Piney River Brewing Company

Late Spring at PRBC

It has not been a quiet week at Piney River Brewing Company.  Out here on the edge of the Little Piney River, over the past 10 days or so, we’ve celebrated Andy’s 6th birthday, we’ve finally managed to get all of our vegetable garden in, we enjoyed a Mumford and Sons concert at the Pageant in St. Louis, we finished the sub-floor in the future tap room, and we started to finish out one of the two bathrooms in the brewery.

We had hoped to have the bathroom complete before this weekend, but it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen.  However, we do have water lines running to a future sink, toilet and urinal.  Insulation is going in and walls are being covered with more recycled tin.  The tile job doesn’t look too shabby either, if I do say so myself.

VERY important to the stories that Piney River Brewing Company is made of is that we purchased one of Charlie McKinney’s anvils at the blacksmith shop auction last Saturday.  Our friend, Charlie, used the anvil to make a living.  We used the anvil for fun when we forged our BARn door handles.  When the BARn tap room is complete the anvil will be the coolest bar stop around.  So cool that you may want to buy Charlie’s anvil a McKinney Eddy Amber Ale.

Perhaps what is most important for the craft beer drinkers out there is that after a week “off” we have all five of our craft beers on tap for Saturday, June 12th.  Personally, I think the Missouri Mule IPA is tasting quite sublime, but why don’t you come out and try them for yourself?

We’ll be open from 1 to 5 p.m. on Saturday–filling growlers and serving pints.  Feel free to bring a chair and enjoy some sun or afternoon barn shade with a cool and very fresh handcrafted beer.  Cheers!
