Woo Hoo! I took this 180 beers in 180 days challenge two years ago (see previous posts) … and I ended up making it to 250 beers/250 days. This time … I’m going for the full year! (I have to pad my Beer Drinker of the Year resume … (haha).
The first beer? It is a Perennial Artisan Ales work … the Hommel Bier.
Yep, I went for the growler! Beer advocate gives this beer an 89 and I have to agree. It is almost a match to the Poperinge Hommel Ale (almost) … I just close my eyes and I’m back at the Hotel de la Paix enjoying one on draft! But I digress … I liked this beer so much I did a taste test while at Tripel in Lafayette Square.
If you are in St Louis, I really recommend a visit to Perennial. They are a little difficult to find (the GPS address takes you to the backside of the place … just drive around the block!) The folks are awesome, they are really passionate about their brews and you can tell. The Head Brewer has some side projects on-going and they usually have something really special on tap. Worth a Trip! Here’s a few pics of the place …
Enjoy! Beer Mentor
