Summertime Thirst Quenchers

Public House Brewing Company has several new beers to enjoy during the warmer days that lie ahead. Learn more about how you can quench your thirst during the summer season with the limited selection of craft beers below.

Mango Elusive IPA

This India Pale Ale is a variation of our beloved, year-round beer Elusive IPA. The Public House Brew Crew thought it would be fun to offer up a fruited IPA and it made sense to add mango to the citrus flavors and aromas of Elusive.

After doing a couple of 5-gallon batches, there was a decision to be made about when and where to add the mango fruit to the beer during the brewing process. The two test batches were released at the Rolla Research & Development Brewpub and we asked our customers to fill out a survey to give us precious feedback. We listened and moved forward with creating this version for you to enjoy now and throughout this summer, while supplies last.

ABV: 6.8% | IBU: 60 | SRM: 7

Strawberry Cream Ale

Public House Thorn and Heat lovers can rejoice! Allow us to present you with Strawberry Cream Ale for the season.

This delightful little number is another variation of a year-round favorite of ours. We took our Cream Ale and infused it with strawberry fruit. The result is a sessionable beer that presents mild strawberry aromas on the nose and a slight hint of strawberry flavor that compliments the malt notes you know and love of our Cream Ale.

With a slightly pink hue, this seasonal beer is crisp and clean with a wonderfully rich mouthfeel that will satisfy your thirst while kicking back and relaxing on your front porch during those warm weather days ahead. Yum!

ABV: 5.3% | IBU: 16 | SRM: 6

Dry Fly Session IPA

What is a session or sessionable beer? For those who are unaware, it’s a beer with a lower alcohol by volume (ABV) percentage. Meaning, it’s an easy-drinking beer.

With that in mind, the Public House Brew Crew’s love for creating sessionable beers drove them to craft Dry Fly Session India Pale Ale. They wanted to make an IPA with a lower ABV that still had the hoppy characteristics known of India Pale Ales. They succeeded.

With a 4.5% ABV, Dry Fly Session IPA has been dry-hopped with Citra and Amarillo hop varieties making it hop-forward, yet nicely balanced with aromas and mild flavors of citrus fruit that end in a clean, dry finish. You better snag a 6-pack of this beer featuring artwork by fly fisherman, Al Agnew, before it’s gone.

ABV: 4.5% | IBU: 45 | SRM: 2

Among the Willows Pilsner Lager

Drawing from our Midwestern heritage, the art on this pilsner lager features a gun shootout between a lone gunman running from an ambush by Union troops. This gunman has to go “Among the Willows” or evade the law.

Unlike the label art, this clean and crisp German Pilsner doesn’t break any laws from the German Purity Law 1516. (Reinheitsgebot). Among the Willows Pilsner Lager is refreshing and light-bodied with a light malt flavor that is balanced by medium hop bitterness. You can fetch yourself a six-pack of this seasonal, limited beer or find it in our variety pack with other Public House favorites starting in mid-to-late June 2020. Until then, come down to the watering hole (either brewery location) to taste it for yourself.

ABV: 5.4% | IBU: 40 | SRM: 2

You can find these beers at both the St. James Taproom and the Rolla R&D Brewpub, in stores that carry Public House products and online with shipping to Missouri residents here. Cheers!

Sustainability Practices at Public House

Did you realize that Public House practices sustainability every day?

In celebration of Earth Day, here’s a list of how our partner St. James Winery and the team at Public House Brewing Company take care of the planet we call home.

  • Recycle – cardboard, plastic, glass, aluminum
  • Solid waste from both businesses used as compost in the vineyards
  • Transition to LED lighting last year throughout both the winery and brewery
  • Electricity 208V 3 phase minimum through production facilities for energy efficiency
  • Move to aluminum cans for the brewery for better recyclability
  • Spent grain for cattle
  • Insulated tanks in the brewery
  • Reclaim water from heat exchanger for brewing water
  • Low-pressure boiler in the brewery – sized appropriately for energy efficiency
  • All to-go materials for food from the brewery are recyclable. Just say no to styrofoam
  • Insulated piping for glycol refrigeration system in the winery for energy efficiency
  • Vinwizard adjusts pump speeds depending on demand (Artificial Intelligence for energy efficiency)
  • Use of a fine-tuned irrigation and soil monitoring system so we use less water in our vineyards.
  • Beehive addition to our vineyard perimeter and adding three to four more this year. They help pollinate our cover crops
  • Wildflowers and other natives planted (cover crops) in order to encourage diversity of insect populations in the vineyard area to help with compaction, pests and some for aiding nitrogen levels in the soil
  • All wine tank bottoms filtered/reclaimed and solid waste composted to avoid stressing water treatment facilities
  • Vineyard pruning and hedging equipment redesigned to do two rows at once – lowering diesel usage
  • Using UTVs instead of trucks in order to reduce carbon footprint (less gas) to transport crew and equipment
  • New tractors run in economy – using half the diesel trucks for certain jobs
  • High-efficiency boiler in the winery cellar and bottling room

We really do try to be as eco-friendly as possible and are always looking for ways to improve. Next time you lift a pint of Public House beer know you are supporting a Missouri craft brewery that cares about the community and environment they work and live in. Cheers!
