BRC - news...
Emails have been sent.
I have a few people I need to did out an email.  I see some emails got kicked back.  So we will work on those. 
But most should have gotten their notice.  Thank you!

The emails and allocations were sent correctly, but I incorrectly stated that Praire was "beer only" and Merci was "overall purchases".  It was reversed, sorry.  Merci arrived first so that it was "beer only" and Prairie was "overall"

Big Beer Day!!!

Prairie Artisan Ales Barrel Aged Branson Jamboree Imperial Stout:   Exclusive to The Wine and Cheese Place in St. Louis.   This one will go partially based on Prairie Artisan Ales "regular support" and then partially based on "overall purchases"

Side Project Merci Blend #2 
Only available at Side Project and The Wine and Cheese Place.
This one will go via  "beer only".  (just found out that Side Project Noir du Fermier federal registration is done, so this one is not far behind)

We will allocate a portion out based on support of Prairie Artisan Ales "regular beers" starting from October 12 until a day or two of the beer arriving.

Prairie Artisan Ales Branson Jamboree Imperial Stout Aged In Oak Barrels

Back in Janaury of 2014 Chase Healey, co-founder and brewmaster of Prairie Artisan Ales, loaded up two barrels  (Evan Williams 10 Year old and a Buffalo Trace) from The Wine and Cheese Place to take back to Oklahoma to fill with beer.  So Chase decided to blend several barrels for this beer and make a larger batch. It is a blend of bourbon barrels along with some brandy and Madeira barrels.   He said it worked better for his system to make a bigger batch.  The beer is bottled and should be heading our way soon.   So we will be receiving about 2 barrels worth of this final blend.

Side Project Merci Blend #2 should arrive tomorrow!
Released via our BRC program.

Side Project Merci Blend #2 coming soon!!

Side Project Merci Blend #1 was our first ever beer we received from Side Project back in January of 2015, it was a blend of Saison du Ble and a 2 year old American Wild Ale.  Blend #2 is getting ready to come in a week or so.  Blend #2 is a blend of Oude Fermier and a 2 year old Missouri Wild Ale.  Cory describes it as drier and closer to a white wine in style.   We are excited and very thankful to Karen and Cory King, owners of Side Project Brewing here in St. Louis, MO.

"Merci was blended for our friend Paul Hayden at The Wine and Cheese Place in St. Louis. We would like to say "Merci" for all his support of Side Project Brewing by releasing this Blend #2, a blend of Oude Fermier and a 2 year old Missouri Wild Ale, for The Wine and Cheese Place" - back label

Side Project Noir du Fermier - Federal registration is done!
Barrel Fermented Missouri Black Saison
(we supplied a couple of red wine barrels for this one)
"Noir du Fermier is a dark farmhouse ale in which the robust yet dry malt bill is balanced with the brightness, depth and rustic character of the wild Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus found on our family's Missouri farm.  This farmhouse ale was fermented in and aged in red wine and bourbon barrels for several months before being naturally bottle conditioned in this bottle." - back label

So how much money on beer to get a special brc beer? I spent a good amount of money on beer, wine, spirits, cheese, meats, crackers, maple syrup, barrel aged vanilla, prob every single barrel whiskey you get, candy, nuts, glasses, specialty tools. I think I've covered all the bases. No the guy who comes up and drinks all the free beer on Fridays and may buy a beer has a better chance then me. It would be nice if you just stop broadcast it on every social media, then I check my inbox and no email. I just would like to know my odds I guess.
