BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Hoist a mug in celebration of Louisiana's brews.

That's the latest tourist attraction that Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne is celebrating, introducing the Louisiana Craft Brewery Trail to tout locally-made beers.

The trail has seven breweries, all accessible from Interstates 10 and 12: Abita Brewing Company, Bayou Teche Brewing, Chafunkta Brewing Company, Covington Brewhouse, NOLA Brewing Company, Parish Brewing Company and Tin Roof Brewing Company.

Dardenne introduced the craft beer trail at an event Monday that included representatives from the seven breweries and samples of their Louisiana-made beers.

Brewery leaders say the trail will give them increased attention — and hopefully, sales.
