Grenade, brewed with wheat and passion fruit, takes its name from the French word for pomegranate, which the passion fruit resembles, and which Cajun settlers used for the wild growing local fruit. Bayou Teche brew master Karlos Knott says passion fruit vines grew wild on the fences of his grandfather's farm and he recalls many days where he and his family would enjoy the fruit in the shade of a large oak tree after a long day's work. Grenade, the beer, is a lighter wheat ale with a tropical sweet and tart flavor. Grenade is now available on tap in select bars and restaurants and in stores where Bayou Teche is sold by the bottle. In a press release, Knott says, "We definitely wanted to offer this beer in bottles. That way, like us ya'll can find the shade of a large moss-drenched oak tree on a bayou nearby and enjoy a cold one."
