OK, beer lovers, I’m back with your rundown. Sorry it’s been a minute, but I’m back now with more beer news. Check it out.
Leaky Roof Meadery just launched down in Southeast Missouri, but they have plenty of mead here at home, too. On tap at the meadery, you’ll find 9 especially delicious meads:

Check them out tomorrow for Chad Graves and Jimmy Rhea of the Hillbenders. They’ll be on from 5-8pm. They’ll have food from Papa Murphy’s there, too. In addition, they’re teaming up with White River Brewing Company on January 31st to pour you some Old Mill/The Caller braggot blends that night. Don’t miss that event. Sure sounds like fun.
Springfield Brewing Company wants you to keep an eye out for their new packaging on Walnut Street Wheat and Paul’s Pale Ale. It’s pretty nice. Check them out on First Friday when they’ll have artwork by Evan Henningson and live music by Sabrina Deets and Madison Avenue.
