Moving ahead, we’ll just call them all the 4 Hands family of brands. That is what we’ll call 4 Hands Brewing Co., 1220 Artisan Spirits and Withered Oak, as they are all under the same family tree. And now, all three are coming together for a new fall event, the inaugural 4 Hands Fall Fest.
The festival will take place at 4 Hands Brewery (1220 S 8th St, St. Louis, MO 63104) on Saturday, October 22 from noon – 4 p.m. Fall Fest is a free, family-friendly event with food from Sugarfire Smokehouse, Chicken Out, Hi-Pointe Drive-In and Strange Donuts, live music from Sean Canan’s Voodoo Players, as well as activities for kids. A portion of proceeds from the event will benefit Strange Cares, Strange Donuts’ non-profit organization that supports the behavioral and mental health needs of children in the St. Louis community.

Fall Fest will celebrate the newest “Absence of Light” stout release, “Fat Elvis,” featuring notes of peanut butter, banana and chocolate, alongside the debut of 1220 Spirits’ new canned cocktails, Bramble, featuring Encrypted Vodka with blackberry and lemon, and Vanilla Cold Brew, a vodka-based cocktail with chocolate, vanilla and Sump Coffee cold brew.
STL Barkeep will offer a fall-inspired Withered Oak whiskey cocktail menu and Fall Fest attendees can also purchase the full line of 4 Hands beer and hard seltzers, along with 1220 Spirits canned cocktails on tap.
For the Kids
Fall Fest will have a bounce house for the kids, along with face painting, balloon artists, and pumpkin decorating. Festival-style food will be available outside from Sugarfire, Hi-Pointe, Chicken Out and dessert from Strange Donuts.
“While we are a family of beverage brands, we are first and foremost a member of the community,” says founder and CEO Kevin Lemp. “We are excited to host our first-ever Fall Fest to gather with the St. Louis community and celebrate our city’s great food, music, beer and spirits.”
The week prior to the event, October 17-21, Sugarfire Smokehouse, Hi-Pointe Drive-In and Chicken Out will offer 4 Hands’ Fat Elvis Absence of Light Stout across their locations, along with a special menu item inspired by the festival. Stout lovers can also stop by Strange Donuts for a limited-time Fat Elvis-inspired donut, with peanut butter, banana and chocolate.
