Coming back to STL

I am very excited on about this one. This is one of the first beers that got me interested in beer almost 20 years ago. I was very intrigued by it when I first started working here.
ETA looks to be around spring time.
(It has been years since they have been distributed here)
Corsendonk Abbey Brown Ale
A Classic Belgian Abbey Dubbel
Corsendonk Abbey Pale Ale
A Classic Belgian Abbey Tripel
"Corsendonk Abbey in Oud-Turnhout, Belgium was founded through the munificence of Maria van Gelre, youngest daughter of Jan III, Duke of Brabant. You may recall that Jan I (Jan Primus) is today better known as Gambrinus. The monks of Corsendonk started a brewery in 1400, which flourished until 1784 when the abbey was closed by Austrian ruler Jozef II." -- importer

Thomas Hardy’s Ale
The Legendary Vintage Ale of Dorset
"Scarce, subtle and complex, Thomas Hardy’s Ale is the beer enthusiast’s equivalent of rare cognac. Bottle-conditioned to mature in the bottle like fine wine, this old ale/barley wine will improve with age for at least 26 years (and we’re still counting!). Not for the faint of palate, especially when young and brash, maturity brings an elegance of flavors unmatched by any other beer—if you have the patience to cellar it for at least a decade." -- importer
There are some other beers associated with this importer that we might see also...
Royal Oak, Old Izaak, O'Hanlens, Old Jock, Merlin's Ale, Black Douglas, Kinmount Willie Scottish Oatmeal Stout...not sure what all we will see.
Read about the beers on the importers website.
Leave me a comment about which others you would like to see and we can see if we can get the importer to bring them to St. Louis.
