Polymath: What's in a Name?

There is always a story behind the names of our beers. Today, we tell the tale of Polymath Mixed Fermentation Saison

Finding New Ways to Do Old Things

By definition, a polymath is someone who has knowledge or skill at many things.

Without an ounce of personal boast, we named our spelt saison Polymath because the base recipe is versatile enough to work well in a variety of expressions: stainless-aged, pure culture fermentation, fruited, and in this case, a blend of stainless- and foeder-aged mixed fermentation saisons.

Where Does Your Tip Money Go?

Everything about Rockwell Beer Company is steeped in…. non-tradition.

From our building, which features bright colors and cantilevered shipping containers, to our 40-foot bar, which has no seats at all, to the fact that our employees do not accept gratuity, everything we do is non-traditional.

We pay our employees a living wage so our guests have no tip obligation when they visit our tasting room. Instead, we partner with a different charity or neighborhood improvement project every quarter and give our guests the option to donate to some great causes.

On Wednesday, we presented Operation Food Search with a check for $5,000 that came directly from guest contributions from the second quarter of 2019.

Alba: What's in a Name?

There is always a story behind the names of our beers. Today, we tell the tale of Seven Screws Double Dry-Hopped Double India Pale Ale.

On January 18, 2019, our Production Manager, Peter, slipped on a patch of ice while on his way to get some tea in the Tower Grove South Neighborhood of St. Louis.

The scene of the accident looks very different now, but imagine it covered in snow and ice. Remember how absolutely MISERABLE the weather in January was this year?

Baby Steps

“When is Rockwell going to open?”  

Soon.

As of right now, we are only a few short weeks to opening the doors at 1320 S. Vandeventer Avenue. After years of build-up, we are now in the final steps of the brewery transitioning from an idea that once only existed in theory to an organization with real people, a production facility, and a tasting room. That’s a beautiful thing. There is certainly a sense of relief that comes with that, but we understand that this is only the beginning.
