15_perennialIt’s almost May and I’m already tired of this election season. But what if you wanted to vote on something that really matters?

Well, Perennial Artisan Ales has an issue we all can get behind, picking the new flavor of their Berliner Weisse. Beginning at 4PM tonight, Perennial will have on eight different fruited versions of their delicious base Berliner Weiss and they need you to vote on them!

Each of these versions was submitted by the entire Perennial crew and includes:

  • Cascara & Pear
  • Balaton & Montmorency Cherry
  • Grapefruit & Mandarin
  • Mirabelle Plum, Mango & Grapefruit Zest
  • Tart Cherries & Cinnamon
  • Grapefruit & Basil
  • Cranberry & Orange
  • Pomegranate & Lime

You’ll have the ability to enjoy up to two samples of 5oz sample of each beer at a time and then you’ll vote on your favorite.  All the beers are limited and your vote will matter. The winner of this contest will have the beer scaled up and distributed to all of Perennial’s markets.

Feel the Berl; do your civic duty and head out to Perennial tonight and vote for this very important matter.

Almost 10000 votes later, we now have a winner for the STL Hops St. Louis Beer Challenge. Ladies and gentlemen, this year’s winner is the Schlafly’s American IPA.

It was a hard-fought final match versus the 2nd Shift Brewing’s Art of Neurosis IPA, with a 67.1% to 32.9% final match-up. AIPA was a juggernaut all the way through the tournament, which isn’t that surprising as it’s always one of the most talked about beers on STL Hops. It’s especially exciting as this beer should be hitting store shelves very soon. Talk about a good way to celebrate a win!

I hope everyone had a lot of fun with this and didn’t take it too seriously. Congrats to all of the contestants and thanks again for giving us some great beer in St. Louis.

schlaflyapaOver 11000 votes and we now have a winner for the STL Hops St. Louis Beer Challenge. Ladies and gentlemen, this year’s winner is the Schlafly’s Dry-Hopped APA.

It was a hard-fought final match versus the Buffalo Brewing Rye IPA, with a 66.2% to 33.8% final match-up. Earlier in the week, the Rye IPA took a large lead in the poll, but Schlafly fans came around and fought their way back to make this a very impressive win.

I hope everyone had a lot of fun with this and didn’t take it too seriously. Congrats to all of the contestants and thanks again for giving us some great beer in St. Louis.

Here we are, down to the final two beers. In one corner we have last year’s St. Louis Beer Championship Winner, the Schlafly Dry Hopped APA and in the other corner we have a local favorite who was accidentally left off of last year’s competition, the Buffalo Brewing Rye IPA.

After seeing this year’s results, it would have been interesting to see how the Rye IPA would have fared last year.

Both of these are fantastic beers that I’m more than proud to see in the final two. No matter who loses, we all win with these great beers. The winner will be announced Thursday, April 8th. Get voting!

So here we are, we’re at the STL Hops St. Louis Beer Challenge Final Four. We have three favorites versus an underdog that has fought it’s way into the final four. This second to final round features O’Fallon’s 5 Day IPA going up against Buffalo’s Rye IPA. The other final match provides last year’s winner the Schlafly’s Dry Hopped APA against the Schlafly Coffee Stout.

Could we see O’Fallon’s 5 Day IPA take on Schlafly’s APA for a battle of the hops? Perhaps the underdog Buffalo will power through another round and make it’s way into the Championship match up? Well, we’ll find out on Monday who will be one match away from the STL Hops St. Louis Beer Challenge Championship. Get voting!

Round 3 of the STL Hops 2010 St. Louis Beer Challenge proved to have some dominating victories but also had a couple of close match-ups.

Square One may have stayed alive by taking out the Schlafly #15 in round two, but couldn’t get past the juggernaut that is Schlafly Kolsch. O’Fallon’s 5 Day IPA continues its domination and easily dances into Round 4.

We’re now at the Elite 8 and we’re down to just three breweries.  We have Schlafly’s APA facing off against O’Fallon’s newest kid on the block, the Hemp Hop Rye.  We also have Buffalo facing off against itself, in a huge match-up between the Rye IPA and the Buffalo Tail IIPA.  Must be a nice feeling to know at least one of your beers is going to reach the final four.

Time to get voting!

Wow, we had some close, close battles in Round 2 of the STL Hops 2010 St. Louis Beer Challenge. Let’s take a look at some of the squeakers and look forward to see who’s battling it out in round 3.

Some of the highlights include O’Fallon’s Smoked Porter just barely eking out a victory over Six Row Brewing’s Wee-Heavy in a 51% to 49% match-up. Square One stays alive taking out the Schlafly #15.  And Augusta moves on by winning its battle with Amalgamated Brewing’s Helles.

But now Round 3 has brought us to the Sweet Sixteen and only one brewery didn’t make it into the third round. This is time for the nitty-gritty, and you have some tough choices ahead of you including: Mattingly’s HOPtimal APA vs Schlafly’s APA, Six Row’s Extra Pale Ale vs Buffalo Tail APA and two separate battles of two beers from the same brewery facing off.

Time to get voting!
