Six Row Goes to Kansas City and Points In Between

We are thrilled to announce that by mid-January of 2012, our craft beers will now be distributed in the Kansas City, Columbia, and Jefferson City areas of Missouri.

We have signed distribution contracts with North Kansas City Beverage Company in the west part of the state, and N. H. Scheppers Distributing Company in central Missouri. Both companies are distributors of Anheuser Busch products in their areas.

Until recently, Six Row products have been available only on-tap at numerous locations in St. Louis and the surrounding area, and at the brewpub in mid-town St. Louis. We began bottling in November, 2011, and several of our craft beers are now available at a growing number of retail outlets in Missouri and Illinois.

Initially, North Kansas City Beverage Company and N. H. Scheppers Distributing Company will carry Six Row’s distinctive “Whale”, Double IPA, and Porter styles in 1/2 barrels, 1/6 barrels, and 22 oz. bottles.

N. H. Scheppers Distributing Company serves Boone, Cole, Osage, Moniteau, Callaway, Montgomery, Gasconade, Warren, Franklin, Crawford, and Washington counties in Missouri. North Kansas City Beverage Company distributes to Jackson, Clay, Platte, Ray, and Cass counties.

Six Row President, Mike Rami, said, “Our new relationship with these two distributors is a very big step for our company. We are now working with five prominent distributors in Illinois and Missouri, and our reach will soon stretch from Effingham, Illinois to Kansas City, Missouri. It’s exciting to see the enthusiasm craft beer lovers are showing for our products. We will continue brewing quality beers that will help us stand out in today’s competitive craft beer market.”

Now Dogs Can Like Six Row Too

After we brew a batch of delicious Double IPA or Porter or any of our other styles, we always have spent grain left over in the mash-kettle that we need to get rid of.

Soon after we opened for business, we partnered with a local farmer who comes and picks up the grain and uses it as a supplement to feed his livestock as the grains are high in protein and vitamins for animals. But since we've expanded and we are brewing a lot more than we have in the past, we have more spent grain than the farmer needs, so we needed another solution that would ideally be environmentally friendly.

Our head brewer, Evan, had an idea that maybe we could make the grain into dog biscuits for our pooches.  So our Special Events Manager, Julie Rami, took a shot at it.  Her concoction is basically the grain plus flour, peanut butter, and eggs.  She baked them for a few hours to dry them up and then they were ready for our very discerning food critic, Buddy, to try out.

"The flavor profiles were spot-on."

He. Loved. Them.

He may have even liked them more than when someone spills gravy on the floor.  On a scale of one to ten Tail Wags, Buddy gave the Beer Biscuits a 47, which is very high praise.  Seeing a squirrel usually only rates a 35 on the Tail Wag scale.

The problem is that we don't want Buddy to explode from eating so many Beer Biscuits, so we've decided to make these tasty treats available to our customers and their four-legged best friends.

We now have them on sale at the brewpub for the bargain price of 60 cents each.

So as you are enjoying your Six Row brew, think about spreading some cheer to your pooch.  They should be able to enjoy Six Row too.

Happy Birthday To Us

Six Row Brewing Company is turning 2 years old, and like most 2-year-olds, we want to have a big party with all our friends, lots of yummy treats and cake.

Unlike most 2-years-olds, we actually like sharing our cool stuff (and we're a little less whiny). We are so excited to turn the corner into the terrible twos, that we'd like to invite one and all to join us for a two-day blowout at our Plant No.1 Brewpub at 3690 Forest Park Ave. in St. Louis on Friday and Saturday, December 2nd and 3rd.

The party will feature several casks, small batches of unique beer, the return of some beer styles we've tapped throughout the year, our new anniversary beer, and live music. Oh, and pancakes, because what 2-year-old doesn't love pancakes?

Note that there will be several hours on Friday night when you'll be able to go home, get some sleep, shower, shave, check in with your parole officer, walk the dog, etc., otherwise, you should pretty much plan on being around for all of this 2-day SixRowapalooza so as not to miss a minute of the fun, not to mention the beer.

