GIFs (pronounced “jif” and all of you hard G people are wrong) have basically become one of my favorite forms of communications.  If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a moving picture is got to be worth a bajillion.

If I had to put Craft Beer Cellars in Clayton 2nd anniversary party into GIF terms, it would probably go something like this:

Tomorrow, Sunday May 22nd, Craft Beer Cellars throws a 2nd Anniversary party with extended hours from 10AM to 7PM. They’re going to have a kick-ass draught list including:

Perennial Kiwi Berliner
Civil Life Mega Hopped Angel & Sword
4 Hands Contact High w Lime
Firestone Walker Bretta Weisse
Oskar Blues Death By Coconut
Perennial Blue Label Maman

So head out to CBC tomorrow, GIF it up, and party hard.

FestoftheWildWere you looking to get wild this weekend without having to brave Soulard?  Maybe it’s just a bit of wild ale you’re searching out instead?

Then maybe you need to head out to Craft Beer Cellar in Clayton this Saturday, February 6th for their first Fest of the Wild event.  Running from 12PM to 6PM, you’ll have an opportunity to sample a ton of wild ales throughout the day.  Just some of the beers CBC will be tapping include:

  • Tilquin Gueuze
  • Stillwater / Westbrook Gose Gone Wild
  • Firestone Walker Bretta Weisse
  • Firestone Walker Agrestic
  • 4 Hands Cuvee Ange
  • Crooked Stave Surette
  • Grimm Purple Prose
  • New Belgium Le Terrioir

And to make sure that this event is not only delicious but educational, every 30 minutes CBC will be providing some educational presentations from breweries such as Perennial Artisan Ales and some of CBC’s own Certified Cicerones®.

So get out and get wild this Saturday at CBC.

CraftBeerCellarLogoLet me put my old man hat on and recount the dark days of craft beer in St. Louis. It was a simpler time, and by simple I mean you had very little options when it came to buying craft beer in the area. If you found some Schlafly on the shelf in the grocery store, you were thankful and you liked it.

My how far we’ve come.

Not only do we have some sort of craft beer available in almost every watering hole in the area, but we’re seeing places choose St. Louis as a place to put some roots.  Example?  Craft Beer Cellar.  This chain of beer retail was started in 2010 with the philosophy of “Sell[ing] beer for a living and try to keep a fun and laid back spirit.” Fun? Laid back? Craft beer?  Sounds like a perfect fit for St. Louis.

Up until now all of their locations have been located on the East Coast.  St. Louis is the home of their first Midwest location. Well, I’m happy to announce that on Saturday, May 17th, CBC (located at 8113 Maryland Ave. in Clayton) will be officially open for business.  The first 1000 customers to CBC on Saturday will receive a complementary gift bag with a 6-pack sampler along with some swag (as long as you make a purchase.  )

But pssst, I have a secret for you.  To try and get through some of the first days of nerves and shakiness, CBC will be doing a soft opening tomorrow, May 15th with their doors opening at 10AM.

Even better is that CBC is looking to be a big part of the STL Hops community, which means that they’re extending a 10% discount to STL Hops members (who bring in the flyer below) for mix-a-six packs during their soft opening.

I think we can all appreciate more choices in St. Louis and we can appreciate places that recognize their base and want to support them. Pretty exciting news, I’m glad we’re a long way from those dark days of craft beer in St. Louis.
