And now, The Summer of Ghost is back for another year per Parish’s Facebook page. Distribution is expected June 14, 2018. It was a wild success last year giving locals and tourists alike a chance to taste an IPA that would usually be a long drive and long lines directly at the source.

Parish Brewing out of Broussard,┬áLA, has been serving up the state’s best beer since 2014 when they released their now famous Double Indian Pale Ale, Ghost in the Machine. Rated as “elite” on Beer Advocate with a score of 98, this beer can be put side-by-side with any similar style brew in the country.

The Brewery’s Founder, Andrew Godley, just announced today that Parish will be made available to the entire state of Louisiana. Now, the fine folks north of Interstate 10 can finally enjoy the juicy goodness.

Even better news for craft beer lovers is the fact that Ghost will be served in mass quantities this summer.

Parish released the previous two batches of Ghost as a brewery only release. These releases came with much hype, which created long lines on a Friday morning before the brewery opened. Craft beer fans ranging from Houston to New Orleans would drive to the small town Broussard just to land a 4-pack in the fridge.

But, the people have spoken. The fans wanted more hops and Parish has listened. Parish will be releasing mass quantities every week for the entire summer starting around July 4th, 2017. With Parish Envie already an everyday beer to go along with the new Jucifer IPA from Gnarly Barley, it’s looking like Louisiana will have an excellent choice of hops for a long time coming.
