Mike & Peter Save the Day

Bang!! Clunk!!! OH Explitive!!!
The week before Christmas with stores (and us) running out of Cream Ale and Drop Kick the bottling line decided it needed an unscheduled vacation. With no time to lose Mike, Peter and the nice folks at Jim Turnbull welding made the necessary repairs and got things up and running.
A sigh of relief fell over the brewery as Drop Kick and Cream Ale came off the line just in time for New Year's Eve.

Pub Warmer is Back!!

It has been more than three years, but Pub Warmer has finally made it back into the lineup. This Winter Warmer Ale is made with fresh ginger, nutmeg, allspice and cinnamon. We add all that to an amber ale that has just a bit of extra alcohol.
Pub Warmer is available on tap at the brewery and at fine grocery and liquor stores across Missouri. Look for it in Kansas soon.

Drop Wins Gold Medal

WBC proprietors Mike Coakley, left, and Corey Weinfurt stand in the brewery where Drop Kick Ale is made. The amber ale won a gold medal in the 2010 Brain of Brewers competition.
he winning brew, Drop Kick Ale, placed first in the American ale category of the Brain of Brewers contest which consisted of nearly 50 breweries.
“It may have taken four years to get to this point, but it is always nice to be recognized,” said Weinfurt. “I knew if I just kept drinking them we’d win something!”

Photo Award at O'Malley's

Last year our own Andee Weinfurt published a book of essays called "So This is Christmas... and other daily disasters." Her friends helped arranged for a photo shoot for the cover to take place here at the pub. We found out yesterday the cover art won the "Best in Show" prize at the 6th Annual Independent Creative Excellence Awards hosted by the Kansas City Freelance Exchange. The book is available at this link.

The wait is finally over. Weston Ruddy Wheat and Brew Labs #2 Hot Pepper Ale are both out on the shelves in the great state of Missouri. If you see them where you shop be sure to give them a try.

Weston Ruddy Wheat combines the Irish and American Midwest traditions. Amber to red in color and packed with flavor provided by a variety of wheat and barley malts this one has a nice honey amber flavor with the expected wheat richness.

Hot Pepper Ale is definitely our boldest flavor to this point. A nice, innocent golden ale is the base for this monster. More than 60lbs of peppers died for 18 barrels of this gem. Available in stores in 22oz bottles and on draft at the brewery.

Pizza & Beer

The new pepper beer is in the tank and getting ready and that calls for a celebration. So on Friday, April 30 we're having a pizza party. $25 gets you an all-you-can-eat pizza buffet, beer tasting of everything we brew and cover to the pub for the evening to see Connacht Town. If you haven't tried the new Wheat or IPA this is the big chance. Drop us an email, post on this blog or call 816-640-5235 to reserve a spot for this fun event.

Two New Brews Coming Up

Be a part of the WBC decision making process!
This weekend will be the introduction of Weston Ruddy Wheat. Our deep amber version of a classic American wheat. We think it is a fun drink for the St. Pat's season, but would like to hear what you think.
You will also soon be treated to our new Pepper beer made with a couple different peppers. It is based on our Emerald lager. There is much to enjoy with this one if you like it hot. Catch Mike or Corey running around and we will be happy to treat you to a sampler.