We should begin by mentioning that all weekend our eight regular taps will be pouring:
- Whale
- Honey Weizen
- Porter
- Double IPA
- Vanilla Porter
- Brown Ale
- Fresh Hop Extra Pale Ale
- Plant No. 1 Pre-Prohibition Pilsner (it's back!)

The super, special, happy fun stuff starts Friday Dec. 2nd at 5PM. Punch the clock, cash your paycheck and head straight to Six Row.

At 5:00 we'll be tapping...

  • Our new 2nd Anniversary Beer, Killer Whale. It's Whale (our flagship wheat-pale ale hybrid) with a whole bunch more teeth. We'll be pouring it all weekend, and into the holiday season.
  • The first of two Baumann's Bacon Porter Casks. Yeah, that's right, more pig in the Porter. Once again Baumann's Fine Meats in Brentwood has hooked us up solid, and this time we've got a total of two pounds of three different types of lean, custom-smoked bacon soaking in a cask of our Porter. If you like your Porter salty and smoky, or (maybe more to the point) if you like your bacon saturated with beer, have a pint and squeal with delight.
  • Reserved kegs of our Centennial Rye and Black IPA styles. These are the last of these beers this year. We'll tap 'em and let 'em flow all weekend until they run out.

Then at 7PM on Friday, The Bob & Perry Review and the Original Mojos will perform several hours of fun, live classic rock. The last time they played here, there was a group hallucination of a seven-foot dancing Whale.

At midnight on Friday Six Row closes for the evening. Get some rest, and we'll see you Saturday morning, because...

We're opening at 10AM on Saturday, December 3rd for brunch. Start your day off right: in a bar. In addition to some great breakfast dishes from our kitchen (did we mention the pancakes?), when we open we'll be tapping and serving...

  • A cask of Chocolate Milk Breakfast Porter - our Porter with serious amounts of cocoa and lactose added, for a rich, sumptuous accompaniment to eggs, sausage, and pancakes.
  • The last 6th barrel of our Cream Ale. Yes, it's for breakfast. You may doubt, but try it out. Goes good with... well... pancakes.

The fun rolls on at 3PM on Saturday when we'll be tapping...

  • The second cask of Baumann's Bacon Porter. Two pounds of Baumann's custom smoked bacon in this piggy too. Squeal in delight a second time.
  • A small batch of Belgian Double IPA. We fermented a 6th-barrel's worth of our popular Double IPA with Belgian Trappist yeast. Yum.

Are we done yet? Not remotely.

You fell victim to one of the classic blunders - The most famous of which is "never get involved in a land war in Asia" -
but only slightly less well-known is this: "Never assume Six Row is done celebrating when their birthday rolls around!" Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

Where was I? Right... more beer tappings. On Saturday at 7PM we'll be tapping...
  • A cask of our new Brown Ale, dry-hopped with rich, earthy Summit hops.
  • A small batch of Imperial Milk Stout. We've got just 5 gallons of this really big, really sweet, really rich milk stout, which will taste just dandy with dish of gooey butter cake (at this point we probably won't be serving pancakes any more, but then again, you never know).
Of course, with this being a birthday party and all, at some point in the afternoon/evening, there will be cake. We're two years old and we want cake. (If we are not too full of pancakes.)B

Alas, all good things must come to an end, and our good thing ends midnight on Saturday. But don't forget to stop in for lunch on Monday, December 5, our actual birthday...

Six Row to be Available in Bottles

Up until now, customers who wanted to enjoy our beer were limited to purchasing it on tap or in a growler for home consumption. Now we can an add a third option for those who would like to take our beer home.

Beginning tomorrow, Friday, November 12th, we will be bottling a limited amount of our Whale style beer in 22 oz. bombers for the first time.

At this point, the process is more manual than we would like it, so quantities will be limited at first, but the bottles of Whale will be sold at the Old Plant No. 1 Pub for $5 each as take-out only. We expect the first bottles to be available as soon as Friday evening.

The plans to bottle more quantity and more styles is going forward and we hope to start making styles like our Double IPA and Porter available in the near future.

