Tin Roof Brewing releases Voodoo Pale Ale just in time for their new Baton Rouge Funk Fest. Tin Roof, based in Baton Rouge, dubs Voodoo Pale Ale as “their new flagship,” and describes this new release as:
“…A heavily dry-hopped American Pale Ale, which relies on malted and flaked oats to enhance the tropical and fruit flavors provided by the hops.”
Expect a fruit and pine forward flavor and aroma from the inclusion of Citra, Simcoe, and Waimea hops. The heavy dry-hopping as well as use of oats and wheat give the beer a naturally hazy appearance.
The first time you will be able to try Voodoo Pale Ale is at The Baton Rouge Funk Fest, an all day free concert from 1:30 to 7:30 on May 13th at the brewery.
Voodoo Pale Ale will be available in 12oz cans within Tin Roof distribution following its release.
Style: Pale Ale
Hops: Citra, Simcoe, Waimea
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: May, 2017
Tin Roof Bayou Bengal, the officially licensed beer of Louisiana State University (LSU), debuts in late August.
Earlier this summer, Baton Rouge, Louisiana based Tin Roof Brewing Company allowed LSU fans and members of the local community blind taste a plethora of test batches of the would-be beer. The future beer would be perfect for tailgating, grilling out, etc.
The response was so overwhelming, the brewery could only accommodate 5% of the overall applicants for the panel.
Ultimately, a premium American lager style was chosen. A solid, clean, crisp beer great for the persistent heat of Louisiana. (Yes, even in the fall).
“There were no less than five distinct Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) styles represented in the slate of eight,” said Audra Gaiziunas, CEO of Tin Roof Brewing Company. “We had a fantastic time and those who attended provided outstanding and detailed feedback.”
The brewery tells Beer Street Journal that Tin Roof Bayou Bengal should be available in late August, just in time for LSU’s first football game.
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: Late August, 2016
Tin Roof Gose with the Flow debuts today, with bottles hitting shelves by July. This is a completely new beer by the Louisiana based brewery.
Typical of the nose style (which is on fire in the U.S. these days), Tin Roof Gose with the Flow uses coriander and Himalayan Pink Sea Salt in the brewing process. Lactic bacteria and ale yeast create the tartness. The result is a great heat-beating beer.
This is our take on an old German beer that was almost extinct. We used a mix of wheat and barley, spiced it up with Coriander and Himalayan Pink Salt and finally fermented with both yeast and lactic bacteria. The result is a smooth flavor with almost no bitterness and a slight sour spiciness, followed by citrusy zest. The finish is crisp and dry with a mouth puckering sensation. Enjoy this very refreshing brew after mowing the yard or a day at the beach.
Tin Roof Gose with the Flow will be a 22 ounce bottle and draft offering starting in July, 2016.
Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft.

Tin Roof Brewing has jumped the border of Louisiana to Mississippi. Brewery founders William McGehee and Charles Caldwell both hail from Natchez, Mississippi and are excited to bring their beer back home. According to the brewery, focusing on Louisiana and Mississippi will be key before any other markets are entertained.
This might be last week’s news from some, but Tin Roof Brewing has just released a new seasonal – Juke Joint IPA. A little something to make your spring hoppier…
India Pale Ale with a solid malt backbone, huge floral and citrus aroma, and a nice strong bitterness up front that fades and does not leave you puckered. Juke Joint is the aroma hop lovers dream.

Availability: Draft only
7% ABV, 60 IBUs
