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.

globalIf you’re the superstitious type, Friday the 13th could mean bad things.  Global Brew Tap House in O’Fallon is trying to take some of the stigma out of this day by putting on a “killer event.”

Beginning at 1PM, this Friday, March 13th, GBO is holding an event that they’re calling Funky Friday. They’ve got a murder’s row of delicious funky beers to make your mouth happy.

This crazy sour line-up includes:

  • New Belgium Le Terroir
  • Boulevard Saison Brett
  • Jolly Pumpkin/Anchorage Calabaza Boreal
  • New Holland Blue Sunday
  • 2013 Goose Island Lolita
  • Green Flash Anniversary Sour Pale
  • Jolly Pumpkin/Upland Persimmon Ship
  • Perennial Last Word
  • Scratch Sour Gruit
  • Stone Passion Project

And while it may not be funky, they’ll also have on a firkin of Stone Go-To IPA with cantaloupe as well. So, don’t be afraid of the 13th, get funky and head out to Global Brew in O’Fallon this Friday.

globalThe big game is coming up, and by “big game” I mean the Super Bowl. Ask any of my friends and they’ll tell you just how little I know about football. I enjoy watching it (if it’s on) and understand the basic rules, but I couldn’t tell you the difference between a shotgun or pistol formation.

But I do know that the Super Bowl is typically the best of the best. (Other than that drubbing last year; what a terrible game.) It’s an opportunity to (typically) see the best players of the year bring it. How is this related to beer? Well, I think Global Brew Tap House is feeling the Super Bowl fever and is bringing out their best as well.

This Friday and next Friday will see Winter Warmer events at each of the Global Brew locations. This Friday kicks off with the O’Fallon location featuring these beers:

And next Friday, January 30th, will see an equally awesome list of tasty black beers for your enjoyment at the Edwardsville location:

globalIf years of watching PBS as a child has taught me anything it’s that education is a wonderful thing. You know what makes learning even better? Beer. Global Brew Tap House knows that beer and education are a natural mix so they’ve tapped (pun intended) their own Certified Cicerone Zachary Pohlman to lead beer school classes twice a month at their two locations.

Classes take place the first and third Monday of every month at the O’Fallon location and the first and third Wednesday at the Edwardsville location.
