Proudly of Thibodaux, Louisiana, Mudbug Brewery was founded in 2011 out of a passion for good beer, good fun, and Cajun ways. Today, Mudbug continues to go strong with five flagship beers and a host of unique specialties aimed at celebrating and sharing everything Cajun.

What’s a “Mudbug”?

In Louisiana, you can find small mud dwellings in wet, damp areas that look oddly like little skyscrapers all over the place. These are the homes of crawfish. And as such, many Louisianians have endearingly dubbed these little critters, “mudbugs”.

House of the Rising Sun

House of the Rising Sun has taken over brewery operations at Mudbug to continue brewing the Mudbug classics while creating new HotRS, highly drinkable yet edgy beers.




Every Friday during Lent we’ll be having a Louisiana Crawfish Boil by Boogadu Seafood.

Thursday, 3/17 — St. Paddy’s Day

LIVE MUSIC by The 45s (http://www.jaklocke.com/the45s/)
Crawfish Boil + HotRS Paddy’s Ale – green beer.


Come by, say hey, and have a pint of Cajun beer.

Our taproom features eight taps serving flagship beers, seasonals, and unique brews from the brewmaster himself. You’ll find a whole lot of merch available too with new stuff on shelves regularly. Not only that, but we host plenty of events from food & music concerts to sports parties. Join us on facebook to keep up with what’s going on. While you’re there, ask for a tour of the brewhouse to see some Cajun beer in the making.

What’s on Tap

What’s on Tap


Brewed with vanilla, cinnamon, and milk sugar, we’ve taken the flavor of every Cajun’s favorite treat, the legendary king cake, and created something truly special…The Perfect Golden Spiced Ale. Perfect for the season. Perfect all year long. [4.9% ABV]


Rise n’ Shine ANYTIME. Our take on a New Orleans classic. Chocolate and black malts create a roasted note that pairs perfectly with – what else? – cold-brewed Louisiana coffee, while milk sugar adds the creamy, sweet character to this stout. One sip of our coffee-laden stout will have you wondering why it took this long for a malted beer version of the French Quarter favorite to emerge.
