Some one sent me this link to a blog, regarding Dixie's insurance, has anyone seen anything that validates these claims? Here is the link:

I don't know.  Haven't heard a word about Dixie Beer's fate but said in a previous post that we visited the brewery a year or so ago and it's built like a fortress.  As for damaged equipment, most of it was antiquated (not that that's a bad thing). See http://www.network54.com/Forum/424368/t ... il%2C+2004 for a look.

In anticipation that Dixie may be no more (but I hope I'm wrong), we picked up this pitcha at the Destrehan Fall Festival last weekend. It's about 10" x 12".

And it looks like some crawfish are defending their six pack.

I have no idea if this is true, but I do know I've been looking for Dixie since the storm and haven't seen it a single time. What an awful thing if we can't get our "Dix-pack of Sixie" no more. Da Bitch continues to take her toll.

Is in MY Fridge

a couple of weeks ago a friend and I went to the Half Moon and bought the last 4 dixies they had..we're keeping the last one ( we couldn;t NOT drink the other three)

Though I hope and pray they will be back in bidness eventually.

"....we couldn't NOT drink the other three!"

I think I'll borrow that after work this evening! (But it'll be MORE than three beers in my case).

The guy that delivers Dixie, among other things, told me last week that the brewery is shutting down. This doesn't mean that in the future someone might use the name again somewhere else.

So Dixie ain't dare no more needa! Benny's gonna have to write a whole 'nother song, maybe two or three! Dixie was my standard beverage to pair with my double cheeseburger on French wit' mynez, dressed, at Wallace & Raoul's parkin' lot (Where I-610 crosses Elysian Fields today).

... for one of the first of countless joys of New Orleans that I discovered upon settling here more than 30 years ago was Dixie beer. It even displaced Michelob as my favorite American cold one.

The name is too good not to be taken up by some future Brewer - perhaps headquartered in Beijing - but will the product taste the same?

There's an amusing passage in "Oyster" [food reference par excellence] - an unusually well-written and compelling, if gritty, novel (set in 1950s Plaquemines Parish before much of it washed away) by contemporary Louisiana author, John Biguenet - no frothy pseud, he - describing a half-drunk fisherman's lunch of "Dixies and salted crackers".

It wasn't an enviable life down there back then, but, while we have salted crackers in our house in 2005, we have no Dixies!
