For beer lovers, the 6th annual Centennial Beer Festival brings more beers than you ever could possibly sample within a three-hour session to Moulin Events at 2017 Chouteau in St. Louis. Dates for the Festival are February 20-22, 2014.
Just about every craft brewer in metro STL will pour their brews. Beers from around the state, the region, the U.S. and the world are also represented among the 200 or so beers available for sampling. Crown Valley from Ste. Gen will be on hand again, as pictured above from the 2013 festival.
The festival begins with a beer dinner on Thursday, February 20, 6:00 p.m. featuring beers from 4 Hands Brewing paired with food from Moulin. Cost for the dinner is 67.50. In years past, the dinner has sold out.
For 2014, the Festival will have 3 tasting sessions: Friday, 2/21, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.; Saturday, 2/22, 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
The site for the beer fest is part of the long gone Schnaider Brewing Company, which was kind of a big deal in St. Louis back in 1876 when the building was constructed. The structure at 2017 Chouteau served at the Malt House for Schnaider.
The Centennial Beer Festival brings together beers from across the country including Deschutes, Founders, Boulevard, Sam Adams, New Belgium, Avery, Rogue, Tallgrass, Left Hand and more. Click HERE for a link to the 2013 beer fest lineup.
Jason Arnold, who started the beer fest in 2009 to create a fun event for Moulin in the middle of winter, is the man who puts everything together. That’s him above, along with a small sampling of the beers that will be poured come February.
