[UPDATE]  RRBC has broken ground on a major project that will change Shreveport's emerging craft beer scene. The expansion will include new styles of beer, a larger production capacity, and a destination taproom in downtown Shreveport.

The new headquarters will be at 1200 Marshall Street and will serve as both a brewery and an entertainment venue. The expansion will add a new four-vessel, 20-barrel brewing system, a bottling line and a tasting room that will be open to the public.

RRBC's future plans will also include food truck pads, live entertainment and special events. The facility was designed by local architecture firm and Cohab graduate company iARCHiTECTURE.
