Big props to Paul Hayden from the Wine and Cheese Place for discoving this bit of news, but it appears that O’Fallon Brewery has upgraded their liquor(?) license which will allow them to brew beers with higher ABVs.
According to O’Fallon’s co-founder Tony Caradonna, they already have some big plans coming over the next year. And it doesn’t look like he’s kidding. If you look at the image below, you can see that they’ve already registered a Russian Imperial Stout with the U.S. Government. As you can also see below, this will be a draught only item.
While I’m sure everyone, including O’Fallon Brewery, would love to see their beer brewed and bottled back in Missouri, it’s nice to know that contract brewing has given them a bit more breathing room to do some fun stuff like this. I can’t wait to see what’s ahead.
