Help Us Brew a Brand New Beer on Saturday, 11/25

Milk and cookies. Biscuits and gravy. Peanut butter and jelly. Some things just go together. Great Raft Brewing is combining two of your favorite things – donuts and beer – to make “Cheat Day” Donut Milk Stout.

But, we couldn’t use just any donut. We are using donuts from Southern Maid, a Shreveport institution famous for its glazed pieces of perfection.  

Brewed with over 350 glazed donuts, “Cheat Day” is a delicious way that Great Raft Brewing is celebrating another local business and the people who help make Shreveport awesome.

The tasting room is already open on Saturdays from 12-9 pm, but on Saturday, November 25th, we will not only open our doors, but also the brew deck to the public. Everyone is invited to help be a part of the brewing process by dropping a donut at either 12 pm or 2 pm.

And just when you thought this couldn’t get any sweeter, it does! If you join us for the donut drop, each person who drops a donut will receive a custom Great Raft Brewing  wrist band (think Lance Armstrong yellow bracelet). And this isn’t just to tell people how awesome you are for helping to make this beer, but it also gets you $1 off any Great Raft beer at the tasting room until Cheat Day Donut Milk Stout is released. If you return the wrist band on release day, you’ll get one free pint of the delicious beer you helped brew.

“Cheat Day” will be released on tap and in bottles on December 23rd at Great Raft Brewing.