We are very excited about this new step we are taking and we hope you enjoy taking a Whale home to enjoy on your own time. Cheers!

Semi-New Style Release: Vanilla Porter

Remember when you tasted the Vanilla Porter from one of our cask nights and wished that it was available more often? Well, you're in luck.

Or remember when you would get to Six Row to try the Vanilla Porter cask that everyone on Twitter was raving about, but you found it was gone already and you wished we had more of it? You are also in luck.

Or remember when you tasted the Vanilla Porter and you thought it was just OK, but you really preferred to go with a Double IPA or a Whale? Well, then this doesn't matter that much to you, but the good news is that we still have lots of DIPA and Whale for you!

We can't make EVERYONE happy with a single style release, but we think the large batch of our Vanilla Porter will please a lot of you, so that's exactly what we will be doing on Thursday, November 10th at 4pm.

After much success with adding vanilla beans to casks of our original Porter, we've produced a full tank of this wonderful beer. It's the Porter you already know and love, with a healthy dose of whole vanilla beans added to the fermenter. It's as simple and delicious as that, and starts pouring at 4PM.

This is just one of a number of releases we have coming up soon, so stay tuned here (or our Facebook page or on Twitter or on our homepage). Cheers!

Six Row Has a New Beer Style and We're Giving Stuff Away Again

We have just now tapped the batch of our newest style, the Plant No. 1 Pre-Prohibition Pilsner.

We developed this beer to celebrate the heritage of the site of our brewery and Old Plant No.1 Pub and to coincide with the premiere of Ken Burns's Prohibition documentary on PBS. Stop in and enjoy the style that is the grandfather of today's mega-lagers!

Six Row Pre-Prohibition Pilsner is made with a large percentage of our namesake six row barley malt and corn. You can read more about it from Evan Benn here and here. It will be available at the discounted rate of $4/pint until the documentary concludes on Tuesday, October 4th.

We'll air Parts 2 and 3 of Burns' documentary at our Old Plant No. 1 Pub on Monday, October 3rd and Tuesday, October 4th at 7pm for no cover charge.

We're so excited about seeing Ken Burns' take on such a controversial time in our country's history while imbibing our new style, we are going to have another contest! That's right! Who wants free stuff?!

We are going to give away a Prohibition gift set that includes a Ken Burns autographed Blu-Ray edition of Prohibition and a copy of the book, Last Call: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition, by Daniel Okrent, on which the series is based.

To enter you have three options, but only one entry per person will be allowed:

1) You can tweet using the hashtag #ProhibitionPilsner and tagging @sixrowbrewco
2) You can “Like” our contest post on our Facebook page
3) You can enter at the Pub by providing a business card or filling out one of our entry forms

We will be accepting entries from now until 7pm on Tuesday, October 4th. We will draw the winner at the bar at the conclusion of Part 3 of the documentary. You do not have to be present to win.

Good luck and party like it's 1933 and proibition has just been repealed.

Where There's Smoke, There's Good Beer (in this case)

We had a lot of fun this summer during the national and St. Louis versions of Craft Beer Week as we rolled out some small batches where we took some risks with flavors and methods to enhance our growing style portfolio. Some of them, like the Cream Ale and the Black IPA have returned as full batches for even more people to enjoy.

So, will our new Smoke Ale one day join the ranks of our regular rotation? Time will tell, but for now we'll just be releasing a small batch on this Thursday, September 22nd. We'll tap the batch at 4pm.

We brewed it with peat and apple-wood smoked malt, so it has a nice smoky/malty character. The English noble hops take a bit of a backseat for the malt profile, but our head brewer, Evan, likens it to a smoked English Pale Ale/Amber.

Come let us know what you think of it!

The Return of Bacon Porter

We have been having a great week at Six Row for St. Louis Craft Beer Week. We are thrilled to see the demand for local craft beer continuing to grow in St. Louis and we are proud to be a part of that.

We are capping off the week with a return of one of our favorite cask beers, the Bacon Porter. Back in June, we got a slab of bacon from our friends at Baumann's Fine Meats and the result was full of bacon-y goodness. It was so good that we thought it would be a great way to finish off Craft Beer Week in style.

