Great Raft Brewing relaunches Southern Drawl Pilsner

 

 

Great Raft Brewing out of Shreveport, LA relaunches it’s Southern Drawl Pilsner today with a new recipe that includes the addition of Louisiana rice and a change in hop varieties! The new formulation gives the beers name true meaning with the addition of regional Louisiana rice, “southern” flavor that adds a crispness to the beer.  In another change, the use of Cascade and Mosaic hops as a dry hop give the beer an American hop forward flavor. “The goal is to create a delicate but hoppy nose without the typically associated bitterness,” says brewery founder Andrew Nations, likely to the relief of those turned off by some hop-forward styles because of the bitter finish. “Most people like the aromatic qualities of hops but not the bitterness and often confuse the two. This beer challenges that perception.”
