There were also Cajun food booths from local restaurants and live music from a few of Acadiana's favorite bands, Vagabond Swing, Corey Ledet and His Zydeco Band, and Snarky Puppy. But the thing that really impressed me about this festival, were the air-conditioned tents that the beer was being served up in! Since it was a hot, sultry afternoon in Cajun Country, this was most appreciated. Now this was definitely the way to go, for a summertime festival!
The proceeds from Gulf Brew will help to employ local artists and musicians and help to support the Arts in Education program. After 4 hours of sampling, we were in need of something substantial to eat, to soak up all of this fantastic beer, so we decided to head over to Bisbano's Cellar Door, where they serve up some of the best muffalettas, west of New Orleans. Cest bon, cher! Oh the life of a Cajun, is oh so good!
