First of all, big thanks to Schlafly, Stephen Hale, Andy White and Brennan Greene for helping out with this event. It couldn’t have nearly as successful without their help.
Second, thanks to Clayton for selling raffle tickets, we raised a ton of money because of his help. Third, thanks to Sean Thompson for taking photos of the event, I wish I would have taken some myself, but honestly (and I say this with absolutely no hyperbole) I was having so much fun I forgot.
But if you didn’t attend this is a small gallery of what you missed:
I once again want to thank all of the breweries and distributors, O’Fallon, Schlafly, Morgan Street, Buffalo Brewing Company, Missouri Beverage, New Belgium Brewing and Boulevard, that participated in donating time and beer.
I also once again want to thank the following places for donating items for raffles and giveaways:
- Bigelo’s Bistro
- Bon Vivant Wines
- Boulevard Brewing
- City Gourmet
- DeVine Wines
- Pi Restaurant
- Major Brands
- Missouri Beverage
- New Belgium Brewing
- Randall’s Wines and Spirits
- Riddle’s Penultimate Café & Wine Bar
- Salon 231
- Wine and Cheese Place
- Whole Foods Galleria
After everything has been paid for, we raised an amazing $1841.65 for Stray Rescue of St. Louis. I was flabbergasted by the generosity of everyone involved and this money is going to a great cause. This is a huge gain over last year’s $800.
Thank you all, once again for a fantastic event and a fantastic year of beer in St. Louis. I’m looking forward to planning next year’s event already.
