Currently, American Patriot can be found locally at Dierbergs, Schnucks and Shop 'n Save grocery stores, as well as select bars and restaurants. Beal says the response has been positive so far, earning plugs from local media and even getting some national press via Time magazine. Even with things off to a great start, Beal says he is focused on the St. Louis market for the foreseeable future, with plans for a brewery down the road.

"I've been getting calls from all over and people wanna take it here and take it there, but I'm thinking it's just gonna be here in St. Louis for now," he says. "I'm not a big giant."

"That's my ultimate goal, to make beer, right here," Beal adds. "This is where I'm from, this is the city I'm proud of. I'd feel awesome [to brew beer in St. Louis], that's my brew right here."
