Details


The weather is turning cooler, which means the beers you’re drinking should get a little stronger in ABV. At least, that’s what I feel. I don’t usually want to be drinking too much of something that’s 9 or 10% (or higher) when it’s over 100 degrees outside, but when it’s in the 40s and 50s? Ah, perfect. Especially when paired with the changing leaves. Call me a beer romantic. If you’re looking for a good place to start in on some of the higher-octane beers, you’re in luck! From 1-5 on November 3, Beer KC will have its 2nd annual Strong Ale Festival, featuring beers with an ABV of 8% or higher.

The fest will take place at 4057 Pennsylvania, on the street between McCoy’s and Kelly’s. If you’re worried about space, don’t be - it’ll be set up to use more of the street, a little different than has been done in the past. Tickets are $30 in advance, $35 day of, and available at this link: http://www.etix.com/ticket/online/performanceSearch.jsp?performance_id=1663931. The cost includes a commemorative tasting glass, and all the samples you can handle in 4 hours. And, even better, proceeds will benefit AIDS Walk KC.

Now, for the important stuff... the breweries! We’ll have some usual faces, and a whole host of friends from St. Louis! Here we are, the participating breweries in a somewhat alphabetical order
