Thanks for all your support to date! We are open this weekend, 23 and 24 July from 11-9. On Saturday the 23rd, we look forward to having the Hatch and Harvest Food Truck on site and on Sunday the 24th Bub’s Burgers pop-up will be on the block! Cheers!
Construction is moving along nicely! Supply chain issues are slowing us down a bit but we think we will be ready for a late June 2022 opening. Keep your fingers crossed!
Our awesome new brewhouse from Craft Kettle (a NOLA company) is in town and ready to move to our space at 2606 St Louis in early 2022. Can’t wait to brew on this baby!
“Skeeta Hawk” is a shortened New Orleans “yat” version of “Skeeter Hawk” or “Mosquito Hawk” which can be heard in different parts of the South. As the name implies, dragonflies eat a whole lotta mosquitos!
We chose Skeeta Hawk as the name of our brewery because it helps highlight an often-overlooked aspect of New Orleans culture, namely it’s unique accent. Our accent is similar to what you often hear in New York City (i.e. drop the r) and is very different than the genteel southern accent incorrectly ascribed to people from New Orleans on popular media. Likewise, we feel that Skeeta Hawks are great representatives of our swampy, water-laden environment and are just plain cool. Did we mention that they eat a lot of mosquitos?!?
Check out our logo! Our Art Nouveau inspired design aims to capture the spirit of New Orleans via the strong, confident female figure while also evoking our natural environment as represented by the Skeeta Hawk (dragonfly) body. For fun, we threw in a few beer ingredients and of course the fleur de lis!
