IndiHop beer festival tours The Grove and Cherokee Street

Hop between The Grove and Cherokee Street during IndiHop, one of St. Louis’ most unique beer festivals, from 1 to 7 p.m. June 1. Shuttles take festivalgoers between the two neighborhoods, where they can sample up to 50 beers at 50 local restaurants, bars and shops. 

Cherokee Street’s Saint Louis Hop Shop is in charge of the festival’s extensive beer list, which features numerous local and regional breweries like Earthbound Beer, Six Mile Bridge Beer and Urban Chestnut Brewing Co.

The goal of the festival isn’t just to get people drinking beer, but to also encourage them to experience what each of these neighborhoods has to offer.

“With this festival, you’re getting to taste 50 beers, but you’re not only introducing yourself to the beer, you’re introducing yourself to a business or merchant in these neighborhoods that you might not have been familiar with,” said Justin Trabert, event and fund development coordinator at Park Central Development.

Sampling spots at the festival take many forms, from clothing stores like May’s Place and Crimson Serpents Outpost to nightlife hotspots like Atomic Cowboy and Just John.

St. Louis native Chef Wood, now based in Atlanta, will host The Le Kitchen Experience (a live version of Rolling Out's video series "Le Kitchen with Chef Wood") from 1 to 5 p.m. at ShiSha Restaurant & Lounge in The Grove.

Look for announcements regarding the live music schedule on the IndiHop Facebook event page.

Tickets are available online and onsite during the event.
