The Erstwhile Jackson Brewery: a Postcard from New Orleans

Posted by jtebeau on June 8, 2011

New Orleans’ French Quarter does indeed imply beer, beer, and might I add, more beer. And years back, it was well-stocked with fresh suds from the Jackson Brewery, kitty-corner from Jackson Square on Decatur Street. According to Wikipedia:

“Constructed in 1891, it originally was the central brewery for Jax Beer, and in the 1960s was the 10th-largest brewery in the country. But in the 1970s, the company owning the brewery went bankrupt, and in the 1980s the building was purchased and turned into space for shops and restaurants.”

Aw, nuts. Another casualty of modernity. Whattaya gonna do? I drew the lovable old hulk.
