I can think of few better pairings than beer and barbecue. Don’t believe me? Ask those fine folks that visit Bogarts and iTAP Soulard on a Saturday afternoon. There is just something about smoky meat that pairs well with craft beer.

Evidently Copia Restaurant & Wine Garden agrees, which is why they’re throwing their first ever Beer and BBQ tasting event. On Thursday, September 13th, Copia will be featuring beers from over 10 different local and regional breweries along with BBQ cooked up by Copia’s award-winning Chef Dave Rook.

The event will feature beers from 2nd Shift, 4 Hands, Six Row, Ferguson Brewing Company, Perennial Artisan Ales and Urban Chestnut Brewing Company, Abita, Deschutes Brewery, Founders Brewing Co., Goose Island, and Tallgrass Brewing Company.

This event begins and 7PM and will cost you $37 ($47 at the door) and will feature unlimited samples along with that BBQ. You can make your reservation by calling 314-241-9463.
