|Brewery: Public House|
|Location: St. James, MO|
|Name of Beer: Traminette Hefeweizen|
|Beer Style: Hefeweizen|
Our Thoughts: This new beer from Public House will appeal to both the wine and beer enthusiast. The traminette grape is a Gewurtraminer hybrid that produces flavors of apricot, honey and melons. Add these to the characteristic banana, clove and bubblegum flavors of a traditional hefeweizen and you've got a complex, yet deliciously refreshing beer. Look for this on tap at your favorite watering hole in the near future.

|Beer Style: Oak Aged Belgian Style Ale|
Our Thoughts: If you miss being able to get bottles of Hommel Bier from Perennial Artisan Ales, have we got good news for you. Perennial has taken their flagship and upped the ante. Aged six months in oak puncheons with two strains of Brettanomyces and dry hopped with Simcoe, Mosaic and Mt. Hood hops, this will elevate a beloved favorite and be a warm welcome back for Hommel Bier.

|Name of Beer: Tequila Barrel Lime Gose|
|Beer Style: Gose|
Our Thoughts: Brewers are increasingly turning to tequila barrels to age their beers in. While usually harder to obtain, they can add flavors to their choice of base beers that other spirit barrels cannot. In this particular case, Boulevard has chosen a gose. This beer's characteristic sour citrus tartness will compliment the peppery, fruity spiciness from the tequila barrels. Sounds like a cocktail in a beer glass to us. This is a beer that will make you forget the harsh Missouri winter and would best be enjoyed on a beach.
