The owner of the Saints and Pelicans is adding another Louisiana institution to his list.
Tom Benson is set to buy a majority share of Dixie Brewing Company. As part of the agreement Benson is committed to building a new brewery in the city within a few years. The old Tulane Avenue brewery was forced to close after Hurricane Katrina.
For now, the sports owner will oversee the century-old company's production at a brewery in Memphis, Tennessee.
