There are few festivals as enduring and as impressively organized as The Centennial Beer Festival. Now in its 12th year, Centennial is set to kick off February 28th, for 2 days of all sorts of beer-loving fun. At my count, 60 domestic and international breweries and 35 local and regional breweries of varying sizes and geography will be pouring their brews for you.
Centennial is held in the Lafayette Square neighborhood of St. Louis, in a restored malt house built in 1876 for the Schnaider Brewery. There are multiple historical rooms to explore while you taste more than 200 beers. That is a lot of brew.
Now, if you have attended Centennial in the past, but have never attended the Brewmaster’s Dinner, you may want to give this year’s event a look-see. This year’s 10th annual dinner is hosted by Six Mile Bridge. The dinner is 5 courses, each paired with one of the best from the Maryland Heights brewery.
Enjoy a five-course dinner expertly paired with fantastic beers from our friends Ryan & Lindsay at Six Mile Bridge.
