If you’re not a member of the STL Hops Forum (why not?) then you may have missed this little nugget.  Johnny’s Sidebar, at 109 E. Main St, in Collinsville is having a beer tasting on Wednesday, Nov 19th, at 6:30pm.  Here’s the list of beers they’re having:

We are offering nine beer tastes (4oz.) for $10. It is going to have a Christmas theme and it will include our new special order Christmas beers from Shelton Brothers. Here are the offerings.

  • Santa’s Butt – Winter Porter
  • Jenlain Noel – French Christmas Ale
  • Weissenohe Monksfest – Traditional Marzen Beer
  • Lump of Coal – Dark Holiday Stout
  • Severely Bad Elf – English Double Ale
  • Breckenridge Christmas
  • St. Bernardus Apt 12
  • Gouden Carolus Hopsinjour
  • Weltenburger Kloster Anno 1050 – Urtyp Hell

As I’m still feeling a bit under the weather, I probably won’t be able to make it out.  If you do attend, please be certain to take plenty of pictures to share.
