Join the Young Friends of the Garden for the 16th annual Fest-of-Ale presented by Midwest BankCentre.

Fest-of-Ale celebrates local breweries as they bring their best offerings to the Garden for tastings. Attendees receive a commemorative tasting glass and can sample beers from over 20 of the region's best breweries while enjoying live music and the Garden's fall scenery.

Event proceeds benefit the Garden's Outdoor Youth Corps education and workforce development program, which connects St. Louis region youth ages 16 to 24 with environmental stewardship projects, community engagement opportunities, and potential environmental careers.

This year's Biggest Beer Basket West of the Mississippi is sponsored by FORVIS and Jessie and Ron Mueller. 

Ticket price includes a commemorative glass, beer sampling, and live music by Wax Museum. Food available for purchase from Catering St. Louis and STL Snowcone.

$40 Garden members
$50 Nonmembers
$15 Designated drivers

All attendees must be at least 21 years of age. Fest-of-Ale is a rain or shine event. In the case of inclement weather, tastings areas may be moved indoors.
