Stone in St. Louis

Ok, so this post is 2 months late by now, but the event was monumental enough for us to share for our blog.
Stone Brewery finally made its way to the Show Me State.
And here's what we have to show for it.
This picture is missing a few of the available year-round beers (Pale Ale, Levitation Ale), but this is how we spent our first days celebrating. We enjoyed the events that coincided with the release date. Below is a picture of Greg Koch visiting Cicero's Beer School during Stone's 20 event party celebrating their arrival.
"There's a fantastic craft beer scene in Missouri; of that, there is no doubt," explains Greg Koch, CEO & Co-Founder of Stone Brewing Co. "The St. Louis chapter of the Master Brewers Association of the Americas invited me out to speak to their group last year, and I made sure to stop by the Schlafly Tap Room afterward. Besides having some amazing beer, I got to meet some great people who were very passionate about getting Stone in their hometown."
We were excited.
After attending Ciceros, and buying our profuse amount of bottles, we ventured to the International Tap House (Itap) to attend to TOTAL TAP TAKEOVER. Stone provided over 24 taps of beautiful beer.

... I really cant remember what we had, waiting for steve to reference some of these photos.
I'm guessing the 14th anniv ale, double dry-hopped stone ipa, and the '08 imperial stout.
This is a blurry menu.mmm stout.
and scott.
