After a stint in Germany, the Brewmaster for Bayou Teche Brewing knew he wanted to create a beer that would compliment the Cajun cuisine of his youth. A self-taught brewer, he taught his brothers the craft and the group produced beer for the family’s holiday meals. But they didn’t stop there. They founded Bayou Teche Brewing to craft beers that compliment the cuisine and lifestyle of Cajuns and Creoles. With that mission in mind, the Knott brothers decided in 2009 to convert a discarded railroad car into a farmhouse brewery. Today, in that converted old rail car near the banks of the Bayou Teche, innovative ales are still being crafted true to the brewers’ original intent – beers that compliment the unique foods and lifestyles of south Louisiana.
