Schlafly Debuts New Frugi-Four Sampler Pack

May 15, 2017 |

Fruit or fruity beers are not for everyone. But that could be said about sours or stouts, and I let them into my life, so why not fruit beers?

So how do these popular spring and summer brews fit into my life and how can you, too, welcome them into yours? This is the question I decided to tackle for no other reason than I love exposing myself to new beers or in this case, beers that have been around but I’ve simply avoided.

Logboat Brewing Company | Snapper

May 15, 2017 |

I first discovered Logboat Brewing two years ago, about one year into their existence. 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.

Ultimate 6er | Best Beers to Hibernate with in St. Louis

November 17, 2016 |

Walking down the sidewalk last week with my son, we literally saw a squirrel with an acorn in his mouth. “He’s stocking up for the winter,” said the 12 year old. “How cool would it be to hibernate?” Wow. Hibernate. I could deal with that. Take off for a few months, do nothing but sleep, eat and drink beer. But the key to a successful hibernation is that you can’t go out. Actually I think that is the definition of hibernation.

Crown Valley Brewing | Saddlebag Imperial Stout

March 22, 2016 |

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.

In 2010, Josh & Beth Stacy and Josh & Trisha Goodridge — longtime friends — opened Rolla’s first brewpub. But it was a long, long time in the works. Like any business, there were big ups and downs on the road to the first pour.
