Categories: Food Porn

On Friday and Saturday, March 8-9, the Schlafly Tap Room (2100 Locust Street; 314-241-2337) celebrated its annual Stout and Oyster Festival, flying in 30,000 live oysters from both coasts, along with a team of all-star shuckers.

The stout they already had on hand -- pints and pints (and pints) of it, in three varieties.

A small fraction of the tens of thousands of oysters flown in for the occasion await the shuckers (also flown in for the occasion).
