Local breweries collaborate on 'Liger' ale to celebrate rare LSU-SLU match-up
BATON ROUGE - Two southeast Louisiana breweries are celebrating a meeting between their hometown teams in their own distinctly southern fashion.
The Tin Roof and Gnarley Barley breweries, located in Baton Rouge and Hammond respectively, have announced a new collaboration to commemorate LSU and SLU's first meeting in 69 years. The new concoction is called Liger, a name derived from a combination of the schools' tiger and lion mascots.
The companies will officially debut the new "juicy pale ale" during a launch party at the Tin Roof brewery in Baton Rouge Friday, Sept. 7. The game kicks off the following day at 6 p.m. in Tiger Stadium.
