Rivertown Brewing Company Visits the BBA!

Jason Roeper and Randy Schiltz, the owners and brewers for Rivertown Brewing Company, stopped by our studio on Monday.  It was a blast!  They brought several beers from their lineup for us to taste and boy were they delicious!

They helped us with two reviews, Westmalle Tripel and Lindemans Kriek and then sat for an interview about Rivertown Brewing Company.

Bavarian Lager: Beerhall Helles History, Brewing Techniques, Recipes (Classic Beer Style)
One of the beers that they
brought was a Helles Lager.
Jason said he was a "style-nazi"
and refused to dumb down the
recipe to please light beer
drinkers.  It was a full-flavored
malty delight of a beer that I
think would make a wonderful
gateway beer to the world of
craft beer.
It's always great to meet people who appreciate good beer and are very knowledgable about it and these guys are both.  I had done plenty of research about Kriek ahead of time, but I think I learned more in the 10 minutes that I talked to them about it, then I did in several hours of reading - of course I am a very slow reader.

Rivertown Brewing Company is a relatively new brewery near Cincinnati, Ohio, but they are growing quickly.  If you live in Ohio, don't forget to look for them at your local grocery store.  You can buy their beers on-line from

Previously, we also taped a review for their Oatmeal Stout featuring brewer Chris Alltmont from Gordon Biersch.  In all, we will have four Rivertown-related videos coming out over the next two months.  Tune in and find out more about Rivertown Brewing Company!
