F&DB: Best LA Brewed Beer Tourny
Posted by tetu on 2/4 at 7:27 pm
Rules similar to last Tourny.
I have 4 groups of 8.

Pick 4/group that you want to see in the next round.


Group A (Rd 1)
Abita Oyster Stout
Abita Restoration Pale Ale
Abita Strawberry
Bayou Teche Boucanee
Covington Pontchartrain Pilsner
NOLA 7th St Wheat
NOLA Hopitoulas
Tin Roof Blonde


Group B (Rd 1)
Abita Turbodog
Bayou Teche Grenade
Bayou Teche Joie A Tous
Covington Strawberry
Heiner Brau Kolsch
NOLA Smoky Mary
Parish Grand Reserve
Tin Roof Perfect Tin Amber




Disclaimer: only commercially available brews that were produced more than once are being represented (sorry no pour me somethin mistah or abita black IPA).

To expedite the process I filtered the available brews (the above is only half of te list though). If one of your favorite beers isn't represented its probably BC it sucks. rutiger will probably agree and tell you how much it sucks (he probably thinks half of the above listed are absolutely terrible and I wouldn't argue. IMO there are maybe 3 great beers produced in LA and a few more good ones).

So go ahead and bitch about Covington bock or abita jockamo not making the cut...you've been warned.

PS. Don't ask why there is no dogfish head or fat tire.

Too bad I've only had like 4 of these beers total. Of those, Covington Strawberry (only when it's in season and on tap) was my favorite. Other wise, I like Heiner Brau

I don't think it will make it past this round as kolsches are rather boring, but I at least wanted to give it a nod.

you need to get out more.

FBD Krewe can show you the way, but you have to walk it.

No Mechahopzilla? It's been produced more than once by now.

It's the only challenger to Parish Grand Reserve in my opinion.

ETA: never mind, this is only half.

More rounds.

This is half. Wife and kids were late coming home and I was early. Figured we'd find the top few beers produced here before doing a Tourny on the top beers available here.

It's kinda depressing really. If we were in say a west coast state, or even Texas at this point, I think the list would be more interesting.

I actually think it was harder to do this than the Best Craft Beer. In some instances it was just really hard for me to make a distinction between some of those beers because few of them were head and shoulders superior to the competition. Oops.

truth. There's maybe two great beers in this list and one recipe was taken from a Homebrewer.
