From the Bayou to You

OK, Road Trips Foodies, it’s probably too late for you to plan to go on tomorrow’s guided tours, but don’t fret. If you’re driving near Covington, Louisiana, on any Saturday morning (except major holiday weekends), you can take a tour of Heiner Brau, 226 Lockwood Street, Covington, Louisiana, at 10, 10:45 or 11:30 a.m.

This microbrewery (not far from Covington Trailhead Park and Visitors Center) is a reminder of the many German breweries that once operated in the Greater New Orleans area — the “Brewing Capital of the South”.

They do several seasonal brews, including Festbier Oktoberfest — available through November, and Mardi Gras Festbier, a Bavarian-style lager on tap December through February. But, their year ’round stalwarts are Kölsch (a light, crisp, clean and fresh golden beer popular in Cologne), Maerzen (monks called it “liquid bread”), and Strawberry Ale (don’t ask; it’s a Louisiana regional favorite).
