“We say #NoWakeZone because it represents everything that Cane River Brewing is. From our founders to our philosophy, we believe 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.

Natchitoches is the small southern riverside town Cane River Brewing gets to call home. Defined by that special blend of culture and tradition that can only be found in Louisiana, we couldn’t think of a better place to create a space for us to brew beer and bring people together.

Our community treats friends like family, creating a bond that is inexplicable to those that haven’t yet experienced it but invaluable to those that have. Whether you’re a Natchitoches native or a visitor just stopping through, we hope you’ll stop by and have a beer with us.” 

  • Hours: Thursday/Friday: 4pm – 11pm, Saturday: 11am – 12am, Sunday: 12pm – 8pm

“In 1716, Sieur Charles Claude Dutisné was sent to Natchitoches with a small company of colonial troops to build and garrison an outpost that would prevent the Spanish forces in the province of Texas from advancing across the border of French Louisiane. This strategic outpost was named Fort St. Jean Baptiste des Natchitoches. Economically, Natchitoches evolved into a primary French trade center in the Lower Mississippi Valley. Native American tribes of the three Caddo Confederacies played a vital role in establishing trade and communication links among the French, the Spanish and the Native Americans of the region…”
