I’m proud to announce that the fourth-annual St. Louis Craft Beer Week will be returning for 2012. This will be over a week long event beginning on July 28th and culminating on August 5th.

This year’s STLCBW, as always, will be put on by a group of breweries, distributors, restaurants, bars, retail outlets, and beer fans all working together to promote and enjoy craft beer.

Last year we had over 60 events that took place over 9 days.  We had sneak peek brewery tours, cask events, tap take overs, and beer dinners.  Plans are already in the works for events including St. Louis’s first (as far as I can tell) Belgian Beer Festival hosted by Perennial Artisan Ales and as always, the Herbst Brewing Symposium. But we’re always interested in hearing your suggestions.

If you’re a restaurant/bar, retail facility, distributor or brewery that would like  please contact me at mike@stlhops.com or mike@stlbeerweek.com.
