This past Saturday was about as good as it gets for St. Louis in January. The weather was sunny and 60° and I scored two free tickets to Cabin Fever Beer Festival at Schlafly Bottleworks!
Big thanks to Beer_Dork for the free tickets! For those unfamiliar, Cabin Fever is basically one big tent full of beer in the parking lot of Schlafly Bottleworks in Maplewood.
18 different beers taps are available for sampling in two ounce pours; lots of reliable standbys like Pale Ale and Hefeweizen and all sorts of interesting specialty beers with remarkably high ABV levels. It’s heaven for a beer lover like me, and the weather made it feel extra heavenly. Dan Krause took my other ticket for the event, and we were surrounded by some of my favorite beer lovers from across the city. The Waiting Room Beer League folks made a strong showing
Along with their designated driver for the day, IAmTylerHarris, pictured here with a sweet-ass portrait he commissioned of himself.
I ran into renowned beer aficionado Richard whom I know from Twitter but had never actually met in person until Saturday
And I ran into a gang of beer lovers I know from North County. Here’s a picture I nabbed from the Riverfront Times Street Team of some of the NoCo crew including Todd Blalock, Dan Krause and Christy Oberlin
Couldn’t ask for a better Saturday in January! Thanks again to Beer_Dork for the tickets!
