A last minute change in our schedule delivered a nice surprise. We decided the distance from Gulfport, MS to Livingston was too far to go in one day. So we looked to split it up. One of our best sources for just such trip extensions is Harvest Hosts. We checked our membership map for Louisiana and found a wonderful brewery right in our path! What Luck!!! And so this intermittent stop brings our mileage today to a reasonable 184! As it turns out, this brewery is 10 years old and has a wonderful All American Success story attached to it. We arrived about 2 in the afternoon and with the instruction to park anywhere in the lot, we did. We, of course, saved space for anyone else coming after us tonight. When we’re all set up we went to the tap room for a taste of their finest. We weren’t disappointed except, that the pizza bar isn’t open during the week! As we’re writing this article, we were visited by the father of the men who own and run the establishment. He was charming and related the interesting success story. The name sake for the brewery is Bayou Teche a true place about 15 miles north of here. Teche in the local Native American language means snake. The bayou runs its course to the Gulf of Mexico.
With this stop, we’re finally ale to add another state, Louisiana to our map! So, we clicked our bottles and shouted Prost!
