The University of New Orleans and Second Line Brewing have joined forces to brew the new Privateer Ale, the officially licensed beer of the University.
Brewed with Mosaic and Idaho 7 hops, the new craft beer's 4.3% alcohol by volume and 15 international bitterness units equip the golden ale with a light, refreshing taste to fight the summer's oppressive humidity.
"We're really excited about giving our alumni an opportunity to enjoy a delicious local craft beer and support their alma mater in the process," said UNO President John Nicklow. "We have more than 47,000 alumni in metro New Orleans and I'm sure they'll be UNO Proud to drink Privateer Ale."
Second Line Brewing is a private craft brewery in Mid City known for its production of beers such as Batture Blonde Ale and A Saison Named Desire.
You can find Privateer Ale on campus at The Sandbar inside The Cove and the UNO Lakefront Arena. The Balcony Bar & Café, Katie's Restaurant & Bar, Red Door, 504 Craft Beer Reserve, Craft Beer Cellar, Elio's Wine Warehouse, Homegrown Pizza, Lakeside Country Club and a few locations of Breaux Mart also sell the beer.
