BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A restaurant known for its craft beer selection opened its doors to a number of brewers Saturday afternoon.

The Pelican House, located on Corporate Boulevard, hosted their first Delta Brewers Ball. At least a dozen breweries from Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas traveled to Baton Rouge for the event, which came from a want to get people to try new beers that they may not have had a chance to try.

"We wanted to feed everybody," said Pelican House co-owner Chris Juge, "We wanted to get everyone together so they can talk to the brewers about the nuisances of their beers, and the upcoming releases that they'll have annually."

The event served as tribute to the rapidly growing craft beer industry in Louisiana.
