A new friend comes to Kansas City - Perennial Artisan Ales

Though the NFL may be taking the week off (unless you count the Pro Bowl, which technically counts as football, but... yeah), Beer KC never has a bye weekend. Especially when we have a special guest in town!

On Saturday, January 26th, come help us welcome Perennial Artisan Ales to Kansas City! Our friends from St. Louis will be having a launch party at The Foundry from 4-6 pm, with Perennial owner and brewmaster Phil Wymore on hand. Phil will be around drinking some of his fine beers and mingling, available to talk about the beer, the brewery, or anything else that might come up. 

There will be four of their beers on tap - Hommel Bier, Saison de Lis, Aria, and Abraxas. Aria is the only one of the four I haven't tried, but if it's anything like the other three I'll want to have all of it. It's a Belgian Pale Ale with Brettanomyces. Oh my that sounds wonderful. The Hommel Bier is a dry-hopped Belgian Pale Ale, Saison de Lis is a saison with chamomile, and Abraxas is a big stout, with a Mexican twist of Ancho chilies, cinnamon sticks, cocoa nibs, and vanilla beans. And if all of those somehow aren't enough for you, we'll be offering a special flight of the beers with a cheese pairing for each for $18. So you can get the flight with the pairings, or you can order each beer as a full or 6 oz pour. Or a combination thereof. AND chat with the founder of the brewery. 

So that's Saturday. Sunday, why not take it easy with brunch at McCoy's or Beer Kitchen? That night, don't forget to tune to Food Network at 10 pm to watch KC's own Celina Tio as she takes on Michael Symon on Iron Chef America! Then Monday, head to Beer Kitchen for the next beer dinner, featuring Chef Tio. Sounds like the weekend is pretty much set.
