2012 at Piney River Brewing Company

In Start up on January 3, 2012 at 8:59 pm

We ended our year at Piney River Brewing Company with over 80 brews on the Sabco Brew Magic, about 100 barrels under our belt on the new brewing system, Piney pint after Piney pint coming off the Wild Goose Engineering canning machine and several happy retail locations that can’s seem to stock enough McKinney Eddy Amber Ale and Missouri Mule India Pale Ale.

Here’s how 2012 began at Piney River Brewing Company:

Yes, you’re seeing things correctly…that’s a brite beer tank full of McKinney Eddy Amber Ale, a fermentation vessel full of Missouri Mule IPA and a fermentation vessel half full of Bronzeback Pale Ale.

The amber ale and IPA are destined for cans and kegs for distribution.  The Bronzeback Pale Ale hasn’t been available at the BARn since August, but it’s all destined for kegs at the brewery.  We’ll be filling growlers and serving pints of our pale ale at the BARn on Sat., Jan. 14th.  We’ve finally got a stock of our five beers back on tap in the brewery!

Chairs will arrive for the tap room tomorrow, and slowly but surely we’re using our “spare” time to work on our tap room  and bar.  The average customer can’t tell, but we’ve finally organized a lot of our brewery “stuff”, separating Brew Magic parts from our big brew system parts, finding homes for all the tools that we use on a regular basis.  All of our kegs are painted with our logo and ready for use or are already in use.

Adding to the fun of the new year at Piney River Brewing are the grain-eatin’ girlfriends.

The girlfriends are having babies!

Dolly Varden & Pocatello had heifers.

And…new locations in Howell, Phelps and Pulaski counties are carrying our beer.  If  your favorite package store isn’t carrying Piney Pints, ask them to get some!  If there’s a restaurant where you like to eat that doesn’t have Piney River Brewing on tap, ask them to get a keg!  Grellner Sales is currently distributing our beer in many counties in the Ozarks.  To stay up to date on where to find us, just check the “Our Beer” page on the Piney River Brewing website.  We’re updating the page as our distributor provides information to us.

Thanks again to all of you for your GREAT support of your local craft brewery in 2011.  And here’s to 2012!
