In episode 245 of the Hop Cast, Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder take a trip down to St. Louis for the Midwest Belgian Beer Fest. The Third Annual Midwest Belgian Beer Fest was put on by Perennial and Side Project and this was the first time it wasn’t at the Perennial brewery. This year the festival kicked off St. Louis Craft Beer Week and took place at the Moto Museum.
We had a blast! The fest featured over forty breweries from across the Midwest and a few beyond that as well. Over the afternoon we ran into a ton of great brewers we know from Chicago and even had a chance to grab a few of them on camera to chat about the event.
Be sure to keep an eye out for this event next year because it just continues to get better and its definitely worth checking out.
