Dixie Brewery is a 100% smoke-free campus.

At one time, Dixie Brewery distributed to 22 states. After Hurricane Katrina, our original brewery in New Orleans was destroyed and forced to move to out of state contract brewing to survive. This severely diminished our ability to have widespread distribution. The new brewery in New Orleans East opened in January 2020, and we are working hard to get our distribution back to you, but it will take time.
We cannot legally ship beer.
We'd be happy to credit you. Please send an email to [email protected] explaining your situation and providing the code on the bottle or can.
While we are not able to sell or fill growlers for the time being, we sell 32 oz one-time use crowlers at the brewery.
We cannot sell kegs direct to consumers. Try asking your local grocery store if they will bring one in for you to purchase.
We recognize that our nation and community are currently engaged in critical conversations about racism and systemic social issues that have caused immeasurable pain and oppression of our black and brown communities. As New Orleans, and our country, continue to evolve we find it necessary to reflect on the role our brewery can play in making our home more united, strong and resilient for future generations.
We believe the original context for the Dixie Brewery name is firmly rooted in the French ‘Dix’ note and Dixieland Jazz which was just emerging at the turn of the 19th century. However, we choose to no longer debate that the word has unfortunately come to also have negative connotations that are indefensible and contrary to our core values. Beer is meant to bring people together, and if we are excluding, offending, or hurting anyone by using a specific word, we are simply not doing what we set out to do for our community.
Our goal is to announce a new name during October 2020.
Wonderful! Please submit all name suggestions here.
We plan to turn the beer museum into a New Orleans Beer Museum experience and pay homage to all the great early New Orleans brands and to tell the entire story. We have no plans to sell items in the beer museum.
We anticipate Dixie products being available for customers to purchase onsite and in our distributed markets through early Q1-2021.
Once we select a new name, we’ll need time to take care of trademark applications, design work, printing, fabrication and many more tasks that can take weeks, and oftentimes months, to accomplish. Our goal is to have a new brand hitting markets by Mardi Gras 2021.
