9th Annual Celebration of St. Louis Beer Featuring 33 Local Breweries Returns to Forest Park June 12 & 13

Join thousands of St. Louis beer lovers in Forest Park on June 12th and 13th for the annual outdoor celebration of local beer and local breweries called, The St. Louis Brewers Guild Heritage Festival. This year’s Heritage Festival will feature over 100 beer styles brewed by 33 local breweries (33!) as well as some incredible one-off collaboration styles brewed exclusively for the event. In addition to St. Louis’s professional brewers, our region’s home-brew clubs will get to showcase their own creations in Homebrew Village. Dozens of favorite local food trucks and food vendors will provide the fare and nine local bands will play live throughout the weekend.

Each year Heritage Festival has continued to grow and work to improve the overall experience for festivalgoers and 2015 is no different. Changes and improvements to this year’s Heritage Festival include special Early Entry tickets limited to only 500 each session allowing ticket holders entry one hour earlier than General Admission to chat up brewers and begin their sampling before everyone else, more beer styles on offer, more food vendors and greater selection, a larger festival footprint in our beloved Forest Park, an additional daytime session on Saturday afternoon, all with fewer tickets being made available overall for each session to reduce lines and congestion.

The 2015 St. Louis Brewers Guild Heritage Festival is for those 21 years of age and up with a valid photo ID. Tickets are currently available for purchase online at www.stlbg.com/heritage-festival/. General Admission tickets cost $30 in advance and $40 day-of. Early Entry tickets are available for all three sessions, and cost $40 in advance and $50 day-of, if still available. Designated Driver tickets are $5 and must be purchased the day of the event at the gate.

Founded in 2012, the St. Louis Brewers Guild is a 501(c)6 non-profit organization currently made up of 35 breweries located within and immediately surrounding the St. Louis Metro Area, whose purpose is to promote St. Louis as a destination for beer aficionados, both local and tourist.
