Beer Links & Events for June 27th!

Hey everyone, time for a few links and events about beer in town...

First on the agenda... tomorrow night (June 28th) there will be an international beer dinner at The Londoner on Sherwood Forest.  I never really thought about it before, but that's the perfect street for a British themed pub.  It's a $65 event, but it features a 5-course meal with each course being paired with a Belgian ale.


Also, as part of the first annual Baton Rouge Beer Fest, The Londoner will be hosting the homebrew competition on Friday, July 1 from 8-10 PM.  

The main event of the Baton Rouge Beer Fest will be Saturday, July 2 from 1-4 PM at the Baton Rouge River Center.  Tickets are $40 in advance or $45 at the door and the event benefits Dreams Come True of Louisiana.  So if you're looking for something to do Saturday afternoon, give it a look!

Also, rumor has it that Jolly Pumpkin (@farmhouseale) beers are in our market now and can be found at some of the usual places like The Cove, Calandro's and Whole Foods.  They are a very highly regarded brewery out of Michigan, and I'm excited to get my hands on some and give it a try!

Cheers, and always drink responsibly.
