Catahoula Common is a refreshing American Lager named after the state dog of Louisiana. Catahoula's light body and crisp finish makes for an enjoyable brew in our humid climate and is especially thirst quenching during the dog days of summer!

A slightly sweet, slightly dry, incredibly refreshing California Common!
It's light and crisp but also flavorful, with a white lacey head.
It's the perfect go-to replacement for your typical domestics.
It won't put any hairs on your chest or raise your IQ but it's required for any refrigerator.

certainly not the most interesting can of beer in the world, but a serviceable and drinkable brew, especially in the hot new orleans humidity, some of these can get quite malty, but this one stays light and crisp, a little more simple. which i think is a smart call given the weather there, its more refreshing than intriguing, but i am more than okay with that in this context. it has a nice frothy head, a paler color than most, and a high degree of clarity and carbonation, looks nice in the glass. a little lagered character to the nose, taste, and feel, a yeast strain with some flavor and a relative cleanness in the finish, which stands out more in the absence of the usual richer malt profile i expect in a common type. balancing hops is all at the end, and this drinks pretty quick. we had this alongside a nice quartet of oysters, and i thought it was a nice pairing, taking well to the brine and the nuance of the seafood, and washing the palate clean with bubbles on each sip, it warms up pretty well too. nowhere near as compelling as their jucifer, which is now just about everywhere down there, but a highly drinkable take on a style i would like to see more of!
