St. Louis Brewers Heritage Festival a Success
Sell-out Crowds Pack First Annual Event to Celebrate Beer
Nearly 15,000 adults descended on St. Louis’ historic Forest Park May 11-12 to toast the city’s rich brewing history and sample more than 60 beer styles paired with fine food.
Supported by Anheuser-Busch’s “Here’s To Beer” industry development campaign, the festival marked the city’s first official gathering to re-claim St. Louis as our country’s beer capital by commemorating local brewing history and showcasing the brewing capabilities of Anheuser-Busch, Alandale Brewery, Augusta Brewing Co., Morgan Street Brewery, O’Fallon Brewery, Schlafly Beer and Square One Brewery.
Clear blue skies and lush greenery were the perfect backdrop for this outdoor festival where an Ale tent housed everything from an American IPA to a Strong Scotch Ale; and a Lager tent treated guests to styles including an American Lager and Vienna Lager. Each brewer also created their version of a Dark Lager – a style reminiscent of a popular pre-Prohibition beer.
Delicious cuisine tailored to the beers on tap was available under a nearby tent, while cooking demonstrations from renowned local chefs entertained crowds in another.
Whether they were big or small, each participating brewer saw the Festival as an opportunity to remind adults that beer is one of the most versatile alcohol beverages in the world, and pairs well with a range of cuisines by complementing, and not overpowering complex flavors.
Judging from the overwhelming response from area beer enthusiasts, St. Louis is “Beer Capital U.S.A.”
