This long weekend gives us an opportunity to pay tribute to all of the soldiers that helped make this country what it is. It’s also synonymous with the unofficial kick off of summer. And nothing says summer like BBQ and beer.

Dressel’s Public House has picked up a giant new smoker and in anticipation of summer has created a new menu featuring some tasty smoked BBQ. To celebrate this new menu, Dressel’s will be throwing a little shindig on Monday, May 28th running from 12PM-10PM.

Dressel’s, who’s long been known for their support of cask beer, will have three different casks to help celebrate the start of summer. On Monday, you’ll be able to try casks of the new Homefront IPA from Perennial Artisan Ales, the new Ratsalad from 2nd Shift Brewing, and the Civil Life Bitter.

If you like bluegrass music, Dressel’s will be feature live bluegrass from 2-8PM. All of these make for a great way to start your summer. Check below the break for the new full menu from Dressel’s Pub.

Without a doubt, Tower Grove Farmers’ Market is one of the largest and most popular farmers’ markets in the area. And like all non-profit organizations, donations are always needed and always appreciated.

You’ll find few chefs in St. Louis that use more local food than Five Bistro owner Anthony Devoti. So, it should come to no surprise that he’s throwing a series of dinners in which 25% of the sales from the dinners will be donated to the Tower Grove Farmers’ Market.

Lucky for all of us, the first dinner is a beer dinner featuring 4 Hands Brewing Company.

So, next Thursday, May 24th, beginning at 7PM, Five Bistro will be putting on a four course dinner showcasing both local foods and local beer. The meal will cost you $60 per person and reservations can be made by calling 314-773-5553.

Ft. Collins, CO – April 27, 2012  New Belgium Brewing, maker of Fat Tire Amber Ale, is bringing its beer-toting, film-traveling, nonprofit-benefiting Clips of Faith(www.clipsoffaith.comshow to a park near you. The third annual Clips of Faith tour has hand-selected a variety of amateur films and will be serving palate-elevating beers under a blanket of stars in St. Louis on Friday, May 18 at Forest Park: World Fair Pavilion. In St. Louis, our partner and beneficiary is Missouri Bicycle and Pedestrian Federationa statewide, not-for-profit, membership organization that advocates advancement of bicycle and pedestrian access, safety and education in Missouri.

Since its inception two years ago, Clips of Faith has raised more than $91,000 for local philanthropic organizations and shown nearly 40 amateur films. Last year, the St. Louis festival had nearly 250 attendees and generated more than $2,100 for Missouri Bicycle and Pedestrian Federation.

“We will be offering some of our harder-to find Lips of Faith beers alongside popular classics, and local vendors will serve up their delicious fare,” said Christie Catania, Clips of Faith manager-at-large. “It’s a great way to support your own community and revel in the celebration of artistry in many forms.”

The final touches are still being put on the 2012 presentation, but in previous seasons, some of the selected storylines included a paddling trip through whaling waters, a talking beer bottle sketch comedy and an absurdist spaghetti western. Film genres ranged from comedic shorts, animation and environmental documentaries to tales about the beloved bike.

It’s been 7 long months since we all got our schnitzel on during the Oktoberfest celebrations around the area. But the International Tap House in Chesterfield is wondering why “October gets all of the fun?”

On May 18 & 19th, iTAP Chesterfield will throw their 4th annual Maifest to celebrate all things (well, maybe not all things) German. There will be plenty of brats, bands, and most importantly: beer.

Plenty of German beer will be available including Hofbrau Original, Hefeweizen, Maibock, and also the Doppelbock Delicator. You’ll also get some locally made German styles from our friends at Urban Chestnut and The Civil Life Brewing.

For those looking for some music, here’s the line-up:

Friday May 18th: 4:00PM-7:00PM My Own Medicine, 7:30PM-11:30PM Joe Dirt
