At Saint Arnold Brewery, 2000 Lyons, the first Sunday in February means one thing: Super Beef Sunday.

On Sunday, February 7 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m, cold beer will be flowing as the legendary Louie Mueller BBQ, Pinkerton's Barbecue and Feges BBQ prepare and serve their finest smoked meats. Like previous years, Louie Mueller BBQ will have pre-wrapped whole brisket and beef ribs available for pre-purchase (these must be purchased at the time of your ticket purchase). Whole brisket will be $100 and a rack of three beef ribs will be $75. Do your best to arrive by 12:30 p.m. so you can try all of the different items the pit masters will have to offer. Tickets are $50 per person and include tastings from all three pit masters, beer and a commemorative pint glass.
