Bur Oak brings back Cooper’s Landing IPA

Beer Of The Week

Sometimes I think the almighty beer gods, that craft beer was not a ‘thing’ when I was in college from 1986 to 1990.  So, my hat is off to all University of Missouri students, who are of age and enjoy a brew or two while studying. Because with a brewery like Bur Oak in town, I’m not sure what my future would have looked like.

Bur Oak Brewing Company, opened in late May 2014 and became Columbia staple, as well as a frequent guest at many St. Louis beer festival events. Bur Oak Brewing’s business continues to grow their footprint, which now reaches into five states currently, serving Missouri, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas & Wisconsin.

Today, Bur Oak announced the return of Cooper’s Landing IPA.

This beer creates a tug of war between the citrus and fruity notes of Ekuanot hops battling with the rich sweet undertones of caramel 60 malt .  This copper-colored IPA ends with a smooth finish where the only winners in this war are your taste buds. 5.6 % ABV and 40 IBUs.

Lily Cocktails Are Back!

Back and ready for the warmth of summer, Lily is a smooth and fruity cream ale. Flavors of orange and raspberry give this beer a distinct sweetness, and some have compared the taste to that of an orange dreamsicle. A soft finish rounds out this refreshing fruit ale made for the long days and warm nights of summer.

Its sweet character also makes this beer a great base for fruity cocktails. With that in mind, Bur Oak has come up with a few well-crafted recipes to spice up your glass!

The Rummy

The Rummy is light, refreshing, and easy to drink. The grapefruit flavor of the soda mixes perfectly with Lily’s fruity character and is topped off with a light fizz.

In a 16oz glass combine:

  • ¾ Lily Ale
  • ¼ Excel Brewing Company Grapefruit Soda
  • Shot of gin
  • Garnish with an orange slice


This malty twist on a mimosa accentuates Lily’s citrus flavor. Raspberries add just the right amount of sweet with a slight kick to top it all off.

In a 16oz glass combine:

  • One can of Lily Ale
  • Orange juice
  • Shot of vodka (we prefer Dogmaster Distillery Vodka)
  • Muddled raspberry
  • Pour over ice

Lily at Sunrise

The grenadine gives this cocktail a deep orange color reminiscent of, you guessed it, a sunrise. Lily at Sunrise is fizzy with a slight tartness.

In a 16oz glass combine:

  • ¾ of Lily Ale
  • Shot of London dry gin
  • 3-4 dashes aromatic bitters
  • 1.5 Tbsp grenadine
  • Garnish with a cherry and orange slice

This is also the last week to purchase beer at the downtown tent in Columbia,  so swing by while you still can or Order online or call 573-814-2178 and make a roadtrip out of it.
