Tin Roof Brewery opened up during the last quarter of 2010 in Baton Rouge, LA and since that time they have managed to come up with two unique brews that locals are “geauxing” crazy for.
Tin Roof is a microbrewery that managed to put two new and unique beers on the market by the end of 2010. This first production of brews included “Perfect Tin Amber” and “Voodoo Bengal Pale Ale.” These two brews can be found on tap at restaurants and lounges all across southern Louisiana.
The brewery has just completed their first “canning” in late August, 2011 which will bring the brews to grocery, liquor and convenience stores in the Baton Rouge, New Orleans and the Northshore areas. More areas and locations will be added soon, as Tin Roof Brewery plans to triple its brewing capacity by the end of 2011.
The initial two beers produced by Tin Roof Breweries are designed to appeal to a wide range of customers, both male and female. So what are these two brews like?
Perfect Tin Amber
Perfect Tin Amber is an American style amber beer that is brewed with a combination of specialty malts, providing a unique flavor with hints of chocolate and toffee. Perfect Tin Amber is a medium bodied brew with a mild bitterness. Regardless, Perfect Tin Amber is an easy brew to drink anytime or anyplace.
Voodoo Bengal Pale Ale
Voodoo Bengal Pale Ale is a pale ale brew, as the name implies. Voodoo Bengal combines layers of flavors for a brew that that produces a nice aroma and a unique sweet flavor. The sweetness comes from the addition of pure Louisiana cane syrup. The sweetness of the cane syrup balances the bitterness with the malts.
Where to Find Tin Roof Beer
Perfect Tin Amber and Voodoo Bengal Pale Ale beers can be found on tap in Baton Rouge at Hooters, Schlittz and Giggles, Sammy’s Grill on Highland Road, Mellow Mushroom, Catfish Town, TJ Ribs, Holiday Inn South, Tsunami’s, Walk-On’s LSU location, and Voodoo BQ on Nicholson Drive.
