Ommegang Brewery

Brewery Ommegang in upstate New York is famous for making a kind of dark, malty, Belgian beer, often with high alcohol content.

This style of beer has become increasingly popular among craft-beer makers—including local brands such as Schlafly, Urban Chestnut and Perennial.  

Phil Leinhart is Ommegang’s head brewmaster.  Leinhart is in St. Louis to provide a tasting of specialty beers this Saturday at Urban Chestnut’s second annual Wolpertinger Anniversary festival..

There's a little-known part of the White House website that allows average citizens to create online petitions. And in amongst the weighty requests to end police brutality and allow prescription drugs to be imported, a little item caught our eye: "Release the recipe for the Honey Ale home brewed at the White House."

As part of our series “A Good Year,” St. Louis Public Radio’s Véronique LaCapra headed over to the Schlafly Tap Room to meet up with St. Louis Post-Dispatch beer columnist Evan Benn, and talk about our area’s craft beer boom.
