Schlafly No. 20 Volume 4 - Southern Hemisphere IPA

Today the fourth and final beer in Schlafly's 20th Anniversary Series hits shelves on the Missouri side. Called Southern Hemisphere IPA, this beer is described by Schlafly as "kettle-hopped and dry-hopped with a unique hop from Tasmania, called Galaxy.   This strong, aromatic hop is distinctly different from traditional Pacific Northwest varieties."

Stores receiving Southern Hemisphere include Lukas Liquor, Royal, and all Gomer's locations. I've been informed that there is very little of this beer to go around, so if you are hoping to get your hands on it, keep an eye and ear out and act quickly once you find out it has arrived at any of these stores. It will be hitting the Kansas side at some point as well, but it sounds like there will be even less available in Kansas than there will be in Missouri.

Happy hunting!

  2. Thanks for the heads up. I have been pondering potential selections to ring in the New Year with. May have just found it...

  3. This is so last week. ;) I was at the brewery on the release day. Very good brew. I brought back a couple growlers, but those only lasted like two days. Too bad it's limited.

  4. Schlafly is now owned by the St Louis Brewery? When did this occur?

  5. They are one and the same, Saint Louis Brewery was founded by Tom Schlafly. They use Schlafly for the branding of all of their beers.

  6. I am gonna see if I can track that down! I read somewhere that at their recent tasting they had a very limited imperial stout. Would have loved to had a pint or 2 of that! :)

  7. I went there for a pit stop on a road trip on xmas eve, had this one by chance and came away with a growler. It is hard to desribe the hope, it is like the sweet part of citrus fruits without the acidic component... or something. Anyway, if you can, check this one out.

  8. Jason, I agree, that's a good way to describe it. Those Galaxy hops provided a really nice, clean citrus taste. This was actually one of my favorite Schlafly brews I've ever had, it's a shame that it is so limited.
