Tin Roof Watermelon Wheat release party tonight!

14 May

Tin Roof Brewing‘s summer seasonal has arrived. The Watermelon Wheat is a seriously quaffable summer brew with a hint of watermelon that goes really well with outdoor activities here in south Louisiana. And the official release is this evening at The Bulldog in Baton Rouge, starting at 6PM. There you’ll be able to get it on draft, as well as sample a special cask of  it conditioned with basil and fresh strawberries. Country Table delivery will also be on hand to give out fresh watermelon samples. I’ll be there recording the Me & My Big Mouth Radio show with Chuck Pierce, so stop by and say hello.

The Cove will also have a special cask of Watermelon Wheat tonight, again with basil and fresh strawberries, but this time fermented with Belgian yeast. I’m looking forward to trying this one out  for sure.

I was able to sample one of  the first cans of this year’s batch last night, and this truly is a beer that “Tastes Like Summer” as the can suggests. It’s perfect for lounging by the pool or drinking after mowing the lawn. Get your first  taste of it tonight.

    Ale Runner, are you paid by beer companies to make any of the posts? The reason I ask is because I bought a six pack of this stuff last summer and 4 of the 6 are still in my fridge. This is one of the worst beers I have ever drank and I really wanted to like it. In fact I really want to like Tin Roof more than I do because they are local, but their beer is just not that great. The Juke Joint IPA is however the best beer they have ever put out.
    There is no way you enjoy the Watermelon Wheat though…..

      Not paid at all for any of it. I try to write about local beer releases and events. I actually do enjoy Watermelon Wheat. It has it’s place as a summer beer that goes well with outdoor activities. But we all have different tastes, so I completely understand if you don’t enjoy the Watermelon Wheat. It’s definitely not for everyone.

      But if I don’t like a beer, I try not to write about it. That’s why you’ll rarely see me write about certain breweries (one in particular on the Northshore whose name starts with a C and rhymes with Govington).

      I agree that Juke Joint is a good beer. I find that I like it better on tap than from the can. The hops seem to pop a little more in the draft version. The canned one seems to have a lingering bitterness that’s not there in the draft version. Not sure why that is.

      I still say Parade Ground coffee porter is their best beer. I think Tin Roof has improved over the years, and will continue to, especially with their new brewhouse, which should improve their consistency, something that I’ve had issues with from them in the past.

      Thanks for reading the blog, by the way. I appreciate you taking time to comment!

      Cheers.
