About us
Our story begins in the mid-1990’s when Raymond Pumilia, working from his first art studio in the New Orleans Central Business District began brewing on a large kitchen stove in the studio after a friend gave him a brewing kit. During this time period Brew Ha-Ha on Magazine Street was the primary retail outlet for home brewers, and Abita, Dixie and later on Acadian Brewing Company were the primary names identified with craft beer and small breweries in and around New Orleans.

Raymond continued to brew off and on as a hobby over the next 15 years while continuing his career in commercial photography, film and television in the roles of Lead, Set Decorating, Art Direction and Production Design. In a conversation with a close friend in a bar one night discussing their futures, Raymond was asked what was next professionally for him. He responded with, “I’m going to open a brewery.”
