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!
