royaleJust about every Tuesday evening, The Royale’s Matt Thenhaus hosts an event where he guides you through the wonderful world of beer styles and beer history. This week he’ll be featuring an event he calls: “An Evening with Stone Brewing.” Here’s a quick synopsis of what will be on tap:

If you’ve been paying attention, you already know the deal. But if you’re unfamiliar with Stone, it’s time to drink the Kool-Aid! These crazy Californians have got it bad for the hop, and work to harness its power to destroy the scourge of bland beer forever. Using the American IPA as their canvas, the mad geniuses of San Diego create expressionist works of high-octane, hop-heavy madness that have sent American craft beer drinkers into paroxysms for years.

These notorious beers have just hit Missouri for the first time, and they’ve already been the cause of much celebration. Keep an eye out around town for different styles, but join us tonight for a few of their year-round classics.


Arrogant Bastard Ale
Cali-Belgique IPA
Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale
Ruination IPA

As Matt is extremely passionate and extremely knowledgeable this is a great opportunity to not only enjoy some great beer, but to learn about just some of the great styles of beer we have available in St. Louis.
