Red River Brewing

Before Red River Brewing, it had been over a century since Shreveport had a brewery it could claim as its own. On a mission to change that and bring quality local beer to their fellow Louisianans, Red River took the operation to commercial brewery status in the fall of 2013, and now their nano-brewery is supplying some of Shreveport’s favorite brews.

Red River makes beer with a personality that could also fit with the rest of the flavor profiles of Louisiana. For example, Hay Ryed is an American wheat ale brewed with a hint of rye and hops. The beer is perfect for enjoying the outdoors throughout the long Louisiana summers. It partners perfectly with a traditional crawfish boil or grilled fish. The River Monster is Red River’s answer to the hop lovers among us. The American pale ale is packed with two-row malt but combines that with a generous portion of hops that give it a citrus and spicy bitterness as well. They aim for an aggressive but drinkable flavor profile so that nobody has to be afraid of the Monster, but it still packs a mean bite.
