- It's blackberry ale and it's going to be served with ice cream.
We are in the golden age of the beer float. The Rieger Hotel Grill & Exchange
(1924 Main) is hosting a Perennial Ice Cream Social next Tuesday, August 27, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. For $17, you get three brews from the well-regarded St. Louis brewery (they just brought their Peach Berlinner Weiss to KC): Saison De Lis, Woodside Honey Tripel and Barry Rye. Each of those beers will be paired with an ice cream from Natasha's Mulberry & Mott (which creates desserts for the Rieger) and served as a flight. Reservations are recommended. Call 816-471-2177.
In other news on Main, the Rieger launched a new bar menu earlier this month, and the first thing on your to-eat list should be the "duck fat kettle corn." For those who tweet, Rieger chef and owner Howard Hanna is now on Twitter.
