Shreveport-Bossier's Home Brewing Scene

Who knew that Shreveport-Bossier was home to such a thriving home brewing scene? I recently sat down with the Malt Munching Mash Monsters (MMMM), a local home brew club, to discuss the homemade brews they'll be bringing to the 2011 BREW event, scheduled to take place 3:30 p.m.-7 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 15 in downtown Shreveport's Festival Plaza.

Mash Monster Jeff Pieper, who is also a member of the brewing club Shady Grove Brewing, listed the four beers he'll be bringing to BREW: "a cream ale, a Bohemian pilsner, a robust porter, and a blackberry mead."

If anyone out there in internet-world is looking for a way to get started in the world of home brewing, I highly recommend contacting this friendly and knowledgeable group of beer ninjas. The best way to do so is by visiting their website at and signing up for the user's forum.
