Here is what I found today that every beer and whiskey lover in St. Louis needs to know.

New Beer This Week

… I made my first visit this weekend to Millstadt’s own Millpond Brewing and Incubator to pick up their newest beer. Help Others (ABV 7%), is a new New England IPA. Look for notes of big juicy ripe pineapple chunks, along with gooseberry and citrus, plus hints of pine in this New England IPA double dry-hopped with Cardinal and Sultana hops. For the last two years, Millpond has donated a day to brew
a beer benefiting the Josh Seidel Memorial Foundation Charity Auction (@livelikejosh_). This beer is named in honor of the foundation’s motto: WORK HARD. PLAY HARD. HELP OTHERS.

Recess Brewing Edwardsville, Il released their new  MOON RIVER! This hazy milkshake style pale ale was brewed with some awesome new hops for the brewery. Including Sabro, Huell Melon, and Mandarina Bavaria, this beer is exceptionally smooth with notes of ripe banana, citrus, and orange creamsicle. The lactose adds a TON of body and creaminess as well as a vanilla note to this easy-drinking pale ale.

… 4 Hands Brewings latest is described as an “exercise in minimalism and restraint in brewing.” Blank Lager is a super clean, light-bodied, pale lager that’s subtly dry-hopped with Citra and El Dorado to provide notes of grapefruit, lime, pear, and watermelon. Low-ABV and low-calorie, this beer is also a vehicle to showcase a series of photographs from Josh Rowan, the photographer, and artist who designs most of the brewery’s labels, showing the receding Salmon Glacier in British Columbia. Blank Lager is now available at the brewery and on store shelves!

Local Brews Get High Marks

Craft Beer & Brewing paid homage to two local beer makers this week. 2nd Shift Brewing received a tremendous review from the renowned magazine for their Imperial Milk Stout, Chico’s Revenge. This chocolatey, touch of sweet crowd favorite is currently sold out BUT will be back ???? ????? and get ready for a BA Chico’s Revenge variant ?????? ????.

… Meanwhile, Perennial Artisan Ales received honors as well, but for three big beers.


… 2nd Shift will continue their collaboration in creating a beer for the rabid soccer fans of STLFC!
