St. Louis Craft Beer Week is a lot like a marathon.  You need to stay hydrated, you need to keep up your energy, and you need to keep your eye on the prize.  We’re half way through now, don’t give up!

As you know, we have over 100 events taking place this year making this the biggest STLCBW so far. We’ve had an awesome start, but the week is still a long way from being over.  There are still a lot of awesome events taking place today.

I once again want to say thanks to the folks at Schlafly, which because of them we have an Untappd badge again this year. Also thanks to our friends at Schlafly and Boulevard, there will be some STLCBW glassware floating around, so be on the lookout for that.  And finally thanks to the St. Louis Brewers Guild there are some special STLCBW glasses, which will probably be available at St. Louis-centric events.

Also, make sure to use the #STLCBW hashtag for all of your social media-ing during the event.

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 Wednesday’s events.
