royale-weblogo-300x163Yeah, I’m the worst.  I forgot to announce the winners for tonight’s Cellar Night at The Royale. Without further ado, the winners for tonight’s event are Kyle Cunningham and Jamie Michaels.

If you didn’t win, I’ll definitely have some cool contests lurking around the corner. Big thank you to The Royale for supplying the tickets for tonight’s event. It’ll be a hell of a time.

 

royaleWhen you’ve been around as long as The Royale, you start building a pretty deep cellar of beer. What better way to use that cellar than to throw a party?

Tomorrow night The Royale is throwing one hell of a cellar party. Starting at 6pm, all of the big guns are being broke out.  Here’s the line-up:

  • Bell’s Expedition Stout 2014
  • Boulevard Saison-Brett 2016
  • Deschutes The Abyss 2015
  • Firestone-Walker Bravo
  • Firestone-Walker Bretta Weiss 2016
  • Founders KBS 2016
  • Founders Nitro Pale Ale
  • Perennial Campers Reserve
  • Stone Farking Wheaton W00Tstout 2.0 2015
  • Struise Black Albert 2016
  • Goose Island Bourbon County Stout 2015*
  • Perennial Barrel Aged Sump*
Hell of a line-up, eh? If you want to enjoy this awesome selection of beers, be sure to purchase a ticket to this event. Tickets are $50 for all you can drink (with the exception of Perennial BA Sump and GI BCS, which are limited to a single 6oz pour of each.)
The Royale was even kind enough to give away two tickets to the event.  We’ll make this an easy (and quick) contest, just email contest@stlhops.com with Cellar Night as the subject. I’ll pick two winners  on Thursday, March 30th at 8AM. A couple of quick notes:

  • If you’ve won something from STL Hops in the past 6 months, please be cool and let someone else enter.
  • You must be 21 or older to enter.
  • No multiple entries.

If you don’t win this one, don’t worry I will be holding more contests like this in the future, so you’ll have another chance then. Good luck!
