Cabin Fever

Who loves Schlafly?

I do! I do!

Schlafly Coaster

How does this sound:
----Kind of like “Shhlaaa flee.”

Dude, you cut me off! I was asking, how does THIS sound:

Schlafly Winter Beer Festival
Saturday, January 19th

Need I say more?

Not really, but I’m not ready to shush it just yet.

James and I went to last year’s Winter Beer Festival and it was a huge turning point in my life. It is the exact moment I switched from non-beer-drinker to beer-drinker. Packaging all beer into one category, gross, caused me to miss out on a lot of beer-drinking time in my life.

In my defense, I didn’t know any better. No one had ever asked me to try anything beyond Busch or Bud Light (yuck or yuck light). Um, also, the answer is yes, I needed someone to ask me to drink; I operate off peer-pressure.

…moving on…

Truth be damned, I'm a beer snob.

I love dark beer. Schlafly is my favorite.

Dear Brickskeller,

With “Over 1,000 Beers in a bottle,”
I want to know -

Where’s Schlafly!?!?!?


I digress. As usual.

Belgian Tripel

I will soon have in my hand, one commemorative tasting glass filled to the brim (two ounces, whatever! My commemorative glass cup runneth over!) with any sample I choose.

After I finish my first taste, I will enjoy up to 17 refills of fine brews such as Irish Extra Stout, Imperial Stout, Oatmeal Stout, Barleywine, Belgian Tripel, Smoked Porter and more!


Only 11 shopping days and 400 388 tickets remain!

Listening to: Erin Smith – For Pete’s Sake

Follow the above link.

Too bad I didn't find performance footage of her on youtube; Erin is a bad ass performer. And when I say bad ass, I mean she is most impressive. James and I saw her while in Paia, Maui, HI.

To self: Hmmm, future blog?


  1. I wish there were some type of winter beer festival around here. There may very well be one, I just haven't actually looked. Either way it sounds like a good idea.

  2. I have to try it to say you if i like or not...but i prefer blonde beer ;)
    hugs from Italy

  3. Mmm... BEER. How I miss thee...

    Truth be told I'm a bit more of a wino but Beer Good. Being completely alcohol deprived for at least the next year, I'd even drink a dark one.

  4. Mmmm, Hefeweizen. No lemon - there is NO FRUIT in beer. The more I drink the more likely I am to order it as "the beer with all the vowels." I like the light beers meself.

    I can't make the festival, my darling child is having her birthday party that day. Boo.

    I've never been to the Bottleworks, but ah, the Tap Room. Good times...

  5. You can't blame the Brickskellar for not having Shlafly...they need to do better marketing. I LOVED the Brickskellar when we were living in the DC area! Almost as much as Kramerbooks!
