Beer, Brats, and Baseball: St. Louis Germans

Presented by Reedy Press

Beer, Brats, and Baseball: St. Louis Germans

Wednesday, December 19 • 7pm • AT&T Foundation Multipurpose Room • Free

Hoping for freedom and a better life, Germans started coming to Missouri en masse in the 1830s. By 1860 native-born Germans amounted to more than a quarter of the city’s population. Author Jim Merkel examines the often serious, sometimes funny, and truly amazing story of Germans in the Gateway City, from the arrival of the first German priest right after the city’s founding to the present.

    I look forward to reading the book. I'd like to see a more polished oral presentation next time.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
