stlhopslogosmall.gifI’ve been kind of dragging my feet on putting up this post, but I can’t wait much longer. (Plus, from what I hear, you guys and gals are clamoring to buy tickets.)

On November 10th at 6:00PM, STL Hops will be having its Fifth Anniversary Party at 4 Hands Brewing Company. As many of you know this party was originally held at Schlafly. But, with the all of the new breweries in the area, I thought it would be fun to kind of share the love and move the event around.  I want to thank Schlafly and Perennial for hosting the first years of events, they were awesome hosts.

Tickets can be purchased through Brown Paper Tickets and the cost is $26.10. Why the extra ten cents? Because with the BPT service fee, the exact cost of the ticket is $28.00. All of the proceeds for this event will be donated to Stray Rescue of St. Louis. Your ticket will include beer and a special glass made specifically for this event. I’ve also added a designated driver ticket for $2 that will get you in the door for the fun.

I’m still working on what beer will be available at the event, but as you’ve seen in the past, there will be plenty of great stuff to drink this evening. Part of the reason I’ve been dragging my feet is that I’ve been trying to lock down all of the beer.  But let me tell you, there is some cool stuff already lined up. Food will be available for purchase, still working out all of the details on that.

Keep checking back because I’m working on not only getting a bunch of brewers but also a bunch of swag as well. 200 tickets are being made available for this event, so get them while you can.

Purchase tickets HERE.

You know what we haven’t had in a while? A Tap Takeover. Sure we get plenty of them during St. Louis Craft Beer Week, but we don’t see a lot of them during the rest of the year.

Luckily, Urban Chestnut Brewing Company has recognized this serious lack of takeovers and has decided to invade Global Brew Tap House and Lounge in O’Fallon, IL for a very special event.

UCBC is breaking out some of the good stuff which includes dry-hopped cask of Hopfen Bavarian IPA. Some of the beers on tap will include STLIPA, Dorfbier, Schnickelfritz, and Daft. You’ll also have a chance to win some UCBC swag and also meet brewer Jason Thompson.

If you want to get down on this tap takeover, make sure to head to Global Brew in O’Fallon tonight beginning at 7PM.
