While our local brewers make some mighty fine beer, they’re also pretty interesting people. Some are funny, some tell a mighty fine story, and some are downright weird (this person knows who he is.) More than anything, they love talking about beer.

If you’re looking for an opportunity to rub shoulders with some of the area’s beer artists then you need to head out to the Brewers Summit at HandleBar this Saturday, August 4th beginning at 1PM.

Last year’s event was an excellent addition to the St. Louis Craft Beer Week and I’m sure this year will be no different. Tickets are $20 and will give you an opportunity to listen to brewers spin yarns about brewing all while sampling some of their wares. You’ll also get a free pint right before the question and answer portion of the event. Tickets are available at Brown Paper Tickets.

The breweries scheduled to attend this year are:

Charleville
2nd Shift
Six Row
Schlafly
4 Hands
Urban Chestnut
Morgan Street
Cathedral Square
The Civil Life

Come on out and meet some of these cool people and enjoy some great beer.
