Tomorrow begins the 5th annual St. Louis Craft Beer Week. If you’ve noticed, STL Hops has been rather quiet, the reason being is that we’re all very busy trying to get things together. We have over 90 events taking place this year making this the biggest STLCBW by far.

What do we need from you? We need you to go out and make these events successful.  Over the next 9 days, I’m going to detail each days events. Do your part and get out and make these events a success.

Also be sure to check out the Chef’s Choice Pairing Menus, these are menus or special dishes put together to celebrate this week. Without further ado, here are Saturday and Sunday’s events.
