Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of the Beer of the Week! As always, the Beer of the Week is originally presented on Arrowhead Pride Radio on 610 Sports Radio, as part of my “Defense and Beer of the Week” segment.
After last week’s aggressively-hoppy offering, I decided to bring it back to something the non-hopheads could enjoy. That means this week’s Beer of the Week is none other than Mother’s Brewing Co.’s Three Blind Mice!

Coming out of the fermenters of Mother’s Brewing Co. in Springfield, Missouri, this 5.5% Brown Ale is perfect for old and new craft brewers alike. A combination of three types of ale recipes (American Brown, German Altbier, and Irish Red), this Brown isn’t your typical fare. Toffee and chocolate notes give way to a dry, sweet finish with just a hint of hops. It’s an utterly drinkable beer, and one perfect with a hearty meal or after mowing the lawn.
Mother’s Brewing Co. is a wonderful brewery that really encapsulates the spirit of what it means to be a craft brewery and also be a cornerstone in the community. Buying a recently closed Butternut Bread factory building in downtown Springfield in 2010 and converting it into a brewery, Mother’s has established themselves as the place to be when you’re in town. A massive backyard for movies, yoga, and food trucks sits on the site for ease of enjoyment of the Springfield downtown area.
And it’s not just Three Blind Mice that they make well. Mother’s Lil’ Helper, an American IPA is a great year-round IPA. One of my favorites, Winter Grind, a coffee stout, is perfect during the winter months. And MILF, arguably their best beer and an Imperial Stout, is clamored over by beer nerds all over the Midwest.
Mother’s was also kind enough to send us some of their new literature for Three Blind Mice, showcasing their new packaging coming out in August!
Make sure to swing by your local liquor store and scoop up some of Mother’s Three Blind Mice this weekend, and you can be a Mother Lover like me, too!
Check back here this time next week for the new Beer of the Week!
