Louisiana Breweries

I'll try to fill this out a bit as I can, but at least we've got all the names and cities in one place. Louisiana Travel has a really nice site that Jay Ducote put together for them, with most of the breweries but they have a lag in updating (because it's really nice content). This will be the down and dirty, if you just need a verified list of brewery names in Louisiana, list.
