stlhopslogosmall.gifTomorrow brings us to the STL Hops 5th Anniversary Party, I thought I’d give you a little update on the eats and drinks that will be available on Saturday evening. It should be a great time and I’m pretty excited about what’s in store. First up, the eats.

This year, if you want to eat you’ll need to purchase food.  I know it’s been part of the ticket at previous events, but that got to be too much of a hassle and honestly it takes a big chunk of money from Stray Rescue, so I’ve had to eliminate the free grub.  But, you will be able to purchase some awesome food from created just for the party by Baileys’ Restaurants:

  • Smoked Philly – Beer braised onions and bell peppers with house cheese sauce
  • House Made Corned Beef – Beer kraut and Swiss cheese sauce
  • Pulled Pork – Onion, BBQ sauce and cheddar cheese
  • Veggie option will also be available

Next up, a few do’s and don’ts of the party:

  • Don’t crash the party. We’ll have bouncers and wristbands, so if we see you drinking and you don’t have a ticket, we’ll kindly ask you to leave.
  • Do bring your wallet. We received a ton of swag this year, so bring some money along(a check book or credit card wouldn’t hurt for the silent auction) with you as this is for a great cause, Stray Rescue of St. Louis.
  • Don’t bring your own beer. We have A LOT of beer, so no bringing your own bottles of homebrews or commercial beers please.
  • Don’t touch the equipment. 4 Hands has graciously donated this space to us, don’t let me or 4 Hands regret it.
  • Don’t bring growlers. I know we allowed you guys to fill up some beer afterward, but not this go-around.
  • Don’t bring your own glass. Glassware is provided this year.
  • Don’t puke. If I see you puke, it means you can’t handle yourself and we’ll kindly ask you to leave.
  • Do have a great time. Unless your idea of a great time includes puking, then I ask that you stay home.

But, I’m sure you’re all here for the beer.  So, without further ado, here’s the current list of beers that we’ll having pouring on Saturday:
