More info about the Brewery..
Six Mile Bridge, was born in 2015 out of the passion and enthusiasm of the husband and wife team, Ryan and Lindsay Sherring. Ryan, a South African native, began his brewing journey in 2012 when he founded 021 Brewing Company in Cape Town focusing on quality ales. His wife, Lindsay, a St. Louis native and avid stout enthusiast soon joined the brewery as marketing director — marrying two of her passions, marketing and beer.
After enjoying the success of 021 Brewing Company, Ryan and Lindsay moved to St. Louis to continue their passion for brewing distinctive styles of beer and founded Six Mile Bridge. Named after a small town in Ireland, the village of SixMileBridge is nestled exactly six miles between two major towns. Throughout history, the village has been a main thoroughfare where weary travelers and locals come together with new and old friends alike to share tales of their adventures over a pint of beer (or many!).
We hope that as you enjoy our beer, you savor the relationships you have and adventure out to make new ones. As the old Irish proverb goes,
“There are no such things as strangers, only friends you haven’t met yet.”

Citradelic’s namesake hop and fruit combine to jam with visions of additional hops like citrusy Mandarina Bavaria, tropical Azzaca, and fruity Galaxy for a colorful explosion that’s grounded by just a touch of malty sweetness. Bored by the status quo? Expand your palate with a pour of Citradelic. 

New Belgium Glutiny Golden Ale
Hoist your pints to the mutiny against gluten, and toast to Glutiny Golden Ale, our new uncompromised gluten-reduced beer designed for the discerning craft drinker. For this new year-round release, we dosed the beer with colorful Nugget, Goldings and Cascade hops, and then turned around and dry-hopped it again with Cascade, lending bright grapefruit and subtle herbal notes to the wash of bready-sweet malts; additions of oats adds a layer of smoothness to the mouthfeel. Finally, we used a special enzyme during the brewing process, which breaks down the gluten. The result is super sessionable, flavorful golden ale that starts sweet and finishes crisp. Ready to join the uprising? Taste the Glutiny.

New Belgium Glutiny Pale Ale
There’s an uprising in the craft beer world, a mutiny on gluten, and the movement’s invaded our brewhouse, demanding we finally brew an uncompromised gluten-reduced pale ale fit for the most adventurous hopheads. Our response? This is Glutiny! For this new year-round release, we armed the beer with a hefty dose of exotic Equinox hops, lending breezy guava, papaya and stone fruits to a wash of sweet, slightly herbal malt flavors. We then employed a special enzyme during the brewing process, which breaks down the gluten. Like any delicious pale ale, expect swift bitterness in the swallow and an assertively dry finish, just how we like it. Ready to join the uprising? Taste the Glutiny.

Classic Beer of the Week: New Belgium Fat Tire
We are featuring a "Classic" beer in our Friday night tasting when we can. So many people may have never had these beers because they are not the "new" or "hot" craft beer anymore.

New Belgium Fat Tire Amber - celebrating its 25th year
Named in honor of our co-founder's bike trip through Europe,
FAT TIRE AMBER ALE marks a turning point in the young electrical engineer's home brewing. Belgian beers use a far broader palette of ingredients (fruits, spices, esoteric yeast strains) than German or English styles. Together with co-founder Kim Jordan, they traveled around sampling their homebrews to the public. Fat Tire won fans with its sense of balance: toasty, biscuit-like malt flavors coasting in equilibrium with hoppy freshness. Fat Tire: Pairs well with people.

Guinness Brewer's Project

Guinness Original
Is the closest variant to Arthur Guinness' original stout recipe and was first introduced in Dublin around 1800's as a premium porter.  Still sold today in the UK as Guinness Original, this brew is very similar to Guinness Extra Stout.  It's hoppy, roasty and crisp with a bittersweet finish.

New GUINNESS brewing project in Dublin reveals two new porters inspired by GUINNESS brewers' diaries from 1796 and 1801

With origins in a 1796 entry in GUINNESS' brewers' diaries, GUINNESS DUBLIN PORTER was inspired by the golden age of porter in the 1800s. This was a time when porter was the working man's beer and after a long day's work in Dublin or London, GUINNESS would have been a respected choice. GUINNESS WEST INDIES PORTER is based on an 1801 diary entry for the first GUINNESS purposely brewed to maintain its freshness, on long sea voyages to the Caribbean and beyond. To guarantee the best quality upon arrival, GUINNESS brewers made a porter with more hops and a higher gravity. With their distinctive tastes, these new porters will offer beer lovers in Ireland and the UK something different and a fresh take on what’s been enjoyed for centuries.

