November 2012 Newsletter
We are proud to announce that Perennial’s Heart of Gold Wheat Wine won a silver medal at this year’s Great American Beer Festival. It took 2nd in the “Other Strong Ale” category, runner up to Boulevard’s Reverb Imperial Pilsner. We are honored to have won a medal in our inaugural year and first GABF appearance. Hopefully there will be many more to come!
From the Brewer…
We have finally made it through our first year! Thank you so much from everyone here at Perennial for all of your love and support as we have made headway into the St. Louis beer community. Our Anniversary Festival was great fun, and we were happy to share our limited releases with those of you in attendance. We have had some really exciting releases lately here at the brewery; IPA #4 has been put on draft in the tasting room. This IPA is a 10.5% Imperial IPA that has huge citrus notes as well as a nice malty backbone, making it an ideal IPA as we are coming into the cold months. Phil has also brewed a new flagship beer, Aria, a Brettanomyces fermented Belgian Ale. We had a cask of this at our anniversary party, will continue to have draft in the tasting room, and will soon be bottling this one! In addition, get excited for the release of the 2012 Abraxas. We have brewed the first couple batches already, and will be releasing it this month, with the 2011 bourbon barrel version being released it January. Thanks again for all the support through our first year and we will see you soon!!!
