If there has been one restaurant I’ve recommended more than any other recently it’s been Dressel’s Pub. Without a doubt, they’ve been one of the most consistent and most enjoyable dining experiences I’ve had in the past year. And they put on a pretty great beer dinner as well.
Want to find out? Well next Tuesday, February 26th beginning at 7PM, Dressel’s will be hosting a five course meal featuring two of St. Louis’s best breweries: 2nd Shift Brewing and Perennial Artisan Ales.
As is usually the case, Ben Dressel is once again breaking out some awesome beer to pair with the dinner including Perennial Abraxas, 2nd Shift Albino Pygmy Puma, and a cask of Art of Neurosis. There are a few seats left for this dinner and will cost you $60 (not including tax and gratuity.) Reservations can be made by emailing Ben Dressel or calling (314) 361-1060.
