The owner of Dixie Beer, Gayle Benson, today announced the beer will be changing its name.

"We are preparing to change the name of our brewery and products that carry the Dixie brand," Benson said today. "Our nation and community are currently engaged in critical conversations about racism and systemic social issues that have caused immeasurable pain and oppression of our black and brown communities."

Benson says that as New Orleans, and our country, continue to evolve; she finds it necessary to reflect on the role the brewery can play in making the community more united, strong and resilient for future generations.
