What do you get when you combine General Ulysses S. Grant, an awesome local rock band and FREE beer and food from some of St. Louis’ best brewers and restaurants? Why, #DrinkupTweetup of course! We’re putting out the call once again to the St. Louis twitterverse to converge on the garden of the Campbell House Museum on Friday, September 25 starting at 5:00 p.m. for an evening of fun focused on St. Louis history through the lens of beer, wine and spirits. We’re partnering with Distilled History – an award winning and all around excellent blog written by Campbell House docent Cameron Collins to bring you up to speed on the ins and outs of booze’s role in the growth and evolution of St. Louis as a major Midwestern city.
In addition to FREE beer (provided by our pals at Urban Chestnut and Schlafly) and food, we’ll be raffling off a series of great packages including St. Louis brewery tours, six-packs of special edition Campbell House-themed home brew and history-themed outings. The grand prize? A shot of the winner’s choice from a sterling silver cup once owned by General Ulysses S. Grant – PRESENTED to the winner by Grant himself (AKA an excellent historical interpreter who will be attending in full character and costume).
Typhoon Jackson, our resident Americana/folk/blues/rock band will play the entire night, making our little corner in downtown St. Louis the place to be. This is not to be missed – help us spread the word and share your attendance using #DrinkupTweetupSTL on Twitter and “attending” our event on Facebook. Let’s make this the best one yet.
