Schlafly Beer Dinner

When I used the restroom the other night at One80 I became fascinated with something. Wait, that didn't come out right...let's start over.

I noticed the other night in the bathroom at One80 a flyer for a rather fabulous beer dinner. I don't usually go for such things because they're always real expensive and if I'm going to spend $40 on a meal, I'm going to go to Bluestem or Michael Smith. That being said, I'm a sucker for cassoulet so this beer dinner sounds pretty worthwhile; the Schlafly 6 Course Beer Dinner at McCoy's Public House (you should also check out McCoy's blog). The beers featured are Biere de Garde, Grand Cru, Tripel, Quadrupel, Barrel Aged Imperial Stout and Oak Aged Barley Wine. All beers are high alcohol so you're sure to have a good time (they lie when they say that you can have fun without alcohol). All the beers will be presented by Schlafly brewmaster Steven Hale. Check out the flyer for the food and beer pairings. Reservations are required so call McCoy's at 816-960-0866 or email them here.
For a slightly cheaper option with less food, the Saucer has a Schlafly beer dinner also presented by Steven Hale on Monday, July 6. Refer to the below flyer for info.


  1. Hmmm, and on my birthday, too. May have to work that into my plans!

  2. I sent in my reservation request the other day. It sounds too good to pass up (both the beer and the food).

  3. Spoke to Todd at McCoys - this will take place on the Foundry side at 7pm, and they're closing the whole bar to the public (beer dinner people ONLY).

  4. Thanks JJSKCK.
    If you had trouble getting a seat for it before, it is now opened up again til they fill the restaurant. I believe another 30 are available.
    Hope to meet some of you.
