Back in March, I let you know about what will probably be the definitive book about brewing in St. Louis, St. Louis Brews: 200 Years of Brewing in St. Louis 1809-2009. Well, the book is now available, and first off, you MUST pick this up. It’s wonderfully detailed and full of amazing photographs from throughout the past 200 years of brewing in St. Louis.
This upcoming Monday, October 19 from 7PM-9PM, will provide you with the chance to get a signed copy of St. Louis Brews by one of the book’s authors Henry Herbst at the Schlafly Bottleworks. I don’t know if any of you have been following along with Henry’s condition, but things aren’t going great. But Henry is going to fight through hell and high water to attend the event.
If you have the chance to attend, I’d love for everyone to stop by and thank Henry for this book and have a chance to meet a legend of the St. Louis beer scene.
