A Foundation Is Established

Cane River Brewing Company

Our Story:
We say no wake zone because it represents everything that CRB is. From our founders to our philosophy, CRB believes in taking the time to slow down and enjoy the simple things in life. For us, that means great beer and even better company.

Our brewery is housed in a refurbished cotton gin building that is nearly a century old. The overlap between this historic space and the birth of a new business is a perfect representation of what Natchitoches is all about: rooted in history but constantly evolving.
