iTAP-Midsummer15-webDo you know what’s a wonder of the modern age?  Air conditioning. Why am I waxing on about modern conveniences on a beer blog?  Because I hear too many people talk about not wanting stouts during the summer.

I’m not advocating drinking a 13% beer after mowing the grass (though, there isn’t anything wrong with that.)  But, there is no reason not to enjoy some big beer after work in the comfort of your temperature-controlled home.

Do you know who has air conditioning and awesome beer?  The International Tap House in Central West End. While their beer selection is awesome all of the time, it’s extra awesome this Saturday, August 29th beginning at 2PM when they hold their Midsummer Nightmare event.

This event features some of the biggest and baddest beers in St. Louis all at one time.  Take a look at the list:

  • 4 Hands Volume 1
  • Deschutes Abyss
  • Evil Twin Even More Jesus
  • Evil Twin I Love You With All My Stout
  • Humboldt black Xantus
  • Sierra Nevada Narwhal

  • Prairie Bomb!
  • Stone Woot
