The 7th Annual Lupulin Carnival is Saturday, May 19th.  If you haven’t purchased tickets yet, you can do so by following this link OR, you can try your shot at winning a pair of free GA tickets on our facebook page by clicking right here!

The thing I love about beer festivals of this magnitude is the guest brewers who come to town specifically to introduce themselves to the St. Louis market.  I’ve perused the brewery list and I’m creating a game plan to make sure I get to try as much beer from the following out-of-towners as I can, based simply on the fact that I’ve never tried any beer from any of them.

3 Beers I hope They Bring

  • Basement | 7.5% ABV | 40 IBU

  • Hooligan | 7.0% | 50 IBU
    • Hooligan brings big tropical flavor from the Galaxy and Mosaic hops — passion fruit, mango, and pineapple galore with just a hint of biscuit from pale malt. Including berry notes, the aroma keeps the hops forward.
  • Westside | 7.8% | 65 IBU
    • Westside IPA is our take on the West Coast-style with an aroma of resinous piney hops up front, an inviting caramel malt backbone, and a boozy bite to boot. You can taste all the malt up front with a lingering pine and rolling citrus hop punch that measure on the Richter scale
