This new location will serve as a second location for Charleville, allowing everyone the opportunity to enjoy Charleville beers without having to travel to Ste. Genevieve. To preview this new location, Charleville and their new partners the Hamilton Hospitality Group are throwing a little party to show off the space.

This Thursday, October 20th from 5-8pm Charleville will be hosting Boar and Brew. Charleville will be selling four different barrel-aged beers by the bottle:

Flanders Red – aged in oak barrels with cherries
Kick in the Cranberries – aged in white wine barrels with Cranberries
BA Barleywine – aged in bourbon barrels **VERY LIMITED Quantites**
BA Box of Chocolate – aged in bourbon barrels **VERY LIMITED Quantities**

They will also be serving a pig roast dinner with two sides for $11.99 per person. You will also have the opportunity to look over the new space and the blueprints as well.

Congrats to our friends at Charleville for this very exciting announcement!

dickhessThis Friday, March 14th, Charleville Brewery celebrates their 6th Annual Dick Hess Vertical Barleywine Challenge. Each year Charleville makes a barleywine and since it coincides with a family friend of the Charleville Brewery family, they decided to meld the two events together and throw a party each year to celebrate.

hen_logo_finWhile I’ve had some mighty fine beer pairings in my life, there is always something that brings me back to beer and BBQ. We’re lucky in St. Louis to have a bunch of great places that serve some great BBQ.

You don’t get to create good BBQ without being a great chef and with that I’m happy to announce that Hendrick’s BBQ in the St. Charles will be putting on a beer dinner next Thursday, November 14th, beginning at 6:30PM.

This five course meal will cost you $40 per person and will feature beer from Charleville Brewery. Seats are limited and you can make reservations by calling 636-724-8600. Here’s a look at the menu:

Breweries aren’t dumb. They know you love their everyday line-up, but they know you clamor for the special releases. If it’s difficult to get, the more people seem to want to buy it. Sometimes you have people lining out the door to get their hands on these hard to get beers.

Charleville Microbrewery has always had some unusual one-off creations so it should come as no surprise that they’re doing some cool stuff this fall. Over the next few days, Charleville will be releasing a few of their one-off kegs for a few events at the International Tap House.

Here’s a list of events:

  • Tuesday Oct 23rd – 6PM (iTap Soulard) – We release 1 of 2 kegs of the Saline Kriek (Aged in Chardonel Wine Barrels for 9 months then aged on tart cherries for 4 months)
  • Friday Oct 26th – 6PM (iTap Chesterfield) – We will have a cask of The Witch’s Brew’mmm Pumpkin
  • Tuesday Oct 30th – 6PM (iTap Chesterfield) – We release the 2nd keg of Saline Kriek, and it is Panda’s Birthday!

If you’re looking to try some of these fascinating creations, make sure to visit iTAP for these events this week.

Seems like more and more liquor stores are hopping on the collaboration bandwagon. And why not? You get to work one-on-one with the breweries to create something special for your customers.

This time around we have Lukas Liquor who has worked with Charleville Brewery to come up with a very special ale. Here’s some information about it:

Follow along the Saline Creek to discover our brewery nestled amongst our hillside vineyards. Saline Kriek is an Ale inspired from our love of beer and passion for wine. Brewed with cherries and aged for 9 months in Missouri White Oak Barrels which had previously fermented and aged our Estate Chardonel wine.

As with all of these collaborations, only a small amount of this beer was produced and it will be made available beginning tonight (Thursday, October 4th) from 5PM-7PM. I don’t expect it to last long, so make your way out to Lukas tonight to pick up a bottle.
