Sometimes It’s Good to Be High

We've been practicing...staying up late, drinking something with a big ABV every night, pushing ourselves in anticipation of a trip to Denver, Colorado. Denver has been good to us.  We took home a gold for Old Tom Porter at Great American Beer Festival in Denver.  We took home gold for Float Trip Ale at the World Beer Cup in Denver.  We always find our way to Star Bar,  Euclid Hall, Rioja, and Acorn when we're in Denver.  Our friends at New Belgium and other breweries in the area welcome beer family with open arms.  The Mile High City is always a…

Honey, I Shrunk the Piney River Cans

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…

Chchchchanges Coming in 2017

We are so excited to bring you the Piney River Brewing Company 2017 release calendar! Twelve ounce cans are headed your way! There will be more information about that later, and actual 12 oz cans sooner rather than later, too. Stay tuned for that! We are releasing--in limited quantities--new canned beers throughout the year. They are Raise a Ruckus Imperial Stout, River Access Ozarks Lager and Aux Arcs Saison. And that foeder, those barrels, the original BARn is officially where we've got the funk going on.  The first of our Farm Raised Funk was Lizzie Twister, the first funkified beer…

Getting Ready for GABF 2014

Our first Piney River toast with our Gold medal winning Old Tom Porter.You may have heard that at the Great American Beer Festival in 2013, Piney River took home a gold medal. Yep, we're still kind of in shock about that win. But after our Gold Award experience at the World Beer Cup in April, it's safe to say that we are really excited about entering in the 2014 GABF Competition. The chances are much greater that we will come away empty handed than with any awards, but our level of excitement for the competition is much higher in 2014…
