The good people at Schlafly (pronounced Sh-laugh-ly) put out some really good craft beers here in St. Louis. They also put out some really good food to go with that beer. But, every once in a while they do some events that are rather special. This past weekend was the Stout and Oyster festival. They flew in some crazy amount of oysters from both coasts and purveyors from those regions to shuck them. It isn’t every day you get really good oysters in the midwest. The fact that they flew in these shuckers meant we had the same local purveyors that could be found in these oysters natural habitats – both from the west and east coasts. There were definitely plenty of oysters (and stouts) to go around.
