So, things kind of changed between the time I started crafting this post and now, so pay close attention. As some of you may know, there is a local food podcast in town that I’m apart of called StewedSTL.

What started off as a way to goof around and create a fun podcast has turned into something relatively popular. Because it’s gotten so popular, we really thought we needed to up our game and do a better job on the sound quality of the show.

The problem is, we’ve already dumped over $2000 into putting this podcast together. For the sake of our marriages/relationships, we thought the best option to raise another $2000 was to create a Kickstarter for our upgrade. So, we’ve had a lot of people rally around us to try and get this raised.

Which includes the fine folks at 4 Hands Brewing Company which will be hosting an event this Thursday, April 12 from 4PM-9PM in which they’ll be donating 25% of their “total ring.” Also, friends and guests of Stewed, Guerrilla Street Food will be there dishing up some tasting food that evening.

So, this is all awesome. Right?

Well, like I said at the beginning, things have changed a bit.  We actually reached our goal of $2000 this afternoon. Which is fantastic, it’ll really help a long way.  But, we have 8 days left to raise money, and while we could definitely use the extra money for some other equipment we have our eye on, it didn’t seem right keeping all of the overages that will come from the 4 Hands event.

So, now that we’ve raised the $2000, StewedSTL will be donating 30% of all of the overages to the St. Louis Area Foodbank.  So, if this was all confusing, here’s all you need to know:

30% of the money StewedSTL raises that evening will go to St. Louis Area Foodbank

Come on out, have a few beers, get some great food, and have a great time.

People get really wrapped up in what’s new. I’m not pointing fingers here, I get wrapped up in it too. With all of the amazing changes we’ve seen in St. Louis in the past few years, it’s easy to forget some of the brands that have been around for quite some time.

Let’s take New Holland Brewing Company for example. I don’t know about you, but I think that New Holland makes some pretty good beers. I’m a big fan of Mad Hatter, Night Tripper, Pilgrim’s Dole, and of course Dragon’s Milk.

And as good as Dragon’s Milk is, I don’t think I’ve ever seen it on cask in the St. Louis area, until now. Starting at 5PM on Wednesday, April 25th, The Wine Tap in Belleville will be putting on their first firkin party featuring the one and only Dragon’s Milk on cask. The will also be featuring several other New Holland favorites on tap that night including:

  • Imperial Hatter
  • Night Tripper Imperial Stout
  • Mole Ocho
  • Mad Hatter
  • Beerhive Tripel

This is a good opportunity to put a kibosh on looking for the newest thing and giving you the opportunity to stop and smell the roses, or in this case, enjoy some awesome beer.
