BREAKING NEWS: World Cup and Beer!

If you don't already know the USA vs. Ghana score (or if you do, but can keep your mouth shut even when you're full of beer, which rules me out), the folks at the fledgling Black Star Brewpub Co-op are having a tape-delayed soccer-watching party over in the Kirkwood/Maplewood neighborhood. (Warning: They might actually be rooting for Ghana, since their name was inspired by a trip to Ghana; the Ghanian team is nicknamed "the Black Stars" because of Ghana's flag.) Here's the e-mail they sent out:

I want to remind everyone that tonight we will be showing a replay of this morning's World Cup match between the Ghana Black Stars and the USA tonight at 8PM. Yes, the match has been decided already, so DON'T PEEK AT THE SCORE!

There is a flier available on our website:

and a map of the location can be found here:

I'd also like to give a special thanks to Ty Phelps, the brewer at North by Northwest. He has generously donated 5 gallons of his pale ale for this event, so if the soccer match hasn't convinced you to join us tonight, perhaps his delicious beer will!

Finally, since this is the first real event we've had in a while, there will be membership forms available and t-shirts for sale.

That's it. I'll see you all tonight!
