The Redneck Riviera Brewing Project (RRBP) grew out of a love for handcrafted beers, the creative process of brewing those beers, and the joy of sharing those beers with friends. RRBP was started by two friends, Tim Roberts and Tim Moore, following a life-changing trip to Sierra Nevadas annual Beer Camp. Upon their return, Goat Lips hosted a release party for the beer they created while at Sierra Nevada, "Raiders of the Last Hops." The turn out for this event was so great that conversations with Larry (The Head Goat) about adding a brewing operation to Goat Lips.
3 years later, their dream came a reality. A lot of lessons were learned along the way and we picked up some much needed help in the form of our Co-Brewmaster, Brock Whitfield, but we area now moving for steam ahead, brewing beers we love to drink and share with all of our friends that walk through the doors at Goat Lips!
Not quite an IPA and not quite a red ale, the #58 is in a genre all its own. The recipe for this beer originated from Head Brewer Tim Robert’s trip to Sierra Nevada Beer Camp, where he dreamed up the brew’s complex malt bill and outrageous late-addition hop schedule. This malty, bitter, floral brew is not for the faint of heart!
Our Sea Oat pale ale combines the floral, citrusy flavors of American hops with the smooth creamy mouthfeel of oatmeal. The added body gives a new dimension to the hop flavor, and a unique twist to the pale ale style.
This rich, malty amber ale is anything but boring! Hints of caramel, toasted nuts, and biscuity malt are in perfect balance with the fresh, crisp, hoppy finish. Find out why this brew is as sought after as the Golden Fleece!
The Crescent City has brought us some great things- Zydeco, beignets, and Cajun food to name a few- so we wanted to pay tribute with a beer as smooth and exotic as the Big Easy itself. We’ve loaded it with coffee and chicory straight from New Orleans, and added cold-steeped chocolate malt and roasted barley to give it its pitch black color. It’s a tip of our hat to the Mardi Gras City. Beignets not included.
We here at RRBP think that Sweet Potatoes are a vastly underused tuber. We love sweet potato casseroles, sweet potato fries… but why isn’t there a sweet potato beer? Naturally, we had to intervene. We start with a rich, malty amber ale and then add 42 pounds of sweet potatoes, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice. It’s about as close as you can get to having sweet potato pie in a glass!
The Shovelbum Ale is our twist on a traditional cream ale. This beer was handcrafted with hot Florida summers in mind and in honor of the numerous Archaeologists (Shovel Bums) that hang out at Goat Lips- it’s as light, crisp, and sessionable as an lager, but bursting with citrusy American hop flavor. It’s a favorite of craft beer newbies and connoisseurs alike.
