royale-weblogo-300x163I don’t know if I can describe this event at The Royale better than the folks at the Royale, so I’ll let them do the heavy lifting on this one:

It has become a commonplace for beer lovers to remark upon the embarrassment of riches we enjoy here in St. Louis. We have more breweries than most of us can count, and several of them are even world class – which is really saying something in 2015. We’ve seen everything from session beers packed with flavor to genre-breaking innovations, and several breweries have even invested in barrel-aging programs to great success.

Seeing as the Royale has recently been blessed with some outstanding examples of barrel-aged goodness, including several of the prized wild/sour persuasion, we’ve decided to go all out and devote half of our taps to these rare brews:

  • 2nd Shift Grace – wild ale fermented and aged in wood with multiple brett strains. 7.4%
  • 4 Hands Cuvee Diable – saison aged in red wine barrels with tart cherries. 5.8%
  • Cathedral Square St. Jewbelation – rye/wild ale aged in Funky Jewbelation barrels. 9%
  • Excel 2nd Anniversary Ale – imperial porter aged in rye whiskey barrels. 11%
  • Perennial Savant Blanc – brett fermented Belgian blonde aged in Chardonnay barrels. 8%
  • Urban Chestnut Barrel-Aged Daft – American barleywine aged in Buffalo Trace, Van Winkle, and Willett whiskey barrels. 12.5%

The fun begins at 6pm on Thursday, January 29th. Half-size pours will be available for all so you can try as many as you like. Cheers!

That’s a silly-crazy good line-up. You’d be silly-crazy to miss out.
