Drink This Weekend Edition: Beer hop all weekend long

Friday, May 31st, 2013

In theory, every weekend can be a beer-lover’s weekend, but with two beer-centric events taking place this Saturday and Sunday, it’ll be a bonanza for those who love a cold, frosty one.

Saturday marks the date for IndiHop, an annual event at which two eclectic neighborhoods – Cherokee Street and The Grove – celebrate independent breweries. You can sample more than 50 locally-brewed beers (and 3 locally-made sodas) being poured at participating businesses. As you hop from venue to venue you’ll enjoy entertainment by live musicians, artists and street performers. Tickets include an IndiHop glass beer mug, print booklet and shuttle transportation between the two neighborhoods. The event runs from noon to 5 p.m., although shuttles will operate from 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tickets cost $20. Go here to purchase them online today. If you wait until tomorrow, you’ll have to buy tickets in person at the Urban Breath Yoga location in The Grove at 4237 Manchester Ave., or at 2720 Cherokee Performing Arts Center, located at 2720 Cherokee St.

On Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m., beer will flow and barbecue will abound at the Randall’s Wine & Spirits North County location at 11000 Old Halls Ferry Road. Beer and BBQ St. Louis Style will feature beer from more than 30 breweries, including special release beers by Clown Shoes Beer, Founders Brewing Co., and Goose Island Beer Co. Folks from North County ‘cue joint Red The BBQ Man will be filling hungry bellies with barbecued chicken, ribs and side dishes. In addition, they’ll be raffling items like rare beers, a mini-fridge, coolers, a grille, neon signs and more, with proceeds to benefit Florissant-based children’s charity Jamestown New Horizons. Tickets are $20 for beer and ‘cue; $10 for beer only. Reservations are required and can be made by calling Randall’s at 314.741.5100.
