I first discovered Logboat Brewing two-and-half years ago, about one year into their existence. If memory serves it was at the Centennial Beer Festival in St. Louis and I walked away after sampling “Snapper” thinking it was one of the finest IPA’s I’d had in a long time. I made a mental note to remember that something very exciting was going on in Columbia, Missouri.
And that excitement continues into the current year.
As for the beer, brewer Judson Ball says “We have several barrel aged beers planned to be released in the next couple months, as well as several collaborations that should be interesting.”
The first release of 2018 will be the Great American Beer Festival Gold Medal winner Bear Hair Belgian Blonde. Bear Hair pours a hazy, straw-colored hue. The yeast provides light, refreshing citrus characteristics with a spicy finish.
Also in 2018, Logboat will get even more creative by brewing new beer that they’ve never tried before.
“We have several beers coming our in 2018 that we have never done before. We are always looking to diversify our portfolio as well as push our team to create new unique and delicious offerings,” said Ball. But just what those beers will be remains, under wraps. “We will also have a really fun beer coming out for our 4-year anniversary party. Stay tuned!”
