A Passion for Beer

Craft Beer

Within each batch of beer brewed by Chafunkta, you will enjoy a glass of fresh beer full of flavors. They also have a range of styles that will please all type of craft beer drinkers, from hoppy beers to more robust brews.

Voo Ka Ray IPA: Some IPAs can just be too bitter for some people’s taste. Even though Voo Kay Ray is an imperial IPA, this beer uses specific techniques during the brewing process to make sure there is a balance of flavors. The result? An IPA that packs all that delicious hop flavor without all the overpowering bitterness. 

Old 504: This porter is brewed with locally sourced coffee and Madagascar bourbon vanilla beans. This dark yet light-bodied ale packs plenty of robust flavors in each pour.

Bayou Blaze: Brewing a traditional Irish red ale, Chafunkta offers a beer with caramel and roasted flavors. Bayou Blaze is a great choice for fans of malty brews with its minimal bitterness and clean, dry finish.

Kingfish Ale: This beer is both crisp and refreshing like a lager, but it comes with all the complex flavors found in an ale. When you drink a Kingfish Ale, you’ll enjoy the subtle sweetness that lingers after each sip!

A Visit to the Taproom


With hours both during the week and weekend, you can stop by Chafunkta Brewing’s taproom with co-workers after leaving the office or head there with friends to hang out on a Saturday. They have a huge space inside with seating at the bar as well as seats throughout the taproom. When the weather is nice, they will even open up the garage doors so you can enjoy some fresh air while drinking their beer!

You can grab any of their beers on draft in pours ranging from 5 ounces to 16 ounces. If you want to try a range of beer styles, grab a flight! This will let you sample a few of their beers to see which one is your favorite.

At Chafunkta Brewing Company, they also host a range of events throughout the year. You can stop by when food trucks are parked outside and grab something to munch on or come by to enjoy live music when they have local bands playing at the brewing.

The good times don’t have to end when you leave the brewery either. You can take home a 32-ounce crowler can to pair with dinner or split with friends for a perfect night cap.
