4 Hands Brewing Company | Absence Of Light

November 26, 2018 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

The saddest day of my entire beer-loving life arrived last spring when I opened the door of my old college dorm room beer fridge, and out came my only remaining bottle of 4 Hands Brewing Absence Of Light ’17. In slow motion, the bottle teetered out of the fridge, falling to its death just six inches below. I moved as fast as possible, but I could not catch the neck from slamming into the concrete floor, causing the glass to shatter, ejecting the brown, frothy goodness directly into laundry drain.  The scent of Peanut Butter Stout wafted into the air as I stared down at the brown liquid disappearing into the abyss. It was a sad day. Needless to say, I replaced that fridge. But, I was afraid I could never replace that beer — until now.

4 Hands Brewing | City Museum Pilsner

September 6, 2018 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

The inspiration for craft beer can come from anywhere: famous historical figures, inside jokes between brewers and a host of other items, serve as inspiration and backstory for the craft beers we drink. One of the nice things about the hyper-local nature of the craft beer scene is its ability to provide insight into the local area — that was the case for me with 4 Hands Brewing’s City Museum Pilsner.

Urban Chestnut Brewing Company | The Class of 2011

June 23, 2016 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

Beers are like years. There are a lot of them in the past, more are coming, and some are better than others.

There are four specific years that stand out in the annals of St. Louis’ rich beer history. 1852 is perhaps the most important, as it is the year Anheuser Busch was founded. In 1991, we saw St. Louis enter the world of locally owned craft beer with the establishment of the Schlafly Brewing Company. And in 2008, well, that’s a year that most St. Louis beer lovers would rather forget… it’s the year AB allowed itself to be bought and owned by Inbev. That was a sad year. Read More

Cooking with Beer | Beer Sriracha aka Beeracha

January 8, 2015 | 2 Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

After Christmas, I spent a lovely twelve hours in the car driving from Missouri back to Denver. To keep me sane, I brought my friend and amazing photographer, Nate Polta, along for ride. As we made our way through the incredibly exciting plains of Kansas, I convinced him to help me brainstorm recipe ideas. Nate kept proposing I make stir-fries and beef dishes, mostly likely due to his recent return from Asia. Three or four suggestions later he said, “You should make beer sriracha!” … and so I did.
