JUST ANNOUNCED! Some of you may already see more craft beers on local shelves and in coolers from nearby Ste. Genevieve, Missouri's own Crown Valley Brewing. Crown Valley is expanding in the southern Illinois market and bringing their entire lineup of diverse craft beers to local stores, restaurants and bars. Popular brands like Big Bison Ale have been available sporadically for a while now, in bottles and on draft, but going forward you should find a lot more Crown Valley to like, such as Gunslinger Double IPA (which is brewed with beer-geek preferred hop varieties like Simcoe and Citra), Black Cabin Smoked Ale, Cowboy Coffee Porter (brewed with CV's own house-roasted coffee) and Country Carriage Cider - a craft cider that is a little more dry than sweet which is a welcome change from the cloyingly sweet ciders that are so ubiquitous these days.
Wednesday, November 21st from 5 - 7pm at Warehouse Liquor Mart - 829 East Main Street, Carbondale.
Friday, November 23rd from 5 - 7pm at Southern Illinois Liquor Mart - 113 North 12th St., Murphysboro.
So, see you all on Wednesday for a little pre-Thanksgiving celebration! Cheers!
