It’s been a busy week here in South Louisiana celebrating American Craft Beer Week. Good to see some of you out and about this week drinking some great hand crafted beer and supporting the businesses who are serving them. I had a great time last night at both The Pelican House and The Cove trying out Tin Roof’s Oak Street coffee porter (which was fantastic) and meeting Paul and Wanda Blacksmith, founders, owners, and brewers of Crooked Letter Brewing from Ocean Springs Mississippi.
This evening, I’ll be hitting up the Tin Roof ACBW party at the brewery in Baton Rouge. Jay Ducote of Bite and Booze will be there cooking fried fish and chipotle mac and cheese, and there will be a few one off kegs available in addition to their flagship beers. The one offs include a Citra dry hopped Blonde, triple dry hopped Juke Joint IPA and Java Jeaux coffee porter aged with Community Coffee beans and cocoa nibs. This is a family friendly event, so come on out and enjoy the beautiful weather.
Also in Baton Rouge this evening, The Chimes will be tapping a few new to the market kegs of New Belgium beers, Abbey, Bier de Mars and the G. Love collaboration, Peach Porch Lounger.
The Bulldog will feature Saint Arnold’s Boiler Room Berliner Weisse at 6:00.
****Just found out that Leroy’s will have Founders KBS on tap beginning at 5:30. Very limited amount.
In New Orleans, Avenue Pub is featuring locals night with some specialty beers and casks from Louisiana and Mississippi. The Gnarly Barley crew will be there to debut their beer at the Pub. Meanwhile, Parish Brewing founder, Andrew Godley, will be at the Buffalo Wild Wings in Metairie with a cask of apricot and Galaxy hopped Canebrake. And The Crescent Pie & Sausage Company will be having a beer dinner featuring New Belgium brews.
The Barley Oak in Mandeville will be tapping a keg of Stone’s Tiger Cub saison. And Old Rail Brewing will preview their barrel aged barleywine this evening.
Hope you get out and enjoy some more craft beer tonight and this weekend.
