SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Red River Brewing Co. announced Thursday that it has begun bottling and distributing its beer to retailers.

The brewery at 1200 Marshall St. in downtown Shreveport says bottles of Red River beer are available now in specialty shops throughout Shreveport-Bossier.

Red River Brewing says customers can expect red, black and gold bottles to appear on store shelves.The brewery says each color pays homage to a different aspect of the community. Red honors the Red River, black honors the local oil industry and gold symbolizes the beer Red River Brewing serves to the community.

Red River Beer is available in 12 oz bottles in six packs and cases.

The brewery opened its long-anticipated taproom in April. The building was nothing more than an empty warehouse in September. Now it's filled with enough tanks to brew thousands of gallons of beer a year.

Red River Brewing has 7 craft beers on tap. The selection is expected to expand over the next several months.
