excelEveryone loves a birthday. The Royale just celebrated their 10th anniversary of serving tasty drinks and food in Tower Grove South. Excel Brewing is celebrating their 3rd anniversary and the Royale wants to help them party in style.

Tonight, beginning at 6PM, the Royale will be tapping four of Excel’s finest beers.  One beer for each year they’ve been open (and one to grow on!) They’ll be tapping:

  • Forbidden Island – Their newest DIPA
  • Winter Warmer
  • 2nd Anniversary Rye barrel-aged Baltic porter
  • 3rd Anniversary Red wine barrel-aged saison

There may be some other special beers being opened and some other fun things going on as well. Celebrate three years of Excel at the Royale tonight!

excelExcel Brewing in Breese, IL celebrates three years of making kick-ass beers this Saturday, September 19th by throwing a equally kick-ass anniversary party.  They’re throwing this party at the brewery in Breese.

Beginning at 2PM, your ticket (which is $30 right now and $40 at the door) gets you unlimited pours of beer, snacks, “and one of those sweet 4 oz tasting glasses.” There are also $10 designated driver tickets available which gets your DD some soda and snacks.

If a party wasn’t enough to celebrate, Excel is also releasing two specials beers to consecrate this momentous event.  I’ll let head brewer Rod Brewguiere take over for the description:

We’ll also be releasing our 3rd Anniversary Saison which has been aging in red wine barrels for the past 9 months and Forbidden Island, a 10% ABV DIPA brewed with all New Zealand hops. Bombers of said saison and NZ DIPA will be available for purchase along with a very limited amount of 2nd Anni Porter and Ryeday we’ve been saving.

They’ll also be pouring:

  • Lefty’s Lager
