707. Dark Horse Brewing – Smells Like a Safety Meeting IPA

My kids have vacation bible school this week, and it’s the one chance during the summer that my wife and I get to go out for a few decent meals. We decided to hit a fairly new place in town – Anju Above/Rustic Pizza – which I’d heard good things about. They had a decent craft beer tap and bottle list, and when I heard the name of this beer, I simply had to go with it! Location: On tap and served in a small...

706. Bur Oak Brewing – Trail Bender Wheat

After having a Nala Dog IPA from Mother’s Brewing at Quinton’s, our next stop was Addison’s in downtown Columbia, MO. They had beer from another local brewery on tap – Bur Oak Brewing. This was the only beer on tap from this brewery, and my friends informed me it was a relatively new production brewery in town. Location: On tap and served in a shaker pint glass at Addison’s in downtown Columbia, MO....

705. Mothers Brewing – Nala-Dog IPA

Well, the golf tournament we were supposed to play in got rained out again this year. So we went to breakfast and then hit Hooters for most of the afternoon. My friend Bill is a regular there, so we had a great time chatting with everyone on the staff there. After many rounds of Bud Select, we left to get more Booches’ burgers for dinner and then stopped at Quinton’s next door. They had this Missouri beer on tap, so I...

704. Dortmunder Actien Brauerei – DAB Original

After a long evening of hanging out in Columbia, MO for the evening – stopping at Logboat Brewing along the way – we went back to my friend Tom’s house to crash before the golf tournament in the morning. Tom is big into all things German, and has been there several times for Oktoberfest. He offered me this German bier he had in his fridge while we hung out chatting before bed. I have a bottle of this back in the beer...

703. Logboat Brewing – Snapper IPA

As I mentioned in my last couple posts, I’m in Columbia, MO for an annual golf tournament. Logboat Brewing is a new brewery in town, and my friends and I went for a few drinks. I thought they had a really nice brewery and rustic-like tasting room, but their outdoor beer garden area was great. I can tell that is going to be a big hot spot for them. I had their Mamoot, and their Shiphead Ginger Wheat earlier, so now it was time to...

702. Logboat Brewing – Shiphead Ginger Wheat

I’m in Columbia, MO for the weekend, and after enjoying some burgers at Booches (along with a local craft beer – Mamoot from Logboat Brewing), we headed to Logboat Brewery for a couple more beers. It was suggested by my local friends that I try their ginger wheat beer, which seems to be gaining traction locally as their signature beer.  The brewery is very nice and new, and the tasting room/bar has a nice rustic feel with...

701. Logboat Brewing – Mamoot

I’m in Columbia, Missouri this weekend for my annual pilgrimage to my alma mater for an alumni golf tournament with my fraternity. Readers of this blog will note that this happens the first weekend in June every year, and it’s also a chance for me to add a few new beers to this list. Readers also know that my first stop is almost always at Booches for burgers and beers. Normally I enjoy a Busch or Stag beer with my burger,...

700. Full Sail Brewing – Imperial Stout 2008

There’s a ton of stress right now in my life between owning/maintaining two homes and trying to sell one of them. On top of that, I’m having to interview to keep my job, deal with air conditioner issues at both houses, and other things too numerous to mention here. I chose this big beer to enjoy for the ceremonious landmark of #700 because I was given it by John Harris when I brewed with him at Full Sail Riverplace in...
