Dixie Beer Brewery was a New Orleans staple from 1907 until Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005. After the storm and resulting flood, the brewery was closed and forced to move brewing out of state. It’s a story locals know all too well.
But just like Hubig’s Pies and other local NOLA brands we love, Dixie is back & brewing beer once again, this time in New Orleans East which is a big win for our real estate market.
New Orleans Saints Owner Gayle Benson Helps Bring Dixie Beer Back to NOLA
It goes without saying that New Orleans Saints owner Gayle Benson loves everything about the Crescent City. That’s why she started working in 2017 to bring Dixie Beer back to our city.
The big day came on January 25th, 2020 when the new brewery opened its doors to the public. In addition to having the capacity to brew 100,000 barrels every year, the brewery serves as a tourist attraction offering a bar, a cafe, an outdoor space, a museum, and games for visitors to play. Its return to New Orleans also added 40 new jobs to our city’s economy.
Dixie Beer’s Return to New Orleans is Part of a Local Comeback
We all know how devastating Katrina was to our beloved city. Driving around New Orleans, you can still see evidence of the flooding in some areas and neighborhoods. And while the housing market still hasn’t fully recovered, the people of New Orleans are resilient, and we love this city!
Every time a business opens (or re-opens) in this city, it signals more than just an investment of money. It’s an investment of trust. Of faith.
The Dixie Beer Brewery opening in New Orleans East is a great sign of faith & hope that the area will continue to recover. And, it’s a great sign for the local real estate market.
