This may be it.  This may be your last chance to try the “original” American IPA on cask from Schlafly.

This Thursday, April 1st, starting at 6:30PM, a representative from the St. Louis Brewery will be tapping a cask of the American IPA and will be serving it at the Hair of the Dog Pub on Washington.

This beer will be available until they run out or the pub closes.  My guess is that the won’t have to worry about it not running out.

SixRow_logoYes the date for the first cask beer available from Six Row Brewing Company is on April 1st, but I can assure you that this is no joke. Starting at 6PM, they will be offering up a dry-hopped version of their ESB. Seems like the perfect style for cask treatment.

I’ve also been informed that Six Row will begin having an event each Wednesday called, “Brewmaster’s Special”. Starting this week and following every week thereafter, the brewers of Six Row will be featuring a one of their beers at a special price of $3.50 per pint.  This week’s special choice is the ESB.

04oystersingleoysterI know for some of you, this is the festival you’ve been most eagerly awaiting for, the Schlafly 2010 Stout and Oyster Festival. Schlafly is flying in “over 25,000 fresh oysters from both coasts and offer a tantalizing array of dishes, like gumbo, Rockefeller, fried, Po-Boy, and grilled.” They will also be offering up a raw bar as well to give you the ability to try several different vararites.

Schlafly will also be flying in some some celebrity shuckers to open up your oyster fyster than you can blink. With names like “Bimbo, Clam, Rawle, Silky Smooth and Thurman” I think you’re in for some really colorful characters.

Oh, and then there’s the beer. Schlafly will be offering their Nitro Irish, Oatmeal and Kaldi’s Coffee Stout. You’ll be able to combine some of your favorite Schlafly stouts with the briny delight of fresh Oysters.
