ciceros.jpg Cicero’s Italian Restaurant begins their Winter Beer School semester this Wednesday from 5:30-6:30PM and a second class from 7PM-8PM. Cicero’s Beer School provides background about beers and beer styles usually directly from people directly in the beer industry. It’s perfect opportunity to learn more about a style you’re unfamiliar with or to just brush up on a style you haven’t enjoyed in a while.

This week’s school is being hosted by Phil Wymore owner of Perennial Artisan Ales. Phil will be on hand to discuss and sample some Southside Blonde, Saison de Lis, Hommelbier, and Black Walnut Dunkel. Go out and take advantage of one of the few places where you can drink and learn!

If you can’t make it out to the Beer School, you can check out all of the classes via podcast at Cicerosbeerschool.com.

While it’s fun to be on the hunt to try and find that special or fun beer, it can be pretty tiring. Well, you can stop running all around town and visit Llywelyn’s Pub in Webster Groves to see something cool on tap. Llywelyn’s is starting a new program that they’re calling “A Brew You Never Knew.”

Each Wednesday, Llywelyn’s will feature a single beer on draught that may have been overlooked or in some cases is the only draught version of that beer in town. It’ll be a chance to re-visit an old favorite or even discover something you’ve never had before.

This week Llyweyln’s will be featuring the Deschutes Hop Henge on draught. This beer will only be available at the Webster Groves location and will only be on tonight. If you’re looking for something special without all of the lists and missed opportunities, make sure to stop into Llywelyn’s tonight.

If you love beer and can stand to be around clowns (and I don’t mean the clowns that normally attend beer festivals) then maybe you’d love to win some tickets to the 4 Hands Brewing Lupulin Carnival. Thanks to the fine folks at 4 Hands, I have two tickets to give away for this event.

Normally, we’d just pick a random winner, but I’m feeling a bit saucy today. So, we’re going to pick the most creative hop-based clown name or hop-based carnival ride. For example: Citra the Clown or the Calypso Cyclone. Only, don’t use those, because they suck.

Most creative name (based on what I think is awesome) wins two tickets to this Saturday’s festival. Send an email to contest@stlhops.com with the subject of Lupulin Carnival and include your Clown/Carnival Ride name in the body of the message. I’ll pick the best winner on Thursday, March 1st at 9AM. Standard contest rules apply:

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

Good luck and don’t let me down.

I’ll be perfectly honest, I’m not a huge fan of the Schlafly Quad. It’s not a bad beer, it’s just not my cup of tea. But I’m in love with the collaboration Bourbon Barrel Quad that Schlafly did with the Wine and Cheese Place. It had this wonderful aroma like freshly baked cookies.

For those lucky few that attended the release party of this beer at The Wine and Cheese Place, you had the chance to try the regular Quad next to the BBQ and the differences were just astounding. I hope I don’t sound like a braggart, because that’s not my intention. I just kind of want to give credit where credit is due. It’s a delicious beer. Here are a few photos from the event:

In case you missed it, The Civil Life Brewing Company has chosen Missouri Beverage as their Missouri distributor. It’s been a long time coming, but you’ll soon be able to enjoy Civil Life beers at some of your favorite pubs around town.

To kick off this momentous occasion MOBev and Civil Life have planned a few exciting kick-off events around town. Here’s a rundown of everything you’ll be able to do this week:

Tuesday, February 28th – Bailey’s Range / Bridge Tap House – 5:30PM
The first event in this Civil Life extravaganza also marks the first of Dave Bailey’s new monthly dining events called Community Table. Each month Dave will have a charity dinner with all of the proceeds going to a local St. Louis charity. The cost of entry is $20 with all of the proceeds going to St. Louis Effort for AIDS. Your entry fee will get you unlimited access to this very impressive menu:

  • Smoked Wild Salmon Crustini with pink peppercorn goat cheese
  • Grand Marnier Glazed Smoked Duck Meatballs with red chiles
  • Salad of Roasted Beets, Pears, Candied Walnuts and Feta
  • Bacon Wrapped Asparagus with garlic lemon butter
  • Cumin Seed Roasted Cauliflower with a feta yogurt sauce
  • Potato Gratin with goat cheese and roasted garlic
  • Sweet Potato Croquettes with a golden raisin brandy sauce
  • Chicken Breast atop a mixture of wilted spinach, white beans, and shallots
  • Pork Scalopini Pomodoro topped with roasted tomato, caramelized onion, garlic, basil, pine nuts, and olives

You’ll also be able to purchase these five beers from The Civil Life:

  • Vienna Lager
  • Dunkel
  • American Brown
  • Black Lager
  • British Bitter

Civil Life owner Jake Hafner will be on-hand at both Range and Bridge (where they will have 3 exclusive Civil Life beers) to guest bartend.

Thursday, March 1st – 33 Wine Shop and Tasting Bar – 3PM
It’s very fitting that one of the first stops on the Civil Life party tour is the place where it all began for Civil Life owner Jake Hafner. If you didn’t know, Jake started 33 Wine Bar almost 11 years ago to the day, he sold the bar to Jeff Stetner back in 2009 so he could start a brewery. So it comes full circle that 33 will have a total tap takeover featuring nothing but Civil Life beers.

Jake, Dylan Mosley and Mike Bianca will be on-hand where it basically all started. As you can imagine, this will be a pretty amazing and emotional time for everyone. This is an event that shouldn’t be missed.

Sunday, March 4th – Amsterdam Tavern – 9:30AM
It should be surprising that some of Civil Life’s strongest supporters are those in their own backyard. Lyell from Amsterdamn Tavern is one of the biggest supports of Civil Life and wanted to kick off their beers in style by putting their beers on for the huge (at least I’m told this is huge) Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester United game.

Jake and the boys will be at Amsterdam cooking up some G&W brats and sausages to give away and to talk about the Civil Life beers.

Monday, March 5th – International Tap House Chesterfield – 7PM
As Jake put it, they’re “taking the show on the road” and visiting the fine folks in the county by making an appearance at iTAP in Chesterfield. This will be a fine opportunity for those county folks who haven’t had a chance to make it down to the brewery to try out some of Civil Life’s very fine beers.
