Where does the event take place?

Faubourg Brewery, founded as Dixie Brewing in 1907, is the oldest operating brewery in New Orleans. Gayle Benson, owner of the NFL’s New Orleans Saints and NBA’s New Orleans Pelicans, became majority owner of Faubourg in 2017 and subsequently invested in the brewery’s new state-of-the-art brewing facility, scenic brew park, and extensive taproom in New Orleans East with the goal of making the city as notable for its craft beer scene as it is for its music, culture, and food. Daze Between New Orleans attendees are invited to enjoy all the amenities the facility has to offer, from a top-notch beer selection to fantastic traditional Louisiana cuisine.
