Take Our Saint Arnold Survey

Here at Saint Arnold we do things because we want to, like brew the beers we want to drink and rationalize tailgating before Texans games as work. And every 20 years we like to find out find out what you think about what we are doing. The information from this survey will help ensure that we are here to celebrate our 40th, 60th and 80th anniversaries too.

So please take a few minutes and return this survey. We will only receive the amalgamated (our Word of the Day!) information so your responses will be anonymous. You can do it at work and pretend you are working. Or pour yourself a Saint Arnold and do it at home. Quite seriously, this is important information for us. It will keep us from having to get real jobs.

Take the survey here.

Amber Ale Dry Hopped with Liberty Available Now

To celebrate brewing our Amber Ale for 20 years, we are releasing three 60 bbl Amber Ale batches over the next few months, each dry hopped with a different hop variety (regular Amber Ale is not dry hopped).

The first release will hit stores Monday, July 21 and is dry hopped with Liberty hops. This is the finishing hop that we use on Amber Ale already and is known for its soft, floral character. So essentially this will be a slightly more intense version of the classic Amber Ale.

The hop aroma pairs well with the maltiness that comes from the pale and caramel malts used in the beer. The light fruitiness is the result of our proprietary house yeast, a signature of many of our beers.

Look for this extremely limited release at grocery and liquor stores in our 22 oz bomber bottles.

Bishop's Barrel No. 7 is Now Available

The seventh release in our Bishop's Barrel series is now available. BB7 is a Russian Imperial Stout aged in Woodford Reserve bourbon barrels for over 11 months.

The result is a beer tasting of a mix of spice, along with bourbon and chocolate emerging and lingering throughout. Our house yeast adds a slight creaminess, and a different roasted malt give this imperial stout a slightly sweeter, rounder character than BB1 and BB3. It is a pleasant sipping beer with the bourbon both present but not overpowering, and it is oddly easy to drink for a beer coming in at 11.3% ABV.

As with previous Bishop's Barrel releases, bottles are available only at bars and restaurants. Check out the Other Fun Stuff section below for a few BB7 release events, and keep up with the hashtag #BB7 on Twitter for more places to find it.
