Pivo Pils – Firestone Walker
Prairie Noir – Prairie Artisan
Grainstorm Black Rye IPA – Boulevard Brewing Co
Redvolution – Six Row Brewing
Strawberry Blonde – Charleville Brewing Co

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 (and also now in St. Charles!) to see something cool on tap. Llywelyn’s is continuing their program that they’ve been 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 in Webster will be featuring bottles of Bourbon County Bramble Rye and Firestone Walker Parabola. While the St. Charles location will be serving up the New Belgium Lips of Faith Imperial Coffee Chocolate Stout on draft. So, if you’re looking for something special without all of the lists and missed opportunities, make sure to stop into Llywelyn’s in St. Charles or Webster tonight!

If I had to guess, I’d say that Matt Thenhaus is finally living his dream. If you don’t know Matt, you’ve surely seen him around town if you’ve ever darkened the doorways of places like The Royale, Schlafly Tap Room, or Blueberry Hill.

Matt also has run the blog Sacred Beer for the past few years. Matt is one of the pillars of the local beer community. So when he told many of us that he was partnering with a few folks to open up his own bar, we were happy for him.

The effort of all of the work and time Matt has help put in is the new Fortune Teller Bar on Cherokee. This is a beer and cocktail focused bar featuring an eclectic mix of old school German beers along with some of the solid hits from breweries in the US. Beers are only available in bottles at the moment, but draft beer should be online very soon.

Open at 4PM Monday through Saturday, this should be a new spot on your craft beer gauntlet. Check out some of the photos below:

itap.jpgI don’t always have much (or any) Christmas spirit. December is just not one of my favorite months. One of the things that annoys me the most is just how damned early it gets dark. It’s not much fun to wake up in the dark and come home from work in the dark.

But dark isn’t always bad.  Take for instance the iTAP Nightmare Before Christmas.  Next Saturday, December 15th the International Tap House (both locations) will be putting on a bunch of big, rare beers, and a bunch of dark beers to boot. Here’s a list of what to expect:

I can’t believe it’s already been three years since Six Row Brewing first opened its doors. That’s crazy talk.

Before we saw this huge explosion of breweries opening in St. Louis over the past few years, Six Row was first on the scene. And to celebrate their anniversary, they’re throwing three days worth of events.

Take a look below for the events taking place over the next few days:

  • Thursday Night (December 6th starting at 5PM)
    • End of the World Cask: Chili Chocolate Russian Imperial Stout
  • Friday Night (December 7th Special Tappings Throughout the Day)
    • Cask of Spiced Oktoberfest
    • Tapping of Anniversary Ale: Trippel
    • Live Music: The Bob and Perry Revue Featuring the Original Mojos
  • Saturday (December 8th)
    • 10AM – Beer Breakfast featuring beer pancakes!
    • Baumann’s Bacon Porter Cask
    • Tapping of Strawberry Honey Weizen
    • 4PM tapping Imperial Chocolate Milk Stout

Sounds like a very fun weekend. Congrats to Six Row on their anniversary, I’m sure there will be many more to come!
