dannosDanno’s American Pub, located at 7895 Watson Rd, 63119, is a bar that has been family owned for about 30+years.  It’s gone through a couple of name changes over the years, but it’s historically been kind of a blue collar bar over it’s history.

When Danno’s co-owner Chris Muether re-opened the bar under a new name this past July, he decided that the neighborhood was ready for an upgrade over the staid beers of the past.  Chris, being a lover of great beer decided to introduce a new beer list that includes more craft and import selections.

It also includes a new monthly series of beer tastings.  Tomorrow, Tuesday, November 24th from 6:30PM -10PM they will be a sampling of some of the best Porters available in the St. Louis area.   The cost of the sampling is $25 and includes the following:

  • Four 6 ounce tasters, each paired with a separate food course. These courses include a fruit and cheese sampler, a garden fresh salad with walnuts, a main entre featuring beef medallions in a porter-based sauce (or ask for our vegetarian option), and a dessert (paired with Breckenridge’s vanilla porter!).
  • Door prizes for guests, including the chance to win gift certificates to local sponsors and other prizes just for attending! This month Apop Records (on historical Cherokee Street) has offered up a 25$ gift certificate to a lucky guest!
  • A brief history of the beer style presented by beer lover and barman Chris Muether.
  • Live music to wrap up the end of our tasting. This month we’re welcoming back the Dave Stone Trio.
