Get your livers ready, because today is the day that we start the 2011 St. Louis Craft Beer Week. I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention some of the events that are taking place all week long at some various establishments.

I, once again, cannot begin to stress enough how important it is for all of us to help make this event successful. We have over 55 events this year, so it’s important to get the word out about this week.

If you love beer and I know you all do otherwise you wouldn’t be here, it’s time to show it. Anyway, here’s a rundown of the events taking place all week long:

Week Long Events
