Today’s writing beer: Stubborn German Brewing Company‘s Social Distance Party Pale Ale.
Here is what I found today that every beer and whiskey lover in St. Louis needs to know.
2nd Shift Makes A Statement
… On Sunday, San Antonio based Weathered Souls Brewing Company, announced the launch of the “Black” is Beautiful initiative, a collaborative campaign that calls on any willing brewery to participate in brewing their own version of a Stout recipe provided by Weathers Souls. Today, St. Louis’ 2nd Shift announced they were participating, with all proceeds from sales going to support Black Lives Matters.
… Important local libation news. St. Louis’ own Still630 isn’t quite ready to open yet, but they do want to share some delicious cocktails with you anyway. Here’s how it works, you can pre-order the ingredients to two cocktails, Two-Step Gin, Peach, Lime, Lemon/Lime soda ($12.00) and RallyPoint Rye, Blackberry Vanilla Shrub, Date Syrup, Mint ($16.00.
Quantities are limited so act now! Email your order to firstname.lastname@example.org. The pickup window will be 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm this Friday (June 5th). PRE-ORDER ends Wednesday (June 3rd) at 6:30pm (or when they sell out).

Support Your Local Bottle Shop
… Recently a fellow Reddit user asked about some of the best liquor stores that featured a good selection of local beers. That reminded me that if even though we want to support our local breweries, we need to think about the locally owned bottle shops as well. Each day, I’ll feature one, with a smattering of what they’re offering and links to their online stores.
