Once COVID 19 put us on lock down, there have been some really neat things that have come out of it and this is one of them. Inspired by the Maltose Falcons Homebrew Club based in Los Angeles, CA, we decided to start something similar here in Saint Louis that is open to any who want to participate.
Each month we line up a local brewery in the Saint Louis area. We put out an order sheet for people to place an order of 4 beers in a 4 pack from that brewery. The cost is between $12 and $16 per pack. The beers in the pack are chosen by the brewery as is the price. Once an order is placed we send out an invoice to be paid. After the order deadline, we pass on the number of orders to the brewery at which time they start getting the 4 packs ready for pick up the following week. After we pay for the 4 packs ordered and pick them up, we drop them off at local drop off points to be pick up. We gather online via Zoom call to go trough a tasting of each beer in the 4 pack, learn the story behind the brewery and each beer as well as a question and answer time with the brewer. This is a great way to get to know our local breweries more and support their business. To be added to the email distribution list or for more information send us a message.
We currently have three locations to pick up orders from. Missouri Malt & Mill Supply in Fenton, MO. Down the Hall Homebrew store in Bellville, IL. The third option is pick up at the brewery itself.
December spotlight and featured Brewery for December's Virtual Happy Hour is Wellspent. Kyle has put together a nice line up for us to go through the tasting. As always on the Happy Hour we explore the history of the brewery as well as the story behind the beers, not just the ingredients. Order deadline is on December 12, 2021. We will be live on our Facebook page on December 22 and take the journey into Wellspent Brewing Co. See you then.
