BEER NAME: Macadoodles Irish Style Red Ale
STYLE: Irish Style Red Ale
ABV: 4.6%
IBU: 
BREWERY: Crown Valley Brewing & Distilling
BEER ADVOCATE RATING: 
RATE BEER RATING: 37

BREWERY COMMENTS: No Blarney – Our Irish Style Red Ale holds true to the traditional brewing techniques of the legendary red ales of Ireland. The use of five varieties of pale & roasted barley malts enhance the ale’s complex, rich flavor and reddish hue. May the luck of the Irish be with you!

drinkMObeer COMMENTS (Chris): I picked up this beer while on a recent trip to Branson from Macadoodles Fine Wine, Beer & Spirits. It’s a house beer brewed for them by the folks at Crown Valley. Red Ale is pretty straight forward, caramel and malty aroma and finishes with a bitter almost tart flavor.

6 Degrees bottle and carrier 12-29-15BEER NAME: Six Degrees Chocolate Porter
STYLE: American Porter 
ABV: 5.10%
IBU: 
BREWERY: Public House Brewing Company
BEER ADVOCATE RATING: 
RATE BEER RATING: 

BREWERY COMMENTS: There’s nothing more seasonal than knocking snow off your boots, huddling up with a blanket, and enjoying a beer with the majestic Missouri landscape in clear view. This chocolate-infused porter is the beer for that moment. Terrific chocolate notes on the nose soften the roast of this classic English style. Light a fire and sip til your hearts content

drinkMObeer COMMENTS (Andrew): I grabbed this one out of the cooler at Craft Beer Cellar Clayton and enjoyed at their small bar. This Chocolate Porter pours black and provides slight scent of delicious chocolate. The flavor is dark and earthy, with the chocolate peeking through a malty and fairly thin bodied beer.

 

sbc_hefeBEER NAME: Klassisch
STYLE: Hefeweizen 
ABV: 4.80%
IBU: 13
BREWERY: Standard Brewing Company
BEER ADVOCATE RATING: 
RATE BEER RATING: 

BREWERY COMMENTS: Our take on this traditional southern German classic is brewed true to style. Served unfiltered, this easy drinking, cloudy wheat beer will fill your mouth with a balanced combination of banana and clove flavors and has a low enough ABV you can sip away the afternoon.

drinkMObeer COMMENTS (Chris): Hello…Hefe! Definitely a true to style hefeweizen. Picked up more clove than banana, but they were both prominently featured in the Klassisch. The beer had a medium body and finishes with light spice. Overall a good hefe. Prost!

 

wintergrind-551c08d95d5d9
BEER NAME: Winter Grind
STYLE: Stout 
ABV: 6%
IBU: 18
BREWERY: Mother’s Brewing Company
BEER ADVOCATE RATING: 88
RATE BEER RATING: 95

BREWERY COMMENTS: Sip away the season with Mother’s Winter Grind. We’ve combined the rich goodness of a stout with our cold-brewed espresso blend, roasted for us by our coffee loving neighbors at the Mudhouse. The result is a wintery treat that’ll give coffee and beer lovers a reason to cheer!

drinkMObeer COMMENTS (Chris): The only time I drink coffee is when it’s in my beer…but if I could find a coffee that tastes like this beer, I may turn into a coffee drinker. Has a wonderful aroma, huge coffee flavor and a nice sweet chocolate flavor nestled into it. I’m ready for another cup. Prost!

 

beer-page-CMSBEER NAME: 4 Hands Chocolate Milk Stout
STYLE: Milk Stout 
ABV: 5.5%
IBU:  
BREWERY: 4 Hands Brewing Company
BEER ADVOCATE RATING: 88
RATE BEER RATING: 96

BREWERY COMMENTS: Our Chocolate Milk Stout pours black as the night sky with aromas of dark chocolate, chocolate malt, and more chocolate. With a firm tan head and a rich velvety mouthfeel our Chocolate Milk Stout is a perfect complement to the change of seasons.

drinkMObeer COMMENTS (Andrew): A winter-time go to for me, this easy drinking milk stout coats the mouth in smooth and luscious chocolate deliciousness akin to a melting Hershey’s kiss. Pouring dark as dark can get, the head on this bad boy sticks around as a pre-sip reminder to the beer’s robust body. Yum!

 

IMG_2533_smallBEER NAME: Apotheosis
STYLE: Saison
ABV: 5.3%
IBU: 18
BREWERY: Urban Chestnut Brewing Co. 
BEER ADVOCATE RATING: 85
RATE BEER RATING: 73

BREWERY COMMENTS: This French-style Saison was first brewed in collaboration with the fine folks at The Royale to celebrate the Feast Day of Louis IX. Named after the statue of St. Louis that sits atop Art Hill, this farmhouse ale is a tribute to our beloved city.

drinkMObeer COMMENTS (Andrew): This beer does justice to the style and finds a good home in UCBC’s Reverence Series. This straw colored beauty serves up a nice white foamy head with notes of fruity.

 

About DrinkMoBeer 2 Articles
This site is dedicated to the deliciously crafted beer that is brewed in our fine state of Missouri. Usually when beer and Missouri are mentioned together a not so small brewery nestled on the banks of the Mississippi comes to mind. To others it may be that brewery in the shadow of a square smokestack on the western side of the state. While those breweries put out some fine beer, they’re not the primary focus of what we’re working to promote on drinkMObeer.com. Not to say their beers won’t be featured on the site, but we want to focus our attention, and yours hopefully, on the small, independent brewers of Missouri. You know, the little guys, the local guys, the mom and pops of the craft beer community. So what you’ll find on drinkMObeer.com is a Missouri beer featured every day of the year. You heard that right, a beer produced in Missouri for all 365 days of 2016!. We’ll also be taking beer trips to breweries throughout the state, interviewing the brewers, shooting photos and videos, and, of course, tasting their beer and letting you know all about it. Hope you enjoy the site! If you have any questions or suggestions, just shoot us an email or connect with us on Twitter or Facebook. We’d love to hear from you!
