arbormeisterI love when a beer event is partnered with a good cause. It makes you feel like your beer drinking is helping the world. In this case, your beer drinking really is helping the world because the Arbormeisters Homebrew Festival benefits Forest ReLeaf of Missouri, an organization that encourages planting of trees in cities and towns in America.

This festival will be taking place this Saturday, April 26th from 1PM-5PM and will feature beer brewed by the Garage Brewers Society and our own STL Hops Homebrew Club.

The unique twist on this beer festival is that each batch of homebrew has been crafted to include one “tree” ingredient. Some of the beers from the STL Hops Homebrew Club include a Persimmon Gose, an American Wheat with orange, lemon, and lime peel, and a Spruce Saison.

Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. Your ticket includes a tasting glass, water, light snacks and unlimited tree-themed samples. You can purchase tickets via this link. Stay tuned as we’ll be giving away two tickets to this event tomorrow.
