Their beers have a refreshing tartness and complex spicy flavors. Fans of Belgian and French beers will love their lineup.

Brew Dog Dogma

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. 

New Beer from Epic

Epic BBBEpic BBBEpic has just released their latest new beers. I know, I know... it's beer hours at least since Epic released a new beer.  JK guys ;-)

#1 on the new releases is the Big Bad Baptist Imperial Stout.  Perhaps you remember the Jack Mormon Stout they recently released. Quite tasty and apparenty too offensive to actually sell in the state liquor stores.  Well, proving that they are equal opportunity offenders, here comes the Baptist.

At 11.7% ABV  this Imperial Stout is flavored with coffee and cocoa nibs and aged in bourbon barrels. 

 

 

 

Also arriving today is Epic's Pro-Am beer Festivious Scotch Ale.  Brewed in colaboration with local homebrewer Mike Hahn (long time friend of The Bayou and Beer Nut's Mark Alston) this  Scotch Ale should be great. 

If you are not familiar with the Pro-Am beers here's the scoop.  The Great American Beer Festival has introduced a new category in their competition for beers brewed using a local homebrewers recipe with that homebrewer.  Several local breweries have jumped in to this program and have produced some amazing beers.  We still have Uinta's Schwartz Pro-Am beer which was brewed withTravis Grimm's.
