|Brewery: Piney River Brewing Company|
|Location: Bucyrus, MO|
|Name of Beer: Aux Arcs|
|Beer Style: Saison|
|Our Thoughts: Piney River has been in New Brew News a lot lately, and that's a good thing. That means that beer drinkers in Missouri have taken a shine to this small brewery from Bucyrus. This saison is dry hopped with Nelson Sauvin hops and made its debut at their 5th Aleiversary party. Look for this in 4 packs of 16 ounce cans in the near future.|
|Brewery: Charleville Vineyard and Microbrewery|
|Location: Ste. Genevieve, MO|
|Name of Beer: Irish Style Stout|
|Beer Style: Dry Stout|
Our Thoughts: Another brewery that was featured recently in New Brew News is Charleville. They're back this week with a new Irish Style Stout. Irish Dry Stouts are the most common stouts and tend to be lighter bodied with a noticeable roast character. Guinness is probably the most well known example. We'd like to sit down with a pint of each and have fun comparing the two while welcoming Charleville to St. Louis.
|Location: St. Louis, MO|
|Name of Beer: Berry Berry Tart Ale|
|Beer Style: Fruit Beer|
Our Thoughts: This beer goes to show that Schlafly continues to innovate in the St. Louis beer scene. An ale brewed with raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, lemon juice and vanilla almost seems like an overload, but we're confident Schlafly can make this work. This sounds like it would be thirst quenching on a hot St. Louis summer day. Whatever season this is released during, we're excited to indulge.
|Brewery: Public House|
|Location: St. James, MO|
|Name of Beer: Giddy Goat|
|Beer Style: Coffee Stout|
Our Thoughts: We had to include this beer based on the name alone. Public House's Revelation Stout has won three medals, so we know they can make a great stout. Making one with coffee might push us from giddy to euphoric. This beer will pair well with marshmallows roasted around a fire on a chilly autumn night. It looks like this will be a 750 ml bottle, which will be perfect for sharing.
|Location: Columbia, MO|
|Name of Beer: Cowboy Me|
|Beer Style: Black Lager|
Our Thoughts: Even since before Logboat started distributing to St. Louis we've been fans. They've shown time and time again that they make high quality beers and more importantly, they're great people. Black lagers (or schwarzbeiers) tend to be lighter bodied with roasty notes from the malt and light hop bitterness. They are also a great alternative to the standard winter beers. Black lagers aren't the most widely brewed style of beer, so we're excited to see Logboat brewing outside the box. We'll be on the hunt for this one.
