Drink This Weekend Edition: Come one, come all to Lupulin Carnival

March 1st 05:03pm, 2013

When you’re the parent of an elementary school-aged kid, nothing gets you through a painfully slow, boring baseball game like a concessions stand that serves beer. But, outdoor youth baseball hasn’t begun yet, so the place this weekend to spend time with your kid (and your beer) is Lupulin Carnival.

The second annual Lupulin Carnival, hosted by 4 Hands Brewing Co., returns this Saturday from 2 to 6 p.m. Held at the brewery located at 1220 South 8th St., just south of Busch Stadium, Lupulin is both a celebration of great, hop-forward beers – the highlight being the annual release of 4 Hands’ War Hammer Imperial IPA – as well as a carnival with activities to entertain the whole family.

Adult ticketholders can sample the 9-percent War Hammer brewed with Pacific Northwest hops, plus beers by 14 other breweries. The majority of participating breweries are locally-based, while California-based breweries Firestone Walker and Stone, along with Midwestern breweries Toppling Goliath and newbie Pipeworks Brewing Co., will be rounding out the lineup.

Carnival food (pictured) is available for purchase during the event. Playful fare will include atypically seasoned popcorn; cotton candy; beer-battered dogs; and funnel cake topped with cinnamon apple, chocolate mint, or cherry. The Fifth Wheel, the food service at 4 Hands that is operated by restaurateur Dave Bailey, owner of Baileys’ Range, Bridge, Rooster and Baileys’ Chocolate Bar, will be preparing the food.

Besides feasting on food, kids of all ages can feast their eyes on a freak show, an aerial acrobat, a magic show and jugglers; they can even try their hand at High Striker, the wield-a-hammer-to-strike-the-bell carnival game. Other activities include t-shirt printing, live music and a photo booth.

Adults of drinking age who want to sample beer must purchase a $35 ticket. There is no cost for designated drivers or children. Tickets can be purchased online or at 4 Hands the day of the event.
