If you’re a food nerd (and if you use the phrase “foodie” you’re probably not) then you’re well aware of Eater.com. If not, well Eater is easily one of the largest food news/rumor/humor websites on the internet.

So, when Eater reached out to the Riverfront Times Food Critic Ian Froeb to get the scoop on what trends are happening in our humble little ‘burb, Ian had a clear answer: craft beer. Of all of the things going on in our fair town, it’s safe to say that craft beer is easily one of the hottest commodities we’ve got going.

Ian talks about the community that has grown up around the craft beer scene here and even throws a bone to us fine folks at STL Hops. Make sure to give it a read, we’re big time now!
