Craft beer is all the rage these days and the best place to get a Louisiana cold pint is in our own backyard.

In the last few years, we have seen craft beer become more and more popular. Breweries are more than just a place to grab a drink. You get a behind-the-scenes look at the place you brew is crafted and many offer delicious food that pairs well with their selection. Plus, breweries often times host/sponsor community events, sporting watch parties, and even yoga classes.

Our local breweries check all of those boxes and more.

That's why it's no surprise that one of our own brewing gems is the best in the entire state. "The Best Craft Brewery in Every State in America", a list put out by the travel site Thrillist, named Great Raft Brewing the best in The Boot. The site raved about Great Raft's ability to pair delicious beer with delectable local food.

It's a winner every single time!
