The 2012 St. Louis Brewers Heritage Festival marks the sixth anniversary of the event. This festival gives you just an example of how far things have come in the St. Louis beer community.

The original festival in 2007 featured 7 local breweries which featured over 50 different beers.  The 2012 festival will feature 19 breweries in the St. Louis metro area pouring 88 different beers.

This year’s festival will be taking place this weekend at it’s new location in Ballpark Village with four different sessions:

Friday, June 15, 5PM-9PM
Saturday, June 16, 11AM-3PM
Saturday, June 16, 5PM-9PM
Saturday, June 17, 11AM-3PM

Tickets for this event will cost you $30 in advance and $35 day of festival. They can be purchased from the STL Brewers Heritage Store.  I also plan on giving away a few sets of tickets over the next few days.  For your chance to win, be sure to watch the front page later today and also make sure to watch the STL Hops Twitter feed and the Facebook page.
