Summer Solstice Beer Festival

Brought to you by the founders of The St. Louis Centennial Beer Festival


Since 2008 the Centennial Beer Festival grew from featuring a three-hour tasting, a few dozen beers and a couple of hundred guests to a week-long festival highlighting the Brewmaster’s dinner, home brewers contest, yoga buzz, the Brewer’s Guild, hundreds of beers, dozens of local brewers and thousands of annual beer fans.


The Centennial took on a life of its own and continued to adapt to increased competition, 8 inches of snow and even covid. The name, taken from the building – The Centennial Malt House – spawned a festival that became a special experience.


We find ourselves entering into a new chapter and as we fondly remember the Centennial, we look to the future and start the Summer Solstice Beer Festival. Because of the fire that ravaged the Centennial Malt House, we are starting a new festival down the street at the Rhone which features both indoor and outdoor facilities and changed the date to take advantage of the longest day of the year. From music to venue to beer and food this festival will have a decidedly summer feel.


What has not changed is our desire to continue to celebrate the best beer in St. Louis. This year we are partnering with Public House for the Brewmaster’s dinner, Lift for Life as our non-profit partners and will again purchase the beer we pour (which is only fair, but often not done.)


The Summer Solstice weekend has long been celebrated around the world for hundred of years from pagan rituals to public holidays. We are featuring the best seasonal beers, a larger stage of live music and summer food and merch.


Raid your closet for your best beach ware, break out the flip flops and hats and apply your sunscreen for year one of a new tradition. Where this festival goes in unknown, but we hope to have you onboard for the ride.