So come on down as we tap the cask at 1pm.

We'll be giving away a specially designed Bacon Porter t-shirt today for our Hashtag of the Day contest for the winning tweet including the tag #BaconPorter.

Good luck and thanks again for supporting Six Row and St. Louis craft beer!

Trippel Your Pleasure, Trippel Your Fun

Rebecca Black likes to sing about Friday, Friday, but when she eventually turns 21 in eight years, she might have to change it to Friday, Friday, Friday after trying our Belgian Trippel.  (That was a long way to go for a weak joke, but it's the end of a busy week.)

The important thing to remember is that we'll be releasing a small batch of our Belgian Trippel style this afternoon at 4pm.  So what exactly is a Trippel?
Many people like the malty goodness of our Belgian Dubbel style, but the funny thing about Belgian Trippels is that it isn't just an intensified Dubbel as the name might suggest.  The Trippel will indeed have a higher ABV than the Dubbel, but it will be more yellow to gold colored and have a more spicy character than the darker malted Dubbel.
Sounds tasty doesn't it?

So in that spirit, today's Hashtag of the Day is #TrippelTasty and the winning tweet today gets a free growler to take home some of your favorite Six Row beer!  Happy Friday, Friday, Friday!

Celebrating National IPA Day with Peppercorn DIPA Cask (and a free t-shirt)

Normally, hopheads can enjoy our Double IPA style whenever they pop into our Old Plant No. 1 Pub, but today is National IPA Day.  Plus it is the middle of St. Louis Craft Beer Week.  So we had to take it up a notch.

Tonight at 4pm, we'll be tapping a cask of peppercorn-infused Double IPA, which should provide a spicy and tasty celebration of the day.

Additionally our Hashtag of the Day contest rolls forward.  Yesterday, @rtodaizh took home the $20 gift certificate for his #ViennaLager tweet.

Today, we're going to give out another t-shirt, so get your Twitter on with the hashtag #PeppercornCask.

Good luck!

Who Wants $20 Worth of Beer?

First, we'd like to congratulate @TKulasz on winning the growler yesterday as part of the #BIPAflight contest. You may be asking yourself what could be better than winning a t-shirt or a growler? How about $20 worth of Six Row beer?

Today's prize of the day is a $20 gift certificate that you can use during your next visit to Six Row.

So let's not waste any more time and get right to it. As St. Louis Craft Beer Week continues, we'll be releasing a small batch of Vienna Lager today at 4pm:
Akin to a German Oktoberfest/Marzen style, the Vienna Lager is a somewhat "unknown" Austrian amber lager style. It will have lots of nice toasted and biscuit-y notes to complement the clean and refreshing lager. It should also have a hint of noble hop character from the Hallertauer Mittelfrüher hops that we used.
The Hashtag of the Day is #ViennaLager so head on over to Twitter and start winning that gift certificate! (Here is how!)

Good luck!

Tuesday's Six Row Hashtag of the Day

Thanks to everyone who participated in our Hashtag of the Day contest yesterday. The Sour Mild release was a great success and we were tapped out after about three hours. In a way, we are all winners, but in a more accurate way, @tlbarsh was the winner of the Whale of a Time t-shirt.

For our St. Louis Craft Beer Week event today, we will be serving a flight of three different Black IPA versions.

The Black IPA is actually based off the beer we made for the Schlafly Fresh Hops Festival last year. We will be releasing a large batch in the Autumn, but Evan has been debating which hops work best. So we are going to let our customers help us decide.

He's brewed three versions: one with Gelena hops, one with Summit hops, and one with Nugget hops. We'll serve all three in a flight and you can tell us which one you like best to help us decide which version will be available in the Fall. So come on in and make your choice known!

So let's get started with trying to win that growler. Be sure to tag @SixRowBrewCo and include the hashtag, #BIPAflight to enter!

Good luck, everyone!


We discovered yesterday that people with protected accounts that we don't already follow might not turn up in our Hashtag search. So if you are worried we might not see your tweet, you can comment here or on our Facebook page with your Twitter handle. Let us know you tweeted & we'll request to follow so you can enter more this week and we'll be sure to see your tweets.

