PrintBigger isn’t necessarily better. More and more I appreciate a well-crafted tap selection of 8-10 taps than a 70 tap selection. There is something to be said for someone curating a beer list.

33 Wine Shop was ahead of the trend. Their six taps are always interesting and provide plenty of different options.  The same could be said for the 2nd Shift Brewing portfolio.  Sure, 2nd Shift if known for their hops, but they brew some amazing Belgian-style ales, stouts, and now even an amazing Czech-style pilsner.

What happens when a six-tap system meets a brewery with a delicious portfolio?  Magic.  And also a total tap takeover. Starting at 3:30PM on Saturday, June 27th, 33 will be putting on six different 2nd Shift beers on tap.  And what a line-up it is:

  • Katy
  • Grace (Batch 2)
  • Chateau la Douchebag
  • Brewcocky
  • Technical Ecstasy
  • Hibiscus Wit

And if that’s not enough, there will also be a pin of Rye-Barrel LSD.  Head out to 33 on Saturday and enjoy the fruits of a well-curated tap system meeting some delicious beers.

It may not be March, but the luck of the Irish is upon you as O’Shay’s Pub is putting on a killer event featuring Founders Brewing Company.  Starting at 7PM, O’Shay’s will be tapping a keg of Porter, Rubaeus, and the always palate splitting Devil Dancer.  They’ll also feature cans of All Day and Centennial IPA as well.


Five Bistro is easily the best restaurant on the Hill. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise to see them put on a beer dinner with one of the best breweries in St. Louis, 2nd Shift Brewing and also special guest Femme Ferment.

This Wednesday, June 17th, Five will be putting on a five course beer dinner featuring six different beers from 2nd Shift. This dinner will be hosted by Steve Crider, owner and brewmaster at 2nd Shift. This dinner will cost $60 per person and reservations are require. You can reserve your seat by calling 314-773-5553.

Here’s a look at the menu.


prettythingsThanks to Shelton Brothers being back in town, we get some awesome beers that previously wasn’t available to us. One of those breweries is Pretty Things Beer & Ale Project out of Somerville, Massachusetts.

Dann and Martha (Holley)-Paquette are in St. Louis and are visiting a few accounts to talk beer with their fellow beer fans. Starting at 3PM, Dann and Martha will be visiting Craft Beer Cellar in Clayton and will have Flowerland IIPA and Jack D’Or Saison on draft.

Dann and Martha will then travel east and will be at 33 Wine Shop and Tasting Bar beginning around 5PM until 8PM.  33 will be featuring five different Pretty Things beers including the smoked imperial stout Fumapapa.

Whether you’re in the city or county, you’ll be able to get your Pretty Things fix today.

flyingsaucerlogoIt’s not every day that you get a renowned beer author visiting your town, it’s even less often that you get to have him guide you through an entire beer dinner.  Flying Saucer achieved both items and have put together a beer dinner featuring Stephen Beaumont, co-author of The World Atlas of Beer and two editions of The Pocket Beer Guide.

If that wasn’t enough of draw for you, Stephen is working with Chris Vomund of Herbie’s Vintage ’72 to create four courses to be paired with four local beers. You’ll be able to enjoy 4 Hands Prelude, Urban Chestnut Hallertau Pils, Civil Life Big American Stout, and the Modern Brewery Green Goliath all paired with the unique cuisine of Chef Chris.

The dinner is taking place on Wednesday, June 17th at 6:30PM. The cost is $70 per person (or $65 for UFO Members) and includes the beer and food for the event, as well as the QA session with Stephen Beaumont. You can make reservations by calling (314) 932-1456.
