THURSDAY, MAY 26, 2016

After the Cubs sweep the Cardinals (series ends May 25), you can come by and raise a glass of truly great beer– even if it does come from the waters of St. Louis!  Schlafly is a great beer and we’re proud to feature it on Thursday, May 26.

You can also get your groove on with DJs Mr D & Teebot starting at 9PM. Chef Matt O’Neill has a fantastically delicious menu to pair up with these beers so come on in and make it a great Thursday night out!

Schlafly Beer
St. Louis, Missouri

Yakima Wheat Ale
5.0% ABV
25 IBU
Schlafly Beer Yakima Wheat Ale is a hoppy wheat beer brewed with American hops from
the Yakima River Valley in Washington State. The blend of wheat and
barley lends a touch of toffee sweetness while the hops contribute the
spiciness of juniper and pepper. Altogether they create a crisp,
refreshing beer with a hoppy bite.

Food Pairing:

Octopus and Melon
octopus tentacles fried in a light rice flour batter / watermelon, olive, and mint salad / feta aioli.


 

Double Bean Blonde
Blonde Ale
6.3% ABV
25 IBU
Schlafly Beer Double Bean BlondeDarkness and romance lurk beneath the golden exterior of this ale that
combines the prominent flavors and aromas of coffee and the smooth
richness of chocolate. Simple, straightforward malts and hops to keep
the focus on the notable characteristics of the featured ingredients.
After the beer is fermented it rests on cocoa nibs sourced from
Ghana—one of the world’s largest chocolate exporters. In the final
stage of production an addition of a cold coffee toddy made from
filtered water and finely ground beans roasted by St. Louis’ own
Kaldi’s Coffee and sourced directly from the Shiwanda Estate in
Africa’s southeastern Tanzania.

house smoke pork shoulder, pickle, and Swiss cheese melted in an egg batter-dipped brioche. Served with fries, yellow BBQ sauce, cherry preserves


 

Grapefruit IPA
India Pale Ale
5.0% ABV
40 IBU
This a fruit beer- not a fruit-flavored beer- whose wort is mixed with pounds of grapefruit
puree to allow the sugar to ferment out, leaving the tropical aromas
of the fruit. American Chinook, Cascade and Citra hops were selected
for their distinct citrus and floral attributes, add American ale
yeast that brings a layered fullness to the beer, making this
dry-hopped IPA notable for its bold flavor, tart characteristics, and
approachable hoppiness.

Food Pairing:

IPA battered Hearts of Palm Tacos (3)
crispy battered hearts of palm / jicama slaw / arugula / corn tortillas /  spicy Jalapeño aioli.


 

American IPA
India Pale Ale
7.2% ABV
65 IBU
Schlafly Beer American IPA gets its bold hop flavor from 100% American hops and its
deep gold and full body from pale and crystal malted barley. A blend
of Amarillo, Centennial and Simcoe hop varietals imparts AIPA with
bitterness and prominent aromas of citrus and fruit. Schlafly brewers
select these hops on an annual pilgrimage to the hop farms of Pacific
Northwest.

Food Pairing:

Andouille Hush Puppies
andouille and green onions fried in a cornmeal batter. Served with garlic remoulade.

Belgian Beers

Rare Vos
Amber Ale, 6.5% ABV
A clever fox knows when to stop, and at the end of a long day the
reward of choice should be a Rare Vos, also know as the Sly Fox. Named
after a Brussels pub famous for bicycling contests and pigeon races,
Rare Vos is a mpst quaffable brew. It’s well balanced on every front
with slightly spicy notes from grains of paradise and sweet orange
peel. This Belgian-Style cafe ale is mellow, spicy

La Chouffe Houblon
IPA Tripel, 9% ABV
Houblon Chouffe was brewed for the first time in 2006. It is an Indian
Pale Ale, characterised by a harmonious balance between a pleasant
fruitiness and pronounced bitterness by using three types of hops.
Houblon Chouffe is an unfiltered beer which is refermented both in the
bottle and in barrels.

Tripel
9.2% ABV
This limited edition Belgian-Style Tripel honers Belgian Independence
Day- July 21, 1831. In a new world twist on an old world style,
joining Ommegang innovation with Belgian tradition in celebration of
the Belgian revolution and the American craft beer revolution. Dry
hopped with Mandarina Bavaria hops, this unique beer offers fruity
aromatics, well integrated honeyed malt character, and a delightful
overlay of tangerine and sweet citrus notes.

Duvel Tripel Hop
Hopped Tripel, 9.5% ABV
Duvel is traditionally brewed with two hop varieties. Duvel Tripel Hop
is brewed with three hop varieties and each year the third hop is
changed to provide its own unique taste and aroma. This keeps the
final flavor profile surprisingly exciting for any true beer lover.
For 2015 brewers selected the aromatic hop EQUINOX from the USA.
Thanks to the third additional hop variety Equinox, the 2015 selection
is characterized with the aroma of grapefruit, lemon and a hint of
fresh green pepper. Equinox hops are added again during ‘dry-hopping’,
extracting additional hop aromas into the beer. The higher aromatic
intensity rounds out the beer, backing the final alcohol content of
9.5%.

Expected thank you note from Dad:

Dear Kids,

Thank you so much for my most amazing Father’s Day. The only thing that can come close to the warmth and love I have for you is the Man-Brunch at Prairie Moon. The Father’s Day brunch buffet was tremendous. I could have stayed there grazing all day. I do appreciate you bringing a wheelbarrow to roll me to the car! That was considerate of you, but, quite frankly, it is testimony to my quality parenting.

I will never forget the smoked meats, fresh seafood, salads, FREE BEER, Malted Mooncakes…. HOT DOG CART and so much more.

Thank you for the great day and great meal. You made a wonderful memory for me.

Love,

Dad