Who Wants Some Free Six Row Stuff?

We're really thrilled that so many people enjoyed the release of our new Cream Ale style on Saturday. It was a great way to start off St. Louis Craft Beer Week both in our Old Plant No. 1 Pub and out in the Twitterverse.

We saw lots of people tweeting about the event. Some were sharing when the Cream Ale would be released, some were expressing excitement about getting to try it, and some were so kind as to tell everyone how much they enjoyed it once they tasted it. This all ended up being free publicity for us and we couldn't be more thankful.

But we got to thinking we should give folks a chance to get something for mentioning our beer events this week. That's only fair, right?

So we are going to give out a prize every day of St. Louis Craft Beer Week. All you have to do to enter is to send a tweet mentioning our @SixRowBrewCo Twitter handle and our Hashtag of the Day.

It's simple. We'll announce our Hashtag of the Day here on Six Row Beer Buzz and on our Facebook page each morning this week.

Today the Hashtag of the Day is #SourMildDebut since we'll be tapping a small batch of Sour Mild at 4pm today. Now you can just go ahead and Tweet out a message to your followers that includes @SixRowBrewCo and #SourMildDebut in the tweet and you'll be entered for a chance to win. The deadline to be entered into the contest will be 30 minutes before we close that day. We'll announce the randomly chosen winner the next morning and contact you via Twitter to let you know you've won.

You can enter every day if you want, but you will only be entered once per Twitter account on any given day. (So while we would love if you sent out four tweets about us on one day, you would still only be entered once for that day.)

You may be thinking, "What if I'm not feeling original. Can I just retweet someone else's message?" Yep. It's that easy.

Our first prize for Monday will be a Six Row Whale of a Time t-shirt.

We'll announce the prize of the day when we announce the Hashtag of the Day each day.

So thanks again to all those who tweeted about us for free. Now when you tweet about us, you can get free stuff! (Plus, we hope you really like the beer.)

Remember, the Hashtag of the Day is #SourMildDebut. Be sure to check back here or our Facebook page to see what the next Hashtag of the Day is!

Let's keep St. Louis Craft Beer Week rolling at Six Row!


It seems if you have a protected account and we don't already follow you, we may not see your #SourMildDebut tweets. If your account is protected and you want to make sure you are entered, you can comment here or on our Facebook page with your Twitter handle. Let us know & we'll request to follow so you can enter more this week and we'll be sure to see your tweets.

Your Guide to Six Row's St. Louis Craft Beer Week Events

If you follow us on Twitter or like us on Facebook, chances are you already know about some of the exciting St. Louis Craft Beer Week events that we've been planning. But we wanted to put together a full list of our plans for your convenience.  We try to be helpful.

Saturday, July 30 - Release large batch of our Cream Ale style

You may remember this from such Craft Beer Weeks as American Craft Beer Week, when we released a small batch. Well, folks seemed to really enjoy it so we are going to kick off St. Louis Craft Beer Week in style by bringing it back. Plus, there is more of it. If you didn't have a chance to taste it before, come on down and give the Cream Ale a try:

Brewed in the same manner as an American Lager or a Kölsch, this ale style is light, dry, and perfect for hot summer weather. Our namesake “six row barley” is the primary influence in this brew, giving it the characteristic “grainy” aromas and light straw color. A long, cool, fermentation, followed by cold aging helps to create the clean, dry finish. A small amount of hops at the end of the boil lends slight herbal and grassy notes to finish off this perfect “lawnmower” beer.
(ABV: 4.70%, Bitterness Units: 17 IBUs, Color: 3.3 SRM, Original Gravity: 10.43 degrees Plato)
Monday, August 1 - Release small batch of Sour Mild style

Our head brewer, Evan, likes to describe the Sour Mild as a bit of a wild card. Imagine a traditional Mild Ale (which is kind of like a Brown Ale) that is a malty and mild "session" beer, but with some added sour and tart notes. We brewed it in the traditional manner with Fuggle hops, but with a sour twist.  We're not entirely sure how sour it will be yet, but we are sure it will be different and interesting.  We only did a small batch, so get it while it lasts.

