Missouri Mule Kicked the Green Can Down the Road

We recently poured beer at West Plains Beerfest, and we had a few people come up to our tub of craft can goodness, and say, "I like the one in the green can." Actually, people have been saying that they like the one in the green can since November 2011 when Missouri Mule IPA was the second beer we ever canned on the Piney River Farm.  We are still proud to the be first craft brewery in Missouri to put an IPA in a can because we love hops! The green Missouri Mule IPA can was kicked down the road…

Charity on Tap

If you've been to the BARn, you know that Piney River loves to support local charity.  Every month, we have a local charity that we support with a portion of our sample tray sales.  We've been able to help some great charities--The Missouri Smallmouth Alliance, the Texas County Food Pantry, Women in Need in the Ozarks, TCMH Hospice of Care, the Houston Education Foundation, just to name a few.  The Charity of the Month at the BARn is chosen by Brian, Andy and I to support a cause that is important to us.  We try to stick with charities that…

Winter in the Ozarks Has Me Like….

So ready for a beach, some palm trees, an Ozarks gravel bar, my Chacos, and green grass everywhere. Anybody with me? Maybe I'm just spoiled with the mild winters of most recent years, but it seems like it has been really cold this winter. Cue our beer to chase away your winter blues... Cerveza Rio. We shipped Cerveza Rio out to most of our distributors earlier this month, so if you've seen this bright yellow label glowing on the beer shelf you have found our answer to winter.  This beer is a Mexican-style lager.  It's yellow in color, easy drinking…

Raise A Ruckus Release at the BARn

We’re gonna Raise A Ruckus this weekend ya’ll! The fun begins this Friday at the BARn. We will have 2018 Raise A Ruckus in its traditional form—aged on vanilla and coffee beans (Brick & Mortar Coffee's Piney River blend, thank you very much). We will also have the first barrel-aged Raise A Ruckus, also aged on vanilla and coffee beans, but also aged for almost a year in bourbon and whiskey barrels—mostly J. Rieger & Co. barrels from our friends in KC. Packaged this week, both of these beers are simply delicious. We’ve shared sips of barrels and even some samples…

Aux Arcs Saison—Beautiful Beer for a Beautiful Place

It’s not uncommon when Brian and I are driving around Missouri that we will top a hill or round a bend and marvel at the “classic Ozarks” vista—rolling hills and trees as far as the eye can see. Sometimes the sun is setting in the hills, sometimes it’s rising. Sometimes fog is obscuring the depths of the hollows. There are bluffs.  There are rivers.  There are waterfalls.  It’s always breathtaking. The first Europeans to venture in our hills centuries ago were French surveyors, and they aptly called this area Aux Arcs, French for “to the top arc”. Pronounced “Ozark”, the centuries…

Let There Be Lagers…By Piney River

There are a lot of things that our new brewery has enabled us to do besides make larger quantities of beer at one time. With our new space, we have the additional fermentation tank space to try some things that we have never done in our professional brewing history. Making lagers is one of those things. There are basically two different types of beer—ale and lager. What determines if a beer is an ale or a lager is based on the yeast and the way the beer ferments. The yeast in an ale ferments on top of the beer at…
