Gayle Benson [Tom Benson's widow] is retiring the Dixie Beer brand name!

Dixie Beer, the oldest brewery in New Orleans, will change its name

I give the idea a thumbs up because it is best for business. If you really want all people, including black & brown people, to buy New Orleans-based beer outside of the Louisiana state lines in the 21st century, you cannot risk being racially insensitive. But I'm just a 45-year-old black man from Louisiana and currently in Arkansas so what the hell do I know?!? wink

It is actually a big deal when a company retires its brand name.
