For those LSU fans trying to drink away their sorrows after the NCAA rulings a few days ago, they may not have to look much further than the University itself. Yesterday the story started making the rounds that LSU is collaborating with a local micro-brewery and launching its own brand of beer this fall. The beer will be licensed by LSU, produced by Tin Roof Brewing company, but featuring a recipe designed by students in the food science department.
We can assume that the beer won’t be sold in Tiger Stadium – unless Mike Slive made alcohol sales a part of his changes and I missed it yesterday – but the beer will be available locally at least. It’s a fairly controversial idea for the university to get involved in, but as a beer drinker myself, I enjoy it. A name has yet to be decided on, but we can probably assume it will involve some variation of the letters ‘-eaux.’
