logo-bridge-wpSometimes I feel like Rip Van Winkle. I wake up and years have passed. Wasn’t it just 2010? How is it already 2015?

Granted, this isn’t a terrible thing. Watching as the world keeps changing is certainly fascinating. But time can definitely sneak up on you. What’s more surprising to me is not finding out the Dave Bailey’s beautiful beer bar Bridge is celebrating five years in business, but that it’s ONLY celebrating five years in business.

It feels like the Bridge has been with us much longer than that, which speaks to just how wonderful of an establishment he and his staff have created. To celebrate this wonderful occasion Bridge has lined up an amazing menu of beers that they’ll begin pouring this Thursday, February 26th beginning at 5PM.

Some of these beers they’ve been holding on to since the day they opened their door. That’s only speaks to their patience and seriousness of being one of the best beer bars in St. Louis. Here’s a look at the list:

  • 2010 Avery Mephistopheles
  • 2010 Avery The Beast
  • 2010 Schlafly Imperial Stout
  • 2010 Gouden Carolus Cuvee Van de Keizer Blauw
  • 2010 Great Divide Hibernation
  • 2014 Perennial Anniversaria
  • Schlafly Chestnut Mild
  • Stone Reason Be Damned
  • Firestone Walker Double DBA
  • Cantillon Saint Gilloise
  • Bell’s Hopslam
  • Bell’s Red Nose ESB
  • Brauerei Schloss Eggenberg Samichlaus
  • Siren/Prairie Artisan Ales Ratchet
  • Perennial Peach Berliner Weisse
  • Perennial Sump Coffee Stout

And for the first 75 guest, purchasing a beer from the birthday beer list will get you a hand-etched commemorative glass to keep! And for those of you that like cocktails, there will be a few creations including “the Silverwood, made with Rooster’s Breakfast Beer, brewed by 4 Hands Brewing Company, and The Five Year Sting, featuring Greenbird, brewed for Bridge Tap House & Wine Bar by 2nd Shift Brewing.”

Head out this Thursday and enjoy not only a great time, but also one of the best places to enjoy a beer over the past five years.
