tablestlCall me a Grinch, but I’m tired of buying gifts. It’s not that I don’t enjoy giving people presents, but I’m pretty sick of exchanging equal amounts of money for the sake of social obligation. Silly. If I want to buy you a present, I’ll buy you one because I want to, not because of some holiday.

To me the holidays are about the experience. The gathering of friends and family and (hopefully) having a wonderful time together. It’s also about giving back. Many of us are fortunate enough to have enough expendable income to buy things like craft beer, it’s only nice to give back to those that are struggling to get by.

It’s with this spirit of giving and friendship that Perennial Artisan Ales has teamed with Table to put together the 2013 STL Brewers Holiday Party. This event will be taking place on Tuesday, December 10th from 6PM-9PM and the cost of admission is $30 per ticket with proceeds going to Haven House.

Perennial and Table have invited 13 local breweries to provide samples of their winter seasonals along with some delicious hors d’oeurves from Table’s owner/chef Cassy Vires. In the spirit of the holiday season, Perennial and Table are asking guests to bring a donation to the event in the form of unwrapped gifts, personal care items, gift certificates, games, puzzles, cleaning supplies, and cold weather clothing.

Here’s a list of breweries attending this year’s event:

  • Perennial
  • Side Project
  • Civil Life
  • 4 Hands
  • 2nd Shift
  • Urban Chestnut
  • Morgan Street
  • Square One
  • Cathedral Square

Tickets can be purchased now via Brown Paper Tickets. Don’t miss out on this very fun and special event.
