I’ve got a secret: I really, really, really like poker.  Stud, Omaha, Razz and especially Texas Hold ‘Em.  I’m not especially great at any of them, but that doesn’t stop me from playing.

Now, combine poker and beer and that’s a match made in heaven.  Well, heaven comes on Sunday, April 10th as Naturally Pure Salon hosts a charity event that will feature Texas Hold ‘Em and some homebrew brewed up by some of the area’s best homebrewers.

The event, which will take place from 2PM-6PM at the Shrewsbury City Center, will cost you $50 to play poker (or just $25 to taste the beer) and will benefit the The Audubon Society of Missouri.

Here’s a line up of the homebrewers and the beers they’re bringing:

  • Bryan Clauser – Cider and Doppelbock
  • Jim Leabig – India Brown (2011 GABF Pro-am Beer with O’Fallon) and APA
  • Troy Meyer – Imperial IPA, Rye APA, Vienna Lager, Cider
  • Jim Yeager – Black IPA, American Brown, American Amber (He says he wouldn’t call it Alright Already, but close)
  • Dave Blue – does know what he is donating

Visit the Naturally Pure Salon Facebook page for more information.  If you’re interested in playing (or just tasting) they’ll be taking money at the door.
