Bugs and Beer

 Have you heard about Slow Food North Louisiana? Slow Food North Louisiana, which was founded in 2007 in Shreveport, is a chapter of Slow Food USA, and shares the mission to ensure good, clean and fair food for all. I have been fortunate to be a part of the Slow Food activities because of my job with Holiday Lanes. In an effort to continually improve the quality of food that we serve, Holiday Lanes became a corporate sponsor of Slow Food North Louisiana this year. We did so in order to keep our finger on the pulse of the Slow Food mission.

Slow Food is about real food. It’s about connecting the planet to the plate. It’s about celebrating the bounty of this planet through shared meals. And making sure we can continue to do this for generations to come. Today, I attended the Slow Food North Louisiana’s 4th annual crawfish boil. The event partnered with local Great Raft Brewing for an awesome bugs and beer event. I’m a big fan of “All you can eat crawfish” and today was no exception. The bugs and beer were flowing to the awesome music by Twang Darkly

Be still my Flying Heart

Flying Heart Brewing is preparing to celebrate its grand opening. On May 1, 2015, you will get a chance to taste Bossier City’s first craft beer. Don’t hate me because I got a sip tonight. I tasted the Fire House Blonde, and be still my flying heart, it was quite tasty. It was a light and crisp Kolsch. I’m not a beer drinker, and yet I really enjoyed this beer. I think you will too.

Ben Hart, co-founder, and as I found out quite handy guy, was so kind to tell me some of the history of the brewery. Flying Heart Brewing is located in historic and restored Bossier City Fire Station 6. I want to tell you all about it, but I’d prefer that you stop by on May 1st and let him tell you all about it. Ask him about the antique cooler and the 513 fire box.

Flying Heart does all brewing right on site in Bossier City. There are currently six flagship brews. Check them out. At their grand opening on May 1, you will be able to taste three of those brews. Louisiana Amber, Milk Maid Stout and Barrel 52.

Let’s celebrate this new business in Bossier City. Be sure to follow them on social media and show up for their grand opening on May 1. They are located at 700 Barksdale Boulevard in downtown Bossier.
