Drew Huerter, brewer extraordinaire, emailed to let me in on a couple of news beers in the area that are very worthy of your attention. Since Drew not only works for Morgan Street, but also Schlafly and Mattingly Brothers, he has his finger on the pulse for all of the cool releases in St. Louis.
Oak Aged Cask Oatmeal Stout at Schlafly Tap Room – That just sounds awesome, doesn’t it? I know I was pretty excited when he first told me about this beer about a month ago, but now it’s finally on cask. Here’s a few words from him about it:
Brennan and I are experimenting with differing toast/char levels and methods with miniature oak staves from Missouri World Cooperage. We are yet to even try it, but are excited nonetheless.
Dark Wheat at Morgan Street – Drew tells me that this beer is back after a seven year hiatus. Sadly, I haven’t made my way down to Morgan Street in quite some time, it looks like I have a great excuse now:
45 IBUs of Mt. Hood and Sterling with wheat, pilsner, crystal and chocolate malts add up to a hoppy, hazy, brown lager. Out of the fermenter is was unlike anything I’ve tasted.
