cslogoThis Wednesday, April 29th from 7PM-9PM, the International Tap House will be hosting a “Meet the Brewer” event starring Brian Neville of Cathedral Square Brewery.  For those of you that don’t know, Brian has brewed for Trailhead; installed the brewing system at O’Fallon Brewery; and is still the Head Brewer for Spanish Peaks Brewing Company in King City, California.

Brian will be on hand sampling out his newest beers from Cathedral Square all while providing a little knowledge along the way.  Be sure to head out to iTap and try some beer from one of St. Louis’ newest breweries.

itap.jpgBecause I couldn’t have written anything better myself (and because it’s 6:54 in the morning) details about the Duvel Night at The International Tap House:

Tuesday April 14th from 7-9pm Tom Gardner from Duvel Moortgat USA will be at iTAP for a beer tasting and meet and greet.  Join Tom and the rest of the iTAP staff as they sample some of the best Belgian and Belgian Style Beers in the world.  “They” will be popping 750ml Bottles of Duvel, Ommegang Abbey, Rare VOS, Three Philosophers and 12oz Witte.  On draught we “they” will be offering free samples of Hennepin, Maredsous 10 (maybe 8 if it’s in stock) La Chouffe and Houblon Chouffe.  This is a great opportunity to pick the brain of one of the guys in the USA who knows these beers better than anyone else.  Great beer, mix in some beer education and you’ve got yourself a great Tuesday night.
