Thursday, May 9: Build Your Own Beer Dinner For those who like to drink while they're cooking (or cook while they're drinking), Schnucks Cooks Cooking School (12332 Manchester Road, Des Peres; 314-965-3094) chefs Gay DeMichele, Lucy Schnuck and Tory Bahn will be leading guests through a how-to for cooking with beer. Deschutes Brewmaster Brian Faivre will talk about making beer, and Schucks chefs will recommend beer and food pairings. It's supposed to feel like you're watching a Food Network cooking show, but we sincerely hope none of the Schnucks chefs has a laugh like Rachel Ray, or guests will be downing beer instead of drinking it. Tickets are $30 per person and include a five course beer dinner and demo.

Friday, May 10: Beer and Cheese Though wine and cheese may be a more classic pairing, beer and cheese taste pretty awesome together too. Deschutes has partnered with The Wine and Cheese Place (7435 Forsyth Boulevard, Clayton; 314-727-8788) to provide an educational tasting of beer and cheese with the Deschutes brewmaster and folks from the Marcoot Jersey Creamery. The brewmaster will be talking about how the beer is made, and the cheesemasters (yes, that is their new title) will be discussing the nuances of cheese-making. The beer and cheese pairings will be Black Butte Porter with Marcoot Aged Gouda, Chainbreaker White IPA with Marcoot Fresh Mozzarella, Inversion IPA with Marcoot Cheddar, The Stoic with Marcoot Heritage and Deschutes River Ale with Marcoot Tomme. The event will take place from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., and admission is free.

Beer-lesque: Tastings and Tassels Cause nothing goes with beer quite like boobs, amirite? Naughty Pierre, a burlesque host out of Denver, Colorado, will be hosting a show that will feature a Deschutes Brewery beer in each burlesque and variety stage act. The show will be at Cicero's (6691 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 314-862-0009) from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m., and admission is $10 for a seat or $5 to stand. The event is 21 and over, and Cicero's will, of course, be serving Deschutes Beer. We just hope those burlesque chicks aren't pouring it all over themselves, cause that would be a real waste of a craft brew.
