So I’ve teased it in the forums a bit, but I thought I’d let you’d know what to expect tomorrow at the STL Hops Anniversary Party!

While I plan on bringing a few tasting glasses, it would be best if you brought your own tasting glass.  Also as you’re going to see in a second, we’re going to have a lot of beer.  A lot of beer. First thing, be safe.  If you need a ride, let someone know.

Second, bring along an empty, sanitized growler for the end of the night.  Once again, I plan on bringing a few extra growlers, but not a lot.  I can’t promise you’ll fill the growler, but I’m thinking it’s going to be pretty likely.

We received a ton of swag this year, in fact, it’s not all in the photo.  If you see a single beer glass in the photo, you can automatically assume we have multiples. Oh, and I couldn’t even fit everything into the photo.

Some of the items in the photo will be raffles, some will be silent auctions. So bring some money along (a check book wouldn’t hurt for the silent auction) with you as this is for a great cause, Stray Rescue of St. Louis.

Now, here’s a list of the beers/breweries that I know are confirmed for the party at this point:

  • Schlafly Cask (Not sure what cask yet, but I think we can assume something hoppy.)
  • Founders Old Curmudgeon courtesy of Missouri Beverage
  • Boulevard Single Wide IPA
  • Bell’s Two Hearted 1/2 bbl, courtesy of Bell’s.
  • A case of each, La Folie and Transatlantique Kriek courtesy of New Belgium Brewery
  • Morgan Street Brewing
  • Buffalo Brewing
  • Highlands Brewery
  • Maybe More?

Here’s a list of the places that have provided prizes for tomorrow night’s event:

If you have any questions, feel free to drop me an email (my email address is in the Contact page), I’ll try and answer it when I free up some time. Can’t wait to see everyone tomorrow night.
