Honey, I Shrunk the Piney River Cans

By | The Beer | 2 Comments

Today was a cloudy, rainy day on the Piney River Farm; not too different from the cloudy, rainy night in 2011 when Piney River first canned craft beer in the Ozarks. Today’s first–12 ounce Piney River cans. Those of us that have been canning beer on the Farm are still trying to adjust to these smaller cans in our hands, but we’re doing what many of our consumers and our distributors have asked us to do by putting our beer in a smaller can. Waaay back in 2011 when Piney River was the first microbrewery in the state to can beer…

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,…

Prepared to be Overwhelmed–Our 3rd Aleiversary Tale

By | Beer Events | No Comments

“If you would have told me a year ago that I would be standing here tonight making potato salad for ‘my staff’ for the Aleiversary After Party, I would have laughed.” That’s what I told Brian on Friday night about 9 p.m. Install a bar in the upstairs tap room before the 1st Aleiversary? We did that in March 2012. Put together tables and chairs for 100 before the 2nd Aleiversary? We did that in March of 2013. Every year we’ve been building something until hours before our big event. This year, we had professional help from Tim Prater at…

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…
