cellarbration IISome of us nerdy people like to hold on to beers. We keep them all nice and cozy in our little cellars waiting for that perfect opportunity to crack them open.

But sometimes the perfect opportunity is to just head to your cellar and pop something open for your own enjoyment. Well, Llywelyn’s Pub agrees with that idea and wants to throw a little party to pop open some bottles from their cellar.

That Saturday, March 5th, starting at 9:30AM, Llywelyn’s in Webster is throwing a Cellarbration. They’re going to be busting out some cool bottles from their cellar for you to purchase and enjoy. (And if you haven’t had a chance to try their new brunch, you should, it’s pretty delicious.)

Bottles will include Goose Island BCS variants, Firestone Walker variants, some of the Goose Sour Sisters, and some other rare goodies.  The 4 Hands Apple Brandy Woodsman will be on draft along with the Perennial Jameson Whiskey collab.

So, no need to bust into your cellar when Llywelyn’s will do it for you.

50 shaded llywIf you love puns or wordplay, you should love the craft beer industry. I can’t think of a single larger conglomeration of this literary technique than in this fantastic community.

On that note, Shmaltz Brewing is putting on a very special event, tomorrow night at Llywelyn’s Pub in Soulard. Starting at 6PM, you’ll have your first opportunity to enjoy all three of the MANNAge Trois IPA variants in an event they’re calling 50 Shades of Grain.

For the first time in Missouri, you’ll be able to try on tap:

  • Hop Manna IPA – our signature single IPA with West Coast Hop Editions and a pronounced malty backbone
  • Hop Mamma IPA – This is a slightly lower ABV IPA with Peach, Apricot, and a slight hint of Habanero.
  • Hop Mania IPA – A slightly higher ABV version of Hop Manna brewed with even more hops!

Be a slave to your desire for beer and head your way out to Llywelyn’s, slap down some money, and choke down some delicious beer.  (Even I am not immune to wordplay!)

HopsdayThough the site is named “STL Hops” I wasn’t really much a fan of hoppy beers when I got into a craft beer.  Like olives or stinky cheese, I think hoppy beers can be kind of an acquired taste.

I think I may have told this story before, but I was visiting a friends house about 7 years ago and all he had to drink was a 1/2bbl of Sierra Nevada Celebration.  Matt was not the kind of guy you refused free beer from, so I sucked it up and drank multiple pints.

The next day I found myself craving Celebration and the rest is history.  To this day, Sierra Nevada Celebration remains one of my favorite beers of all time. So much so that I usually order a keg every November.

The point to this story is that wet/fresh hopped beers are delicious.  To celebrate this most wonderful time of the year, Llywelyn’s Pub in Webster is throwing a Wet/Fresh Hop Celebration.

They’ve lined up one of the best list of fresh and wet hopped beers I’ve seen in one spot in St. Louis for your enjoyment.  Here’s a list:

  • Lagunitas Born Yesterday
  • Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale
  • Sierra Newly Developed Hop IPA
  • Sierra Nevada Northern Hemisphere Wet Hop IPA
  • Boulevard Deep Dive Fresh Hop
  • Odell’s Hand Picked Pale Ale
  • Great Divide Fresh Hop
  • Left Hand Warrior
  • Founders Harvest
  • Uinta Wet Hop
  • Two Brother’s Hop Centric
  • Deschutes Chasin’ Freshies
  • Deschutes Hop Trip
  • Excel Hop Heist
  •  New Holland Hopivore

All of the beers go on tap tomorrow, November 21st at 11AM.  If you’re not a hop fan, maybe this experience can be as enlightening as my first foray into hoppy beers.

saints of shmaltzThere is no such thing as too much of a good thing, but how about too much of two good things? Well the only way to find out is by visiting Llywelyn’s Pub in St. Charles this Friday, November 20th.

Beginning at 8PM, you’ll have your opportunity to only enjoy a creation from local favorite Cathedral Square Brewing and the always enjoyable Shmaltz Brewing in an event they’re calling Saint of Shmaltz. Owner Jeremy Cowan of Shmaltz and Brewmaster Brian Neville of Cathedral Square have collaborated a few times over the years and this event celebrates that fantastic partnership.

You’ll have a chance to not only try the St. Lenny’s Belgian Rye DIPA collaboration along with some other favorites from Shmaltz including the Chanuakah Beer, Hop Manna IPA, and She’Brew Triple IPA. This will also be your opportunity to taste their newest collaboration the St. Jewbelation Sour Rye.

So head out to Llywelyn’s in St. Charles on Friday to find out if two is too much of a good thing (it’s not.)

llywelyns-243x300I’ve liven in St. Louis my whole life and I can say I’ve never known a world without Llywelyn’s Pub. Opened in the Central West End in 1975, Llywelyn’s is celebrating their 40th anniversary this weekend.

Starting at 4PM tomorrow, Saturday, November 14th until close, all St. Louis locations of Llywelyn’s Pubs are throwing birthday bashes to celebrate this momentous occasion. Each STL location will feature special pricing from the past including those delicious handmade chips for 60¢, shepherd’s pie for $5.95 and their famous fish and chips for $6.95.

Llywelyn’s also worked with 4 Hands Brewing and Perennial Artisan Ales where each brewery created a special stout for Llywelyn’s and each aged them in a Jameson barrel.  The 4 Hands collab will be at Soulard, Winghaven, Wildwood, and Webster Groves.  While the Perennial will be available at Central West End, Webster Groves, and St. Charles.

There will be a ton of prizes, beer specials and a bunch of cool things starting at 4PM tomorrow, so visit Llywelyn’s and wish them a happy birthday.
