While this probably could have been a news story in itself, some of you may now know that Jerad Gardner no longer is working with Amalgamated Brewing. But, for those of you looking for your Jerad fix, fear not.
Mark Pruitt from Bigelo’s Bistro knows a good opportunity when he sees it and has offered Jerad a job bartending on Friday and Saturday nights at Bigelo’s. What’s more is that starting December 4th, Bigelo’s will now be open until 11 or 12AM on Fridays and Saturdays.
Last I saw, Bigelo’s has Three Floyds Gumballhead on draught, seems like a good excuse to visit Bigelo’s and Jerad this Friday night.

I’ve made a change in how the beer tastings will be listed in the Friday Round-Up, it’s going to be a week’s worth of tastings starting with the Friday that the list is posted. So if you’re a retail shop, bar, restaurant, brewery or distributor and want me to list your tasting, make sure to email me at email@example.com.

Additional information can be found at their blog.

The 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 let his assistant brewer Jerid Saffell take the reins and brew up the Mattingly American Stout. Jerid gives a description of the beer:
Be sure to head out tonight and taste some of Drew and Jerid’s excellent beer.
First of all, big thanks to Schlafly, Stephen Hale, Andy White and Brennan Greene for helping out with this event. It couldn’t have nearly as successful without their help.
Second, thanks to Clayton for selling raffle tickets, we raised a ton of money because of his help. Third, thanks to Sean Thompson for taking photos of the event, I wish I would have taken some myself, but honestly (and I say this with absolutely no hyperbole) I was having so much fun I forgot.
But if you didn’t attend this is a small gallery of what you missed:
I once again want to thank all of the breweries and distributors, O’Fallon, Schlafly, Morgan Street, Buffalo Brewing Company, Missouri Beverage, New Belgium Brewing and Boulevard, that participated in donating time and beer.
I also once again want to thank the following places for donating items for raffles and giveaways:
After everything has been paid for, we raised an amazing $1841.65 for Stray Rescue of St. Louis. I was flabbergasted by the generosity of everyone involved and this money is going to a great cause. This is a huge gain over last year’s $800.
Thank you all, once again for a fantastic event and a fantastic year of beer in St. Louis. I’m looking forward to planning next year’s event already.
