schnucksI try to set deadlines for myself to get these things done, but clearly sometimes I do a very poor job of announcing winners.  Never less, let’s get down to it.

schnucksOur friends at Schnucks Markets have teamed up with Anheuser-Busch to put on a pretty impressive beer pairing that’s taking place this Saturday, June 20th from 7-8:30PM. This event, which they’re dubbing “An Evening of Ultimate Pairings in Eight Flights” features a fantastic line-up of beers from the Anheuser-Busch portfolio paired with an impressive menu. Here’s a look:

There are many reasons people get into homebrewing. One reason is to learn the art of making beer. Another big reason is that people are looking to make styles of beer they love at a cheaper price. But here’s the catch, ingredients (especially hops) are still kind of expensive.

But what if you can save some money on hops? Well, this Saturday, December 6th from 1PM to 4PM the Anheuser-Busch Home Brewers Group are giving away hops in an event they’re calling the Great Hop Give-Away! This will be your chance to get some free Cascade whole-cone hops for a limited this this Saturday.

All you need to do is show up at the designated time in the Biergarten at the Tour Center and bring your own bag/container. This is a great way to save some money and make some great beer.

ciceros.jpg Cicero’s Italian Restaurant continues their Winter Beer School semester this Wednesday from 5:30-6:30PM. Cicero’s Beer School provides background about beers and beer styles usually directly from people directly in the beer industry. It’s perfect opportunity to learn more about a style you’re unfamiliar with or to just brush up on a style you haven’t enjoyed in a while.

This week’s school is being hosted by George Reisch, director of Brewmaster Outreach for Anheuser-Busch. George will be on hand to discuss and sample some Hop Hound, Leffe, and Staropramen. Go out and take advantage of one of the few places where you can drink and learn!

If you can’t make it out to the Beer School, you can check out all of the classes via podcast at Cicerosbeerschool.com.
