Urban South Brewery opened March 17 and released two beers: Charming Wit and Holy Roller, A brewery tasting room will open in April and help in the development of its third beer, Coop'd Up. Vice president Kyle Huling says the brewers envision Coop'd Up as an “urban farmhouse ale.” Since the farmhouse ale and saison category is quite broad in terms of malts, hops and yeasts used, Huling says they hope to use tasting room feedback to decide the best direction for Coop’d Up. 

Bayou Teche Brewing released an anniversary beer called Teche's Classic Gose and it is a collaboration with Zapp's Potato Chips. The beer features a special blend of Zapp’s seasonings in place of the salt used in a traditional gose. The official release is March 26 during the six-year anniversary party at the Arnaudville brewery. The beer will be served with boiled crawfish from Hawk’s Restaurant in Rayne.

Great Raft Brewing released Oceans Between Us, the first in a series of beers brewed with 100 percent Brettanomyces and dry-hopped with different kinds of hops. This batch showcases the citrus and tropical notes of Citra hops.

Oceans Between Us also is Great Raft’s first release in its new Belgian-style beer program, which focuses on mixed fermentation and experimentation with wild yeasts such as Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus, using barrels, stainless steel tanks and a 30-barrel oak foeder, a large wooden fermentation vessel.

In early April, the brewery will release Come What Mayhaw, the second beer in the Belgian program. Come What Mayhaw is a collaboration with Indiana's Upland Brewing and is a sour beer made with mayhaw fruit and fermented in Louisiana's first foeder,
