Designated Drivers, Start Your Engines! 

Attention beer connoisseurs: Gather your friends, and limber your fingers for the most crucial game of "rock, paper, scissors" you'll play all year — it's time to choose the designated driver for this season's Microfest! For the first time in its storied history, Microfest goes on for two days, with proceeds from Friday and Saturday (June 8 and 9) benefiting the Lift for Life Gym. Tasting begins Friday evening at 5 p.m. with a focus on international brews like Duvel and Delirium Tremens, and admission at the gate is just $25.

Then, wake up before noon Saturday and wash your hangover away as the homegrown beers take the spotlight. The $25 admission fee buys a glass for unlimited tasting while you take in cooking demonstrations (bring cash if you want to eat; food is priced in the $3-to-$6 range) and sway to the music of performers like Erin Bode and Javier Mendoza. And designated drivers, you're winners, too: A special admission fee ($12 either day) entitles you to a Fitz's root beer mug to sample more than twenty specialty craft sodas. Microfest takes place at the upper Muny parking lot in Forest Park. For more information call 314-436-2337 or visit www.liftforlife.org/microfest.htm.
