I love how that rhymes!
A few nights ago, I went to Six Row Brewing Company with some friends:
Charles and I go way back. We knew each other in junior high and highschool – we were both involved in theater, we had a class or two together (one involved performing an embarrasingly sweet Cruella DeVille dance together, but that’s another story for another time!), and we even rode the school bus together!
Melissa is a new friend – I first met her at Show Me the Blog, where she impressed the crowd with her amazing presentation on social media and marketing…and wowed us with her fantastic boots! She also has a really cool blog — A Small Town Girl’s Guide. Check it out!
Anyway, Charles put together a mini tweetup. Friends and food? Count me in!
We met up at Six Row Brewing Company in St. Louis.
It was a very laid back little place with amazing atmosphere. I immediately felt at home.
I’m pretty sure this had something to do with it:
Yummy Honey Weizen beer. Hello – I’m at a brewing company! Of course I’m going to see what bevvies they have to offer. It was delicious, by the way. Sweet and smooth, just like any good honey wheat beer should be.
We were feeling snackish, so we ordered some appetizers to share:
Buffalo Chicken Nachos,
Roasted Chicken Wings,
and Companion Bread Pretzels with beer cheese.
Everything was delicious! The buffalo chicken nachos started with deliciously fresh chips, topped with chicken, buffalo beer cheese, pico de gallo, and sour cream. Yumtastic! These were my favorite.
The roasted chicken wings were tossed in honey-hot sauce and roasted until caramelized. The chicken itself was flavorful and juicy.
The pretzels were made my companion bakery (a St. Louis staple!) and were warm, soft, and chewy. The beer cheese was fantastic paired with these.
After sharing all of that food, we were stuffed! But of course we had to have dessert. And since we couldn’t just choose one, we decided to go with both! First up? Warm gooey butter cake.
It was served with cinnamon ice cream, and it was delish!! Wowza! So soft, warm, and…gooey! Gooey butter cake is sort of a St. Louis thing, but it really needs to catch on in the rest of the country. It’s that good. The cinnamon ice cream was yummy, too!
Next up? A cream cheese brownie with vanilla bean ice cream:
So good! We were all speechless after trying this one. I’m pretty sure Charles said “Oh…wow!” at least a dozen times.
All in all, it was a wonderful night, filled with laughs, good conversation, and great food. I can’t wait to hang out again! Thanks for a great night, Charles and Melissa!
