Spigots Brew Pub (622 Barrow St., Houma, 985-333-3103; www.spigotsbrewpub.com) became Louisiana's 29th brewery when it opened in downtown Houma in February. Co-founders Jacob Aucoin and Knickolas Turner began construction of their 10,000-square-foot brewpub last year and sponsored the 2016 Bayou Beer Festival in November. Its grand opening celebration was March 7.
Turner is the brewmaster and is producing a wide variety of beers, including oatmeal porter, helles bock and pale ale.
The brew pub has a full restaurant menu. Its regular hours of operation will be 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, and it will open for lunch 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday.
• At Wayward Owl Brewing (3940 Thalia St., 504-827-1646; www.waywardowlbrewing.com), brewer Justin Boswell added a fifth beer to the brewery's core lineup, The Grind, a coffee brown ale brewed in collaboration with District Donuts.Sliders.Brew. Food service at the brewery now includes crawfish boils courtesy of Clesi's Restaurant & Catering every Sunday and steak and shrimp from Brugger's Barbecue on Friday nights.
• Demand for Parish Brewing Company's (229 Jared Drive, Broussard, 337-330-8601; www.parishbeer.com) new seasonal beer, Strawberry Canebrake, has prompted the brewery to focus only on core beers in March, Parish CEO Andrew Godley says. The brewery's popular hoppy/"juicy" beers will be available in limited batches in April.
"We aren't stopping the juice," Godley says. "We just have to pump the brakes a little bit this month so that we can catch up with the Canebrake and Envie products."
