oyster7.jpgIf you’re a fan of black beers and bivalves, Schlafly has the weekend you’ve been waiting for. This Friday (5:00 p.m.-Midnight) and Saturday (Noon-Midnight) is the 2008 Schlafly Stout and Oyster Festival.

Schlafly is flying in over 25,000 oysters not to mention shuckers from both coasts to demonstrate to you their shuckin’ skills. If the tantalizing thought of oysters isn’t enough, they’ll also be offering three of their stouts:  Nitro Irish Stout, Oatmeal Stout and the Coffee Stout.  (Unfortunately, the Imperial Stout isn’t part of this festival.)

These events are always a lot of fun, but they’re also extremely busy.  If you’re interested in going I’d make sure you allot plenty of time to waiting for a table.  You can always have a few beers at the bar and play some darts, after all that’s what we did for Cod and Cask.
