Back this year for Pigs and Pints Part Deux. The Block, Macs Local Buys and the Civil Life. From Left to Right.. Marc from The Block, Chris from Mac’s Local Buys, Jake from the Civil Life, Brian from The Block and Dylan Mosley who wowed the crowd with a Sci-Fi speech.
Well it’s back and it’s going to be even better than last years.
What’s New: Bigger Tent. We super-sized from a 30 by 90 to a 40 by 100. We are having two bands play. The first Bottoms up Blues Gang goes on at 12 noon and is followed by FolknBluesGrass at 2 PM This is big news as it is a reunion for FolknBluesGrass and they will be crushing it till 6 PM. You can imagine our excitement to find out we got our first choice and didn’t have to get Eric Clapton. Also: Food will be out from 1 to 3 PM and we are increasing the number of food lines so the line will move twice as fast.
Two new beers from the Civil Life. Our Strong Bitter will debut at 12 noon and at 2PM we will debut our first IPA~ English Style!
What’s the Same: The Block is Back! They have a new location in the CWE and the original location in Webster is still on my list of favorite places to eat. They have been a big supporter of the Civil Life and I am not sure we would even do Pigs & Pints without them. The food last year was stellar. KIDS activities from 12 noon to 2 pm. We have a Face painter and Balloonist coming back and we will have a special kid zone as well.
Skip from Bogart’s and Mike from Pappy’s arranged last year to help us with the massive amount of pig to be cooked and they are helping again this year. These are St. Louis institutions and if you haven’t been to both you very likely are going to get a revoked St. Louisan card in the mail, an eviction notice and possibly a one way ticket to outahere.
Mac’s Local Buys who sources your local meats is sourcing the Pigs from Nick Kluesner for round Two. Chris was really the whole reason Pigs and Pints part one even happened. I was just sitting around here eating bon bons, sipping on martini’s with those fancy umbrellas trying to ring the Bull when one day he showed up and was like, “I remember you from when we were kids.” He told me about Macs Local Buys a way to source local proteins and whammo Pigs & Pints was born.
We’ll be getting bread from our good friends at Companion Bakery and almost a full ton (sort of joking) of ice cream from The Range!
We luckily didn’t have to turn people away last year but this year we are limiting tickets and it will sell out. Please arrange today to purchase your tickets. AVAILABLE AT THE BREWERY! CASH ONLY. $45.00 adults. Kids 5 to 12 $7.00. Under 5 Free! Under 5 must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Actually anyone coming should be a responsible adult.
This is an all day event. Organize a group of friends and get a table. The price did go up a few dollars as we included tax in the total this time. But show me another beer event for $45 (tax included) that goes on for 6 1/2 hours, is all inclusive, has two new beer releases, is ordering over a pound of pig per person, plus sides plus ice cream, is being held on Sunday, May 19th at 3714 Holt and and I’ll give you your ticket for free!
AVAILABLE NOW! I had over ten people tell me Pigs & PInts 2012 was the best day of their life! Don’t be the person we have to turn away on May 19th. No one likes to see grown adults crying in the street, it may actually affect the supreme amount of fun everyone with tickets is having.
Well that’s the story, and we’re sticking to it. Typos and all.
Hello earthlings. I have been sent here to open a brewery. I hope you have time over the next year to check in from time to time and see our progress (or lack there of at times).
