Nine Beer History
The Nine Network is proud to partner with 4 Hands Brewing Co., Feast TV, and members and friends of Nine to create an annual craft beer for the St. Louis community. We are proud of our city; the beer creation event is way of expressing that pride and our gratitude for the supporters of the Nine Network.
The 2018 Nine beer, On Air, was crafted by the Under the City Wide Team at our beer creation event at 4 Hands Brewing Co. April 29, 2018. The winning recipe uses 4 Hands’ Ripple White Ale as its base, and adds hints of lime juice, lime zest, cardamom, and blackberry sage tea.
On Cue was the winner of the Nine Network's 2017 beer creation event at 4 Hands. It was created by the Brewers Like You team. On Cue is a gose beer (a sour beer, pronounced gohz-uh) with hints of cucumber, hibiscus and Himalayan salt. It uses 4 Hands’ City Wide Pils as its base. The beer was released to the public at a party at 4 Hands on Aug. 6, 2017.
The inaugural beer creation event occurred in 2016. A team of Nine members calling themselves the Missouri Monks, created Cloud 9, a 5.5% American pale ale that combined raspberry, lime and vanilla to produce the sensory illusion of a grapefruit creamsicle. The base was 4 Hands’ City Wide Pale Ale. The fun culminated on June 25, 2016, when Cloud 9 was introduced to the public at a party in the Public Media Commons outside of the Nine Network.
Nine beer events are a partnership between the Nine Network, 4 Hands Brewing Co., and Feast TV.
