This is kind of a bittersweet post.  On one hand, we’re going to be able to enjoy the Big Black Beer Bash again this year.  On the other hand, it’s a reminder that Mattingly Brewing Company is no longer with us.  But, we can use the BBBB to pour one out for our homies.

This very special version of the Big Black Beer Bash is going to be held on Sunday, January 30th beginning at 3pm at the International Tap House in Soulard.  Why is this a very special version?  Well, it’s because iTAP in Soulard isn’t open on Sunday’s, which means the following:

  • iTAP will NOT be selling beer that day.  They’re opening their doors and letting us party.
  • This event is BYOB.  You must bring at least one beer to attend the party.
  • Keep in mind the theme when you bring a beer.  Make it dark, make it black.
  • Food/snacks are absolutely welcome.
  • Make sure to be respectful. iTAP is being very generous by opening its doors.

Big thanks to Eric Hildebrandt, Cory King, Drew Huerter, and of course Brad Lobdell and Sean Conroy for bringing back this very cool event.  Can’t wait for the 30th.
