Festival Season Is Here

On Thursday, May 5th, Perennial invaded Highlands Brewery in Kirkwood as we tapped our Hommel Bier--a Belgian style hoppy beer. We thank everyone who turned out to taste our first offering, which we also poured at Microfest this past weekend, and will be featured at The Wine and Cheese Place Beerfest and The Brewer's Heritage Fest. More pics can be found here on STL Hops.

Evan Benn, the beer writer from the STL Post-Dispatch, also chose our Hommel Bier as one of his five favorites from Microfest!

We had a great time pouring our beer and interacting with festival-goers at Microfest. We also had an opportunity to host a beer, cheese, and salami pairing at the festival on Sunday using local beer and salami with cheeses from the Midwest. We paired our Hommel Bier with the Veneto from Salume Beddu, Urban Chestnut's Winged Nut with Marcoot Jersey Creamery's Tomme, Schlafly's Biere de Garde with Baetje Farms' Fleur de la Valle, and Highlands' Dopplebock with Roth Kase's Moody Blue.
