Schlafly Stout & Oyster Festival

Updated: 3/12/20: The 2020 Stout & Oyster Festival has been cancelled due to growing concerns of the COVID-19 outbreak. Please visit our social media channels to view our official statement.

Beer, shuckers and over 80,000 oysters converge on St. Louis from both coasts for the Schlafly Stout and Oyster festival. There’s no handy metaphor for the atmosphere created by 20 professional shuckers with live music as their backdrop and a selection fifteen-plus stouts on tap.

It’s the largest festival of its kind in the Midwest, and we’re proud to bring it to the Historic Tap Room. Check out the video below that captures the essence of our premier celebration of stouts.
