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.

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.
[3.9% ABV, 11 IBU]


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.
[6.5% ABV, 35 IBU]


Mudbug’s crisp IPA honors the great gulf waterway that winds across all of Cajun Country and links industries from Texas to Florida. That’s a lot of hardworking taste buds en route. Ones that could use a balance of citrus flavors and hoppy bitterness without the bite. So, Mudbug brewed the perfect Cajun companion.
[4.9% ABV, 38 IBU]


Launched by German brewing traditions, Pelican Pilsner is brought to life using only grain water yeast, and hops. Incredibly smooth yet surprisingly edgy – the perfect brew to tame the sweltering heat of a south Louisiana summer.
[5.5% ABV, 32 IBU]


“Swamp Sneakers”. “Dulac Slippers”. “Breaux Bridge Pumps”. A pair of white rubber boots goes by many names in Louisiana. From the boat to the festival and everything in between, shrimpers and fisherman swear by them; Cajuns live by them. Here’s to the hard workers and life’s enjoyers. A smooth, relaxing beverage after the long day is done.
