If you haven’t cleared your schedule for next week, do so now: St. Louis Craft Beer Week is upon us.

It begins today, July 28, and features more than 130 events scattered across the metro area during its nine-day span. Sip suds at beer dinners, tap takeovers and a rare beer tapping sprinkled in here and there, and learn from industry professionals and drinkers alike. Enjoy the beer camaraderie and education, STL, and stay safe.

 
1. If you miss your college days like I do (Madison, Wisconsin is perfect in the summertime.), then enjoy Sunday Funday on July 30 at Beer Olympics at Charleville Brewing Co. and Tavern. Starting at 1 p.m., witness Herculean feats during drinking games like beer pong (an undergraduate staple of mine), corn hole and flip cup. And if Long White Cloud Pilsner is flowing, don’t miss it.

2. Odell Brewing takes over the taps at The Crafty Chameleon in Ellisville on Aug. 1 at 7 p.m. Enjoy pours of malt-forward 90 Shilling, hop bomb Myrcenary and Brazzle, the sour and funky oak-aged ale that sat on golden raspberries. Super rep Jake Snyder will raffle off an Odell river tube – summer ain’t over yet, y’all.

3. South Grand Avenue staple and vegetarian restaurant Tree House hosts organic brewery Old Bakery Brewing Co. for a fantastic eco- and veggie-friendly five-course beer dinner on Aug. 2. Spaces are available for two seatings at 5:30 and 8 p.m. Pro tip: Check out the menu on the STLCBW website. A peach-coconut ice cream float with OBB’s Cerveza con Lima? yes, please!

4. When a group of female craft beer industry professionals get together, some really wonderful things happen. Join these women (some of whom are pictured above) from breweries like Side Project Brewing, Civil Life Brewing Co., Earthbound Beer, Perennial Artisan Ales and many more for the Aug. 3 release of NaSTLy Woman, an oak-aged sour brown ale full of empowerment and beauty, at 6 p.m. at 2nd Shift Brewing Co. Proceeds from this collaboration benefit Planned Parenthood.

5. International Tap House in Soulard hosts its seventh annual Firkin Fest on Aug. 5. This showcase of real ale, or beer on cask, is truly a fun concept. Nowhere else in St. Louis will you find this variety of cask beer. Starting at 2 p.m., iTap lines the bar top with 5-gallon firkins, and when the time is right, wallops each barrel with a mallet, spurring the flow of beautiful, uncarbonated beer served at proper cask temperature.
