sq1r-y-cropped-small-web-viewSt. Louis will be awash with at least three new breweries in 2011, but the long established breweries aren’t going to let the new guys have all of the fun. Square One Brewery added one new serving tank and two new fermenters to their Lafayette Square location.

According to Square One head brewer John Witte, the new fermenters are not only in place but have already been filled with an Imperial IPA and our Barley Wine. Square One has increased their beer business by 10% this year and the three fermenters they were previously using were, in John Witte’s words, “Limiting.”  Not only will the new equipment allow Square One to produce more beer, but Witte promises new styles in the future as well.

A great option to try out some of  Square One’s most creative beer is their New Year’s Eve Big Beer Dinner. Three or four different courses will be paired with “big” beers from Square One. You can make reservations for this dinner by calling 314-231-2537.
