Paperwork is always a long slog for any brewery. There is federal label approval, there is state approval, and not to mention getting your license, which is always fun. But there is always a light at the end of the tunnel, which 4 Hands Brewing now sees.

I’m happy to announce that 4 Hands Brewing has shipped their beer to Major Brands and will start distributing draft beer around the St. Louis area beginning today. With this major hurdle now passed, it’s time to throw some parties to celebrate. Here’s a list of what’s happening:

Friday 1/13
Range 5PM -7 PM = Cast Iron Oatmeal Brown and Reprise Centennial Red on draft
Bridge Tap House 7PM – 9PM = Divided Sky Rye IPA and Reprise Centennial Red on draft
It’s important to note with this event that for every pint of 4 Hands beer poured, both the Range and Bridge will be donating $1 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Metro St Louis Family Room program.
Monday 1/16
iTAP Chesterfield starting at 7PM
Cast Iron Oatmeal Brown, Reprise Centennial Red, Divided Sky Rye IPA on draft
Tuesday 1/17
iTAP Soulard starting at 7PM
Cast Iron Oatmeal Brown, Reprise Centennial Red, Divided Sky Rye IPA on draft
At each iTAP location, 4 Hands will be raffling off two signed and number brewery posters, gift certificated for their tasting room at 1220 S. 8th Street, and t-shirts.
While bottles of 4 Hands beer are still a couple of months away, here’s a look at their very awesome labels:
