A Beer Carnival…What could be more fun?!
I am proud to say that I was in attendance at last year’s (inaugural) Carnival – it was one memorable (at least up to the part where the War Hammer started flowing), beery, celebration of the flowering plant we have come to love so well 🙂
This year’s celebration proves to be equally beer-tastic with the eagerly awaited return of War Hammer – Imperial IPA brewed with Pacific Northwest Hops (9%/80 IBU).
Each Carnival goer will receive a commemorative glass to sample a hop forward selection of brews from an impressive list of breweries (list from STL Hops):
Pipeworks (Double Unicorn Revenge Double IPA, Close Encounter Extra Hoppy Double Stout); Firestone Walker (Double Jack, Wookey Jack); Stone (Special Release); New Belgium (Special Release – Rampant Imperial IPA); UCBC (Nelson Sauv IPA, Trafalgar cask); Perennial (IPA #5 – Red IPA, Hommel); Schlafly (Black IPA dry hopped with Simcoe and Mosaic); Square One (Single Hopped IPA, Belgian IPA); Toppling Goliath (Golden Nugget IPA, pseudoSue pale ale); Six Row (DIPA, Whale); Morgan Street (Honey Wheat (with a Randall of cascade hops), Golden Pilsner (with a Randall of Saaz hops)); 2nd Shift (Brew Cocky, Art of Neurosis, Albino Pygmy Puma).
Carnival inspired food from the Fifth Wheel will be available for purchase along with other fun and “freaky” Carnival show attractions.
The Lupulin Carnival will be held on Saturday, March 2nd from 2pm-6pm at 4 Hands Brewing Company located at 1220 S 8th Street, St. Louis MO 63104. Tickets cost $35 and can be purchased through Brown Paper Tickets.
See you there!
