BROOKLYN, N.Y. - April 17, 2013 - PRLog -- Let the "soul-tickling music" live once more in Brooklyn this May as the Third Annual Bayou n' Brooklyn Music Festival brings to everyone Cajun culture straight from Louisiana.

This year's festival is sponsored in part by Lafayette Convention & Visitors Commission;, and Greater New York Arts Development fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council Inc. (BAC).  

Bayou n’ Brooklyn announces it’s official brewery sponsor, Acadiana’s Bayou Teche Brewery of Arnaudville, Louisiana USA. Bayou Teche Brewing’s first beer, LA-31 Biere Pale was recently given glowing reviews by two of the world’s most respected beer experts in the April issue of ‘All About Beer’ magazine. For more info:

“Red beans and rice, jambalaya, sauce piquant, shrimp Creole, chicken and sausage gumbo, hot boudin, boiled crawfish, fried seafood platters, crawfish bisque and ettoufee and catfish court bouillon – in Louisiana we take our food seriously.  No other regional cuisine in this country is more complex, varied, or elegant as ours.  Or near as well seasoned. I realized that Louisiana craft beer is the perfect pairing for the Cajun and Creole cuisine of South Louisiana.”  -Brewmaster, Karlos Knott

Today, in that converted old rail car near the banks of the Bayou Teche, innovative ales are being crafted true to the brewers’ original intent – beers that compliment the unique foods and lifestyles of South Louisiana.

This year we’re cooking up one pot famous Jambalaya meal for Saturday events, and preparing to complement with Bayou Teche’s biscuity malt center, herbal hop, mellow LA-31 Bière Pâle. a distinct new style of beer which is a mix of Belgian malts and American hops and yeast designed to enhance the unique cuisine.

With just a month until the festival, the Bayou n' Brooklyn team sought to spread the word of their Indiegogo campaign entitled "Brooklyn's Only Cajun-Creole-Zydeco Festival" to be able to raise 2,000 dollars for the festival's realization. Their Indiegogo campaign offered different perks that entitled its funders Cajun memorabilia, passes, and treats which would not only make their Cajun music experience worthwhile but memorable as well.
