Limited Beer Releases

It’s a wonderful thing how far craft beer has come in the last 10 years.  More and more breweries are starting up around the country and demand for some already established craft beers are at an all time high.  We look forward to seeing what our beer department will look like in another 10 years.

That said, much like some of the most sought after Bourbons, the beer world has its rare releases that customers look forward to every year.  Such examples include:

  • Goose Island BCS  (Bourbon County Stout, also might include Bourbon County Coffee Stout, Nightstalker Imperial Stout, etc)
  • Founders KBS (Kentucky Breakfast Stout)
  • Founders Backstage Series (brands like Canadian Breakfast Stout, Doom, etc.)
  • Perennial Abraxas
  • Bell’s Hopslam
  • Boulevard BBQ (Bourbon Barrel Quadrupel)
  • Sam Adams Utopias
  • Firestone Walker Sucaba and Parabola
  • Cantillon

Our Beer Manager Jeff Brooks is great at making sure we get ample amounts of these releases, but a lot of times the supply that comes into Missouri is lower than expected.  To make sure everyone gets a fair chance at these releases, the Beer Department decided that NO RESERVATIONS WILL BE TAKEN FOR BEERS AGED IN ANY TYPE OF WHISKEY OR WINE BARREL.  All releases will be handled via instructions posted on our website.

If you have any questions about limited beers and their scheduled releases, or any questions in general about beer, don’t hesitate to give us a call.

    Last year I went to the bourbon county release party and it was awesome! Got some great rare beer and met a ton of beer geeks. I don’t see any news about it happening this year. Is there any time of release details?

    • Jeremy,

      KBS is usually released nationwide on April 1st. However, with that date being a Saturday this year, there is a good chance that it will be the week after.
      Keep posted to our website and social media for any updates.

    Hi, I was wondering if there was any way to order Allagash White. I see the closest is Chicago area. It’s from Portland, ME but makes it all the way to California so I thought I’d ask if we could get it. Thank you.

    • Al,

      Unfortunately we have no ability to order Allagash. Missouri is a three tier state, which means that we can only order from licensed distributors, and until one of them were able to sell us Allagash, we cannot order it in.

    • Joe,

      As of this post, Founders KBS is due to hit on or just after April 1st. Quantities will be extremely limited, and we are finalizing our plans for its release. Please keep posted to our website and social media for any updates. Thanks!

    Hi, do you have an ETA when you’ll have more Firestone Walker Parabola and Double DBA? Are you going to receive the Stone Enjoy After 10/31/15? Thanks.

    • Phil,

      The Firestone Walker Double DBA and Velvet Merkin have come in and been sold out, but we are still awaiting the next release of Parabola. The Stone “Enjoy after” is currently unknown as we do not know how soon Missouri might see this beer. Please watch our website for full release details about all nee and limited beers. Never hesitate to give us a call at 636-227-4543 as well.

    • Sean,

      Unfortunately we are completely sold out of the Odell’s Tree Shaker IPA. If there is any other recommendation you need as a close alternative, please let us know.

    Hello. Would you know to know when Three Kings (4 Hands) will be available?

    Also, could a bottle of the above be held in reserve for me?

    • John,

      As of thsi post, we do not how soon or if we will see the 4 Hands Three kings on our shelves. However, because it is a bourbon barrel aged beer, and if we receive some there won’t be much of it, we cannot take a reservation for it. You will have to watch our website for details about its release and how to acquire a bottle.

    Do you carry anything from DuClaw? I have tried their Sweet Baby Jesus and want to see if I can find it around here, it is an excellent beer.

  6. Ryan says:

    DO you carry anything from Terrapin Beer Company of Athens,GA? Moreover, the Cinnamon Roll’d Wake-n-Bake Coffee Oatmeal Imperial Stout?
