Let's Go, Oktoberfest!
Here we are well into the Oktoberfest season and we've only tried... one? One. One of this years offerings. That's not a very good record Beer League, but don't you worry your pretty little pint glass, friend. We're having another Oktoberfest this week, and we'll have a smattering more over the coming weeks.
But before we dive headfirst deep into the uncharted Oktoberfest waters, we're going to revisit Excel Brewing's Oktoberfest this week. Because starting small and local is like how we do it, man.
Let's hear more about this Oktoberfest!

So Happy It's Thursday!
We feel so lucky to have this weather in St. Louis we're going to celebrate by hanging out on the patio, throwing some discs, drinking some beers, playing some pinballs, gabbering, jabbering, yammering, hemming, hawing, and enjoying the company of fine people and great beers. Ok, great people and great beers. You guys are ok!

The St. Louis Art Machine is a collaboration of St. Louis artists selling art for $5 out of cigarette machines.
What in the hell is a St. Louis Art Machine, you ask?
The St. Louis Art Machine is a repurposed cigarette machine owned by Sarah Harris, made mechanically sound by Tyler Harris, and filled with the tiny, cigarette-pack-sized-arts of local artists and makers.
Because of our desire to make small art affordable and approachable, all works are set at a flat-rate of $5 ea.
Currently the St. Louis Art Machine is installed at The Waiting Room Bar & Venue, where it will reside for about four months until it moves to its next home with a new set of artists.
