If this was a marathon, you’d be on about the 16th mile!  You’re putting forth another strong effort for the 7th annual St. Louis Craft Beer Week. Keep it up!

We have over 150 events taking place this year making this the biggest STLCBW so far. What do we need from you? We need you to go out and make these events successful.  Over the next 9 days, I’m going to detail each days events. Do your part and get out and make these events a success.  

Just a couple of things to mention.  Thanks to the folks at Goose Island, we have an Untappd badge again this year, because we all love badges. Also thanks to our friends Urban Chestnut and the St. Louis Brewers’ Guild for being the presenting sponsors of STLCBW. We couldn’t have done this without all of the help from our sponsors.

Also, make sure to use the #STLCBW hashtag for all of your social media-ing during the event.

schur2015While doing our planning for St. Louis Craft Beer Week I’ve tried to emphasize our need for unique events. What keeps people interested an excited is creating experiences that they can’t get any other day of the week.

Four years ago my friends at Baileys’ Restaurants came up with the Schurcipefones event. Not only providing a beer festival to bookend STLCBW, but also a family friendly event providing great food, fun and beer. It’s definitely a unique event.

Last year for the STL Hops Anniversary Party, Dave Bailey and crew gave us four VIP passes to this year’s Schurcipefones event.  The gentleman who won this awesome gift at the Anniversary Party, David Burstein, could not attend and graciously donated two VIP tickets back to STL Hops.

What does the VIP Schurcipefones event detail?  It’s a pretty crazy package:

  • VIP Schurcipefones tickets w/ early access to taste all specialty beers first
  • Lunch at Schurcipefones from Baileys’ Restaurants
  • Receive a growler onsite to be filled at any Baileys’ Restaurant (restrictions apply)
  • VIP commemorative glass
  • Schurcipefones apparel

I’m giving you a chance to win the two tickets to this VIP tasting.  All you need to do is email contest@stlhops.com with the subject of Schurcipefones (spelling counts.)  In the body of the email you must include your favorite Baileys’ Restaurant Location.

A couple of quick notes:

  • If you’ve won something from STL Hops in the past 6 months, please be cool and let someone else enter.
  • If you can follow the bolded directions above. If you don’t follow the rules, you’re automatically disqualified.
  • You must be 21 or older to enter.
  • No multiple entries.

I’ll be drawing a winner for these tickets on Friday, July 31st at 9AM-ish.  If you don’t end up winning tickets, don’t fret. We’ll have more contests in the near future.

But if you’re not feeling very lucky, a few tickets for this festival are still on sale via Brown Paper Tickets. Here is the crazy good beer list they’ve put together for the event:

Brewer Beer Style
Perennial Blood Orange Suburban Beverage Fruited Gose
Perennial Apricot Blonde Belgian Blonde Ale
Perennial/2nd Shift/Side Project STLCBW Beer Week Blend American Wild Ale
4 Hands Guava Sessions Berliner Weissbier
4 Hands Passion Fruit Prussia Berliner Weissbier
2nd Shift Don’s Dirty Dozen Barrel Aged Brett Beer
2nd Shift Rye Bourbon-Barrel Aged LSD BBA Imperial Stout

Afternoon, all. We’re just three days into the 7th annual St. Louis Craft Beer Week and there are no signs of slowing down.

We have over 150 events taking place this year making this the biggest STLCBW so far. What do we need from you? We need you to go out and make these events successful.  Over the next 9 days, I’m going to detail each days events. Do your part and get out and make these events a success.

  • Taco Tuesday with Mission Taco and Femme Ferment

    6PM-9PM – Mission Taco Joint

    tacotuesdayRemember that time approximately one year ago when the ladies of Femme Ferment joined forces with the head dudes of Mission Taco to create a comical but slightly crude event raising awareness for breast cancer? You know, the one complete with pink beer, pink taco shells, and a nice donation to The Siteman Center for Cancer Research. Do you remember how much fun it was?! Well, we are at it again. But this time, it is a little different.

    You see, this past April, Claire Mendez was diagnosed with Sarcoma, a debilitating and rare cancer that often attacks joints by latching on to and eating away at the bone and connective tissue.

    This beautiful, energetic, unique lady has incredibly close ties to the STL craft beer community: Her family owns Perennial Artisan Ales, Claire is the OG in the Perennial tasting room and kitchen, and she had a small tenure with iTAP-Soulard.

    As devastating as cancer CAN be, Claire and her family’s hopes are high for a speedy recovery as she just finished her third set of chemotherapy.

    So, in honor of Claire, her husband Ben, their son Leo, and her wonderful family, please join Femme Ferment, Mission Taco, and the wonderful Saint Louis craft beer
    community in a fundraising event to help keep smiles on all of their faces.

    Femme Ferment will be pouring beers from Perennial, 2nd Shift, The Civil Life, and Side Project for suggested cash donations. Mission Taco will be running their usual food and bar program with an added percentage of cocktail sales going to Claire and her family as well.

    Bring your cash, bring your appetites, and bring your drinkin’ shoes! This is sure to be a fun evening of great craft beer, beautiful craft beer cocktails, and delicious food!
