Results of Beer Vs. Wine!

The Wine and Cheese Place had a busy and successful week for the  4th Annual St. Louis Craft Beer Week.  We had 4 Beer events during the week and add a scotch class on Tuesday and a wine group on Wednesday night -- we had 6 events in 5 days!  

Both the Goose Island Event on Monday and the Friday night Wine Vs. Beer events were sold out with more wanting to attend.  The Local Breweries vs. America was not a sell out but we had a great crowd and was a lot of fun.  We got a huge turn out also on Friday for the Stone rare beer tasting also.
