Episode 473 – St. Louis, Illinois
Listener and friend Don Kasak conceptualized this show around five Illinois breweries that are practically suburbs of St. Louis, and we are more than happy to drink through a lineup from this mostly unfamiliar-to-us territory. We also can’t get over Smokey Robinson’s new album and song titles, Craig discovers that side-of-the-tongue flavor, and Ryan’s got some hot tips on pretzel investments.
Millpond Brewing & Incubator [Millstadt, IL] – Lawrence (German-style Pilsner)
Excel Brewing Company [Breese, IL] – Lefty’s Lager (Helles Lager)
Stubborn German Brewing Company [Waterloo, IL] – Stubbornfest (Märzen)
White Rooster Farmhouse Brewery [Sparta, IL] – Syllables (Foeder-aged Mixed Fermentation Saison)
The Old Bakery Beer Company [Alton, IL] – 7th Anniversary Imperial Stout (Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout w/ chocolate, coconut, caramel, and peanuts)
