If this was a marathon, you’d be on about the 16th mile!  You’re putting forth another strong effort for the 7th annual St. Louis Craft Beer Week. Keep it up!

We have over 150 events taking place this year making this the biggest STLCBW so far. What do we need from you? We need you to go out and make these events successful.  Over the next 9 days, I’m going to detail each days events. Do your part and get out and make these events a success.  

Just a couple of things to mention.  Thanks to the folks at Goose Island, we have an Untappd badge again this year, because we all love badges. Also thanks to our friends Urban Chestnut and the St. Louis Brewers’ Guild for being the presenting sponsors of STLCBW. We couldn’t have done this without all of the help from our sponsors.

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