Urban South Celebrates Mardi Gras With Three Special Themed ReleasesMarch 14, 2022 | Ruvani de Silva
As seasonal and event-focused beers grow in popularity, Mardi Gras beers are now becoming a trend around the country, tying in with local celebrations or referencing NOLA traditions. For New Orleans’ largest brewery by volume, Urban South, this is the time of year for curated innovation as they update their annual triple-release of brews to celebrate the city’s biggest party.
Brieux Carre Brewing Co. | Saw Bro Hazy IPAOctober 22, 2021 | Katie de la Rosa
Beneath a swinging wooden sign, quite literally around the corner from the famed Frenchmen Street and mere yards from the downriver border of the French Quarter, unassumingly sits one of the best craft breweries in New Orleans.
Since its inception in 2017, Brieux Carre Brewing — an impossibly perfect pun, a nod to the historic name for the French Quarter, the french term “Vieux Carre” meaning “old square” — has released some of the quirkiest named, highest quality beers in the burgeoning craft beer scene on the Gulf Coast.

The town of Lake Charles, LA was especially hard-hit, with at least 28 fatalities in the small city.

Almost a month has passed since Laura’s 150 miles-per-hour winds and 15-foot storm surge; yet, nearly 45,000 residents still do not have power. Between huge storms, historic wildfires, and the pandemic, many residents are worried that the world has forgotten about them.