New Sierra Nevada Beers

Sierra Nevada Beer Camp Tropical IPA....$7.99 / 6pk
Fruit-forward hops take this IPA to the tropics.
Beer Camp is the ultimate brewing experience. We invite beer fans into our brewery nearly every week to design their own beer and then we bring it to life. Each spring, we’ll feature one of our favorite collaborations from the previous year. This year’s selection features intensely aromatic hop varietals rich with the flavors of the tropics. We use Citra, Mosaic and El Dorado hops to create bright fruit-forward flavors of mango, papaya and bitter orange.

Sierra Nevada Otra Vez Gose Style...$7.99 / 6pk
With Prickly Pear and Grapefruit
Cactus adds a twist to the traditional gose style.
On our search for the perfect warm weather beer, we wanted something light bodied and thirst quenching, yet filled with complex and interesting flavors. We stumbled across the fruit of the prickly pear cactus, native to California. This tangy fruit is a great complement to the tart and refreshing traditional gose style beer. Otra Vez combines prickly pear cactus with a hint of grapefruit for a refreshing beer that will have you calling for round after round. Otra Vez!

North Coast Steller IPA - sales support Marine Mammal Research

North Coast Stellar IPA...$5.49 / 22oz
Our location, on the northern California coast, is in close proximity to the migratory path of gray whales and the southern habitat of orcas. The plight of Steller sea lions and their declining populations is an issue that resonates with us. This is also the birthplace of whale activism. In the spirit of the Mendocino Whale Wars of the late 1960s and early 70s, North Coast Brewing is pledging our support to marine mammal research conducted in coastal areas throughout the Pacific.

For every case of North Coast Steller IPA sold, North Coast Brewing makes a contribution to marine mammal research. For information on the organizations we support, please visit our website.

Like muscat, spruce tips, and pennyroyal, North Coast Steller IPA is redolent of resinous terpenes: myrcene, linalool, pinene, and geraniol. An unparalleled hop happening.

New from Unibroue

Limited release....
Unibroue La Resolution...$10.99
La Résolution is a dark ale with spicy character inspired by a recipe our brewmaster Jerry Vietz created for his friends. At 10% alcohol, its spicy caramel aroma evolves on the palate into pleasant and complex notes of toffee with reminiscence of a tasty gingerbread. The perfect balance between spicy, caramel and roasted malt flavours is complemented by a nice roundness and persistent finish.

Unibroue  Ephemere Poire....$6.49
As its name suggests, Éphémère is an ephemeral ale that comes and goes with the seasons. It was developed as a series to feature a seasonal fruit in a refreshing, lightly spiced white ale. The label depicts a fairy, an ephemeral spirit associated with fruits picked at the peak of ripeness during each harvest season. She first appeared in the spring of 2001 and has since been celebrated on a variety of seasonal fruit ales featuring apple, cranberry, blackcurrant, peach, raspberry and cherry. In 2015, Unibroue adds a new flavor to its Éphémère portfolio offering beer lovers a pear version.

New Crazy Mountain Beers

Crazy Mountain Horseshoes & Hand Grenades....$8.49 / 6pk

American ESB
When our brewmaster was first learning to brew beer, he mentioned to his instructor that he hoped his batch would turn out close to the way it was supposed to taste. The instructor told him, "Close only counts in horse shoes and hand grenades." Our American ESB showcases a complex maltiness and unique hop character. Chinook and Amarillo hops coupled with 5 different types of malt make this beer one-of-a-kind. Enjoy this ale when close just won’t cut it.

Crazy Mountain Snowcat Coffee Stout...$8.49 / 6pk

This winter brew is an ode to the colorful characters - The Midnight Marauders – that flatten snow in the wee hours, as they ascend without fear into the darkness. For them, we took some artisanal roasted local coffee and brewed it up in a stout made up of a complex blend of roasted malts. Use this ale in the AM or the PM, to get you through the winter months and don't forget to toast the snowcat drivers who craft the perfect corduroy for first tracks.

Crazy Mountain Amber Ale....$8.49 / 6pk

Crazy Mountain Amber Ale was named after a mountain on the Selvy Family's ranch in Central Colorado. "Loco Mountain" translates from Spanish to "Crazy Mountain," and this beer is crazy good. This delightfully floral American style Amber Ale displays a wonderful balance while still maintaining a profound hoppy goodness. We load this beer with a ridiculous and obscene amount of West Coast hops that are added late in the boil, resulting in a hoppy beer without any bitterness.
