A new Dixie Brewery will be opening its doors in New Orleans East.
The MacFrugal's warehouse, which burned in a spectacular fire in March 1996, is nearing the end of its $30 million renovation.
Dixie's general manager Jim Birch said yesterday that by December, beer will be brewed at the new plant and hopes the doors will open to the public by January 2020.
Councilmembers said they hope the new brewery will revive an area of the city that needs an economic boost.
