royaleJust about every Tuesday evening, The Royale’s Matthew 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: “It Doesn’t Taste Like Metal Anymore: ExtravaCANza 2010“. Here’s a quick synopsis of what will be on tap:

Tonight we toast a farewell to the stigma of canned beer. The can is the craft beer containment vessel of the future for so many reasons–flavor protection, ecological impact, convenience, accessibility–that small brewers everywhere have begun to proclaim Yes We Can!

Featuring Schlafly Summer Lager, O’Fallon Wheach, Lion Stout and a few very special surprise guest cameos

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.
