Tin Roof Bayou Bengal Lager can design

19 Jul

By now you should know that Tin Roof Brewing is partnering with LSU to release an officially licensed LSU beer. I was fortunate enough to be asked to be a part of the tasting panel, and the style that was eventually chosen was in my top 2. It will be an American lager, and the test batch had a nice lemony aroma and was an easy drinker with a clean finish that will surely make it a popular tailgate beer for this fall’s football season.

The can artwork was just approved today, and thanks to Audra Gaiziunas, CEO of Tin Roof, I’m one of the first to share it. When released, Bayou Bengal Lager will be sold in these beautiful cans, both as 6-packs and in 12-packs. The cans really did turn out great, and they should look great on local store shelves. Check out the design below.

As for the obvious question of when you’ll be able to buy these? Well, that’s still up in the air. The first batch was brewed last week. However, since lagers take longer to finish up than ales, we’re still more than a month away from the official release as of this posting. It’s expected that Bayou Bengal Lager will be available in time for the first LSU football game, and perhaps sooner. Beer releases are always a fluid situation (see what I did there?), so when I find out something more definite, I’ll be sure to post an update.
