elijahpsLearning is good. Learning about beer is even better. While drinking beer is definitely fun, I find that I enjoy something on a deeper level when I know more about it.

With that in mind Certified Cicerone® Zachary Pohlman is restarting his famous monthly beer school at Elijah P’s in Alton. Each moth Zach will feature different styles, breweries, or brewing techniques to give you a better peek behind the curtain in the wonderful world of beer.

This month Zach and Elijah P’s will be welcoming 4 Hands Brewing and special guest head brewer (and failed Crave Case eater) Andy Burgio. Andy and Zach will be discussing and tasting:

  • 4 Hands Reprise Centennial Red (American Amber Ale)
  • 4 Hands Ca$h Mony (American Double IPA)
  • 4 Hands Absence of Light (Peanut Butter Milk Stout)
  • 4 Hands Madagascar (Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Milk Stout w/ Vanilla Bean)

This very awesome beer school will be taking place on Thursday, January 28th beginning at 6PM. So, head out to Elijah P’s to drink and learn.

Mango-HOP-anero LabelDid you know that as we get older, our sense of tastes decreases? It’s why some of us pick up the love of spicy foods later in life. We need a little bit of kick to put our taste buds on alert.

I love beer and I also love some hot sauce, so Mission Taco Joint and 4 Hands Brewing Co. did the obvious thing and put them both together.  Starting today (National Hot Sauce Day, as I’m sure you’re fully aware) both Mission Taco location you’ll have your first chance to buy the Mango-HOP-anero hot sauce.

Here’s the description from MTJ:

This year we collaborated with 4Hands Brewery and made a special release pepper sauce called Mango-HOP-anero, using 4Hands Incarnation IPA (formerly Resurrection IPA). The pepper sauce brings subtle sweet notes from the mango, a good amount of heat from the habanero, and tropical scents from the mosaic hops of the beer.

So, stop by Mission Taco and enjoy some tasty tacos (or burritos) and also purchase a bottle of Mango-HOP-anero to-go for $7.

hot&heavy2016As long as you attended a remedial science class you know that while water freezes at 32° Fahrenheit, beer can sustain much lower temperatures. In fact, a 10% ABV beer can be chilled all the way down to 25° without being frozen.

With the weather being what it’s been this week, this is important knowledge. But, let’s be honest, most beers that are 10% ABV don’t taste great at 25°. Luckily, things are Hot and Heavy at Eclipse Restaurant tomorrow, January 15th thanks to 4 Hands Brewing.

Beginning at 6PM, Eclipse will be pouring five beers that are definitely big and will definitely help keep you warm. The line up will be Bona Fide, Devil’s Invention, Madagascar, and Apple Brandy Woodsman.  There will also be Oskar Blues Death by Coconut and Stone Woot Stout.

And luckily, as most of these beers are around 9-10%, we all know they won’t freeze at 28° tomorrow. Stay warm.
