Located in the heart of Cajun country in Lafayette, Louisiana, Cajun Brewing is proud to be the first brewery in a dynamic city known for incredible food and unmatched hospitality. At Cajun Brewing, we’re dedicated to showing the world that Cajuns are not only great cooks, but also darn good brewers.
Cajun Brewing was founded by owner Zeke Bossley, a talented home brew specialist whose love of beer led him down the path to the opening of his own microbrewery. The journey began when Zeke and his wife took a tour of a microbrewery in Vancouver, Canada in 1999. Zeke instantly became fascinated with brewing and immediately began to research how to make beer at home.
He read numerous books, began building his own equipment and eventually joined a Lafayette home brewing club called the Dead Yeast Society. After many years tinkering with home brewing systems and recipes, taste-testing numerous beers of all kinds, and honing their skills, Zeke and his colleagues realized their brews were so good they should share them with everyone, and the idea for Cajun Brewing was born.
After several years of planning and construction, Cajun Brewing opened for business in October 2015. Our initial line of products includes three beer varieties: Cajun WIT, Ragin’ Red Ale, and Brown Ale. The beer is brewed in small batches for maximum freshness and flavor. Our brewery also features a full-size laboratory that allows for exceptional quality control.
Located at 206 Rayburn Street near the Bertrand and Congress intersection and just a few blocks from the Cajundome, our brewery will eventually feature a Tap Room where customers can enjoy our beers with friends, sample test batches and get a taste of new beers we’re developing.
