Schlafly Beer’s Stout & Oyster Festival Returns

Schlafly Beer, the original, independent craft brewery in St. Louis, announces the highly anticipated return of its annual Stout & Oyster Festival on Friday, March 24, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday, March 25, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the historic Schlafly Tap Room (2100 Locust St, St. Louis, MO 63103). Schlafly’s Stout & Oyster Festival is the largest of its kind in the Midwest. Schlafly flies in over 80,000 oysters overnight from both coasts, hosts 20 seasoned oyster shuckers to shuck oysters live all weekend, and brews more than 10 stouts exclusively for the popular festival.

The event is free to attend, and guests pay for their preferred food and beer. To see complete details about Schlafly’s Stout & Oyster Festival, click here

“Stout & Oyster Festival brings the community together to celebrate great beer paired with fresh oysters. It’s a special time for us, and a tradition that we look forward to every year,” says CEO Fran Caradonna. “No one else in the Midwest has an oyster festival of this magnitude, and stouts and oysters are a natural pairing. We are so proud to have this event as a Schlafly staple.”  

The talented Schlafly brewing team will offer nine new stouts, available in the signature “tasting taco” (see below), as well as rotating specialty stouts throughout the festival such as: Tabasco Stout, Horseradish Stout, Barrel-Aged Imperial Beast Stout, English Breakfast Tea Stout, Irish Breakfast Cream Stout, Orange Vanilla Stout, Blueberry Vanilla Stout, Dirty Chai Stout, Gingersnap Stout, and more. Other Schlafly favorite beers will also be available, including White Lager, Just a Bit Hazy IPA, Pale Ale, Raspberry Hefeweizen, and more. Schlafly will also have a special edition Oyster Stout to commemorate the festival.

East Coast and West Coast shuckers will each offer an array of raw oyster varieties from their home coast at raw bars, both inside of the Schlafly Tap Room and outside in the “Shuckerdome”. Additionally, Fried Oysters, Oysters Rockefeller, and Oyster Chowder will be available. The Tap Room’s full menu will be available inside the restaurant.

In addition to the cast of “star shuckers,” Schlafly’s Stout & Oyster Festival offers a unique atmosphere with live music for the weekend.
