In many ways, the STL Hops Big Black Beer Bash is a lot like Fight Club. The obvious example is that there is a set of rules:

1. You must be 21
2. You must bring your own tasting glass
3. Must bring a big black beer of some sort
4. You must not act a fool

It’s also a pretty quiet affair, it’s not something we really advertise on the front page as it’s not something we want to get out of hand. You need to post on the forums to see when it takes place. But, that’s pretty much where the resemblance ends.

There aren’t a bunch of sweaty shirtless dudes fighting each other. There are a bunch of very awesome people who bring some big, black beers to share with everyone. It’s a lovely event and Cory King and Perennial Artisan Ales are awesome people for helping put it on. If you weren’t able to attend, here are a couple of photos to enjoy:\
