Ill Repute by 4 Hands Brewing

It’s been a while, yes, but I’m still alive. I’ve been working at Bay Cannon Brewing Company in West Tampa since they opened the first weekend in August. What a fantastic ride it’s been! I think I’ll do some posts on the brewery, just to kind of get it out there a bit more. I […]

Vanilla Option #2 by Rock Bridge Brewing

NOTE: This is another installment of my Shelfie series. However, this Shelfie beer is on shelves in Missouri. A recent beer trade for some Calusa haze netted this beer. My buddy, Niles threw this one in, and he knows me well. I do love vanilla in my stouts, when it’s done well. How well is […]

17 by Perenial Artisan Ales

They’ve only been on my radar for a couple years now because they’re quite a ways west of St. Louis, and they’ve only recently started to distribute this way toward Illinois. According to Untappd, I’ve only had a handful of beers from this brewery, and […]

BA 17 by Perennial Artisan Ales

So after trying Derivation Blend #10 at Side Project, I decided to hit up another of my favorite St. Louis breweries, Perennial Artisan Ales. Luckily, they had Barrel Aged 17 for on-site consumption so I couldn’t resist. Let’s get it on! Perennial makes a mint chocolate stout named 17. I had one bottle left but […]
