I finally got to attend my first St. Louis Brews meeting last night and had a fantastic time. Got to try some excellent homebrews and meet some extremely knowledgeable homebrewers. I want to thank them all for making me feel very welcome.

  • Stephen from Schlafly informs me that the Biere de Garde served at the 2007 Hop in the City festival was bottled into 750ml bottles this week and will be on shelves within the next two weeks.
  • Augusta Brewing Company is going to begin bottling and selling their Farmhouse/Belgian Ales in 750ml bottles. They’re holding a survey/contest to decide on the labels for these bottles.

Bill and I (with our significant counterparts) will be attending the Augusta Bottoms Beer Festival tomorrow, I encourage you to go too. If you’re unable to attend I plan on taking plenty of pictures and trying to get as much info back to you as possible about this event., it should be a great time. If you do happen to attend, if you a fat guy with glasses with an asian girl make sure to come up and say hi.
