Well the weekend is almost upon us, so that means it’s time for the STL Hops Round-Up.

  • Mike at Hoosier Beer Geek alerted me to an interview he did with Mitch Turner from St. Louis Brewery. It’s good stuff, be sure to check it out.
  • Dan checks in with an article about cask beer in the New York Times. As some of you may know I’m completely obsessed with the cask O’Fallon 5 Day IPA. If you want to try it I would suggest heading down to Iron Barley and giving it a shot.
  • Paul at The Wine and Cheese Place in Clayton alerts me to some new beers he has in stock:
    • Ridgeway Brewing – Bad Elf
    • Ridgeway Brewing – Seriously Bad Elf

Well you’re now all round-up. Next week is going to be pretty exiciting at STLHops. I’ll have a write up about last night’s beer dinner at Mangia Italiano and an interview with Dave Johnson from O’Fallon Brewery for starters. So be sure to come back all next week to check it out. In the meantime drink some good beer this weekend.
