qandbrewEvery time the topic of some of the best food and beer pairings comes up, I almost immediate discuss one of my favorites: beer and BBQ.  There is something about smoky meat and beer that makes me happy.

The Riverfront Times must have been reading my mind when they decided to put on their first craft beer and BBQ event that they’re calling Q & Brew in the Lou. This event will be taking place on Saturday, August 23rd from 4PM to 8PM at the St. Louis Union Station South Plaza.

Your $25 ticket (or $30 at the door) will get you unlimited samples of beer from over 20 breweries. BBQ will be available for purchase if you’re looking for that great pairing. There is also a VIP ticket for $55 for those ballers out there. A list of the breweries include:

  • 4 Hands
  • Boulevard
  • Cathedral Square
  • Charleville
  • Excel
  • Exit 6
  • Ferguson
  • Goose Island
  • Kirkwood Station
  • Morgan Street
  • O’Fallon
  • Schlafly
  • Six Row
  • Square One
  • UCBC

But there’s more! For a limited time (until Saturday, 8/9) you can get $5 off your ticket by using the code STLHOPS. If that’s not enough, stay tuned next week for a contest where we’ll be giving away a pair of tickets to the event!
