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!
