Stumbled upon a six pack of Dixie in a well-curated liquor store in Denver, far from its home in New Orleans (in spirit, at least). The Dixie Brewing Company, active since the beginning of the 20th Century, was brought to a halt in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The facilities flooded then looted, the brewery is still closed, though the brand operates with contracted breweries crafting its recipes. A cheap, light lager that is “slow brewed,” Dixie Beer outdoes many of its price-competitors with a distinctly sweet and malty flavor. Perfect with pizza (and some good pale ale in between bottles).
