Great Raft At Arm’s Length Releases September 25th

Great Raft At Arm's Length

Great Raft Brewing (Shreveport, LA) will release they’re newest bottle on September 25th, At Arms Length.

At Arm’s Length is an India pale lager, or hoppy lager. A clash of German brewing, and American flavorful hop-genunity. (Yeah, I just made that a word.)

Throwing an absurd amount of American hops at a classic lager seemed only natural for us. Shhhhh, don’t tell the Germans… We like to keep them AT ARM’s LENGTH.

Great Raft At Arm’s Length will be available in 22oz bombers.

Style: India Pale Lager
Availability: 22oz Bombers, Draft.
Arrival: 9/25/14

6% ABV

Great Raft Reasonably Corrupt Launching in Cans

Great Raft Reasonably Corrupt Black Lager

Great Raft Brewing (Shreveport, LA) will launch a new can – Reasonably Corrupt, in November. This will be the third year round can offering.

Great Raft Reasonably Corrupt is a black lager, an offering the brewery never expected to give the 365 treatment. A sleeper hit, if you will.

“We never anticipated canning Reasonably Corrupt as a year-round offering, but our fan base has been loud and clear,” said Andrew Nations, co-founder and president of Great Raft Brewing.

While Resonably Corrupt has already been available on draft, six pack cans hit retailers just after Halloween. The brewery commissioned Status Serigraph of Knoxville, Tennessee with typography from DeRouen & Co. of Austin, Texas.

The name? A jab a Louisiana politics.

Style: Schwarzbier
Hops: Fuggle, Hallertau
Malts: Premium Pilsen, Chocolate, Caramel, Munich

Availability: Draft (Current) Cans (November, 2014)

5.5% ABV, 30 IBUS
