SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) — Shreveport is the home of the latest example in the nation's "craft brewing" trend.

Great Raft Brewing launched several craft beers at bars and restaurants throughout Shreveport and Bossier City at events last week.

The Times reports that Great Raft Brewing featured three of its flagship beers at one such event. The featured brews are "Reasonably Corrupt," a black lager; "Commotion," an American pale ale; and "Southern Drawl," a pale lager.

Great Raft owners Andrew and Lindsay Nations say they have about 20 accounts with bars and restaurants in the Shreveport area. They plan to stay at that number for a while to make sure they can keep up with demand. Andrew Nations says they plan to start canning beer in February.
