first_customers_picture.jpgThanks to the wonderful weather we’ll be experiencing this weekend, Augusta Brewery has decided to take advantage of it and open its doors this Sunday.  If you’re never been to Augusta Brewery, you’re in for a real treat.  They have a wonderful patio area and delicious beer to boot.  Here’s their official weekend info:

Due to the break in the weather, Augusta Brewing will be open this Sunday

March 2nd, from 11am to 5pm.

Please make a note of the following ~ the Boone Bridge will be closed Westbound – but eastbound should be fine. You can get to Augusta from 44 through Washington (Hwy 47/Hwy 94) and you can reach Hwy 94 from I-70 or the Page extension! See the article below for all the details

Our Hours this weekend:

Friday & Saturday 11am – 9pm
Sunday 11am – 5pm

It’s supposed to be 60 degrees on Sunday, seems like the perfect time to go out and drink some beer.

O’Fallon Brewery looks to be hosting yet another beer dinner and this time it’s at the Big Sky Cafe.  This dinner will be hald on March 5th and will feature a three course dinner that has been designed by executive chef Lisa Slay:

O’Fallon Gold Beer Battered Spring Rolls w/ peach red chile sweet & sour sauce
paired with O’Fallon Wheat

Duck Confit Flatbread w/ goat cheese, red onion & spinach
paired with O’Fallon 5-day IPA

Maytag Blue Cheese & Pepper Bacon Bison Sliders w/ Vermont white cheddar cheese & tobacco onions
paired w/ O’Fallon Smoked Porter

Anytime you see duck confit on the menu, that’s a must attend in my book.  While the menu looks tasty, the best part about this dinner is the extremely reasonable price of $37 per person.  Call 314-962-5757 for reservations as I’m sure this one will fill up quick.

For those of you that are looking to get your big beers on, Whole Foods has got an event for you.  Ric Syberg and Andy Snead will be hosting a Imperial Beer Tasting on March 5th at 6:30 PM.

Well, it’s still pretty bit chilly outside, so we thought we’d taste the heavy beers before we delve into the lighter spring beers. On this night, we’ll be serving up belly warming imperial stouts, deep barley wines, and some hefty double IPA’s. This class is always a sell out, so sign up quick.

This event will set you back only $20.  You can purchase tickets here.

For those of you who haven’t quite yet made dinner plans for Valentine’s Day, let me remind you of Newstead Tower Pub’s Boulevard beer dinner.  I was just send a copy of the menu for your perusal:

rotten_logosmall.gifThe Rotten Apple (which I should also talk about next week) is holding a Beer Event called Beer Lovers Anonymous on Saturday, February 23rd from 1PM-5PM. Here’s info directly from them:

We’re working with Specialty Distributing to bring you a beer tasting featuring exceptional European and American Craft brews not readily available elsewhere. Tickets are $20.00 and include a commemorative poster. Tickets are available at the restaurant or you can call 618/786-2798 to reserve yours with a credit card by phone.

The flyer for the event is pretty funny but may be crossing the line for those people who may be reading this site at work. Just to be on the safe side, it’ll be available for your viewing after the jump. continue reading…

I mentioned this class about a month ago, but I think I’d give you a quick update. As of the time of this post, there are only 2 spots left in this class. If you’re interesting in learning the basics of homebrewing, here is a great chance to learn with a great teacher.

Dan George of the St. Louis Brews is holding a homebrewing class on March 1st from 9AM – 12:30PM at Forest Park Community College. He’s an excellent brewer and an all around nice guy. I’d also suggest that you attend some of the local homebrew club meetings. You’ll get a chance to meet other homebrewers, many of whom would be happy to help you out with your first brewing session.

Learn the different styles and types of Beer. Beer has really developed in the past 10 years. There are more than 500 beers available in St. Louis now and there are many different styles.

Reservations required….314-727-8788

This event is $20 dollars and is sure to fill quick. I’ll probably see you there.
