For the Love of Beer: A Celebration of Great Raft Brewing

Date: Tuesday, May 16th

Time: 6:30pm

Location: Sainte Terre

Price: $75/person (includes tax and gratuity)

Come join us as we celebrate all things Great Raft!  We are kicking off American Craft Beer Week by recognizing where it all started for Shreveport/Bossier City…Great Raft Brewing.  Great Raft has put Shreveport on the map in ways we have never been before, bringing recognition to artisan production in our area and reviving a sense of local pride. 

Jennie Merrill, the Director of Education for the Southern Food and Beverage Museum will be joining us in a spirited conversation with Andrew and Lindsay Nations to discuss the birth of Great Raft, their inspirations and process, the re-release of fan favorite Southern Drawl, and why we should all be drinking more beer.

To open the evening, Sainte Terre’s Chef Holly Schreiber will be preparing small bites paired with some of Great Raft’s most coveted beers, followed by a 3-course paired dinner on the grounds using Mahaffey Farms meats and produce.

Live music, beer trivia and other surprises will make this an evening with friends that you do not want to miss!

For the Love of Beer:  A Celebration of Great Raft is the first in a series of new events by Sainte Terre.  ‘Terre Talks’ will be highlighting local artisans, tastemakers and healers - pairing education with creation.  Upcoming events will include a marriage boot camp with Marriage and Family Therapist Tom Moore, wedding photography and floral workshops, food and wine intensives, and more!
