It is not an overstatement to say that it has been hell of a year for Third Wheel Brewing in St. Peters.
The brewery is nearing just its first anniversary, fresh from being named one of the top 50 new breweries across the United States and Canada, in the most recent edition of BeerAdvocate, the leading craft beer publication and online beer community.
It’s thrilling, exciting, and humbling all at the same time!” says Brad Wheeling, co-owner of Third Wheel Brewing. “We haven’t been open a year, and to be included on this list is pretty awesome.” Wheeling gives much of the credit to their head brewer, Abbey Spencer. He says Spencer’s unique spins on classic beer styles are what differentiates Third Wheel Brewing’s beer from beer at other brewpubs. “Her double IPA, ‘Dyslexic API,’ has lactose in it, and ‘Ophelia’s Wit’ adds a hint of rosemary, giving both beers distinct characteristics, versus others of the same style.”
Head brewer, Abbey Spencer, says “I’m humbled and honored to have made the list, especially after seeing all the other great breweries mentioned. Some of these breweries I’ve considered mentors or inspirations, but in reality, these are my peers and colleagues. It makes me take a step back and realize how far we’ve come and how proud I am of what the Third Wheel Brewing staff and partners have accomplished.”
So, now it’s time to party. June will a big month at the brewery, including the much anticpated 1-year-anniversary party which will culminate a week of events.
