How far would you drive to drink really good beer? That is the question I asked myself as I took to the road, driving the 80 miles south of St. Louis, Missouri to visit one of the state’s best brewing companies.
We’re excited to announce that we partnered with Drink 314 and DrinkMoBeer.com to bring you this week’s St. Louis-themed Ultimate 6er! If you’ve been to St. Louis you know them as the home of the arch, mouth-watering BBQ, the loop, and – of course – the Cardinals. But this city is home to something else as well: Amazing beer that you need to try.
There’s an ongoing debate on pumpkin beers here at PorchDrinking that you can read all about here. Should they be released in the fall or is the practice of getting them on shelves in August acceptable? The big box retailers put their holiday merch out in October and Halloween candy out in what seems like August. Should craft beer be following their lead? If you’re on the fence, get your paws on a bottle of Crown Valley Brewing Imperial Pumpkin Smash Stout. And find yourself firmly in the Summer pumpkin camp.
