Pork Shop: One Great Event Supporting Two Great Causes

Join us Saturday, May 25th starting at 9am at The Schlafly Tap Room for the 2nd Annual Pork Shop: 
Downtown BBQ & Garage Sale. This is a non-ticketed event featuring over 50 local residents setting-up shop for a one-day downtown yard-sale complete with Schlafly Beer, live music, and a PIG ROAST (actually, six pigs will be slow cooking overnight for the festivities). You’ll also want to make sure to arrive early to try Chef Andy’s fried Beignets. That’s right, we’ll have breakfast tasties for the earlybirds this year. Shop. Haggle. Barter. Hunt for that hidden bargain all while enjoying some great music, food and beer.

Top Fermentation - May 2013

Turmoil in the banking industry isn’t the only crisis to hit Cyprus in the past few years. There was also a major flap involving the KEO Brewery, whose largest shareholder is the Orthodox Church of Cyprus. According to Agence France Presse, a bottle of KEO beer was prominently featured in a movie that included scenes shot in a Greek tavern in New York.
