Brewcyrus Does Portland, A CBC 2015 Recap

By | Beer Events | 3 Comments

“This is insane,” the cab driver said to Brian and I. He was talking about the 11,000+ people in attendance at the Craft Brewer’s Conference in Portland last week. “We aren’t able to handle groups like this,” the cab driver said. “We had a big coffee convention here, but those people didn’t go out to big events every night and need rides everywhere.”  (Which leads me to believe that the coffee folks just don’t have nearly as much fun as the beer folks.) This was our 5th time to attend a Craft Brewer’s Conference, our first time to visit Portland,…

As we’ve learned over the past four years, craft beer crosses all political lines, and we can all come together to share a beer. And that’s how this came to be. We were very honored to host our Congressman for Missouri’s 8th District at Piney River today.  Representative Jason Smith and his aides Eric Harmon and Tammy Corrigan picked a beautiful day in the Ozarks for a look around their local craft…

The Behind the Scenes Peek at Our First World Beer Cup Win

By | The Beer | 3 Comments

I need to preface this blog post by saying that I feel like anything I write here is going to seem much less dramatic than Piney River’s first big win at the Great American Beer Festival.  Even in those moments after we won Gold at GABF last October, I remember thinking, “There will never be another moment like this one.”  There’s only one first time. Shortly after the 2013 Great American Beer Festival, we were contacted to participate in the largest beer competition in the world–the World Beer Cup.  Also put on by the Brewer’s Association, the World Beer Cup…
