It’s the weekend Let’s get ready to party! The 7th annual St. Louis Craft Beer Week has been our biggest and best yet!
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.

Old Bakery Observer Keep-the-Glass Release Party
5:00 pm – Elijah P’s
The fine folks at Old Bakery Beer were gracious enough to brew a house beer for us. The Observer (named after Elijah P. Lovejoy’s Alton-based abolitionist newspaper) is an American Amber Ale generously dry-hopped with Simcoe, Chinook, and Cascade hops.
It’s lightly malty and nutty with a pungent bouquet of pine and citrus aroma. The Observer pairs really well with our Classic pub burger. Come on out, grab a pint, get a taste of Alton, and while supplies last, keep the OBB pint glass in which it’s served!
