      Today, from 4PM to 6:30PM the Wine and Cheese Place in Clayton will be holding a beer tasting featuring Karen King of Goose Island Brewing. Here’s just a couple of beers that they’ll be tasting this afternoon: Goose Island 312, Goose Island Honker’s Ale, Goose Island Summertime, Goose Island Sofie, Goose Island Matilda, Goose Island Pere Jacques, Goose Island Demolition, and Goose Island Nightstalker. Additional information can be found at their blog.

      Cory from deVine Wines and Spirts, located at 2961 Dougherty Ferry Rd, holds a beer tasting every Wednesday evening from from 5PM to 8PM. Each Wednesday will offer up a few new beers for you to taste. Swing on by and check it out.

      Once again, if you’re a retail shop, bar, restaurant, brewery or distributor and want me to list your tasting, make sure to email me at mike@stlhops.com.

      So, a lot of people are saying that September would be a better choice, let’s try this. How about a date of September 25th? Would that work better for people?

      2009_05_16_1508I know people have briefly mentioned having another one of these, so I thought I’d gauge the interest from people that may not be posting on the STL Hops Forums.  For those that might have missed the last one, last year STL Hops hosted a beer tasting event at CP Pinball in South Roxana, Illinois.

      We rented out the space for four hours and drank all kinds of cool beer, played the jukebox, ate delicious pizza from Bigelo’s Bistro, and played some pinball.  Plus, we did it all for the low, low cost of $12. Check out some of the photos from Sauce Magazine from last year’s event, it was pretty awesome.

      Right now, I’m looking at August 28th as the potential date for the event.  I’m curious to know if there is enough interested to make sure that we can afford to rent the place for four hours.  If you’re interested in coming out, vote in the poll below:

      Last year, I showed you a photo of just some of the casks that Schlafly purchased to expand their cask beer program. Well, when you have this many casks at your disposal, it means you get to put on events showcasing your beer.

      In this case, it’s taking a cask of Schlafly beer and serving it at Bigelo’s Bistro in Edwardsville, Illinois.

      This Friday, July 30th, starting a 5PM, a representative from Schlafly will be tapping a cask of the very special Indian Brown Ale.  This beer was originally created as a wedding beer for Schlafly brewer Brennan Greene; it’s now become a annual favorite at the Tap Room. They’ll be serving it until the cask runs out or until Bigelo’s closes.

      Nothing quite like being able to enjoy some great cask beer right in your own backyard. While you’re at Bigelo’s, make sure to ask for the very awesome STL Hops pizza.

      SixRow_logoIf you love hops, you have yet another reason to love the local brewing scene.  This Thursday, Six Row Brewing Company will be releasing their newest creation, a Double IPA. Here’s a description of the beer:

      “Bigger in hop bittering, alcohol strength, and hop character than a traditional India Pale Ale, Six Row Double IPA is sure to please even the most discerning hop-head! Also known as Imperial IPA, this intensely hoppy yet very drinkable beer lets the malty characteristics take a step back allowing the hops to really shine.

      Brewed with almost two (2) pounds of hops per barrel and left unfiltered, the Six Row Double IPA showcases the citrusy and piney characteristics of the Columbus, Centennial, and Chinook hops. Served in a 10oz snifter. (ABV: 8.4%, Bitterness Units: 68 IBU’s, Color 8.0, Original Gravity: 18 degrees Plato)”

      Columbus, Centennial, and Chinook are three of my favorite hop varieties, so I can’t wait to give this beer a taste.
