strangeinvasionSorry for the delay, you’re probably eagerly awaiting to know who’s the winner of the  iTAP and Strange Donuts Strange Invasion II.

Without further ado, the winner of the VIP tickets to this event is Kevin Carr (who loves the iTAP Soulard location.) Congrats to Kevin and thanks to everyone who entered.

We have one more contest for all of the STLCBW fun. Stay tuned for tomorrow!

strangeinvasionOh, iTAP and Strange Donuts. I owe my robust physique to your delicious beers and dōnes. It’s even more wonderful when the two get paired, which is lucky for all of us in that the International Tap House in the Central West End is throwing another Strange Invasion next Tuesday during St. Louis Craft Beer Week.

While Strange will be giving a limited number of donuts away for free, wouldn’t it be nice to enjoy a VIP experience? Well, thanks to our friends at iTAP, we have two passes to give away which will give you six different beers to sample with a different Strange dōne to pair with it.  Here’s the list of beers that inspired these dōnes:

4 Hands Downfall -Imperial Milk Stout aged in Bourbon Barrels with Raspberries
Donut with White Chocolate & Candied Almonds

Perennial Fantastic Voyage – Coconut Milk Stout
Coconut Fritter with Caramelized Pineapple

UCBC BarenWeisse – Wheat Ale with Strawberries
Mascarpone Cream with Grand Marnier Glaze and Pink Peppercorns/Strawberry Croquant

2nd Shift Katy – American Brett Beer
Salted Caramel Pretzel Done

Schlafly King Kaya – Chocolate Coffee Blonde Ale
Banana Cream, Chocolate Covered Cocoa Nibs

Civil Life – The Angle and the Sword
Lemon Verbena, Blackberry, Golden Streusel

I’m giving you a chance to win the two tickets to this VIP tasting.  All you need to do is email with the subject of VIP Dōnes.  In the body of the email you must include your favorite iTAP Location.

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.
  • If you can follow the bolded directions above. If you don’t follow the rules, you’re automatically disqualified.
  • You must be 21 or older to enter.
  • No multiple entries.

This event takes place from 6-8PM on Wednesday, July 29th at iTAP in the Central West End.  If you don’t end up winning tickets, don’t fret.  I’ve got another contest scheduled for next week.  Good luck!

Edit: Whoops, forgot to mention I’d be drawing for these tickets on Monday, July 27th at 11am.

NHB-color-logo11New Holland Brewing is invading Soulard on Friday, April 10th with two big events going on. First up will be a beer dinner at Pizzeoli.

Starting at 6pm, the dinner will run you $35 and will provide four beers and three courses. The beers include White Hatter, Paleooza Pale Ale, Monkey King Saison, and Dragon’s Milk which will be paired with Neapolitan-style pizzas from Pizzeoli. Call 314-449-1111 to reserve your spot.

Following the beer dinner, New Holland rolls down to Mission Taco Joint in Soulard to debut the collaborative New Holland/Strange Donuts Dragon’s Milk döne.

Beginning at 10PM, Mission will be offering a limited amount of dönes paired with Dragon’s Milk. There will also be a special late night Mission taco paired with Paleooza Pale Ale.



itap-LOGOThings are going to get strange at the International Tap House in Soulard as Strange Donuts and iTAP prepare for an invasion. This invasion involves stouts, donuts, and two different birthdays.

Next Saturday, October 18th, starting at 11AM, iTAP Soulard and Strange Donuts are holding an event they’re calling a Strange Invasion. To celebrate stout season (and Perennial’s 3rd anniversary) iTAP is putting on two of the best stouts around, Founders Breakfast Stout and Perennial 2013 Abraxas.

To celebrate their birthday, Strange Donuts is pairing a donut with each of these beers. For $10 you’ll get a 12oz pour of Founders Breakfast Stout, a branded Breakfast Stout Ceramic Mug or a “Stout Season” Pint Glass, and a Strange Donut.

If you’re looking for some more spice, for $8 you can get a 12oz pour of Abraxas paired with the Mexican Hot Chocolate donut. What a strange way to spend a Saturday (unless you’re like me and drinking beer and eating donuts is how your Saturdays usually go down.)

strange_poster_public_webYou may be saying, “Whoa, wait, I don’t remember seeing a iTAP/Strange Donuts contest!” If you didn’t, that’s because you may not be part of our STL Hops Insider Email. We’ll be doing special contests like this in the future, so make sure to sign up using the form on the right side of this page.

That’s enough of that self-serving garbage, without further ado, the winner of the VIP tickets to this event is Joe Lorenz (who loves the iTAP Soulard location.) Congrats to Joe and thanks to everyone who entered.

This is an awesome event and there will be some delicious beers paired with some delicious donuts.  Make sure not to miss this one.
