edgewild-logoIs it just me or does there seem like there are less beer dinners?  And I mean that in a good way.  I remember seeing a beer dinner pop up almost every other week.  It just didn’t seem sustainable.

Personally, I prefer seeing quality over quantity and that’s what Edgewild Bistro & Tap has done by teaming up with Founders Brewing Company to put on a killer dinner this Thursday, May 12th.

Beginning at 6PM you’ll get four courses paired with, wait for it, eight beers!  And not just any beers, these are cream of the crop:

Course 1 
Ahi Tuna 
seared and served with black raspberry-jalapeno glaze, curly endive, toasted macadamia nuts, and rosemary-cocnut oil vinaigrette
Beer Pairing: Rubaeus and Red’s Rye IPA 
Course 2
Duck Confit 
slow braised duck leg, squid ink spatzle, local spinach, and spiced roast peaches
Beer Pairing: Dirty Bastard and Old Curmudgeon 
Course 3
Morel Prime Ribeye 
grilled center cut ribeye filet, roasted garlic broccoli rabe, harissa smashed red potatoes, and morel-red wine sauce
Beer Pairing: KBS and Porter 
Course 4 
Tropical Terrine 
with rum soaked fruit, blood orange reduction and candied grapefruit
Beer Pairing: Mango Magnifico and Azacca

The price of the dinner is $55 per person or $100 per couple and a few reservations still remain. You can make reservations by calling (314) 548-2222.

oshays halloweenO’Shay’s Pub in the Grove is pulling double duty this Friday, October 30th putting on two events at the same time. Starting at 7PM O’Shays will finish off their Head 2 Head Blind Flight contest featuring New Holland Brewing Company and Founders Brewing Company.

Each brewery has faced down a number of competitors at O’Shay’s and now has reached the finals. Each brewery puts forth it’s best beer and you judge the blind. Let the best brewery win!

O’Shay’s will also be hosting a costume contest on Friday as well. But this isn’t any ordinary costume contest, each costume for the contest has to be beer related. Beer styles, beer names, breweries, anything beer related will work. Most creative contest wins.

All of the fun starts at 7PM, head out for a double dip of good times.

Global Brew Tap House in O’Fallon will be holding their second All Day Fest tomorrow, Friday, August 14th from 1PM until close.  They’ll be featuring over 20 (?!) Founders Brewing beers on tap along with special tappings of KBS, Blushing Monk, and CBS.

Unfortunately, CBS is tickets only and tickets are sold out.  Fortunately, they do have a few extra pours that will be available after 10PM. They’ll also be featuring some casks, music, and a appearance from VIP brewer Diamond from Founders.


It may not be March, but the luck of the Irish is upon you as O’Shay’s Pub is putting on a killer event featuring Founders Brewing Company.  Starting at 7PM, O’Shay’s will be tapping a keg of Porter, Rubaeus, and the always palate splitting Devil Dancer.  They’ll also feature cans of All Day and Centennial IPA as well.


logo-bridge-wpI hope you have your drinking shoes on because as the weather is warming up, we’re seeing more and more events going on around town. The Bridge Tap House has not just one, but two killer events they’re putting on in the next two weeks.

Next Monday, April 27th, Bridge will be featuring a Deschutes Brewery tap takeover and hosting Deschutes master blender Anthony Stone. Starting at 5PM, Bridge will be featuring  Mirror Mirror 2014, Mirror Pond, Black Butte XXV, Obsidian Nitro Stout and Fresh Squeezed IPA.

Then on Thursday, May 7th, Bridge will be hosting a Founders Brewing tap takeover featuring the one, the only KBS.  The best part about this tap takeover is that it’s kind of a match off against big sister, little sister.  Bridge will be doing side-by-side pourings of Breakfast Stout/KBS, Rubeaus/Blushing Monk, Dirty Bastard/Backwoods Bastard (2014) and Old Curmudgeon.

MBSTL_113267_FoundersCrewDrive_IntlTapHouse (1)This coming Monday February 16, the Soulard location of the International Tap House is hosting the crew from Founders Brewing Company. There will be 20 members from the Founders sales staff from the lower 48 states in town for this party and you’ll be able to enjoy a selection of drafts including:

  • Red’s Rye
  • Porter
  • All Day IPA
  • Breakfast Stout
  • Nitro Oatmeal Stout

But here’s what makes this a truly unique event. All of the members of the Founders’ team will be bringing a bottle from their personal cellar to open that night with the crowd. You never know what they’ll have up their sleeves. You are also invited to bring a bottle if you’d like to share with the crowd.

This party starts at 8PM and goes “until the beer runs out.” So head over to Soulard Monday night for this great opportunity. See you there!

itap-LOGOThings are going to get strange at the International Tap House in Soulard as Strange Donuts and iTAP prepare for an invasion. This invasion involves stouts, donuts, and two different birthdays.

Next Saturday, October 18th, starting at 11AM, iTAP Soulard and Strange Donuts are holding an event they’re calling a Strange Invasion. To celebrate stout season (and Perennial’s 3rd anniversary) iTAP is putting on two of the best stouts around, Founders Breakfast Stout and Perennial 2013 Abraxas.

To celebrate their birthday, Strange Donuts is pairing a donut with each of these beers. For $10 you’ll get a 12oz pour of Founders Breakfast Stout, a branded Breakfast Stout Ceramic Mug or a “Stout Season” Pint Glass, and a Strange Donut.

If you’re looking for some more spice, for $8 you can get a 12oz pour of Abraxas paired with the Mexican Hot Chocolate donut. What a strange way to spend a Saturday (unless you’re like me and drinking beer and eating donuts is how your Saturdays usually go down.)
