At Lafayette Brewing Company, we are dedicated to great beer, great food and lots of fun! With our recently re-vamped pub menu, we know everyone will find something to love.

We brew our beers on site in a 15 barrel brewhouse located directly below the main bar in the basement. Starting from the grain silo in our back parking lot, our brewers are creating beer right here from water, barley, hops and yeast, sometimes spices and always passion. Stop in soon for a pint of the freshest beer you’ll find… Cheers!More
