itap.jpgDid St. Louis Craft Beer Week start and no one told me?  Between Microfest and Lauren Salazar’s visit, next week is shaping up to be one of the biggest weeks for craft beer in quite some time in St. Louis.

Including the New Belgium party on Wednesday, the International Tap House has two more events that will be taking place next week:

O’Dell Myrcenary Cask (Soulard): Thursday May 5th, 7pm
If you haven’t had this Double IPA from O’Dell Brewery you are missing out on one tasty treat. What’s better than this beer on draught? Hopefully this beer poured from a cask! We will find out for sure on Thursday May 5th at 7pm when we tap the cask! To top it off you can keep an O’Dell pint with the purchase of an O’Dell beer.

Kentucky Bourby Showdown (Soulard and Chesterfield): Saturday May 7th
Put on your best hat for the iTAP version of the Kentucky Derby or as we’ve dubbed it “The Kentucky Bourby”. It’s a can’t miss showdown between two Kentucky studs…Founders Kentucky Bourbon Stout vs Goose Island Bourbon County Stout. Enjoy the horse race while enjoying two incredible stouts. Both beers will be on tap at 1pm.

Mycernary is one of my new, favorite double IPAs, so a cask of it is awesome news. Couple that with what’s gotta be one of the last kegs of KBS in St. Louis and you have a hell of a week of beer drinking.
