My two greatest loves are reuniting once again!

If there's one thing I love, it's beer. And if there's two things I love, it's beer and talking about the Barksdale Bubble. That's why I'm super excited to announce that one of my favorite local breweries is bringing back their ultra-popular Barksdale Bubble IPA.

You may remember last year when Great Raft Brewing introduced us to their new awesomely-named IPA. One year ago, Great Raft rolled out the Barksdale Bubble Double Dry Hopped Oat IPA. They'll be releasing the Barksdale Bubble annually in November in honor of Veterans Day. The Barksdale Bubble IPA will be available to the public on November 11th.

The beer is brewed with Yakima Chief Hops Veterans Blend. Yakima Chief Hops partners with a different nonprofit organization every year, allowing them to give back to the men and women that have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. This year, they will be making a charitable donation to K9s For Warriors.

According to their website, "K9s For Warriors provides highly-trained Service Dogs to military veterans suffering from PTSD, traumatic brain injury and/or military sexual trauma. With the majority of dogs coming from high-kill rescue shelters, this innovative program allows the K9/Warrior team to build an unwavering bond that facilitates their collective healing and recovery."

I'm so excited to announce that Great Raft Brewery is bringing back this incredibly awesome IPA! I remember how excited I was last year when I saw the news, and just as importantly, when I saw the incredibly designed can for the first time. I'm beyond pumped to have this beer back in our lives!

Last year, due to COVID-19, the Great Raft Tasting Room was unavailable, but this year, things will be different! You can head to Great Raft on November 11th to enjoy the Barksdale Bubble IPA in their Tasting Room.
