New Bottled Beers available: Red Bridge and Coors Light

Today, we added two new beers to the cooler: Red Bridge and Coors Light.

Red Bridge is an important beer for us to have because it's a gluten-free beer. In addition to those who adhere to gluten-free or wheat-free diets, Red Bridge is a beer for the estimated three million Americans who suffer from Celiac disease. The beer is made from sorghum, with imported hallertau and domestic cascade hops. I haven't tasted one yet, but it's something we wanted to have available on the menu for our customers. We'll be working to put together a list of gluten-free items on our menu, but in the meantime, we know that our Red Beans and Rice is gluten free.

The second beer is Coors Light. Why Coors Light? It's my fault. I'm a sucker for cold beer and I like the fact that the mountains on the Coors Light label turn blue when the beer is cold. Yes, it's a marketing gimmick, but it worked on me. Oh yes, and it's my wife's favorite beer. Domestic bliss is important, you know. Sadly, Miller Lite had to go to make room for Coors Light. If you're a big Miller Lite fan bothered by this change, drop us an e-mail to and let us know; maybe there's room for both of them if we do some creative cooler shuffling.
