Bloody Missouri

Free State bottles have been freed from Kansas and are making the trip across the state line to Missouri for the first time. For all the silly Missourians who are afraid to cross over into the hallowed ground of Kansas, a trip to your neighborhood package store or even grocery store* is all you need to do to get your hands on the wonderful brews from Free State.

*Kansans, you too can take part in this buying real beer in your local grocery store if you call your state representative and tell them to eliminate 3.2 beer sales in the state. It's really that simple, they're all ready to vote on it, Senate bill 54 is being debated now.

  3. It is not done yet, check out the link and call your KS Senate representative if you support this. The senate has to pass a vote in favor now to bring this to reality!

  4. My fave of the Free State line-up is the Copperhead Ale and Oatmeal Stout; just not a fan of wheat beers. Bull, please keep us advised of the final outcome (when?) of SB54.

  5. My favorite at Free State is Josiah Miller IPA--but think it's only available in kegs. Can you list the brands that will be sold in bottles?

  6. Copperhead, Ad Astra, Golden Wheat and Oatmeal Stout are the ones available. I look forward to the day when they expand the lineup.

  8. Am I the only person very unimpressed with Free State's beers? Tried a couple on tap at Waldo Pizza and they are completely ordinary.

    First time commenter... love this blog!

  9. There is nothing wrong with beer that tastes like ordinary beer.

    If you want the crazy stuff from Free State you have to go to the pub.

  10. It is not going to pass, I talked to senate members today. The senate bill was pushed through by people getting campaign money from places like dillons, wal-mart, etc. Rich getting richer I say, ps the person who runs this blog needs to check his facts. I brew beer for a living and am wondering how millions of dollars of revenue is supposed to spring out of the already exsisting kansas drinkers. The numbers you put on this site came from Kansas shool of economics who just got millions from who else but Kroger foods, aka dillons. If your afraid of getting 3.2 beer from kansas, it is sold in liquor stores. And it wont be 3.2 in missouri. I am sorry people from missouri have a subpar education.

  11. I always love people who insult the education of others while making numerous spelling and grammatical mistakes.

    The additional revenue is likely to come from KS residents no longer going into MO, additional purchases because of convenience, and state taxes from any new jobs created. I don't think anyone on this blog agrees with the actual monetary figures being proposed.

  12. Chimpotle makes the same points I was going to make. But, I just want to stress this point, if you question someone else's education while making a pretty poorly thought out point with multiple misspellings, using your instead of you're, etc., you only minimalize your point.

    Buried deep in your little rant was a decent point, the economic study was bought and paid for by Kroger. I think Wal-Mart may have paid a little bit for it too. I discounted those numbers on the post linked on this post, so your postscript was unnecessary.
