|Brewery: Good News|
|Location: O'Fallon, MO|
|Name of Beer: Belgian Style Witte|
|Beer Style: Ale With Coriander and Orange Peel|
Our Thoughts: If you're a beer lover living in O' Fallon, rejoice! You've got Good News coming your way. Founded by three home brewers, this new brewpub, opening this summer, will slake your thirst with quality brews and will fill your belly with wood fired pizzas. One of their first beers looks to be a Belgian Style Witte. These beers are usually cloudy in appearance with a slight twang from the wheat and spicy notes from the coriander. In short, they're perfectly refreshing and a great way to wash down a slice of pizza. Check out Good News' social media feeds to keep up on their progress and in the meantime, go out and spread the good news!
|Brewery: Torn Label|
|Location: Kansas City, MO|
|Name of Beer: Quadtucky|
|Beer Style: Barrel Aged Quadrupel|
Our Thoughts: Last week we were honored to feature Torn Label's Rude Awakening, a barleywine aged in Tom's Town spirit barrels. If that wasn't enough for you, wait 'til you get a load of this. Torn Label is bringing the best of Belgium and Kentucky together with Quadtucky, a Belgian style quadruple aged in bourbon barrels with guajillo peppers added. Guajillo peppers are one of the most popular dried chilies in Mexico and are commonly used in traditional mole sauces. They add a mild sweetness, with smoky cranberry flavors being prominent. Mix that in with the caramel, dark fruit, vanilla, bourbon and oak flavors that will surely be present and you get a marriage made in heaven. Torn Label is uniting the world, one beer at a time.
|Location: Raytown, MO|
|Name of Beer: Scythe and Stave|
|Beer Style: Barrel Aged Rye Saison|
Our Thoughts: Crane just dropped a bomb that puts all of the Independence Day fireworks displays to shame. Scythe and Stave is a saison that has had rye added to it and has been aged for eight months in bourbon barrels from J. Rieger and Co, a local Kansas City distillery. If that wasn't enough, they used a mixed culture fermentation to up the acidity and funk! We love Crane's creativity and their ability to think outside of the box. This is another example of Crane taking a classic old world style and turning it on its head to produce something jaw dropping. 750 ml bottles of this will not last long!
