Grim Reaper's Eulogy
I rather enjoyed Dixie's straight up lager this summer. It was a go-to favorite. This all malt brew is pretty fantastic as well. Done in the Munich Dunkel Lager style, the neck lable stated that it uses "old-world brewing methods".

Those methods might include some brewing friendships as well. Dixie suffered at the hands of Hurricane Katrina. With a little help from their friends at Joseph Huber Brewing in Wisconsin, they were able to make this beer. Meanwhile, the operations to restore the Louisiana operations continue as the century old Dixie continues to turn out beer for the masses.

A little voodoo and some good friends can go a long way.


  1. I had BVL 16 years ago and like it a lot. I live in Ohio and am looking to get some more of this. How or where can I obtain a six pack or more?

  2. I'd start by checking with your local OH beer distributors to see which might carry the Dixie lineup. Cheers!
