globalbrew-springbeerfestivalUnlike the past few years, I don’t think any of us can argue we haven’t gotten a proper spring. It certainly feels like spring now and I love it. What better way to celebrate this fantastic season than by enjoying the weather and the beer outside.

This Saturday, April 25th, Global Tap House in Edwardsville will be celebrating spring by hosting the Edwardsville Spring Beer Festival. Running from 11AM to 8PM, this festival will feature over 20 different craft breweries and a portion of the proceeds will be used for the City of Edwardsville: A Better Place to Play project.

Here’s a rundown of some of the breweries that will be participating:

  • Goose Island
  • Tallgrass – including casks
  • Destihl
  • Founders
  • Schlafly
  • Civil Life
  • Scratch
  • Ballast Point – including Grapefruit Sculpin
  • Oskar Blues
  • Stone – Mutt Brown, the first brown ale from the brewery.

There will be live music throughout the day and some great food from restaurants like Cleveland-Heath and 1818 Chophouse. Don’t miss out on this wonderful east-side experience.
