Irene and I attended that first Starr’s Beer Dinner on Wednesday, April 30th and I thought I’d provide some photos for you. But before I post the photos, here are some quick thoughts:

  • All of the food was pretty good. The pairings were excellent in some cases and missed the mark on others. But having two beers per course to pair them was a nice addition.
  • Five courses and the amount of food they gave us was a bit much. By the time dessert rolled around I was stuffed.
  • Bud Starr mentioned to me that he’ll probably be doing all of his beer dinners with different beers from different breweries each time.
  • If you didn’t make this one, I strongly recommend making the next one, it was a great, great time.

stlouis_festlogo.jpgI’m pleased to announce that the winner for the two tickets to the Saturday afternoon session of the St. Louis Brewers Heritage Festival is Wesley Crawford! Congrats to Wesley and thank you everyone for entering. If you didn’t win, don’t be too upset, I’m going to have a few more things to give away in the next few weeks.

I once again want to thank Dan Kopman from Schlafly Beers and Jay Cunningham from Anheuser-Busch for providing the tickets to this event. Hope to meet a lot of you at the festival! I’ll be posting a lot of information about it on this blog this weekend!
