logo1Tomorrow is the first Friday of the month, so that must mean it’s time for another fantastic pairing of best place to get Neapolitan Pizza in the St. Louis area, The Good Pie, and a chance to enjoy some delicious cask beer from Schlafly.

This Friday, October 1st, starting a 5PM, a representative from the St. Louis Brewery will be tapping a cask of the Schlafly Wet Hopped Hop Harvest. They’ll be serving it until the cask runs out or The Good Pie closes.

Sure, you can get cask beer at the Tap Room, but you can’t get Neapolitan Pizza to go along with it! Head on out there for some great pizza and beer.

freshhopFor all of you hop heads out there, you know this is a very special time of the year, it’s hop harvesting time.  It’s the time when breweries begin receiving their 2010 hop crop and begin producing some of the best fresh hop beers available.

To help celebrate that time, Schlafly has decided to put on the second annual Fresh Hop Ale Festival.  This festival will be occurring on Saturday, October 16th from 12PM-4PM at the Schlafly Bottleworks and tickets will cost $25 in advance ($30, day of.)

The St. Louis Brewery purchased a bulk amount of fresh hops from Gamache Farms in Toppenish, Washington, which were then distributed to a number of area brewers who will create their own freshly hopped creation.  Here’s the currently list of participating breweries:

As this will be held in a format similar to Cabin Fever, tickets will be limited and this is sure to sell out fast. You can purchase tickets here.

Come get your schnitzel on and help Growlers Pub celebrate this year’s Oktoberfest.  The festivities begin at Noon on September 25th and will end at 5PM.  For $40 ($45 day of) you get to taste 30 different German beers and enjoy a German buffet.

Tickets can be purchased at either Growlers location.  See the flyer below for more details.

The Provisions Gourmet Market in Creve Coeur will be holding their Beerfest on September 25th from 12PM-4PM. This festival will feature over 100 different beers to sample.

This event will cost $5 to attend and the first 200 people to sign up will receive a commemorative tasting glass from Schlafly.  Click this link to purchase your ticket online. For more information, be sure to check out the blog post here.
