Top 10 Louisiana Beers of 2012
This is according to Jay D. Ducote, Baton Rouge blogger and personal role model of mine. He asked me, Jeremy "Beer Buddha" Labadie, Polly Watts from Avenue Pub, Vanessa Gomes from Barley Oak, Eric Ducote, and Brenton Day to submit our top 5 beers of the year brewed in Louisiana and created a Top 10 from our replies. I think I'm attributed in the blurb for every beer on the list that I had a part in nominating.
Anyway, GO CHECK IT OUT! It's awesome to see more an more advocating around craft beer in Louisiana. THAT'S THE DREAM! Check out the other blogger's blogs as well, and make them a part of your Louisiana beer blog reading.
Stay tuned this week for a write up of what Barley Oak in Mandeville is up to with their new brew pub, The Old Rail. I talked to Vanessa Gomes, the public face of the Barley Oak (formal title: Director of Marketing and Event Coordinator), Nick Powers, the owner of both establishments, Matthew Horney, the head brewer at the Old Rail, and the head chef there, Brett Monteleone. Keep an eye out for my blog post about my visit and my conversations with all these beer lovers.
