The 2013 St. Louis Brewers Heritage Festival marks the seventh anniversary of the event. This festival gives you just an example of how far things have come in the St. Louis beer community.

The original festival in 2007 featured 7 local breweries which featured over 50 different beers.  The 2013 festival will feature 22 breweries in the St. Louis metro area pouring 97 different beers.

This year’s festival will be taking place next weekend back at the original location in Forest Park with three different sessions:

Friday, June 14, 6PM-10PM
Saturday, June 15, 1PM-5PM
Saturday, June 15, 7PM-11PM

Tickets for this event will cost you $35 in advance and $40 day of festival. They can be purchased from the STL Brewers Heritage Store.  I also plan on giving away a few sets of tickets over the next few days.  For your chance to win, be sure to watch the front page later today and also make sure to watch the STL Hops Twitter feed and the Facebook page.
