WINTERWARMER (3) (1)Maybe it’s just the mere mention of warming up the winter from Randall’s Fairview Heights that we’re blessed with 70° temperatures this weekend. Whatever the reason, I’m not complaining.

This Friday, February 19th, from 7pm-10pm Randall’s FVH will be throwing their Winter Warmer Festival with all of the proceeds benefiting Stray Rescue St. Louis. Tickets are $10 each (with purchase of wish list item) or $20 with no item purchase.

You’ll be able to sample some awesome beers including Bourbon County Stout, Buffalo Sweat, Dark Horse’s Plead the 5th and Bell’s Hopslam.  Great beers, great weather, and a great cause, maybe we can convince Randall’s to hold this festival every weekend until May!

STLHops_ShadedTechnically by the time this party takes place, STL Hops will be about 8.5 years old.  But, I like a party and I hope you do as well.  So I’m happy to announce that the 8th Annual STL Hops Anniversary Party will be taking place on Saturday, March 19th.

In the past we’ve held this party at a local brewery, but as all of our locals are getting super big and popular, we’ve run out of room this year.  Luckily David and Gene Bailey are about to open a new event space called Willow (right at 10th and Locust) which is right next door to Bridge. It’s a cool space and I’m honored that they’re allowing us to throw the party there.

We’ll be doing two different price points again this year. We still have the standard ticket which will get you into the party from 6-10PM and will set you back $30. This will get you unlimited samples as well as a commemorative glass.

We’re also doing the VIP ticket again which will cost you $10 more but will get you in an hour early. I’m also going to throw a special raffle for you VIP members for something cool, you’ll get raffle tickets as you arrive. (You can purchase more as well.) There is a limited number of VIP tickets available, so don’t wait for these.

Tickets can be purchased HERE.

This event WILL SELL OUT!  Do not delay in getting tickets.

Again the lion-share of proceeds will benefit Stray Rescue but this year I’m also going to be donating a small portion to the St. Louis Bulldog Rescue. I lost my bulldog last year and I’d like to continue this small gift to honor her. Last year we raised over $10,000 for Stray Rescue and $2000 for St. Louis Bulldog and I know we can top that this year!

We’ll have plenty of auction items for you to try and win and raffles and 50/50 as well. And the Baileys’ Restaurants will be lining up some delicious food for you to purchase.

One cool treat that I’ve already confirmed is thanks to our friends at Goose Island, you’ll be enjoying some Bourbon County Stout Regal on draft. I’ve already gotten some commitments from 2nd Shift, Off Color Brewing, Penrose Brewing, Boulevard, Narrow Gauge Brewing, and Old Bakery. And of course I’ll be making my annual pilgrimage to Chicago so you know we’re going to have some fun treats.

Thank you all for supporting STL Hops over the past 8 years and also donating all of this money to these two great charities!

STLHops_ShadedWe’ve teased it a bit on social media, but it’s finally time to spill the details. I’m happy to announce that the STL Hops 7th Anniversary Party will be taking place on Saturday, November 22nd at Urban Chestnut in the Grove.

We’ll be doing two different price points again this year. We still have the standard ticket which will get you into the party from 6-10PM and will set you back $30. This will get you unlimited samples as well as a commemorative glass. (The glass is pretty cool this year, it looks like this.)

We’re also doing the VIP ticket again which will cost you $10 more but will get you in an hour early. I’m also going to throw a special raffle for you VIP members for something cool, you’ll get raffle tickets as you arrive. (You can purchase more as well.)

Again the lion-share of proceeds will benefit Stray Rescue but this year I’m also going to be donating a small portion to the St. Louis Bulldog Rescue. I lost my bulldog last month and I’d like to do this small gift to honor her. Last year we raised over $8500 and I know we can top that this year!

We once again have Jim Leabig spinning record for those of you that like to boogie. And we’ll have a couple of food trucks available. I can confirm Completely Sauced at this moment. Still lining up one more. There will, of course, be the awesome food at UCBC that will be available for purchase as well.

One cool treat that I’ve already confirmed is thanks to our friends at Goose Island, you’ll be enjoying some Bourbon County Stout on draft. I know we’ve gotten some commitments from other breweries and I’ll be making my annual pilgrimage to Chicago so you know we’re going to have some fun treats.
