    You should probably venture out of the Laffy bubble every once & awhile. SHV/Bossier has 3 breweries now including Red River Brewing, Flying Heart, & Great Raft. One of Red River's founders is a Tech grad & is working on a Bulldog Kolsche. Hopefully it'll taste a helluva lot better than RaginCajun...which is an extremely disappointing lager.

    Well, I've heard from a marketing research firm the hottest seller in the Ruston metroplex would be "Mutt Malt Liquor"...followed closely by "Stiff Dog"

    Actually we have two Ragin Cajun beers. An ale Kolsche style was the first and the lager is the second to be licensed.....

    When it comes to Louisiana beers I got a pretty good handle on it. It's my business. Both are good beers. Great Raft has a few I like, Red River has some work to do. Haven't got around to Flying Heart.

    Bottom line is if you find Ragin Cajun Lager disappointing that is more of a personal preference rather than a mark on the beer. Then again what the heck does someone from Southern Arkansas know about beer????

    Great Raft makes some pretty damn good beers, like the revamped Grace and Grit and Commotion. Old Mad Joy is tasty too.

    Flying Dog and Red River never really left an impression on me. But there's no denying that Great Raft makes some very good beers, any North LA hate aside.

    So not only is a local brewery brewing a beer for your school but it just happens to be the same type that ours did? I just love it when other areas of the state continuously steal our culture and ideas and then proceed to claim it for themselves. However, nothing will be more egregious than the stealing of the "word" Geaux.

    Can someone explain to me why BlueDog is allowed to post here? I don't see that same sort of reciprocity over at BBB.

    We should start by cutting out completely the school in Shreveport.

    Great Raft isn't bad. Reasonably Corrupt is solid.

    Because Turbine is a liberal. More concerned about appeasing the outside view than the inside.

    Just try it sometime. Say something negative or, dare I say, type out a swear. He'll delete, edit or reassign that post. But these outside dbags that come here and trash us? Perfectly fine.

    Rep. Cedric Glover blasts LSU president for criticizing bill to ban universities' 'official' beers; read full letter here
    http://www.theadvocate.com/baton_rou...3b6043635.html

    Read Glover's full letter below. I guess the "D" behind his name stands for douchebag.

    It was certainly disappointing to see LSU President Dr. King Alexander respond in such a personal and petty way regarding House Bill 610, my bill that would prohibit colleges and universities from authorizing an "official" alcoholic beverage.

    LSU and the University of Louisiana ... at Lafayette have signed such contracts and local breweries market beers as the official brews of the universities.

    Alexander said in a news story about my bill in The Advocate: "It's nonsense. Glover likes to throw stones. He's never been a fan of LSU."

    Like just about all Louisianans, I love LSU and all of our other colleges as well.

    But HB 610 isn't just about our colleges. It's about our people and especially our children. Of all the collective negatives we possess as a state, the one we can least afford to continue mindlessly ushering forward is our inclination to overindulge in alcohol.

    It affects and magnifies all of the others. From our nation-leading homicide, HIV and hypertension levels to our shameful rates for violence against women, alcohol abuse is a common denominator.

    To be clear, there is just about no aspect of my life in which I am a teetotaler. HB 610 is no effort at holier than thou-ism. I just happen to believe we can do and be better than college-branded beer.

    In his attempt to justify college-branded and sanctioned beer, Alexander ignores all of the college student specific data regarding underage consumption, binge drinking, alcohol fueled sexual and physical assaults, and instead argues that Budweiser and other major brands have been using purple and gold in their advertising for years without LSU ever receiving any financial benefit. If there was ever a statement from a college president that strikes a bitter and ironic chord with his students, then this should be it.

    LSU and other colleges have been and continue to rake in billions of dollars from the blood, sweat, broken bones, and dreams of youngsters who are not even old enough to legally buy beer. The universities' return is much higher than the tuition, room and board invested through scholarships. Yet these same young people cannot legally earn a single red cent from the tickets, television, tailgating and all the purple and gold paraphernalia that bears their names.

    If logic leads Dr. Alexander to believe that LSU is currently being exploited and taken advantage of by the beer companies, then he should be honest enough to admit that colleges are doing the same thing to the underage youngsters who give their brands such high value and exposure in the first place, and then fight to justly compensate them in the same way he wants to cash in now.

    A fifteen percent share of all the revenue generated from college sports that's split amongst those who actually provide the sweat equity that makes it all possible sounds like the start of a fair deal. So if the king of LSU wants his cut of the beer money, let's make sure the kids get theirs, too.

    Rep. Cedric Glover, D-Shreveport

    Louisiana House of Representatives District 4
