Raise a Ruckus with Us

By | Beer Events, The BARn, The Beer | No Comments

Anybody out there interested in raising a ruckus with us? Let’s do it next week!  Because Raise A Ruckus, our imperial stout will be out next week, and it’s delicious. We also think it’s ruckus worthy. Here’s the story. Last year we brewed up our first imperial stout with KC homebrewer Michael Wells. The beer was delicious and a big hit in our tap room and in the retail accounts where we were able to place some kegs of the beer.  As we were planning for our 2017 production schedule, Brian and I knew that we needed to bring back another big and…

First of the Piney River Farm Raised Beers…Lizzie Twister

By | The BARn, The Beer | One Comment

We’ve made a new beer that’s selling like hot cakes this summer in the tap room. Lizzie Twister is a Berliner-style weisse beer which means that it’s a style of wheat beer traditionally made in Germany. In fact, a Berliner weisse is a tart wheat beer. This style of beer is also traditionally low ABV, so Lizzie is a mere 4% which is nice and easy on a hot day in the Ozarks. To make this beer, we brewed the beer then pithed lactobacillus into the beer while it was in the fermentation vessel. The lactobacillus when used properly gives…

FRI-YAY (& Saturday and Sunday, too) on the Farm Brewery

By | The BARn | No Comments

In case you haven’t already heard, the BARn tap room is now open for a lot more than Saturday! Back in May, we kicked off Sundays on Mother’s Day weekend.  All the moms got a free pint that Sunday, and we’ve been open every Sunday from 12 to 5 p.m. since then. Beginning on Labor Day weekend, we started opening the tap room on Friday afternoon and evening 2 to 9 p.m. As always, the BARn is family friendly.  Andy’s Homemade Root Beer is on draft for those that don’t drink beer.  We’re pet friendly, too, and there’s always a…

Celebrating Craft Beer in the Ozarks–Piney River Style

By | Beer Events, The BARn, The Beer | One Comment

It was in March of 2011 that Brian and I cracked open the doors to the BARn for the very first time. Somewhat to our surprise, folks showed up! We filled growlers, we poured pints, we sampled the beer that we were brewing after work, sometimes after midnight, on our Sabco Brew Magic 10-gallon system. The “system” for serving beer that first year at the BARn included a table across the middle of brew house floor and picnic tables and camp chairs located out in front of the BARn. A year later, we had a bar built in the upstairs…

A Craft Beer Thank You to You!

By | Beer Events, The BARn | 3 Comments

For our second Ale-iversary a friend gave us a card (and a really cool growler) that said the frequently used Benjamin Franklin quote, “Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.” Happy is really the best word to describe the 2nd Ale-iversary at Piney River Brewing Company. We’ve been working fast and furious for the past few months to pull this off…got the cherry wood floor down, added electricity to the South side of the BARn (for live music), got trim put up, added the other speakers we purchased for last year’s Ale-iversary, brewed up…

Tap Room Tweaks

By | The BARn | No Comments

Many of you were at the BARn last weekend. A lot of you were not here, but it was nearly standing room only. And there were so many empty kegs at the end of the day that we wondered what we would serve in the upcoming week. Even now, I am thinking of this person and that person that came in…and many of you stayed awhile, too. On a fluke, and since it was Labor Day weekend, Brian and I got some brats and grilled them to give away to those that came in, too. ; We had two new…
