PrintWe envy what we don’t have. We’re all human and it’s easy to get caught up in looking for the next thing. But it’s nice to appreciate what we have.

One of those things is Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales out of Ann Arbor, MI. While we all go searching for that difficult to source bottle, Jolly Pumpkin stoically sits on the shelf, waiting for the next lucky soul to purchase it.

So it’s nice to see the Bridge Tap House put on an event to celebrate all things JP. The event, which takes place tonight, May 27th, is entitled “April Showers Bring Jolly Pumpkin Sours” and will feature La Roja du Kriek, Rojilla, Bam Biere, Noel de Calabaza and Fuego del Otono.

Tappings begin at 5PM and Bridge will also be giving away Jolly Pumpkin glassware as well. Pay honor to one of the workhorses of sour beer available in our area by visiting the Bridge tonight.

Sometimes all it takes is something as easy as simply asking.  Some of us on the STL Hops forums are a big fan of Jolly Pumpkin beers and would love to see some of their products available on draught in St. Louis.

After a couple of Twitter messages and talking to the local distributor, it was agreed upon that we should probably see some draught products by July.  But low and behold, this was the photo sent to me from Mike Turriff, V.P. Sales Northern United Brewing Company this morning.

The photo is a little blurry, but it’s JP’s witbier, Calabaza Blanca.  So it looks like we’ll have some of this delicious beer before July.  Sometimes it just pays to ask.
