Joleen and Brian Durham founded Piney River Brewing Company on their farm in South Central Missouri in 2010. Their award winning brewery is dedicated to making distinctive craft beers that celebrate the Ozarks.
Piney River Ale Missouri Mule IPA...$8.99 (4pk 16oz)
Missouri mules hauled hundreds of wagons across the West and packed supplies in World Wars I & II. For decades, mules were also the most reliable Ozark farm hands. Like a Missouri mule, you can rely on our handcrafted India Pale Ale. This IPA packs a hop explosion that will not let you down.
Piney River Brewing Sweet Potato Ale...$8.99 (4pk 16oz)
The sweet potato has long been a staple of American gardens and pantries. After harvest the sweet potato provides diverse culinary options. On the Piney River, we use roasted sweet potatoes in our handcrafted Sweet Potato Ale, inspired by our favorite sweet potato comfort food—the sweet potato pie.
Piney River Brewing Old Tom Porter...$8.99 (4pk 16oz)
Dense black beard, brilliant plumage, reverberating gobble--Old Tom is notorious for haunting the Ozark hills. He's a prize gobbler with the wisdom to stay just out of reach. Our handcrafted porter is also memorable, but it's one Old Tom that won't get away.
Piney River Brewing Black Walnut Wheat...$8.99 (4pk 16oz)
Buckets, burlap bags and pickup truck beds are filled with black walnuts each fall in the Ozarks. The rich and lively flavor of the wild, hand-harvested black walnut is a renowned flavor of the region. We're proud to continue celebrating local flavor and tradition with our handcrafted Black Walnut Wheat Ale.
Piney River Brewing Float Trip Ale...$8.99 (4pk 16oz)
A float trip is the quintessential Ozark experience. A canoe, kayak, raft or tube and a pristine spring-fed Missouri stream creates a lasting memory of our wild and beautiful outdoors. Our hand-crafted blonde ale is the perfect accompaniment to your day on the river or to simply bring back float trip memories.
Why We Can
As a new brewery with the plans to package our beer for distribution, we were faced immediately with a decision of bottling or canning our beer. We were most familiar with bottled craft beer; but thanks to some innovative breweries in the US, craft beer in cans was not a completely foreign idea.
Since we also care a lot about our great outdoors, we are conscientious that an aluminum can is easily recyclable. Over 50% of aluminum cans are recycled after they are emptied. Aluminum cans are made from recycled metal, and they weigh much less, too, further reducing the environmental impact of the can because they take less energy to ship.
One of the things we love about the Ozarks are the many outdoor activities—fishing, canoeing, floating, hiking, biking, trail riding, camping, and the list goes on! The thought of crafting a beer that could be enjoyed in any of the aforementioned settings was one we could not ignore. We knew that we wanted to put our craft beer in cans; as each of our beer cans says, “Pack it in. Pack it out. Enjoy nature.” Piney pints are like a mini-keg—they are going to provide the closest possible taste of draft beer to you when you are drinking it. Here are some things to keep in mind:
An aluminum can provides 100% protection from harmful UV rays of the sun which breaks down the quality of beer.
Very little oxygen is allowed in the beer during the canning process, and the sealed lid prevents any oxygen from penetrating the beer inside the can.
Today’s aluminum cans have a protective layer between the can and the beer, preventing any off flavors in your canned beer.
For ultimate flavor, aroma and enjoyment, pour one of our perfectly preserved pints into a glass.
Piney River Beer is canned in 16-ounce pint cans. When you crack open one of our cans to pour into a glass, you will truly have a pint, or, as we like to say a “Piney pint”. With craft beer in a can you no longer have to sacrifice great taste for convenience. At Piney River Brewing we want you to have the time of your life when you’re enjoying our Ozarks!
