2BROS-2Everything old is new again as Cicero’s, is the launch location for the re-introduction of Two Brothers Brewing in St. Louis. Old?  Well yes, you see at one time we used to get Two Brothers if you were willing to cross the river into Illinois.

But with the popularity of craft beer all over this fine nation, a lot of breweries like Two Brothers had to pull back and support their home market so it dried up for a little bit.  It roared back into Southern Illinois, but it’s now available in St. Louis as well.

To welcome Two Brothers into STL, Cicero’s is throwing a launch party tomorrow, September 12th from 4:30PM until close. Cane and Ebel, Domaine Dupage, and Outlaw will be on tap while bottles of Ebels Weiss, Prairie Path, and Side Kick will be available.

Start your weekend off right by giving Two Brothers a warm St. Louis hello at Cicero’s.

oshaysBeing around positive people makes you realize that they take pleasure in new experiences. For instance I had my first chance to visit O’Shay’s Pub a few weeks ago. It’s a nice little pub on the edge of the Grove, right next door to the new UCBC facility.

I also had a chance to try the Crown Valley Brewery Imperial Pumpkin Smash for the first time over the weekend. While I’ve always been impressed with the craftsmanship of Crown Valley’s beers, I may have found one of my new favorite pumpkin beers. It’s a wonderful mix of roasted barley that’s balanced quite well with pumpkin spicing.

If you haven’t been able to check out either of these experiences, maybe it’s time you do. And luckily, you can do both this Saturday, September 13th from 7-10PM when O’Shay’s hosts Crown Valley for a Tap Takeover and keep the pint event.

Not only will you get a chance to try the Imperial Pumpkin Smash, but they’ll also have Serrano Sidekick and Gunslinger IPA available as well. Trust me on this one, this is something you’ll want to try even if it’s not your first time.
