People of the world, spice up your life! (Who doesn't appreciate a Spice Girls reference every now and then?)

In our quest to find alternative ways to enjoy our favorite craft beers, we are testing out another one of our 'Beer Cocktail-themed Surveys' this time with the Michelada!

And what better beer to use than our newest release: Castaña Urbana, a Mexican Lager with blue corn?!

In this survey, you will sample the base beer (Castaña Urbana) along with two variants on our Chef's house Michelada recipe. Give us your feedback, and then grab a 4pack of Castaña Urbana to try out your own Michelada recipe at home!

Ah, the IPA...craft beer's claim to fame and the brewer's chance to experiment with the ever-growing number of available hop varieties. Over the years, craft brewers have pushed the boundaries of this style with not only new hop blends, but also by trying out unusual ingredients and new brewing techniques. The wide range of beers that fall under the IPA style umbrella offer consumers a lot of variety, but sometimes it's hard to choose!

Well with this week's survey, you can sample a broad range of IPAs all in one place! We've compiled a selection of a few of our recently brewed, small-batch IPA's, each using various hop blends and brewing techniques. It's a mix of old and new styles -- we'd love to get your feedback on which brew is your IPA of choice!

With Summer temperatures upon us, we'd like to explore the classic Belgian Witbier! While these beers were quite popular in the Brabant region of Belgium in the 1700s, the style declined in the 1800s, and by 1960, it was truly extinct. Luckily, a determined milkman named Pierre Celis in Hoegaarden resurrected the Witbier in 1966, using a traditional portion of raw wheat in the mash and adding orange peel and coriander. His Witbier was quite successful, and the style has spread worldwide.

For this survey, you will be asked to evaluate this fabulous summer Belgian beer! Belgian beers offer a vast array of flavors and aromas from yeast, spices, and malt, and this Witbier survey is not different. In addition to our house Witbier, we have added two riffs on the traditional spicing for you to enjoy!

As we endeavor to create high-quality beers, we also strive to be respected for our actions to help us to be a better global and local citizen. Our “UrbanEfforts” span from the sustainability methods employed during our brewingprocess to working with local not-for-profit organizations to reach their fund-raising goals.

We can all agree that beer is great, but it's even better when you can support a good cause while drinking it! In our latest survey, you'll have the chance to sample three of our newest releases, each of them highlighting our important partnerships with local, STL organizations:

  • Grizzly Ridge Kölsch (Saint Louis Zoo) - The first official beer of the Zoo raises funds and awareness for their important conservation work and animal care.

  • Big Top Bavarian (Circus Flora) - In their 33rd season, Circus Flora is an amazing and unique St. Louis asset and this Helles Lager helps increase awareness for St. Louis' longest standing annual circus.

  • Reine Liebe Pilsner (Catherine Cares) - A Single Hop Pilsner brewed to raise funds and awareness for Catherine Cares' mission to provide support for families of children who receive a lift-threatening diagnosis.

Evaluate each sample’s aroma, flavor, and finish, and let us know which one is your favorite!
