Public House Brewing Expanding into St James

Public House Brewing

This weekend for the Easter holiday, we will be making the trek to Rolla, Missouri. I’ve mentioned Rolla before, but if you’re not an engineer, you may not even know where to find Rolla. That’s a shame, it’s a nice little college town with one of the better little breweries in Missouri. Public House Brewing opened in […]

Stone Go To IPA

Stone Go To IPA

You know how your coat, gloves, hands, hair, face, and living room smell after carrying your Christmas tree in from your car? If you ever want to enjoy that experience in a session-strength IPA, try Stone Go To IPA. The imposing aroma of pine cones billowed forth from the crystal-clear pale yellow beer the moment it […]

Fit Bottomed Girls

Arcadia Cocoa Loco

Arcadia Ales Coco Loco

This label don’t lie. Arcadia Brewing Cocoa Loco opened with a room-filling bouquet of baker’s chocolate and spices fuming from its off-white head. The flavors revolved around the chocolate with a shot of bitter espresso and smoothed by a creamy texture. Each drink ends with a pleasant and mild coffee-like bitterness. The faint molasses bite of a spice cookie loitered […]

Deschutes River Ale

Deschutes River Ale

Deschutes River Ale, a welcome session beer, smells much like one would expect from a hop-forward, Oregon-born beer: strong citrus and grapefruit aroma driven by American hop varieties. The flavor is surprisingly muted given the strong IPA-like bouquet. Grapefruit and some bubblegum flavors waft over a base of straw and grassy malt flavors. Each drink ends with a pine-sap […]

Santa Fe Irish Red

Santa Fe Irish Red Ale

Note: This is the first of my “catch-up” reviews. It’s short and to the point. And a sign of things to come. From the deep red can, Santa Fe Irish Red Ale poured a clear ruddy brown, with a firm, rocky head. It smelled very toasty, with some caramel and toffee aroma mingling in. This red had a slightly burnt […]

Clips of Faith Returns to Kansas City

Clips of Faith Kansas City 2013

What’s better than watching short, independent film outdoors on a blanket with a La Folie in hand? The answer is ‘nothing’ if you weren’t sure. New Belgium is once again bringing their Clips of Faith tour thru Kansas City and setting up in Theis Park, just a block south of the Shuttlecocks in front of the Nelson on […]

At the Quarter Pole: an Update of A Full Round

And They're Off

We have completed three months of 2014. That’s one-fourth of the young year. I set a goal in January to drink 360 unique beers in 365 days, take tasting notes, and write something about each of them on this site. I came up with the name A Full Round because it references both meanings of round: a circle of 360°, and […]

Browse thru their 600-some beers and try your best to filter it down to a six pack to go. Every member on their staff is a Certified Beer Server (level one in the Cicerone […]

Homework for Tuesday Night

Homework by MarkGuitarPhoto, on Flickr

We try to be a service to you, our readers, here at Beer Scout Headquarters. But today we’re asking for some help. A student at University of Central Missouri is conducting a survey about beer and drinking around Kansas City for his policy and strategy class. His survey ends tomorrow, so your homework for tonight is to answer […]
