Limited release....
Perennial Artisan Ales Violet...$11.99 / 750ml
"Violet is a Belgian-Style tripel brewed with pluots, a fruit that is a cross between a plum and an apricot.  Although Perennial likes to use local produce, for this beer and exception was made, as pluots provide a distinctive flavor both refreshing and complex.  The beer's light to medium body disguises the ABV and allows you to explore the marriage between the pluots and hops.  Violet's fruiter notes are quelled with a dry finish that lends itself nicely to light summer dishes." - Perennial

O'Fallon Kite Tail

On Sale now!

O'Fallon Kite Tail Summer Ale...$5.99 / 6pk
"This beer actually started as a homebrew recipe of Jason’s (our assistant brewer). He brewed it last year in celebration of his sister’s wedding. Jason and his brewing buddies have an Oktoberfest celebration every fall where they all brew a beer or two, then get together to drink said beer. This year, the Oktoberfest beer would also be a wedding beer. Jason wanted to brew a doppelbock (seeing as how it’s a German beer and all), but his sister tried one and quickly nixed that idea. They eventually decided on a cream ale for its smoothness and function as a good session beer.

Fast-forward a couple months to last November and a blind panel to decide what was going to replace Wheach as our new summer seasonal. Jason decided to sneak a couple of his beers (including the cream ale) into the panel. As it turns out, everyone gravitated toward his beer. Work got started not long after to scale up his recipe, and Kite Tail was born.

We think you’ll find that this beer is going to be the perfect compliment to your summer. It’s light and crisp, but finishes with a subtle tartness and fresh fruit notes. The malty sweetness is balanced extremely well by the addition of Polish hops, and at 4.5% ABV, you’ll find it incredibly easy to drink. Get it on draft or pour to a glass to enjoy a creamy, long-lasting head. In all seriousness, you just found your new go-to summer beer." - O'Fallon Blog

4 Hands Brewing Co.

Kevin Lemp of 4 Hands Brewing drawing some Bona Fide Stout from the Elijah Craig Bourbon Barrel.....

Stopped by 4 Hands Brewing Co. today and tasted the 
4 Hands Brewing Bona Fide Barrel-Aged Stout that has been ageing in a Elijah Craig 12 Year old Bourbon Barrel for almost 6 months now (since February 13, 2012).    You are going to love this one, it is ready to be bottled soon!!   Thanks again to 4 Hands and Kevin Lemp for helping us with our next project - Bourbon Barrel Aged Maple Syrup that we just put into barrel today. (watch for more details soon)

Here is the label....

4 Hands Brewing
I also got a chance to taste their new Ruby Red Grapefruit Berliner Weisse. Make sure you get down to the brewery to taste this one -- here is their website to read more.  Also saw a bunch of kegs of Contact High heading out to your favorite watering holes.  Look for it on draft now.

"Ruby Red is a grapefruit version of the original Prussia Berliner Weisse. After a 24-hour sour mash and during fermentation we will add fresh ruby red grapefruit juice. Ruby Red Prussia pours a slight pink hue with a big grapefruit punch. Aromas of grapefruit and citrus with a clean tart finish. 3.5% Alc. / Vol".

Collaboration between Alpine Beer Company and New Belgium

"Alpine might be small, but their brewing chops are mighty.  We teamed up to create this triple dry-hopped Imperial IPA bursting with Columbus, Amarillo, Centennial, and Simcoe Hops.  Consider yourself a hero for getting an an Alpine Beer outside of San Diego

Alpine Brewing does not see much distribution outside of San Diego.  They currently have 4 IPAs on RateBeer that come in with a 100 Rating -- so they know IPA!!

No reviews yet on RateBeer, in fact we are the first to show distribution on this beer.

They were going to call it Lex Lupulin, but because of Odells St. Lupulin, they decided not to.

New Stone Label...

Stone is taking freshness to the extreme.

A new label just got approved....

looks like they set up its own website and says it will first appear 
at their 16th Anniversary which is August 18th.  No indication of when it will have been bottled and how fresh it will be.  

Not sure if we will see it in St. Louis or not?
