Opened: 1907

Annual Production: 300,000 bbl

Hurricane Katrina flooded Dixie with ten feet of water in 2005. Owners Joe and Kendra Bruno planned to reopen the brewery in time for its 100th anniversary in 2007. That didn't happen, and now their beers are brewed by Minhas Craft Brewery in Monroe WI. The original brewery site is being revived as a VA Hospital.