Tuesday, August 2 - Black IPA Flight

The Black IPA is actually based off the beer we made for the Schlafly Fresh Hops Festival last year. We will be releasing a large batch in the Autumn, but Evan has been debating which hops work best. So we are going to let our customers help us decide.

He's brewed three versions: one with Gelena hops, one with Summit hops, and one with Nugget hops.  We'll serve all three in a flight and you can tell us which one you like best to help us decide which version will be available in the Fall. So come on in and make your choice known!

Wednesday, August 3 - Release small batch of Vienna Lager style

Akin to a German Oktoberfest/Marzen style, the Vienna Lager is a somewhat "unknown" Austrian amber lager style. It will have lots of nice toasted and biscuit-y notes to complement the clean and refreshing lager.  It should also have a hint of noble hop character from the Hallertauer Mittelfrüher hops that we used.

Thursday, August 4 - Cask tapping of Peppercorn DIPA

Our August cask tapping will feature our famous Double IPA infused with peppercorns for a unique take on our classic style.

Friday, August 5 - Release small batch of Belgian Trippel

Many people like the malty goodness of our Belgian Dubbel style, but the funny thing about Belgian Trippels is that it isn't just an intensified Dubbel as the name might suggest.  The Trippel will indeed have a higher ABV than the Dubbel, but it will be more yellow to gold colored and have a more spicy character than the darker malted Dubbel.

Saturday, August 6 - Cask tapping of Bacon Porter

We had such a great response to the Bacon infused Porter back in June that we got some more bacon from the good people at Baumann's and did it again to cap off St. Louis Craft Beer Week in style.

More Six Row Beer is Coming Soon!

The great thing about so many people tasting our beer and liking it is that they want more. The problem, as a small craft brewery, is that the demand can quickly outgrow our ability to provide our beer to everyone who wants it.

We are excited to announce that the first step in solving that issue is underway. We've been planning an expansion project that would allow us to brew almost four times more beer than our current capacity, and the equipment arrived a couple weekends ago!

We're very excited.  We feel like this was the delivery of a major award.
Wow! New fermenters! That's mine!

It doesn't have a compass in the stock, but it also won't shoot our eye out.
As you can see, construction is underway and we are optimistically hoping to have these up and running by mid-August. We'll post more updates and photos as we progress through the project.

Craft Beer with Lime? Yep. Craft Beer with Lime

Ah, Summer -- baseball, barbecue, and beer...with lime in it. Yeah, that's right, we're not going to sweat the big boys for putting lime in their beer. We just don't think they should be the only kids in town doing it.

That's why we at Six Row Brewing are going to take a cask of our Centennial Rye - a fine, crisp, mildly tart summer beer in its own right - and add some lime peel to it, for an additional zesty kick.

Come on down to our brewpub at 3690 Forest Park Ave. on Thursday, July 7th, for a fresh, summery pint of Lime Rye, and join us in fond reveries of fireworks, float trips and fun. We'll tap the cask at 5:00 pm.

Your beer with lime no longer needs to come in a clear bottle.

Six Row To Go Whole Hog

Well... maybe not the whole hog, but a couple pounds of the belly, anyhow. Specifically, the cured and smoked part that most normal folks call bacon.

As most of the carnivorous world can attest, there are few good things that can't be made better by adding bacon, and we believe beer is no exception.  

To prove that point, we're going to fill a sixth of a hogshead with our fine Robust Porter, cook up a small slab of bacon that Baumann's Fine Meats is preparing just for us, and poke a sack of that pig into the cask to soak for a spell.  We plan to tap it at 5PM on Thursday, June 2nd.  

Come on down to Six Row (3690 Forest Park Ave.) that evening and it will be our pleasure to pull you a pint of Porked Porter, and maybe engage you with a few awful puns. 

We'll also be featuring some special bacon-centric food items in addition to the items on our new and improved menu that evening, so all in all it should be a strange, slightly smoky, and most definitely un-kosher good time.

(by Joe Esser)
