image1In case you missed it, Charleville Brewing Co. announced a new location located in downtown St. Louis at 2101 Chouteau Ave.

This new location will serve as a second location for Charleville, allowing everyone the opportunity to enjoy Charleville beers without having to travel to Ste. Genevieve. To preview this new location, Charleville and their new partners the Hamilton Hospitality Group are throwing a little party to show off the space.

This Thursday, October 20th from 5-8pm Charleville will be hosting Boar and Brew. Charleville will be selling four different barrel-aged beers by the bottle:

Flanders Red – aged in oak barrels with cherries
Kick in the Cranberries – aged in white wine barrels with Cranberries
BA Barleywine – aged in bourbon barrels **VERY LIMITED Quantites**
BA Box of Chocolate – aged in bourbon barrels **VERY LIMITED Quantities**

They will also be serving a pig roast dinner with two sides for $11.99 per person. You will also have the opportunity to look over the new space and the blueprints as well.

Congrats to our friends at Charleville for this very exciting announcement!

canjamI’m sure if you did a very intensive search of STL Hops, you’d find many, many posts detailing my love of canned beer. So, I won’t bore you again with all of the reasons canned beer is awesome, instead I’m hoping you find out for yourself.

This Saturday, April 30th from 1pm-6pm, Global Brew in Rock Hill is throwing their inaugural Can Jam celebration. Global GM Cyle Lunsfordhodson wanted to put on a festival to not only serve up some tasty beer, but also, in Cyle’s words, “to shine a spotlight to show that great craft beer comes in cans as well.”

I couldn’t have said it better myself. Some of the participating breweries include, Oskar Blues, Ballast Point, Odell, Logboat, and of course local canned favorite, 4 Hands.

This party will also serve a dual purpose providing Rock Hill with a fun block party for the area featuring some tasty food from some area vendors including Katie’s Pizza & Pasta, The Slider House, and Lucky’s Market.

And if this wasn’t fun enough, Cyle will open a really big can (aka keg) of Goose Island Bourbon County Coffee Stout at 3pm.  There will be live music along with some fun lawn games as well.

So head out to Rock Hill and enjoy the weather and canned beer this Saturday.

STLHops_ShadedTomorrow brings us to the STL Hops 8th Anniversary Party, I thought I’d give you a little update on the eats and drinks that will be available on Saturday evening. It should be a great time and I’m pretty excited about what’s in store. First up, the eats.

The Baileys’ Restaurants make some amazing food and will be selling food to enjoy during the party.  We will also have an area downstairs for people who’d like to sit and enjoy their meal and a beer.

Parking!  As we all know, parking downtown can sometimes be a bit tricky.  Luckily I found a map detailing some areas to park near the venue. (Please note that any area that doesn’t have a price does not currently offer parking.)


Don’t want to deal with parking and want to get home safely?  Our friends at Uber have provided us with a code that gives you $20 off your FIRST RIDE! The code is STLHOPS and it expires after the first 1000 people use it or June 1st, whichever comes first.

Next up, a few do’s and don’ts of the party:

  • Don’t crash the party. We’ll have bouncers and wristbands, so if we see you drinking and you don’t have a ticket, we’ll kindly ask you to leave.
  • Do bring your wallet. We received a ton of AMAZING swag this year, so bring some money along (a check book or credit card wouldn’t hurt for the silent auction) with you as this is for two great causes: Stray Rescue of St. Louis and St. Louis Bulldog Rescue.
  • Don’t bring your own beer. We have A LOT of beer, so no bringing your own bottles of homebrews or commercial beers please.
  • Do bring growlers.  We will probably have a bunch of beer left after this event and we’ll let you fill up a growler for a $10 donation per growler. Bridge will also be selling growlers for $15 (which will include the glass and beer) to donate back to the party. Respect the local breweries that want to take their beer back though.
  • Don’t bring your own glass. Glassware is provided this year.
  • Do eat some food! There will be plenty of food options, so let’s support the Bailey restaurants.
  • Don’t puke. If I see you puke, it means you can’t handle yourself and we’ll kindly ask you to leave.
  • Do be safe. Make sure to have a sober ride home after this event.  We have a lot of big beers and we want you to attend the next party.
  • Do have a great time. Unless your idea of a great time includes puking, then I ask that you stay home.

Here are the beers the STL Hops Homebrew Club will be providing tomorrow:

1. Paul – Whiskey BA Vanilla RIS (random tapping, about 2 gallons), brett beer.
3. Steve A – Dry Hopped Rye Barleywine
4. Rick – Vanilla Imperial Stout
5. Amy – Deep Ellum Double Brown clone (Oatmeal Baltic Porter)
6. Doc – Raspberry Berliner
7. Kyle – Mixed Fermentation Saison
8. Troy – Bretta Sang #2 (yes, that Bretta Sang, homebrew)
9. Sean – Porter
10. John/Troy – IPA
11. Robert – Cascade Pale w/Orange zest and Coriander

If you want to sneak a peek at this year’s program, here you go!

If I didn’t make this clear, we are SOLD OUT. Please do not crash. Please do be safe and make sure you have a sober driver. We will be able to accept credit cards for all purchases this evening!

Thank you all for coming, it’ll be a great time.

STLHops_ShadedDrumroll please!

So, I’m pleased to announce that the winner for the two tickets to the STL Hops Eighth Anniversary Party is Mary Pentecost! Congrats to Mary and thank you everyone for entering.

It’s very exciting to see how passionate people are about beer in St. Louis and this event is proof that people care not only about beer, but also about helping stray animals. Thank you all once again.

Unfortunately, that was your last chance to get tickets because we’re SOLD OUT! Also, look out tomorrow for everything you need to know about Saturday’s party.

STLHops_ShadedLooking for a chance to help out during the STL Hops Eighth Anniversary party and also attend?  Well, you’re in luck, because I’m looking for a few hard-working souls (this won’t be hard-work) to help out at the STL Hops Anniversary Party.

You’ll work a shift and get to enjoy part (or maybe even all) of the party. I’ll need people for set up, during the party, and for break down.

It’s as simple as that. If you’re interested, please email me ( with a subject line of STL Hops Volunteer. I only need a few people, so it’ll probably be first come, first serve.

Stay tuned for additional information about the party on next Saturday along with a chance to win a pair of tickets!

GlobalBrew_MainLogo_RGBPeople like to long for the good old days of craft beer, but I argue we’re in the good old days of craft beer. We have more options, better beer, better glassware, and more knowledgeable people.

One of those places we didn’t have five years ago was Global Brew Tap House in Edwardsville.  And now, five years later Global Brew is still going strong.  To celebrate their fifth anniversary GB is throwing a little party.

This Friday, February 5th at 5PM (get it?) Global is putting on a hell of an event. They’ll be featuring some delicious beers including:

  • Founders Canadian Breakfast Stout and Kentucky Breakfast Stout
  • Goose Island 2015 Bourbon County Stout
  • Dogfish Head Higher Math American Strong Ale AND 120 Minute IPA

There will also be live music and brewery giveaways all night. Celebrate the the good old days of craft beer with Global Brew in Edwardsville this Friday!


33wineIf you weren’t aware, 33 Wine Bar in Lafayette Square is one of the granddaddies of craft beer in St. Louis and always features a robust selection of beers in bottles or draft.

Tonight, January 7th, starting at 5PM, 33 will be featuring:

  • Sculpin – $4
  • Wahoo White – $4
  • Victory at Sea – $5


  • Sculpin – $4
  • Commodore – $4

And if that wasn’t enough, they’re also taking $1 off of all in-store purchases.  Head out and visit one of your elders tonight and enjoy some Ballast Point.
