eastsidebrewers

If you’ve been following the STL Hops Forums, then this is old news to you. But if you haven’t, the East Side Brewers homebrewing club has a new website.  It’s still a bit of a work in progress, but they’ll be featuring blogs, brewing information and their own homebrewing forums.

The East Side Brewers have really blown up over the past few months.  Make sure to visit the site to see what events they have coming up and stop by for some great beer, great knowledge and some really great guys.

Newstead Tower Public House is hosting another in their line of monthly beer dinners with this dinner featuring selected Belgian beers. The date of the dinner is July 29th at 7PM. The cost of this event is $40 and reservations are required. You can make reservations by calling 314-535-7771.

mattingly_84x128.jpgThe Mattingly Brewing Company may now be producing full scale productions of beer, but that doesn’t stop them from showing off what’s yet to come. Tonight, Head Brewer Drew Huerter will be offering his Sunbeam English Summer Ale Dry Hopped w/ Mt. Ahtanums. Drew gives a description of the beer:

Sunbeam Summer Ale is our English Style Summer Ale, a more recent arrival on the English brewing scene. It has a malt profile similar to an American Wheat, but slightly richer due to the malt varieties common to British breweries. Ample hops balance the wheat and barley malts, floral Kent and Styrian Goldings, citrusy Ahtanums and potent Magnums. The malt plays to the tune of Pale Ale, White Wheat, Honey and Cara-Stan. Our fruity house ale yeast brings the alchol snap and a dry-ish finish.
30 IBUs 5.7% ABV

Be sure to head out tonight and taste some of Drew’s excellent beer.

Here’s a list of what to expect over the next few weeks:

7/22 Sunbeam English Summer Ale – Dry Hopped w/ Ahtanums
7/29 Wall Cloud Smoked Steam Beer

Growlers Pub in Creve Couer will be throwing their first outdoor celebration titled Blues, Brews and BBQ on Saturday, August 1st from 12PM-6PM.  Not sure about what beers will be available for the event, but $35 for live music and all you can eat and drink is a pretty sweet deal.

highlandsHighland Restaurant and Brewing Company has slowly but steadily making changes to the beers that were previously being brewed at Wm. D. Alandale Brewing Company.  Headbrewer Dave Johnson emailed to inform me about a few news beers coming down the pipe.   The first new beer is one that I’m sure will be a crowd favorite around these parts, a West Coast style IPA.  Dave gives the details:

It is a west coast style IPA made with large additions of Cascade and Chinook hops, 6.2% ABV, 60 IBU’s.

The second beer, sure to quench the summer heat, is a new Bohemian Pilsner.

It’s made with Pilsner and Vienna malt and  large doses of Tettnang and Saaz hops for a crisp bitter finish. 5.2% ABV , 35 IBU’s.

He also let me know we has a Belgian Witte and a Strawberry Blonde in the tanks, so I’m sure we’ll see those hitting the taps soon.

If you’ve never had some of Schlafly’s Belgian offerings, this weekend’s Belgian Beer and Mussle Mania Schlafly Tap Room gives you the perfect opportunity to try them. Stephen Hale sent me over a list of some of the treats Schlafly has in store for this weekend:

  • Singelmussel.gif
  • Dubbel
  • Tripel
  • Quadrupel
  • Grand Cru
  • Bière de Garde
  • Witbier

Oh, I hear there will be some mussels too. This “festival” runs on Friday, July 24th and Saturday, July 25th from 5:00 p.m.-Midnight both days. There is no cost for the event, just show up and buy some mussels and beer!
