Hey everyone,

I have a business trip next week in Leesville, LA. Anyone familiar with establishments serving better ales? I won't be able to drive to distant cities so hopefully there's something close.

Thanks.

I'm in Leesville the next couple of weeks. Where are you working? Don't know my schedule yet, but let me know if you find any place worth a repeat visit.

I'll be doing some network install work on Fort Polk. I might get lucky and find a decent beer at the club on post - if there is such a thing there.

Big Earl, I make a point to get away from the Quarter when I'm in New Orleans. Ft. Polk is in the boonies, for sure. Consider yourself lucky if you find anything beyond Sam Adams and Heineken. It's a little less than an hour from Alexandria, however. You might do better there.

I've been to a couple of places so far -- just Wally World and a convenience store -- but the closest thing to a local product was Shiner from Texas. They did have Shiner blonde, not just the bock. Haven't hit anything more comprehensive yet.

Hey, fellows! Don't down my state too much. Sure, north of the Red River is Baptist/dry. But even in the boonies, there are package stores that sell Abita, and Abita amber is better that Bud. And if you are really lucky, Crescent City Distributing (New Orleans) may have concented to place a Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale on the shelf. Don't laugh! I actually happens, even in Jena.

Not downing LA at all. Merely sharing info on beer availability. At the local level, not the state level.

I've been to N'awlins for Mardi Gras, more than once, and even remember some things about the experience. I would never down Louisiana.

And the food is good, too. I'll look around for Abita.

Thanks,
Tobias

Try Spirits West or Catfish Junction. Decent food and at least a couple of decent beers.

The Class Six on Ft Polk has the best selection, if you can get in there. Haven't found any other place with much selection in Leesville. Might try DeRitter.
