Beer League ketchup week.

Beer League: So there’s Papa Tomato, Momma Tomato…


Pulp Fiction is over 20 years old. Beer League isn't nearly that old but we cuss as much as most Tarintino flicks and we like jokes and milkshakes and doing the twist. We'll take a hard pass on Zed's of any sort or living in boxes. We're in for choppers though.

In the movie Pulp Fiction one of my all time favorite jokes gets told by Mia Wallace after a real rollercoaster of a night.

So there's Papa Tomato, Momma Tomato and Baby Tomato walking along the street.

Baby Tomato starts lagging behind, and Papa Tomato starts getting really angry.
So, he turns around and squishes Baby Tomato and says, 'Ketchup.'


This weeks beer isn't a beer but rather a beers. After hanging out with everyone from Charleville Brewing and The OG last week we're gonna keep it low key and low stress. Choose from our remaining beers from the last five weeks that we have left; Charleville, Piney River, Santa Fe Brewing, Schlafly, or Founders.

There might be another mystery option in there too. Each catchup beer you have tonight will earn you a stamp, so you won't miss out on those weeks you did yardwork all evening and noped right outta League.

We get it, bagging leaves feels pointless. End result looks good though, especially with a beer.

Try a new beer every Thursday at Beer League!

Adobe Igloo

Adobe Igloo is our New Mexican answer to the classic Winter Warmer: dark red, full bodied, and malty.  Traditionally balanced with extra hops or a Wintery spice blend, we instead drew on our culinary heritage and focused on cacao nibs and red chile flakes.

Offering chile flavor without heat and dusty raw cocoa rather than sweet chocolate, Adobe Igloo’s intriguing complexity will keep you coming back, sip after warming sip.

Dark Penance From Founders Brewing

Let’s Ketchup Together, Tonight

We'll probably be indoors due to inclement weather, but if everything dies down and it's not too windy we'll have a fire out back. We're also putting together a steel tip dart league. It's in its early stages right now, but should be going soon and we'll keep you posted so you can brush up on your skills.

We'll also be playing a ton of X-Files pinball with our ketchup.

Beer League Chili Cookoff

Thursday, April 7th.

One night every year The Waiting Room Bar & Venue is transformed into a vessel containing the most delicious chilis in the greater St. Louis area.

Then we try them all, vote on our favorite, and new heavy-hitting winner is crowned.

This year the annual chili cookoff hosted by Beer League at The Waiting Room is taking place on Thursday, April 7th. We're still hammering out the final details for this year - but the important thing for you is to start getting your recipe tuned-up for 2016 and be ready for a chili-throwdown on April 7th!
