As I mentioned on Friday GABF was this weekend. Unfortunately, only one St. Louis brewery came back with some medals:

  • Category: 12 Gluten Free Beer – 8 Entries Gold: RedBridge, Anheuser-Busch, Inc., St. Louis, MO Silver: New Grist, Lakefront Brewery, Milwaukee, WI Bronze: Shakparo Ale, Sprecher Brewing Co., Glendale, WI
  • Category: 29 German Style Marzen – 58 Entries Gold: Victory Festbier, Victory Brewing Co., Downingtown, PA Silver: Stewart’s Oktoberfest, Stewart’s Brewing Co., Bear, DE Bronze: Michelob Marzen, Anheuser-Busch, Inc., St. Louis, MO

Congrats to AB, I’ve never actually had their Marzen, I’ll have to give it a go sometime.

In other news Derek from O’Fallon Brewery has passed along the info that the brewery is sold out of Pumpkin Ale. What you see on your store shelves is all you’ll see for the rest of the season. They’re gearing up for their newest seasonal Goat’s Breath Bock Ale.

Paul from The Wine and Cheese Place has informed me of two new beers they have in. One is the Buffalo Belgian Stout from Brouwerij Van den Bossch, which I believe is the only Belgian Stout available in St. Louis. The other is Bell’s Best Brown Ale, which is one of their winter seasonals.

One last beer note is that yesterday I saw that the Schlafly Coffee Stout brewed with Kaldi’s coffee has hit store shelves. If you’re a fan, be sure to look out for it.

Thanks to Dave for catching the Bell’s error.
