A Note on This Beer
Huddled among riverboat casinos on the banks of the Red River, deep in the balmy Southern city of Shreveport, Louisiana lies Great Raft Brewing.
They first grabbed our attention as one of Paste Magazine’s 8 Best Breweries in the Country, and have continued to pop up on “Best Of” lists ever since — from Thrillist and Men’s Journal to Food & Wine and Southern Living.
With all this attention, it’s no surprise craft fans across the country are dying to get a taste of Great Raft! But their brews are rarely found outside the Bayou State.
Which is why we’re stoked to hook you up with the brew that helped put Great Raft on the map! Today’s roasty, toasty, caramel-laced Reasonably Corrupt Black Lager.
Paste Mag ranks this 5.5% ABV sipper in the Top 10 Dark Lagers in the Country! But don’t let its onyx color fool you — the Southern brewers crafted this baby with a crisp and light body made for maximum crushability in the heavy Louisiana heat.
Bold aromas of chocolate and freshly brewed coffee rise from the dark pour. Notes of caramel and toffee give way to splashes of toasted malts and hints of crumbly graham crackers. A delicate, easy-going finish balances the heavy malt character, inviting sip after delicious sip.
Grab a couple cans of Reasonably Corrupt and a few of your closest drinking buddies, and find out for yourselves why everyone is talking about Great Raft.
