Columbia brewers release bicentennial beer made with local ingredients

You can crack open a cold one that’s made with ingredients grown right here in mid-Missouri.  Logboat Brewing in Columbia has released a bicentennial beer to celebrate the city’s 200th birthday.  The brewers wanted to use local honey in the Como200 Blonde Ale and approached Clay Stem, owner of Stem to Table Farm.  Stem says the brewers needed about 250 pounds of honey, which he couldn’t provide, so he reached out to his buddies at the Boone Regional Beekeepers Association.

“And they said ‘Heck, yeah,’ they were super excited to be a part of it as well. So we were able to get enough honey together and dropped it off to Logboat and they worked their magic from there.” 

Columbia has been celebrating its bicentennial with different events this year and is planning a three-day downtown celebration over the 4th of July weekend.
