fortunetellerAs I keep getting older time seems to be passing much faster. For instance, I can hardly believe that The Fortune Teller Bar is celebrating their third anniversary. It seems like it just opened yesterday.

To help mark this momentous occasion, FTB has teamed up with Schlafly to put on a tap takeover taking place this Sunday, November 8th beginning at 4PM. Not only will this tap takeover feature specialties such as Coffee Stout and the new White Lager, but you’ll also have a chance to try their newest IBEX offering, the Eleventh Labor.

An ode to Hercules – whose pursuit of apricots proved just as successful as ours – The Eleventh Labor is an exceptional example of the 16th century style wheat beer that’s fermented in a housemade culture for a slight sourness and with apricot pure for a subtle sweetness.

Head out to The Fortune Teller Bar on Sunday to help them celebrate three amazing years on Cherokee Street!

2015hopinthecityAre you the procrastinating type? Were you planning on waiting until the last minute to buy your tickets to Schlafly Hop in the City? Well today is your lucky day, STL Hops is giving away three sets of passes to this Saturday’s session of Hop which includes this year’s festival beer, the Gose.

This $60 value will allow you to partake in one of the best beer festivals in the area. All you need to do is email with the subject of “Hop in the City 2015” and tell me your favorite of Schlafly’s 40+ different beer styles.   A couple of quick notes:

  • If you’ve won something from STL Hops in the past 6 months, please be cool and let someone else enter.
  • You much be 21 or older to enter.
  • No multiple entries.
  • If you don’t think you’ll be able to attend, please don’t enter. I’d like to make sure that people available to attend have a chance to win.

I want to thank the team from The St. Louis Brewery for providing the tickets to this event. This contest will end on September 17th at 9AM CDT when I will pick three winners at random.

femme_ferment_logo_BWAnniversaries are worth celebrating, especially when that anniversary celebrates an organization that focuses on women in the craft beer industry. To celebrate their first year in St. Louis, Femme Ferment worked with Schlafly to create a collaborative beer.

To celebrate the season, Femme Ferment and Schlafly decided to brew up a Maibock as “a nod to St. Louis’s German heritage”. Called “Femme Bock the Elder”, this 6.0% lager was “dry-hopped” with elderflowers to impart a floral aroma reminiscent of spring time.

This beer will be tapped at 11AM tomorrow, May 8th at both the Tap Room and Bottleworks. Festivities to celebrate spring and Femme Ferment will begin at 5PM at the Tap Room which will include a Maypole and dancing (weather permitting).

Head out to the Tap Room (or Bottleworks) tomorrow to celebrate Femme Ferment and spring!

ibexI’ve got some good news and bad news for you. And frankly the good news is only good for two people.

I’m pleased to announce that the two winners for two tickets to the Schlafly Ibex Series Launch Party are Sidney Rehg and Ruth Mueller! Congrats to Sidney and Ruth, I hope they have a great time.

The bad news is that this event is SOLD OUT! But I know this won’t be the last Ibex beer coming down the pike, so don’t fret, you’ll enjoy some delicious beer soon.

I once again want to thank the folks from Schlafly for donating the four tickets to this fantastic event. If you didn’t win, I’ve definitely have some cool contests lurking around the corner.

ibexTo celebrate their origins and the ingenuity of their brewers, Schlafly has started a new line of limited release 750ml bottles that they’ve dubbed the Ibex Series. The name goes back to the original Schlafly logo which featured the ibex that’s on the Schlafly family crest.

While the imagination of kind of beers available in this barrel-aged series will be unlimited, they won’t be able to say the same for the number of bottles produced. The launch this new series Schlafly is throwing a party this Saturday, April 18th beginning at 12PM.

Here’s the bummer, if you haven’t bought your tickets, then you’re out of luck. It’s sold out. But, your friends at Schlafly want to give you at least one last chance to attend this party. Schlafly has provided STL Hops with four tickets to give away to this event.

We’ll make this an easy contest, just email with Ibex Series as the subject. I’ll pick two winners Thursday, April 16th at 9AM. A couple of quick notes:

  • If you’ve won something from STL Hops in the past 6 months, please be cool and let someone else enter.
  • You must be 21 or older to enter.
  • If you can’t attend, please don’t enter.
  • No multiple entries.

Good luck!
