is made with New Orleans in mind. It pairs perfectly with our city’s signature Cajun and Creole dishes, spicy boiled seafood, gumbos and oysters.

As important as the ingredients are to the final product, the brewing process can either make or break it.
Our team is bound by our commitment to maintaining a pristine brewing environment to ensure a perfect product every time.

State-of-the-Art Technology

Dixie Leaf@2x

Dixie Beer combines technology and tradition to retain that aromatic quality while meeting the most modern brewing standards. After the beer is brewed through the step mash process, it’s left to lager for 28 days. During and after the lagering process, Dixie’s cutting edge lab analyzes samples, checking for uniform color, alcohol content and product consistency. Once it passes lab approval, it’s time for the most stringent test of all – the taste test.
