Buying Faubourg Beer

We currently have wholesale distribution in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and the Florida Panhandle. We’re working hard to expand distribution to other states! Use our Beer Finder to locate Faubourg Brewing Co. products at stores near you.

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. Since the new brewery in New Orleans East opened in January 2020, and we’ve been working hard to get our distribution back to you, but it will take time. Use our Beer Finder to locate Faubourg Brewing Co. products at stores near you.

At this time, we are not shipping our beers.

We sell 32-oz. one-time use Crowlers at the brewery taproom. At this time, we do not sell or fill growlers.

We cannot sell kegs directly to consumers. Try asking your local grocery store if they will bring one in for you to purchase.

Other Questions

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 found it necessary to reflect on the role our brewery can play in making our home more united, strong and resilient for future generations.

Some people have asked us about the word “Dixie” referring to the $10 “Dix” note. 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.
