I can’t believe it’s already been a year. I started this site a year ago basically to sound off about beer and also provide a little information for beer lovers in the area. I know I’ve said this a ton of times, but I’m really amazed what this site has become. It’s not longer just a single crazy beer nerd and some of his ramblings, but 385 posts and 1400 comments later this place has become a full-fledged community of beer enthusiasts. I’m really proud of the site and the people who have come aboard for the fun. So, I thank everyone who has stopped by and added something to this community. Thank you.

Now, what’s missing? Is there anything you’d like to see more of? Is there something else that could be done? I’m always up for suggestions, ideas, and criticism and would like some feedback on what could be done to make STL Hops more valuable to you. So feel free to let lose, I’ve got thick skin.

Also, two other little notes that will hopefully be of some interest to some of you. First, the STL Hops Anniversary party will be on October 24th at the Schlafly Tap Room, the total cost will be $15 per person and all proceeds will be donated to Stray Rescue of St. Louis. I’ll have more information about this event to all of you soon. The second item is that I’m in the middle of finishing a new logo for STL Hops which means I may have some swag for people to buy (at cost) in the near future.

Once again, thank you for making this first year so successful.
