This year we volunteered to help out St. Louis Wine and Beer Making, a shop dedicated to helping the amateur and pro make their own brew/wine. It was a privilege to be standing next to Dave, the President of the shop and getting to know his customers more (including ourselves).
While the rain on Friday May 3, 2013 kept us cold and wet, Saturday's weather proved to be far more enjoyable and dry. We got the chance to try many, many beers and here are some of our favorites from the day's debacle!
We got a chance to interact with the bar manager of the new brewery in St. Louis, Alpha Brewing Company. Their beers were very impressive and even more so their trophy! Head downtown to check out this new brew spot close to the City Museum. A beer we liked that they were offering was their Rye Indian Pale Ale.
Blue Moon is a pretty mainstream, good beer, but they had these amazing Vintage Ales and they were absolutely incredible. They used the juices from Savignon Blanc and the Cabernet Savignon grapes to create these complex, very winey beers! Curious were we can find a bottle of each for a celebration we're having soon.
