Stone Brewing Co’s Greg Koch

During lunch I swung over to Royal Liquors on State Line and 103rd St. Greg was supposed to host a tasting and signing from 12-1p… I showed up right around 12 with no one in sight…

No worries, they were running 20 minutes late. So, I swung over to Taco Bell for something I’m sure I’ll later regret, then headed back to Royal to meet the man himself. I only chatted with him for a few minutes, as others were lined up to meet him and get their bottles signed. I did however get a few bottles signed, a signed DVD and this quick photo. Not bad for a lunch hour!

Tonight Greg will be at Flying Saucer and the Foundry, so be sure to catch up with him for dinner tonight. I’m hoping to make it to the Foundry and get a table before it gets too busy.

Welcome to Kansas City Greg. Glad you brought your beer!

Stone Brewing Co’s beers can be found at any liquor store worth visiting in Missouri. Royal Liquor and Lucas Liquor both have a large selection of Stone brews. Be sure to pick up an Arrogant Bastard while you’re there… it’s the #1 selling 22oz bomber on the market!

Southern Tier IPA


First things first… the house went on the market today. After weeks of cleaning, painting, packing and whatnot, she’s finally got a sign in the yard. So raise your glass and hope she sells before the wedding, which is 7 weeks from Saturday.

Now, on to the beer.

First impression… Not bad. It’s quite a bit better then their IIPA. A little piney and could use some more grapefruit or citrus, but is easy enough to drink one right after another.

On a 10 scale of IPAs, I’d give this puppy a 5 or 6. However, I do have a 9.9 to add to my list…

I had a New Holland Imperial Hater IPA the other night at Beer Kitchen in Westport. It was awesome. It was almost Hopslam awesome. Yes, you read that right. It was worth all $9 that the 12oz bottle cost. If you come across it, buy it, you won’t be disappointed.

Well, that’s it for tonight. I better finish up this IPA and move on to my Doodle Dubble, which comes from one of Missouri’s newest breweries, The Doodle Brewery.

Cheers and prost!
