Miel (pronounced ME-ELLE) Brewery and Taproom was first conceived in 2016 by Alex Peyroux and Janice Montoya, a couple of nerds with a love of science and all things art. Their eagerness to do what they love for a living and build a community to share their handiwork is what drives them to make Miel a reality. Miel opened its doors on October 13, 2018 thanks to the unceasing support from family, friends, the Irish Channel community, and the New Orleans beer community.


Alex's parents picked up beekeeping as a hobby and began supplying Alex and Janice with enormous amounts of raw delicious Louisiana honey.  After doing some research on honey, they came to find to that the word miel means honey in Spanish and French. Miel as a word acts as a bridge, connecting both their backgrounds and cultures.  Legally Miel cannot make mead due to licensing, but the plan is to use honey as an ingredient in a couple of beers as a nod to our namesake. 


(1) To provide patrons with fresh beer made by using as many local ingredients as possible.

(2) To be environmentally friendly, responsible for the entire lifecycle of all our products, and conscious of how we use resources.

(3) Treat others how we would like to be treated.
