The dog days of summer may be upon us, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t still enjoy beer. I think I’m going to try and make it up to the Rotten Apple and try some of the delicious draught beers listed in this week’s Round-Up. Do you have some beer related plans this weekend?

Stuff from around the web

  • I totally dropped the ball on this, luckily Dave picked it up.
  • The Post-Dispatch talks about IPAs and Cicero’s Beer School.
  • The Brewers Heritage Festival made a complete mess of Forrest Park, but it’s getting back in shape.
  • If you were concerned about the rice crop due to the InBev/AB deal, have no fear.
  • Beer vending machines? When can I put in a couple of quarters and get a draught pint
