Drinking with the Bayou Spirits
You never really know your neighbors.
My family discovered this truth after taking a vacation in our home state of Louisiana. We have traveled the United States and lived far beyond our own borders. It was that one trip to the south that made us realize there are still secrets lurking in the bayous.
Now we make adventures of it. We take weekend trips and vacations in our home state to explore its culture and discover its forgotten places. This weekend, we decided to check out Lake Charles, LA, and follow where the spirits led us.
Rum. I’m talking about rum here folks. The good ole fashioned southern spirits of liquor and beer.
The micro-distillery and micro-brewery markets are alive and thriving in the swampy south, so we met up in Lacassine outside of Lake Charles to see what they had to offer.
