RFT's Q and Brew in the Lou Presale Starts June 25



We're pretty into barbecue and beer over here at Gut Check World Headquarters, and St. Louis is too. For the first time ever, we're throwing a festival celebrating two of our best exports at the Q and Brew in the Lou.

There are even more breweries to be announced.

The barbecue will be provided by Sugarfire Smokehouse, the Rib Shack and Bully's Smokehouse.

Our presale starts Thursday, June 25, to give our loyal readers a chance to buy tickets before the general public. General admission is $25, and VIP is $55. We'll update next week when the link is live. See you there!
