Chandeleur (“shan-duh-leer”) Island Brewing Company is named after the 50 miles of uninhabited islands along the coast of Mississippi. The Chandeleur Islands are home to some of the best redfish and speckled trout fishing on the planet.


We are proud to announce our support for the Tarpon Tagging Project. Because we’re committed to the conservation of tarpon and understand that fishing is more than a simple pastime; we’ve teamed with Coastal Conservation Association and fisheries scientists to bring you the “Tarpon Tagging Box”. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this beer go to support local tarpon migration research.

Tarpon 12 Pack

For every Tarpon 12 Pack sold, we’ll donate a portion of the proceeds towards local tarpon migration research. Purchase your 12 pack from the Chandeleur Islands Brewing Company taproom.

To support the cause directly, consider making a financial donation.

While the timing of their annual migration is well documented by scientists, fishermen, and historic records, there is much we don’t know about these giant and ancient fish, including where they go after they leave the Alabama coast.

For the past couple of weeks, Hollie’s fish has been hanging out at the eastern tip of the Louisiana bird’s foot. Check out the map below to see the fish’s journey from the day it was tagged through Friday, August 30.
