In recent years, many breweries have caught cease and desist letters from corporations like fly balls in center field. Cartoon characters Bart Simpson, Cap N Crunch, as well as the restaurant In-N-Out have somehow made it onto trendy IPA cans across America.

If memory serves, it was the Centennial Beer Festival in St. Louis and I walked away after sampling Snapper thinking it was one of finest IPAs I’d had in long time. I made a mental note to remember that something very exciting was going on in Columbia, Missouri with this new brewery “LongBoat.”
Soon, I was bringing home Snapper as my go-to IPA as well as its American cousin Lookout. After a few closer looks at the cans, I finally realized they were not Longboat but Logboat and after a good chuckle at myself, I knew I had found something special.
Alchemist brings more Heady Topper to Vermont, Left Hand makes its way into Wyoming, and Governor Jay Nixon expands growler sales in Missouri. This is just a taste of the craft beers news this week, but why have a taste when you could have the whole glass? Read on to catch all of the details in this edition of the Weekly Growler Fill.
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.
You want the beer news, we’ve packaged it up nicely for you. Bell’s is headed to the south, the BA updates the Beer & Food course, and a craft beer battle wages on in Missouri. Keep reading for the details in this edition of the Weekly Growler Fill.

We introduce you to the Six Degrees Chocolate Porter from Public House Brewing Company, located near St. Louis in Rolla, Missouri.
Like any Public House beer, Six Degrees Chocolate Porter was created based on the company philosophy focusing on creating …
You know that guy from college that was, like, a champion beer drinker? You know, the guy who, no matter how you trained, prepared, or strategized, could single-handedly win Beer Olympics on his own – who you watched in awe as he made his way through a case of Natty completely unfazed?
