How to Celebrate 6 Years of Making Beer on a Farm in the Ozarks

By | Beer Events | No Comments

We moved our Aleiversary celebration to the last weekend in March this year in order to better accommodate the schedules of our distributor and retail partners. We wanted them to be able to join us in celebrating instead of being up to their eyeballs in St. Patrick’s Day revelry, and it worked! Brian and I hosted almost 100 retail and distribution partners at the BARn for the Aleiversary. Even better—over 600 of our friends and fans and Ozarks craft beer lovers came out for our big day on Saturday. And many of you also joined us on Friday and Sunday, too….

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…

How We Celebrated 5 Years on the Piney River Farm

By | Beer Events | No Comments

Five years. Five years?! FIVE YEARS!!! In February, during our grand opening weekend for the new brewery, I told people that five years ago, if you would have told me that there would be a new 12,000 square foot barn on our farm with a new brewhouse, new cold storage, new canning line, etc., I would have laughed and said, “You’ve obviously been drinking.” And here we are, five years later with all of those things and celebrating our 5th Aleiversary to boot. For the first time at an Aleiversary, Brian and I did not spend a crazy portion of the…

4th Aleiversary—The Best One Yet

By | Beer Events | No Comments

Yes, we had some anxiety about the 4th Aleiversary. Just like the 3rd Aleiversary, we planned to be overwhelmed. Portapotties? Check. Two food trucks? Check. Security? Check. Beer trailer with six taps outside? Check. ID bracelets and beer tickets? Had those to. We even had a brand spanking new deck addition–built just in time. Everyone knows that the sun always shines on the Aleiversary, so even though we began watching the weather religiously a month in advance, sunshine seemed pretty likely (insert fingers and toes crossed). On February 13th the construction on our building ground to a halt with snow,…

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…
