The Acadiana Center for the Arts held its 6th annual Gulf Brew fundraiser in Parc International downtown where thousands of attendees sampled more than 150 brews from both local, domestic and foreign breweries. Non-drinking entertainment included karaoke, a brewer’s tent, a special release of LA 31’s Tres Passionne beer. Live music from Brother Dege, The Rayo Brothers and Corey Ledet was pumped through the park while Freetown Fries, Viva La Waffle and Dean-O’s sold their respective famed dishes. Party Central and Blue-Stream Services sponsored the event.
