The team at 2nd Shift are rounding out 2017 in fine fashion, with plenty of drinking events featuring old friends and new releases on tap.
Perhaps one of their best and most popular beers is back on tap and on December 5th, released in cans. Katy is an American Brett Saison which is aged for 3 months in oak barrels with Brettanomyces Lambicus, a cool yeast that gives the beer a wonderfully pretty aroma and flavor.
The newest batch is apparently back with some Funk with some help from Missouri’s own Foeder Crafters.
Katy is back on tap! The second turn of our Foeder Katy brought back the FUNK with this batch! Thanks @FoederCrafters for making incredible vessels and helping us get Katy back to form! ? pic.twitter.com/ZkCKRYC8El

December 5th is also the debut of the first of several variants of 2nd Shifts popular Liquid Spiritual Delight. All the LSD variants will be served on draft with only one keg each, so if you’re up for a taste, make sure to save the date.
The LSD Variants
Raspberry LSD – December 5th
Coffee BA LSD – December 6th
BA LSD – December 7th
Salted Chocolate LSD – December 8
Cinnamon LSD – December 9
Maple LSD – December 9
Variants are becoming more and more popular and from my opinion making loving beer more fun. More fun for the brewers as well.
They are just something fun for us to play around with. Once we see how they go over, we may, at a future date package them in a greater quantity, said Libby Crider.
Another beer you’ll want to check out is Family Matters, which is what they call an “all brewery collab,” with all 9 employees, Steve and Libby Crider, Mike Sweeney, Mikey Manning, Jake Senn, Becca Senn, Laura Therina, Chris Alfaro & Chris Doeschot, pitching in.
It’s a non-hazy east coast style IPA dry hopped with Zythos & Centennial. It celebrates our little family and the year that we’ve been here, said Crider
