Dripp Hot Chicken finds permanent home at Great Raft Brewing


Exciting developments are in the works at Great Raft Brewing as they announce the permanent home of Dripp Hot Chicken within their brewery. Great Raft Brewing is located at 1251 Dalzell St.

Dripp Hot Chicken is the brainchild of Michelle and Caleb King, renowned for another local business, Dripp Donuts.

In the Northwest Louisiana culinary landscape, Dripp Hot Chicken has remained a popular gem. Operating from a food truck, they have tantalized taste buds across Shreveport-Bossier. Now, a new chapter unfolds as Dripp takes charge of the kitchen at the Great Raft Brewing Tasting Room, marking a permanent partnership.
