It a shame that Vyvvy and Strykzone have been so bummed by the sellout to AbInBev that they no longer have the incentive to continue forward with the StL RBSG. But I understand. Ir really takes the wind out of your sails. I was one of the people that was really interested in getting another RBSG together and was excited those two were willing to invest the time and effort to put this together.
jcwattsrugger has offered to help to continue to move this forward. It would be nice to have someone on the ground in St. Louis to help but this is still a great location with lots of new breweries to visit. So I will volunteer to help. A lot can be done remotely and by working together
However all is not lost yet.
So, in my opinion, we need to pick a good hotel that will give us good rates, allow bottle sharing someplace on the site, contact breweries to let them know we are coming, and find a location for a grand tasting we have the core of successful gathering. We can use uber/lyft or public transit and a bus for a least one day is still a possibility .
Those who want to make it still happen and are willing to help should step up. We will form a committee, identify all the task, divide up the work, and make this happen,
Let not let this die.
