Tap Handle #70: Anheuser-Busch - Mule Kick Oatmeal Stout

This is a great tap, it brings forth a chuckle or two from those who see it. The label on the barrel shows a mule kicking against a backdrop of a horseshoe and the state of Missouri (read on to find out why Missouri is on there).

Like the other regional beers we covered in previous posts (Tarpon Spoon, Skipjack, Demon's Hop Yard), Mule Kick Oatmeal Stout was the winning selection in an Anheuser-Busch "you choose it, we'll brew it" contest that took place in Missouri. Internet voters chose it over Confluence Amber Wheat and Pilot House Imperial Pils offerings. Thus, Missouri appears on the label, as well as its official mascot, the mule. A-B began brewing it in late 2006 at their flagship St. Louis brewery. Mule Kick is described as a medium-bodied oatmeal stout with notes of caramel, chocolate, and roasted coffee. Weighted average on is 2.51 out of 5.

Another local offering, another beer without a website...
