Got a little tip from a member of the STL Hops community and after a bit of investigation it looks like St. Louis will be getting another new brewery very soon. The name of this brewery will be 4 Hands Brewing. My sources tell me it’ll be a new production brewery located near downtown St. Louis.
I’ve been told that Will Johnston, formerly of Lucette Brewing Company out of Wisconsin and Goose Island Brewery, has signed on to be the new brewmaster for 4 Hands. I have a call in to the developers behind 4 Hand and hope to have some more information to you soon.
This is yet another exciting development in the local St. Louis beer scene. In the meantime, here’s a few photos and information from their Facebook page:
4 Hands Brewing Company, located in St. Louis Missouri, will provide the craft beer enthusiast a handcrafted portfolio inspired by the American Craft movement as well as Traditional Belgium and French Farmhouse ales. 4 Hands Brewing Company will package the Core collection in 12 oz 6 packs, the Seasonal selection in 22 oz bottles, and the Barrel Aged program in 750 ml champagne bottles.
The Barrel Aged Program will produce a truly unique line of beers. The use of Wine And Spirit Barrels containing an array of adjuncts (fruit, herbs, spices) in conjunction with wild yeast strains will enhance the flavors to produce a one of a kind beer.
