With Mardi Gras season officially back the folks at Chandeleur Island Brewing Company are celebrating it the only way they know how.
For the third year in a row, Chandeleur’s king cake ale has returned. The creamy ale is made with king cakes from Le Bakery in Ocean Springs which are placed inside a tank of Chandeleur’s freemason ale.
The idea for the festive brew started as a joke amongst the Chandeleur family, but has now become a Coastal favorite. Chandeleur Brewing Company Brewmaster Dave Reese said, “We feel a part of the community. People wait for it every year. We love doing it. We took a chance on it and our customers kind of trusted us enough to try it and it’s worked out so far. We have a great thing going here.”
The beer is available for a limited time only at the Chandeleur Brewing Company in Gulfport.
