December is ON …and you’re ready for the fun. Well good, because we’ve got this! From the nation’s coolest beer events, to movies, music and cutting edge TV – we’ve got you covered. Plus we’ve another weekend beer pick for you, because we know you’ll be drinking.
A Beer Festival You Need To ‘Czech Out” (St. Louis, MO) – The 2018 Great St. Louis Czech Beer Festival is returning to the “Gateway City” this Saturday, December 8th and it’s always a good time. Once again the American Czech Educational Center in South St. Louis is hosting this afternoon celebration of pilsners which has been expanded last year to include what they quaintly refer to as “quirky ales of America.”
On The Big Screen – It’s the holiday movie season when family films like the second in J K Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts franchise RULE. Visually dazzling, always atmospheric and even occasionally fun, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald continues the saga of a magical beast hunter (Newt Scamander) as he navigates old New York’s secret community of witches and wizards seventy years before Harry Potter.
TV Time & Streaming – There’s so many admirable long-form television dramas to pick from today that quality presentations like AMC’s The Little Drummer Girl might fall through the cracks. Based on John le Carré’s best-selling novel, this six-part miniseries set in the late 1970s weaves a tale of espionage and international intrigue as it follows young, idealistic actress whose relationship with an Israeli intelligence officer, leads her into a complex world of duplicity and danger. Good stuff…
THE ACB WEEKEND BEER PICK
This weekend we’ll be drinking dark and decadent with something from Schlafly Beer’s 2018 Stout Bout Variety 12-Pack. Inspired the popular South American whipped delicacy, Schlafly Dulce De Leche Stout is a delicious 5.7% ABV dessert stout that’s been skillfully spiced with cinnamon, caramel, vanilla and mocha.
