fraisecasseeCollaborations not only allow brewers to work on something together, but also usually provide some unique creations.  Such is the case when Six Row Brewing was approached by The OG, the St. Louis Women’s Craft Beer Collective, to brew up a a special beer they’re calling Fraise Cassèe.

Avid homebrewers Abbey Spencer and Kathy DeLassus developed the recipe for Fraise Cassèe last year and debuted it at the Flying Saucer.  It was such a hit that Evan Hiatt from Six Row was eager to work with Abbey and Kathy to scale this up to a full batch.  Here’s a description of the beer:

Fraise Cassèe (Broken Strawberry) is The OG’s signature Strawberry Saison recipe brewed in collaboration with Six Row Brewing COmpany. A traditional saison with the addition of pureed strawberry makes for a delightfully tart and dry ale with a hint of black pepper and a strawberry finish.

Beginning the first week of April you’ll be begin seeing a limited amount of bottles and draft around the St. Louis area.  And of course you’ll be able to find some at the Six Row tasting room as well. A perfect beer for the beginning of spring!

Today, from 4PM to 6PM the Wine and Cheese Place in Clayton will hold its weekly Friday beer tasting in which they will be pouring: 2nd Shift Mullineaux No.3, To Øl Sleep Over Coffee IIPA, Urban Chestnut Fantasyland, Urban Chestnut SLIPILS, Urban Chestnut H.M.S., and Urban Chestnut Stammtisch. Additional information can be found at their blog.

Today, from 4PM to 6PM the Wine and Cheese Place on New Ballas will continue their Friday beer tastings to celebrate the store’s expanded selection.

oshaysIt’s hockey season and we’re all rooting for the Blues to go all the way this year. (Oh please, stop breaking our hearts!) The best place to watch the Blues this season? O’Shay’s Pub.

Not only does O’Shay’s have a great selection of rotating craft beers, they’re doing something special during the hockey season by pairing with breweries to do special events each month. This month they’re working with another local powerhouse, Six Row Brewing.

To kick off this month’s partnership, O’Shay’s is hosting a Six Row Tap Takeover this Saturday, November 8th from 7-10PM. They’ll be featuring Whale, Double IPA, and Vanilla Porter on tap along with cans of Arch Nemesis Midnight Black IPA and Sunshine Slowdown.

Six Row and O’Shay’s will be giving away swag throughout the tap takeover this Saturday. Thomas from Six Row will also be on hand giving out some samples.

And for every Six Row beer purchased during the month of November, O’Shay’s will put your name in a drawing for two Blues tickets! Drink beer and possibly win tickets? That’s a power play.

Canned craft beer is big business in St. Louis right now.  We’ve seen Kirkwood Station Brewing Co. and 4 Hands Brewing show up with new cans in the market and I’m happy to announce that Six Row Brewing is canning beer as well.

Utilizing the same mobile canning unit that KSB and 4 Hands are using, Six Row decided to make a splash and bring out a 16oz 4-pack of cans as well.  But new packaging wasn’t enough for head brewer Evan Hiatt, he decided to give Six Row a bit of a refresh and introduce two new beers as well.

If all goes to plan, beginning late next week we should be seeing 4-packs of Whale and two new offerings: Sunshine Slowdown and Arch Nemesis Midnight Black IPA.

Sunshine Slowdown is a Six Row’s take on a American-style Cream Ale, which is perfect for the warm summer months. The Arch Nemesis is a bigger monster, a Black IPA coming in at 8.5% ABV with 80 IBUs.

These are going to be year-round beers and if everything goes the way Six Row expects, a fourth seasonal can should be online later this autumn. Great to have another can option here in St. Louis!

acbw_badge2Chances are if you visit this blog you know that May 13-19 is American Craft Beer Week.  If you did not know this, don’t feel bad, Six Row Brewing Company and Square One Brewery have you covered. Here’s a look at the events happening at these two locations this week:

Square One:

Saturday May 18 Square One will host its monthly beer and spirits school-with a twist. This month will feature a beer and cheese tasting, hosted by Dr. Witte, along with the usual history lesson and brewery tour. Class is limited to the first 25 who call the restaurant to register and begins at 11 am. A handful of spots are still available.
