Public House Branching Out Into Cans

We’re super stoked about our move from bottles to cans!

On Friday, June 21, 2019, our Brew Crew moved the bottling line out of our St. James brewhouse to make room for the new canning line. Yes, that means we are doing away with bottles. This is a sustainable choice, not to mention a safer one. If you drop a can of beer, it won’t shatter into a million sharp, jagged pieces. Worse case, you’ll have some spilled beer – which is sad but not as hazardous.

The plan is to kick-off the change with our year-round beers going into cans first and debuting new labels. Each beer has received a facelift with art created by Public House friend and local artist Travis Watkins. The art will be revealed at our Can Release Party on Thursday, July 11 at 5:30 p.m. at our original location – the Rolla Brewpub.

A military veteran and Rolla area native, Travis creates all kinds of art in all kinds of mediums. We were such a fan of his canvas works, displayed and sold in our taprooms, that we asked him to re-imagine our beer labels. He happily accepted the task and we couldn’t be happier with the end results.

Our hope is you, our customers, will like the change from glass to can too. You’ll finally be able to take our beer on the river or to other outdoor adventures where glass is prohibited in Missouri.

“Customer demand for Public House beer in cans became almost deafening in the last couple of years so we took the plunge!  We’re proud to finally offer our beer in the most convenient, environmentally friendly package there is,” stated Josh Goodridge, co-founder of Public House Brewing Company.

New package!  New labels!  New experience!

This Creature Beer & The Annual Public House Blessing

Each year, Public House Brewing Company releases our Barleywine Ale during the Annual Ale-Iversary at the Rolla Brewpub. As part of this tradition, we ask local clergy to perform a blessing for our establishment and for the beer.

This is an age-old practice born from a long history of trial and error when producing wine or beer. People understood fruit and grain could produce wine or beer when left to sit in a container. They simply didn’t have the knowledge as to why it would happen.

Superstition took hold if a batch of beer was unfit for drinking. The poor quality was mystically blamed on evil spirits referred to as brew witches or beer witches. To ward off such forces, brewers would request the services of priests to perform blessings on the liquid and brewing establishment.

Below is the annual blessing performed during the Public House Brewing Company Rolla Brewpub Ale-Iversary and the inspiration for this year’s Barleywine Ale – This Creature Beer. This ale has a warming quality to it and is described as very rich and malty with a caramel-like aroma. Stop by the Rolla Brewpub on Saturday, January 12 to take part in this tradition and to taste This Creature Beer for yourself.

ABV: 10.5% | IBU: 45 | SRM: 16

Almighty God…ever present…Father of all

Your watchful care reaches from end to end
And orders all things in such power
That even the tensions and tragedies of life
Cannot frustrate your loving plan for us

Bless this Brewing House and those who inhabit its environment
May it provide a place of comfort and communion to all who enter

Bless the Doorway of this place.
May it be a threshold to hospitality and good fellowship
May all who enter here do in safety and goodwill

May your Holy Presence reside within these walls
So that it may be filled with your grace
And enjoyed by those who seek its harbor

Bless the Common Room of this Public House
May it be a gathering place
Where acquaintances become friends
And friends grow ever closer
In their affection and respect
For one another

May your goodness fill the hearts
Of those who are her patrons
And those you have called to provide her care

Bless, O Lord, this Creature Beer,
Which thou hast designed to produce from the fat of grain;
That it may be a salutary remedy to the human race,
And grant through the invocation of thy holy name
That whoever shall drink it
May gain health in body and peace in soul

We ask these blessings in your name

Father…who is for us
Son…who is with us
Holy Spirit…who is within us


Bierleichen is the official Oktoberfest beer

Watch out, because Bierleichen! is coming for you! The beverage’s name came from the German word, bierleichen, which is often what people are called during Oktoberfest celebrations. Its English translation is “beer corpse” – hints to the beer drinking zombie on the front label of the bottle.

Bierleichen! is a distinctively complex Marzen-style Lager that is amber in color and brewed using traditional German ingredients. This Lager delivers rich, toasty and bready flavors that finishes with a soft, malty sweetness.

Bierleichen! is Public House Brewing Company’s official 2018 Oktoberfest beer. We welcome you to join us for our Oktoberfest Saturday, September 29 at the Rolla R&D Brewpub. There will be beer and wine to sample from all over the state, food and live music too! Interested? Purchase General Admission and VIP tickets here: to enjoy Bierleichen! and many others.

ABV: 5.5% | IBU: 25 | SRM: 7
