A staple on the St. Louis dining scene, Sidney Street Café always gives patrons plenty of reasons to return time and again. Next week, the Benton Park powerhouse has something special in store for food and beer lovers: a not-to-be-missed New Belgium Beer Dinner with brew master Peter Bouckaert as the guest of honor.
The event takes place on Tue., June 26, with a reception featuring the lightly-hopped Shift Pale Lager starting things off at 6:30pm and a five-course dinner following at 7. Tickets are $100 per person, and space is limited. For reservations, call 314.771.5777.
