Nov. 22: This weekend, try out a new beer with the newest craft brewery in town. Earthbound Brewing will make its debut on St. Louis’ popular Cherokee Street and is operated by Rebecca Schranz, Stuart Keating and Jeff Siddons. The small brewery will offer beers made in-house such as the full-bodied Rye Juniper pale ale that is finished with rosemary and juniper rather than hops giving a dry, woody finish. In a photo tour posted to their website, there’s plenty of character built into the space that was once a nail salon—full of warm, earth tones and wood that was hand-cut by a man in Bonne Terre, Missouri. 2710 Cherokee St., Cherokee, 314.504.3532

Nov. 22: Celebrate seven years of STL Hops this weekend at Urban Chestnut in The Grove from 6-10pm. More than three dozen beers will be on tap such as O’Fallon Brewery, Boulevard Brewing Co. and more. Food trucks will also be on the scene. Tickets are $30 with VIP for $40. All proceeds from the ticket sales will benefit Stray Rescue of St. Louis and St. Louis Bulldog Rescue. 4465 Manchester Ave., The Grove, 314.222.0143 

Nov. 22: Whiskey in the Winter festival will run this weekend, featuring more than 250 whiskeys from around the world at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. Guests experience tastings and cocktails, take part in seminar sessions from experts in the industry as well as eat from whiskey-inspired food stations.

St. Louis businesses Modern Brewery, Kuva Coffee and Rick Jordan Chocolatier have joined forces to create Arkham’s Finest, an 8 percent ABV stout. As reported by Feast, Maplewood neighbors Modern Brewery and Kuva Coffee came together using Kuva’s cold-brewed Cafe Peru Chilchos and added high-quality chocolate from Chesterfield-based Rick Jordan to form the stout. A non-barrel-aged version will release within the next week and two more versions are expected early next year. Modern Brewery, 5321 Manchester Ave., Maplewood; Kuva Coffee Company, 5231 C Manchester Ave., Maplewood, 314.918.7030; Rick Jordan Chocolatier, 4882 Clayton Road, Chesterfield, 636.230.9300

Last week 4 Hands Brewing Co. began their canning operation, which will bring the brewery’s entire year-round portfolio of craft beers from 12-ounce, four-pack bottles to a six-pack of cans. The transition to cans will allow higher production at the Downtown brewery as well as reduce production costs, which will  reward consumers. The price point for a six-pack of cans will run between $8.99-$9.99, while the four-pack of bottles cost around $8.99. Fans can expect to see a release of seasonal offerings by the bottle and in the 22-ounce bomber format, with the 4 Hands’ Alter Ego Black IPA and Chocolate Milk Stout to be made available in cans by the end of the year. 1220 S. 8th Street, Downtown, 314.436.1559
