There's Plenty to Do During The 2014 St. Louis Craft Beer Week

When Americans think of beer, St. Louis is one of the first cities to come to mind because one of the largest beer producers in the world—Anheuser-Busch—is based here. The fact is though, that the city’s history with beer goes back hundreds of years and has spawned a large number of smaller breweries that are being celebrated as part of the 2014 St. Louis Craft Beer Week.

The festivities kicked off this past Saturday, July 28, and will continue until this coming Sunday, August 3. The event features activities and tastings at the dozens of breweries scattered across the city and region, including Urban Chestnut Brewing Company and Six Row Brewing Company.

For those who are looking to get out and experience the best in craft beer that St. Louis has to offer, the St. Louis personal injury lawyers with Cofman Townsley Injury Lawyers point out Perennial Artisan Ales will be releasing a total of nine barrel-aged projects on Tuesday, July 29 beginning at 5 p.m. You can also get a taste of the coveted Bourbon County project at Goose Island Bourbon County Night at Cicero’s, starting at 6 p.m.

It’s important for those considering attending these events to remember that consuming alcohol and getting behind the wheel of a vehicle can be a dangerous combination. In an effort to avoid becoming, or causing another person to become, a drunk driving accident victim, Cofman Townsley Injury Lawyers suggest motorists designate a driver prior to going out. If you don’t have a designated driver, call a cab or ride sharing service to get you home safely.
