Perennial and friends launch two new beer cocktails for June.
One thing I’ve learned in my beer journey, is there are no rules. For example there is no rule that beer has to fly solo. Think of what else you might do with that crisp, tasty ale or how about the favor punch of hazy IPA or smoothie kettle sour. Think cocktails. Beer can add body, bubbles and a frothy kick to cocktails.
Pride Vibes STL
Your brew friends at Perennial Artisan Ales and Rockwell Beer apparently agree, because next month they along with Perennial on Lockwood, Uncle Val’s Gin and Maplewood Distillery are collaborating on new project called Pride Vibes STL to benefit the LGBTQIA+ community of STL, through events, inclusion, & two really tasty beer cocktails.
The New Cocktails
Perennial’s version of Prive Vibes features a Tropical Berliner Weisse (formerly Hopfentea), now renamed Pontoon Breeze as the base beer, combined with Uncle Val’s Botanical Gin with hibiscus simple syrup. Rockwell’s cocktail will be made from Passing Clouds and Maplewood Spruce Gin.
The Back Story
Among the Perennial staff, a favorite summertime drink has been the Pontoon Breeze (formerly Hopfentea) with Botanical gin.
“It is the MOST refreshing beer cocktail,” said Sydney Brockman from Perennial. “We have a lot of gin lovers around here. When we were looking at the time frame for Pride Vibes, it all made sense instantly- we HAVE to share this cocktail with STL. Uncle Val’s is amazing and pairs with Pontoon Breeze perfectly. Perennial on Lockwood and Olive+Oak have some cocktail masters who helped us with the drink itself, as well as planning for the events.”
Where You’ll Find These Beer Cocktails
As of now, you can find the drinks at Perennial Artisan Ales, Perennial on Lockwood, Olive+Oak, Rockwell Beer Co., Small Change, Intoxicology, Taco Circus, Juniper, Golden Hoosier, Hop Shop, Stacked Burger Bar, Sanctuaria, and Layla in the Grove. They are still talking to bars and restaurants and this list is growing. Stay Tuned to social media for updates! @pridevibesstl
