New Brews Coming from Missouri

First, thanks to everyone who came to our Summer Beer Festival!  You made it such a great event, selling out the tickets!  What were some of your favorites from the night?

All across Missouri, there are new breweries and brewpubs springing up, bringing some great beers to new areas of the state.  Recently, I attended a wedding (congratulations Blake and Maggie!!!) that had a few different styles of beer from Flat Branch Pub & Brewing, out of Columbia, MO - Katy Trail Pale Ale, Green Chili, American Pale Ale, and Kristalweizen.  Naturally, I sampled each.  Research purposes, you know.  Conclusion: good beer.  Obviously, the Green Chili Beer jumps out, and it leaves an impression.  It had a great chili flavor, with only a slight hint of heat.  Very nice.  The Katy Trail and American Pale Ale are both very well-crafted beers on the hoppy side, and the Kristalweizen was a good take on a wheat beer.  All very drinkable, sessionable.  It's always a pleasure to share in the fruits of our brethren breweries.  If you're in Columbia, it's definitely worth your while to visit Flat Branch.

Next week, you'll have a chance to try another brewery, this one a new one coming to the Kansas City market.  On Tuesday, June 19th, Springfield, Missouri's Mother's Brewing Company will takeover taps at The Foundry, as part of their launch into KC!  They'll have six beers available - Towhead (American Blonde), Three Blind Mice (Brown Ale), Lil’ Helper (IPA), Sandy (a "Hopped Up Wheat"), Holy Mole’ (a Brown Ale aged on cinnamon, chocolate nibs, and peppers, reminiscent of a mole sauce), and Trouble Maker (Double IPA).  I haven't had the opportunity to try the beers, but friends have raved about them, so I'll definitely be here to try them next week.

We'll have events all throughout the summer, so keep checking the blog, or coming into one of our locations, to get the latest news!
