Schlafly Stout & Oyster Festival

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.

Well-behaved pups are allowed, just not in the tents, please.

The safety of our customers, shuckers and employees is top priority. Please check back for information regarding any safety requirements for the 2022 event.
