mattingly_84x128.jpgThe Mattingly Brewing Company may now be producing full scale productions of beer, but that doesn’t stop them from showing off what’s yet to come. Tonight is the night many of us have been waiting for. Head Brewer Drew Huerter will be offering an Oak Aged version of his Pale Ryeder Palm Sugar Rye Tripel. Drew provided me with some information about this beer:

The Pale Rider is the fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse, Death, bringing the last blow of the downfall before the Final Judgment. Our Pale Ryeder is a beer of similarly epic proportions. In the tradition of strong, golden colored ales of the Belgian persuasion being named after the biblical forces of ‘The Adversary’, our Pale Ryeder will sneak up on you. At 9.5% ABV and 35 IBUs, brewed with Pilsner and Rye malts, Thai Palm Sugar, Magnum, Sterling and Styrian Goldings hops, then fermented with our house Belgian yeast culture and aged for four months before release. Please, enjoy savor the Pale Ryeder as if it your last pleasure in the mortal plane, and be responsible enough that it isn’t.

Here’s what’s on tap for next week:

07/07/10 – Per Aspera Pilsner

Be sure to head out tonight and taste some of Drew’s excellent beer.

06/23/10 Mattingly Peek-a-Brew Line Up

I’m proud to announce that on July 12th, STL Hops will be hosting its first ever beer dinner.  I’m also happy to announce that the dinner will be helmed by none other than James Beard Award Nominee, Josh Galliano.  As you may know, Josh is currently the Executive Chef at Monarch and previously the chef de cuisine at An American Place.

Plus, just look at that photo, isn’t he dreamy?

Anyway, I’m lucky enough to call Josh a friend and he was up for the challenge of putting together a beer dinner for STL Hops.  The dinner will be taking place on July 12th, starting at 6:30PM.  The cost for the dinner is $35, not including gratuity, and will feature four different beers paired with four different courses.  W ill be holding this meal at Farmhaus Restaurant as Monarch is currently under construction.

The beers and menu have not been set as of yet, but I should hopefully have more information about the menu as soon as next week.   Ticket can be purchased through Brown Paper Tickets.  As there are only 40 seats available, I have to imagine this is going to go fast.  I’d purchase your tickets as soon as you can.

Big thanks to Kevin Willmann and Farmhaus for providing the space for the event.  Hope to see a bunch of you there.

          I’m sure most of you are aware, but New Belgium Brewery makes a lot of different beers. Sure they’re known for their very popular Fat Tire, but that’s a small portion of their entire beer portfolio. To help introduce more people to the New Belgium’s ever increasing beer line-up, they’ve create a new event they’re calling Clips of Faith.

          Featuring over 20 different short films and 18 different beer styles, the Clips of Faith festival is there to showcase not only the ingenuity of New Belgium Brewery but also some creative filmmakers.  Clips of Faith is a one night only event, taking place this Friday, June 25th from 7PM-10PM at Soulard Market Park.  This is also a fundraiser, so all proceeds for this event will be donated to Trailnet.org.

          Here’s the line-up of beers that will be available at the event:

          • La Folie
          • Eric’s Ale
          • Belgian Blonde
