A Note on This Beer
Why should you snag a can or two of Barksdale Bubble? Here are the top 3 reasons:
1 - It’s freakin’ delicious! To craft this juicebomb, the brewers used a special “Veteran’s Hop Blend” from Yakima Chief. It’s loaded with Idaho 7, HBC 630, Ekuanot, Azacca, and HBC 472 Hops. That’s 5 different varieties, including 2 types of experimental cones you’ve probably never tried!
In this brew’s ultra-soft, oat-filled body, they create flavors of fresh orange juice, drippy peach, ripe apricot, and ruby red grapefruit.
2 - It supports an awesome cause! That special hop blend does more than just bring the bold flavors — part of the profits go to the organization K9s for Warriors. So when you savor its hop-soaked deliciousness, you’re also helping a disabled or PTSD-stricken veteran get a highly-trained service dog!
3 - It’s from Great Raft! Pretty much everyone agrees that this Shreveport crew ranks among the Bayou State’s best. Gear Patrol lists them as a Top 10 in Louisiana, and Thrillist says they have the “best, most consistent beers… in the state!”
To recap, this is a delicious beer from a world class brewery AND it supports an awesome cause. Why wouldn’t you want a sip?
Great Raft is one of Thrillist’s 10 Best Breweries in Louisiana!
