tastes-red-black-white-icon.jpgWhile flipping through some of my email I came across a post from Confluence City about Steve Green, one of the finest beer nerds in St. Louis, and an event coming up at The Stable. Turns out that on Tuesday, September 9th, a number of St. Louis restaurants will be participating in Tastes for Tunes, a event benefiting KDHX.

You may be wondering, “What this has to do with beer?” Well, a number of brewpubs and restaurants with great beer lists are participating in this event:

I hope I didn’t leave anyone off of the list, but that’s a great line up of places where you can not only get a good meal, but a great meal as well. Not only that, you’re helping a good cause.

buffalologo.gifA lot of news recently about Buffalo Brewing, hopefully this is pleasant news for everyone involved. Sean Sweeney (no relation) one of the award winning homebrewers from the St. Louis Brews was invited to brew his Dubbel recipe at Buffalo Brewing about a month ago. Well, it’s ready to drink and to celebrate the occasion Buffalo is putting together a small get together on Wednesday, August 20th from 7PM to 9PM.

You can see photos of Sean brewing the Dubbel on the St. Louis Brews forum.

stlbrewsstlwine.gifIf you’ve ever been interested in homebrewing, all-grain brewing or if you’ve never brewed a lager this weekend provides you to get a firsthand opportunity to see brewing in action. Dave from St. Louis Wine and Beermaking will be hosting the St. Louis Brews homebrewing club for a homebrewing demonstration. Here’s some of the details provided by Dave:

Just wanted to let you know, the St. Louis Brews are going to be giving an all grain beer brewing demonstration at St. Louis Wine & Beermaking. The event will be held at the store (251 Lamp and Lantern Village, Chesterfield, MO 63017) from 9-3 and they will be making Oktoberfest and Kolsch. Several club members will be there with their setups. The event is free and open to the public, refreshments will be provided.

This is looking to be a beautiful weekend, may as well spend it brewing some beer with a great group of guys.

cplogo.jpgOn Wednesday, September 24th, The Wine and Cheese Place in Clayton will be hosting a tasting of beer from all seven Trappist Breweries. If you’re unfamiliar with Trappist beer, basically there are only seven breweries in the world that are allowed to use the Authentic Trappist Product logo on their labels.  These beers are sometimes brewed by the monks themselves, but most importantly they need to be brewed on the premises of the Monastery.

Anyway, six of the seven breweries now have beer available in St. Louis and Paul from W&CP wants to celebrate by having a tasting of beers from ALL seven breweries.  Here’s the info from the Wine and Cheese Place blog:

Wednesday – September 24, 2008

We will taste beers from all 7 breweries!
Chimay – 2 of the 3
Orval – only 1 made
Rochefort – 2 of the 3 (not sure which yet)
Westmalle – both Dubbel and Tripel
Achel – Blonde and Bruin (we are trying to get the Trappist Extra in time)
Koningshoeven – probably Quad and Tripel
and even Westvleteren Blonde, 8, and 12

The cost of this event is $25 per person and as you could imagine this will be a limited tasting with only 18 seats available.  Reservations are required and can be made by calling 314-727-8788. Payment required at time of reservation.

Newstead Tower Public House is hosting another in their line of monthly beer dinners with this dinner featuring selections from Bell’s Brewery. Also attending this event will be Bell’s representative James O’Connor & Sales Manager Marty Compton. The date of the dinner is August 20th at 7PM. The cost of this event is $40 and reservations are required. You can make reservations by calling 314-535-7771.
