I’m pleased to announce that the winner for the tickets to the New Belgium Brewing Urban Assault Ride is Hunter Lanier! Congrats to Hunter and thanks everyone for entering. If you didn’t win, don’t be too upset, once again I have some cool stuff to give away soon.

I once again want to thank Joel Winn and fine folks from New Belgium for providing the team entry to this event! Should be a great event with some great weather on Sunday afternoon.

SixRow_logoEverything old is new again.  That’s not to say that Black IPAs are an old style.  In fact, they’re one of the newest styles taking root across the US.  In this case, the “old” part is that Six Row Brewing Company hasn’t brewed this beer since last year’s Fresh Hop Beer Festival.

Beginning next Friday, August 26th, Six Row will be putting their Black IPA back on tap at their brewery. For those of you that attended their Black IPA flight night during the St. Louis Craft Beer Week, well, you hand a little hand in creating this beer.

Six Row’s head brewer Evan Hiatt informs me that when people voted on their favorite dry-hop during the flight night, you determined that “Summit (hop) was a landslide winner.” So, you can expect to see this IPA have a big orange/tangerine aroma next week.

I’m happy to be reliving some of the classics, even if it’s just for a short time each year.

New Belgium Brewing is always doing some really cool stuff.  In this case, they’re doing their very popular Urban Assault Ride this weekend. If you haven’t attended in the past, the Urban Assault is a combination bike ride and scavenger hunt. Teams of two pick their favorite people-powered conveyance and ride all over finding clues to get to their next checkpoint.

Well, Joel Winn from New Belgium was kind enough to give us one team membership for this Sunday’s event. This $120 value will allow you and a single team member to partake in one of the most hilarious beer events in the area. All you need to do is email contest@stlhops.com with the subject of Urban Assault Ride.  In the body of the email you must include you favorite New Belgium beer.

A couple of quick notes:

  • If you’ve won something from STL Hops in the past 6 months, please be cool and let someone else enter.
  • If you can follow the bolded directions above. If you don’t follow the rules, you’re automatically disqualified.
  • You must be 21 or older to enter.
  • No multiple entries.

I want to thank Joel Winn and fine folks from New Belgium for providing the team entry to this event. This contest will end on Friday, August 19th at 8AM CDT when I will pick a winner at random. Good luck!

I’ve blabbed on an on about the Great Taste of the Midwest in the past, but it’s only because I love it so much. I’m not kidding when I say that you HAVE to go to this festival at some point in your life. It’s simply one of the finest festivals in all of the United States.

Laid back people, (usually) great weather, amazing beer, and Madison is a hell of a town. The events leading up to the festival alone almost make it worth going up for the weekend.

This was the 25th anniversary of the GTotM and it’s quite obvious that doing this for 25 years is the reason they do it so well. Everything is very well managed and everyone seems to have a great time.

So, make a plan to go up to this festival next year, you won’t be sorry.

royaleJust about every Tuesday evening, The Royale hosts an event where they guide you through the wonderful world of beer styles, breweries and beer history. This week they’ll be featuring the An Evening with North Coast Brewing. Here’s a quick synopsis of what will be on tap:

“A brewery that defined several styles of American craft beer over a decade ago, North Coast remains a proud representative of kickass California beer. And tonight we are featuring three–three!– of their offerings on draught and one in a bottle, a rare ratio indeed.

Old Rasputin–The quintessential American imperial stout served on nitro the way the brewers intended. Black and beautiful. 9%

Brother Thelonious–A Belgian-style strong dark ale with a surprisingly light body and that telltale Belgian fruit-funk yeast character. 9.4%

Grand Cru–This term has been used by wineries to signify their best selection, reserved for those with discerning tastes. Lately, breweries have been producing strong Belgian-style pale ales under the name, many with wine-like characteristics. This beer has a bright, spiced pear & honey character, with very little evidence of its ABV. Careful, now. 12.9%

Scrimshaw Pilsner–Our sole bottle selection, this hearty, flavorful, Bohemian-style pilsner lager will be just what you need to cool off after this brutal summer–or after a much more substantial first round from the list above. 4.4%”

The Royale is one the finest pubs in St. Louis to enjoy a beer and their employees are extremely passionate and extremely knowledgeable people. This is a great opportunity to not only enjoy some great beer, but to learn about just some of the great styles of beer and breweries we have available in St. Louis.
