Breaking the Silence

It’s been quite the year. Roughly a year ago, breweries across the nation were closing their beer gardens, their patios and, in all too many cases, their doors altogether.

In the Kansas City area, things now are starting to turn around. Patios that were once vacant are echoing again with the sound of laughter and clinking beer glasses.

Breweries like BKS Artisan Ales — 633 E. 63rd St., Suite 120, Kansas City, Missouri — have reopened their beer halls. Even better, new breweries are opening. Tall Trellis Brew Co., a cafe/brewery/taproom, is opening in Olathe, Kansas.

Though there is light at the end of the tunnel, the COVID-19 pandemic also has highlighted the need for mental health support, and one brewery in the metro is working towards this goal. 

Limitless Brewing — 9765 Widmer Road, Lenexa, Kansas — recently released a very special beer. Things We Don’t Say is a New England IPA clocking in at 6% ABV. This beer, available in four 16-ounce cans for a limited time, was brewed in collaboration with Hope for the Day, an organization dedicated to de-stigmatizing mental health issues and providing resources for suicide prevention.

The overall aim of this collaboration, which involved breweries like Eagle Park Brewing and Malteurop Malting Co., is to encourage people to speak up and break the silence about mental health.

Beer Releases

Alma Mader Brewing — 2635 Southwest Blvd., Kansas City, Missouri — released several beers this week, each available for sale online. Levels, a New England-style IPA clocking in at 7% ABV, is brewed with Citra and HBC 586 hops. Soft Commodity is a juicy pale ale clocking in at 5.6% ABV, brewed with Citra, Strata and Azacca hops.
