BATON ROUGE, LA, - Tin Roof Brewing Co. has announced the launch of the highly anticipated Bandit Blonde Ale on draft in the Baton Rouge area market.
Bandit Blonde Ale will be available at many local bars and restaurants starting Wednesday, November 9th, just in time for homecoming.
The name Bandit Blonde pays homage to the famous defensive unit responsible for helping LSU bring home the 1958 National Championship.
The beer will be a light-bodied, crisp American blonde ale, perfectly suited for Tiger tailgating.
Official collegiate licensing for the beer is still in the works. However, Tin Roof has been working closely with LSU, and students have already been attending regular brewing sessions at Tin Roof throughout the semester as part of a new, brewing-based food science course.
The brewery also provides the LSU AgCenter with cattle feed. Thousands of pounds of spent grain from the brewing process are sent to the dairy on a weekly basis.
Tin Roof has pledged 10% of their Bandit Blonde sales to the LSU Foundation until the licensing reaches final approval.
Tin Roof Brewing Company was founded in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and began operations in November 2010.
Tin Roof will now offer three flagship brands: Bandit Blonde Ale, Perfect Tin Amber Ale, and Voodoo Bengal Pale Ale.
