ciceros.jpg Cicero’s Italian Restaurant continues their Winter Beer School semester this Wednesday from 5:30-6:30PM and a second class from 7PM-8PM. Cicero’s Beer School provides background about beers and beer styles usually directly from people directly in the beer industry. It’s perfect opportunity to learn more about a style you’re unfamiliar with or to just brush up on a style you haven’t enjoyed in a while.

This week’s school is all about Magic Hat Brewing. A representative will be on hand to discuss and sample some #9, Vinyl Amber Lager, Elderbetty and their IPA on Tour. Go out and take advantage of one of the few places where you can drink and learn!

If you can’t make it out to the Beer School, you can check out all of the classes via podcast at

Molly Darcy’s Pub in Clayton is hosting a Magic Hat beer dinner on Thursday, November 1st beginning at 6PM. Reservations can be made by calling (314) 863-8400.

I’ve made a change in how the beer tastings will be listed in the Friday Round-Up, it’s going to be a week’s worth of tastings starting with the Friday that the list is posted. So if you’re a retail shop, bar, restaurant, brewery or distributor and want me to list your tasting, make sure to email me at

Today, from 4PM to 6:30PM the Wine and Cheese Place in Clayton will be having a tasting featuring Founders Harvest Wet Hop, DeProef Witte Noir, Fantome Black Ghost, Harviestoun Bitter & Twisted, Stouterik Brussels Stout, Samuel Smith Cherry Ale, and Anchor Liberty Ale. Additional information can be found at their blog.

The Schnuck’s Market on Dorsett will be hosting a representative from Magic Hat to taste some new Magic Hat beers that will be coming into the area. The tasting will be tonight from 5-7pm.

Once again, if you’re a retail shop, bar, restaurant, brewery or distributor and want me to list your tasting, make sure to email me at

If you’ve been paying attention to the Wine and Cheese Place Blog or to the Beer Advocate forums this information may be old news for you, St. Louis is about to get three new breweries in 2009 thanks to Missouri Beverage and Summit Distributing.  Next year we’ll see the introduction of Magic Hat out of South Burlington, Vermont, Tommyknocker from Idaho Springs, Colorado and New Holland Brewing Company located in Holland, Michigan.
