As I was enjoying some beer last night at the International Tap House, I was introduced to a gentleman named Paul who is moving to St. Louis from Syracuse, NY. One of his biggest concerns about moving to St. Louis was a lack of a beer scene. After his visit I think all of his fears have been allayed.
But Paul is lucky, he’s going to be living in the sweet craft beer confines of St. Louis City. But what if you don’t live in the city, or near the city for that matter? Believe it or not, stuff happens outside of the 270 loop. Take for instance this event.
On Wednesday, November 16th, beginning at 6PM, the Basket Case Deli in Washington, MO will be holding a beer dinner featuring beers from O’Fallon Brewery. The meal will set you back $45 per person (tax and gratuity not included) and will provide four courses paired with four different O’Fallon Beers. Reservations are required and can be made by calling (636)239-3131. Here’s a look at the menu:
