50 local beers 2 cool neighborhoods highlight IndieHop ’18

7 years ago, instead of battling for the title of most hippest and eclectic neighborhoods, St. Louis’ two hippest and eclectic neighborhoods joined forces to bring our city what may be one the most unique beer events in years.

IndiHop 2018 harnesses the creativity and vibrancy of both Cherokee Street and The Grove, uniting both in the name of good taste and good beer.

All the fun is this Saturday, June 2nd from 1:00 p.m. to  7:00 p.m.  Tickets are available online and cost just between $20 and $30.

Here is how it works.  With a purchased ticket, participants receive a tasting glass and the opportunity to sample 50 different locally brewed and crafted beers.

Sample beer inside twenty-five businesses in each neighborhood. Shuttles transport folks between neighborhoods and local musicians entertain at each stop. 50 tastes, 18 bands, 5 shuttles!  IndiHop is St. Louis’ only community building beer festival in two neighborhoods!

New to town? 

The Grove is a growing vibrant business and entertainment district along Manchester between Kingshighway and Vandeventer in St. Louis City. In The Grove you can find a diverse mix of independently owned restaurants, nightlife, retail, and services. It is also home to the premier nightlife in the area, and is a thriving center for the LGBT, artist, and cycling communities in the St. Louis area.

Cherokee Street is a vibrant center for commerce, culture, and creativity in St. Louis.  An independent arts community, where a collective spirit prevails – of inclusiveness, collaboration, diversity and enthusiasm – fueled by a by-the-bootstraps DIY ethos.  Named St. Louis’ Mexican-food mecca, Cherokee Street has a large concentration of Latino-owned and operated bakeries, restaurants, shops and grocers.
