augbotlogow_barley-small-web-view.jpgIf you’ve never attended the Augusta Bottoms Beer Festival, you’re missing out.  It’s just a nice time outdoors with beautiful weather in the Missouri Wine Country. This year’s festival is on October 2nd from 12PM-5PM, ticket will run you $25.

I do ask one thing, as Augusta is about a hour away from St. Louis, please make sure to have a designated driver, it’s the responsible thing to do. Here’s a run down of the breweries in attendance this year:

  • Square One Brewery & Distillery
  • Augusta Brewing Company
  • Crown Valley Brewing & Distilling
  • Garage Brewers Society
  • O’Fallon Brewery
  • Prison Brews
  • Schlafly
  • Highlands Brewing Company
  • Hill Brewing
  • Cathedral Square Brewery
  • Tin Mill Brewing
  • Buffalo Brewing
  • The Stable Brew House
  • Morgan Street Brewery
  • Buckner Brewing Company
  • Boulevard Brewing Company
  • Charleville Vineyard Winery and Brewery
  • Griesedieck Brothers Brewing
  • Anheuser Busch Michelob Specialty Brews
  • 2nd Shift Brewing
  • Six Row Brewing

Bring your lawn chairs and your sun screen and be sure to come out. While I’ll unfortunately be missing my favorite beer festival in the area, you really need to make the effort to attend this festival.   This is a pretty fantastic time.
