MBSL_120461_Ciceros_FirestoneWalkerPatience and will-power.  If you plan on cellaring beer, you need to have both of these items in spades. It’s difficult to see that beer just sitting there and not want to drink it.

Luckily for you, Firestone Walker and Cicero’s have done the hard work for you. This Saturday, September 10th, is Vintage Series Night at Cicero’s.

Starting at 6pm, you’ll be able to enjoy the following beers:

Cicero s L Chaim Time-page-001L’Chaim!

If you weren’t aware, this is a Hebrew toast used in drinking to a person’s health or well-being. To celebrate all of our well-being Cicero’s is partnering with Shmaltz Brewing Company to throw an event they’re calling L’Chaim Time.

Starting at 6PM you’ll have your chance to try four great beers on tap to celebrate the Goliath hops of Shmatlz. Then starting at 6:30PM they’ll begin the dreidel spinning tournament. Best of three chances and the longest time will win.

There will also be a slingshot game using ping pong balls to knock down a Goliath beer company’s cans. And to keep your belly full, there will be matzo ball soup and rye reubens as well.

Head out tonight to celebrate good health and well-being. L’Chaim Time!

ciceros.jpg Cicero’s Italian Restaurant begins their Summer Beer School semester this Wednesday from 6:00-7:00PM. Cicero’s Beer School provides background about beers and beer styles usually directly from people directly in the beer industry.

This week’s school is being taught by, well, me. I’m going to on hand to pretend like I know what I’m talking about and to teach about Witbiers.  We’re going to blind taste four different beers while I probably make a jackass of myself.

So, if you’re interested in seeing me stammer and muddle through a Cicero’s Beer School, tonight’s the night.  I’m sure I’ll see some of you there.

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

So, if you’re interested in getting a true beer training be certain to head out to Cicero’s Beer School tonight. If you can’t make it out to the Beer School, you can check out all of the classes via podcast at Cicerosbeerschool.com.

ciceros-tradeBeer trading can be a contentious topic amongst beer fans.  Some people see it like a baseball card or (more for this generation) Pokémon card mentality. Trading to get the “best” and not worrying what’s in the bottle.

I personally think this is hogwash.  Trading provides people the opportunity to try beers they may not have ever had the chance to try from all over the globe.  Trading also brings people together.  Either to sample the beers gathered via a trade or to trade beer in person (where beers are usually still sampled.)

Cicero’s feels the same way. So they’ve put together an event they’ve dubbed St. Louis Beer Enthusiasts Meet and Greet and Bottle Trade: Episode 1.  This Sunday, May 31st, starting at 2PM, Cicero’s is using their event space to host a beer trading session.

$20 not only gets you in the door, but also provides you with a 5oz pour of Firestone Parabola, Goose Island Bourbon County Stout, and Avery Uncle Jacobs.  And that’s not all!  Your ticket also includes some pizza and appetizers as well as a raffle ticket for some cool beer schwag and some rare bottles..

I’ve been told there will be other amazing drinks to purchase that day.  So, open up your cellar and find some bottles to trade. But don’t feel forced to trade, you’re also welcome to show up and have a great time!

2BROS-2Everything old is new again as Cicero’s, is the launch location for the re-introduction of Two Brothers Brewing in St. Louis. Old?  Well yes, you see at one time we used to get Two Brothers if you were willing to cross the river into Illinois.

But with the popularity of craft beer all over this fine nation, a lot of breweries like Two Brothers had to pull back and support their home market so it dried up for a little bit.  It roared back into Southern Illinois, but it’s now available in St. Louis as well.

To welcome Two Brothers into STL, Cicero’s is throwing a launch party tomorrow, September 12th from 4:30PM until close. Cane and Ebel, Domaine Dupage, and Outlaw will be on tap while bottles of Ebels Weiss, Prairie Path, and Side Kick will be available.

Start your weekend off right by giving Two Brothers a warm St. Louis hello at Cicero’s.
