Summer festival season is almost here with lots of great events approaching around the country. Be sure to put this one on your calendar: The Second Annual Heritage Festival in St. Louis, Mo., May 8-10. This open-air event brings together local breweries, restaurants and live music to celebrate the long-standing tradition of beer in St. Louis. Over three days, you can sample more than 70 ales, lagers and specialty beers, including the official festival brew, a St. Louis Dark Lager, as interpreted by all eight participating breweries. Also, members of the local homebrew club St. Lewis Brews will be on hand to educate interested festival-goers about home brewing and sample some of their own brews. The festivities kicks off early on Thursday, May 8, with a five-course beer pairing dinner served up by participating breweries and Food Network chef Dave Lieberman.
