GRACE & GRIT IS BACK Y’ALL. THIS IS NOT A DRILL. I REPEAT. THIS IS NOT A DRILL. Holy shit. SHIT THAT IS HOLY. HOLY SHIT!!! Okay, alright, I’ll settle down now. There, now that I’ve taken a breath and have stopped absolutely spazzing my brains out, I’ll let you in on a little secret. It’s kinda a big deal. How big, you may ask? Well, big enough that any time I’m lucky enough to see it, every last beer in my cart gets put back, just so I can refill it with Great Raft’s Grace & Grit. So yeah, ya may wanna keep reading on if you wanna find out what’s really good.
Grace & Grit Is A Big Deal
Now you’re all probably thinking, “Wtf is wrong with this man and why is he not institutionalized yet?” Well, I certainly agree with both of those sentiments, but that’s not the point today. The point IS, if you see a pack of these, GRAB THEM. “Oh, but I’m not a huge craft beer fan, Scott“. Didn’t ask that and I don’t give a shit either. “That sounds like some new age, hipster, flannel wearing beer“. Keep talking, as long as you grab it nerd. “Now is this something I’d even really like? You never think about what us snowflakes want!” If you don’t shut up and grab it at this point, IDK what I’m going to do, but I’m sure it won’t be looked upon fondly. Seriously, this isn’t one of the best IPAs I’ve ever had, it’s one of the best BEERS I’ve ever had. And I’ve had ALOT of beers. Enough that if I gave y’all an exact count, I’m half convinced I would wake up to a beer intervention tomorrow morning instead of College Gameday. This is without a doubt, a beer you want, no, NEED to try.
WHY It’s such a big deal
If we’re being honest, this is probably setting expectations pretty high. But I’m positive those expectations will be met. Great Raft Brewing in Shreveport makes this beauty of a Double IPA and I make sure to grab it any chance possible. It’s only available as a LIMITED RELEASE, so when it comes out, there isn’t long to score them. It was actually by luck and chance that I managed to score a 4 pack of them. Unless the schedule has changed, I’m pretty sure it’s only available for a few months out of the year. While it may be available at their taproom more often, I’ve only seen it in the wild a couple times. But if my opinion isn’t good enough for you, I suppose the fact that it won a FRIGGIN’ GOLD MEDAL at the 2017 U.S. Open Beer Championship would be the next best thing. Seriously, IT IS THE HYPE.
To Drink Or Not To Drink
Now I’m not gonna lie to y’all. I haven’t cracked open my 4 pack of Grace & Grit yet. So while I can’t do a legit Dweebs Downing Brews on it yet for y’all, I’d be doing y’all a damn disservice if I didn’t try to convince y’all to go try to find some to enjoy before the Tigers beat that Bama ass on Saturday. It’s one of the best IPAs I’ve ever had and it’s just not one I can open quite yet. It’s one I gotta wait to crack with the boys at the moment of LSU’s kickoff this Saturday. I’ve had prior brews of this before, but some breweries like to toy with limited release brew’s recipes sometime. So you’ll be hearing from the Dweeb OFFICIALLY on this soon enough.
So if you need something to chew over just how bad you NEED this beer, then head on over to Ben’s Burgers. Our boy Ben will hook you up with whatever pre-Gameday needs your stomach has. Maybe not Grace & Grit, but hey, it ain’t Ben’s Beers for God’s sake. Use some context clues y’all.
May your Burger stay stuffed and your drink never run out.
