Missouri Mule IPA brewed by Piney River Brewing

Missouri Mule IPA  brewed by Piney River Brewing in Bucyrus, Missouri

Missouri Mule IPA is made at a small brewery located in a 70 year old barn in Bucyrus, MO. The brewers named this IPA for the Missouri mules that hauled hundreds of wagons across the West and packed supplies in World Wars I & II. For decades, mules were also the most reliable Ozark farm hands. Like a Missouri mule, the brewers at Piney River Brewing want you to rely on our handcrafted India Pale Ale. This IPA packs a hop explosion that will not let you down. Missouri Mule is made with Pale Ale Malt and Victory Malts. The hops used are CTZ, Cascade, Centennial, and Citra.

Beer Review from Beer Advocate
Appearance - Pours well, and only after fully poured does the head swell up and then holds for a while. Has a beautiful orangish red color with a very faint transparency. Looking closely, you can see thousands of tiny tiny bubbles. I wonder how it would appear in a snifter?

Aroma - Big citrus/pine aroma perfectly balanced by a big malty smell. Very inviting!

Taste - Follows the expectations of the aroma. Spicy piney citrus hops coat the mouth as the malt tantalizes the tongue. It's hard to imagine more hop flavor in a 7.5% IPA ale.

Mouthfeel - Wonderful tiny bubble carbonation adds to a refreshing sensation. The body is medium (but not heavy). The hops linger for a long time in the mouth.

Overall - A truly wonderful IPA, among the very best Missouri has to offer.

Piney River Brewing Story
Founded in 2010, Piney River Brewing Company is a microbrewery dedicated to making distinctive craft beers that celebrate life in the Ozarks. Joleen and Brian Durham, owners, have lived and farmed in Texas County for many years, and they have enjoyed craft beer for a long time, too.

Today, Joleen and Brian live up the hill from the Little Piney River that flows into the Big Piney. They benefit from multiple fresh water springs and a waterfall on their farm, and they continually find themselves drawn to the rivers that flow around their farm and throughout the Ozarks.

Joleen and Brian first made beer on the kitchen stove, fermenting it in the basement of their 100-year old farm house. In July 2010 they partnered together to revive a 70-year old barn made from red and white oak trees harvested off the farm, and Piney River Brewing Company was born.
  Welcome to Piney River BrewingThe BARn at  Piney River Brewing
The barn, rechristened BARn, is home to Piney River Brewing Company. Joleen and Brian began the craft brewery as a “nanobrewery”, brewing on a 10-gallon Sabco system. In the fall of 2011, a 7-barrel brewhouse with an automatic canning line was put in place for the microbrewery.

The BARm has a tap room that is open on weekends. Piney River brews can be sampled. Growlers can be filled. Pints can be enjoyed. Check out the calendar on our Events Page for specific information about the hours at the BARn.

You can enjoy a handcrafted Piney River Brewing Company beer when you enjoy a day in the Ozarks. Piney River Brewing Company distributes their beer in Missouri retail stores and restaurants through Grellner Sales in Rolla, Heart of America Beverage in Springfield and Joplin, and NH Scheppers in Jefferson City. Glidewell Distributing in Fort Smith distributes Piney River beer throughout the state of Arkansas.
