Our latest beer to arrive from BrewDog is Dogma. This crazy beer is brewed with guarana, poppy seeds and kola nut all blended together with Scottish heather honey. A conspiracy of transcontinental ingredients infused with some devastatingly BrewDog imaginative thinking.
Dogma was originally named Speedball after it's unique concotion of stimulants and depressants. The Kola Nut and Guruana are stimulants and the hops and poppy depressants. The TTB (Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau) however nixed the name Speedball quite quickly. So, upon U.S. soil it is now called Dogma. If you don't get the name change think about it for a while (oh, and don't forget to vote).
Only 60 bottles of Dogma arrived at The Bayou's so don't wait too long to give it a try.
