submissionWhat happens when delicious Mexican food and a delicious IPA meet?  Well, we’re going to find out when 2nd Shift Brewing releases their collaboration with Mission Taco Joint called Sub-Mission IPA. This West Coast-style IPA was designed to pair with the awesome Mexican fare at Adam and Jason Tilford’s restaurants.

To celebrate this release, the Tilfords’ original Mexican restaurant, Milagro Modern Mexican, is throwing a tap takeover this Wednesday, April 23rd from 4PM to close. Chef Jason Tilford has created some special dishes to go along with their newest beer.

Not only are you going to enjoy the debut of Sub-Mission, along with Hibiscus Wit, Art of Neurosis, Coffee LSD, and Katy, but you’ll also get a chance to try their other newest beer: Grace. Grace is a 100% barrel fermented saison, fermented with brettanomyces bruxellensis and brettanomyces lambicus.

Find out what happens when two awesome places combine to create something cool tomorrow at Milagro. (Oh and if you can’t make it out tomorrow, you’ll start seeing Sub-Mission available at the Tilfords’ other restaurants and in bottles soon!)

arbormeisterI love when a beer event is partnered with a good cause. It makes you feel like your beer drinking is helping the world. In this case, your beer drinking really is helping the world because the Arbormeisters Homebrew Festival benefits Forest ReLeaf of Missouri, an organization that encourages planting of trees in cities and towns in America.

This festival will be taking place this Saturday, April 26th from 1PM-5PM and will feature beer brewed by the Garage Brewers Society and our own STL Hops Homebrew Club.

The unique twist on this beer festival is that each batch of homebrew has been crafted to include one “tree” ingredient. Some of the beers from the STL Hops Homebrew Club include a Persimmon Gose, an American Wheat with orange, lemon, and lime peel, and a Spruce Saison.

Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. Your ticket includes a tasting glass, water, light snacks and unlimited tree-themed samples. You can purchase tickets via this link. Stay tuned as we’ll be giving away two tickets to this event tomorrow.
