Founded in 1907, this historic New Orleans landmark housed one of the few remaining regional breweries in America. Although displaced after Hurricane Katrina, Dixie still captures the essence of its proud southern traditions—the beers of Dixie are characteristic of the gracious charm and the joy of living so inherent in the New Orleans way of life. More than a brewery, The Dixie Brewing Company and its beers are as much a part of Louisiana culture as Mardi Gras, Creole and Cajun cooking and New Orleans Jazz.
Uniquely formulated and brewed to meet the demand of a quality brew which could be generously consumed but still leave room for the spiced foods which are now synonymous with Creole and Cajun cooking. Dixie lager uses lightly roasted tow row barley malts, rice and Cascade hop; the result is this crisp and flavorful beer. A century of New Orleans brewing tradition lives today in every bottle of Dixie Lager.
Inspired by the great German dark lager beers, only the best of dark roasted barley malts were used to create this darkly rich and very malty flavor. With perfectly balanced Mt. Hood and Cascade hops, and slow, cold lagering, there is a touch of magical spirit, deep color and bewitching character to this unique and mysterious brew.
At only 92 calories and 3.1g of carbohydrates, this award winning beer, developed by the late, world-renowned Father of Light Beer, Dr. Joseph Owades, retains the taste and character of full bodied lagers—making this a truly unique light amber beer. It is the result of a challenge to produce a superior tasting, super-premium light beer.
