I’m pleased to announce that the winner for the two tickets to the not yet sold out (how has this not sold out?) Cabin Fever is Brenda Achenbach! Congrats to Brenda and thank you everyone for entering. If you didn’t win, don’t be too upset, once again I’m sure I’ll have some cool stuff to give away soon.

I once again want to thank Schlafly for providing the tickets to this event. Have a great time this weekend everyone, the weather is going to be great.

cabinfeverart.gif If past years are any indication, I’m sure Cabin Fever is pretty close to selling out. So if you’re looking for a last chance to pick up some tickets to this wonderful outdoor event (it’s supposed to be around 54° on Saturday!) well then this may be your best shot.

Thanks to the fine folks from Schlafly, I have two tickets to give away for Cabin Fever.

We’ll make this an easy contest, just email contest@stlhops.com with Cabin Fever as the subject. I’ll pick one winner Friday, January 16th, at 10AM. A couple of quick notes:

  • If you’ve won something from STL Hops in the past 6 months, please be cool and let someone else enter.
  • You must be 21 or older to enter.
  • No multiple entries.

If you don’t win this one, don’t worry I will be holding more contests like this in the future, so you’ll have another chance then. Good luck!

If people at the Schlafly Cabin Fever didn’t know before, they now know what a cold front is.  The day started as a very warm January, so warm in fact I thought I was overdressed.  But that all changed about 2 hours into the festival when the temperature began to drop along with some rain.

That didn’t keep people from having fun though.  The biggest hit had to have been the wooden casks that contained Corsair Triple Smoke Weizenbock and Unoaked Barleywine Aged In Corsair Rasputin.  It was especially fun watching them try and open the casks.

If you couldn’t attend, be sure to check out the photos below.

cabinfeverart.gifI may sound like a broken record, but Schlafly Cabin Fever beer festival is easily one of my favorite festivals in St. Louis. It combines two of my favorite things: beer and weather.

Whenever a beer festival approaches, I’m continuously checking the weather to see what it’s going to be like during the festival. This is a festival where weather is a defining portion of the event.  We’ve had years with snow on the ground and years where people have wore shorts.

While most people probably enjoy it warmer, I think this festival is at its best when beer is beginning to freeze on the tables. Unfortunately for those of us who like it that way, this year is shaping up to be a balmy 54°.  Weather aside, it’s still going to be a great time.

This year’s event will take place this Saturday, January 12th from 12:00-4:00 p.m. Tickets will run you $25 in advance or $30 day of. Tickets are on sale now and you can purchase tickets here. Here’s a look at the beer list (which, as always, is subject to change):

cabinfeverart.gifWhen I began taking photos of Schlafly‘s Cabin Fever festival this past Saturday, I quickly had a photo essay in mind: People that grab their beer and walk away and the people that don’t. You see, Schlafly made an amazing advancement in this year’s Cabin Fever by making use of a good portion of the Bottleworks parking lot to host this festival.

But that seemingly didn’t matter to a lot of folks. Though there was more room than ever to set up a group of people to talk while staying out of the way of people who wanted to get some beer, people continued to set up shop five feet away from the taps.

Needless to say, this was annoying. Luckily, it got better throughout the day as the firepits were set far away from the taps and people started getting cold and moving toward the warm fires.

So, three cheers to Schlafly for attempting to make a beer festival better. And thumbs down to the people who still don’t seem to care.

Anyway, here are some photos if you weren’t able to attend. If you’re wondering why I took pictures of empty parking lot, it’s to emphasize just how much additional space there was.
