Beer Al Fresco

Finally, winter has arrived. You know what that means -- it's time to break out the big beers, the chewy ones that count as two full meals each and yet leave you looking for some sort of dessert beer. These sort of beers taste even better if you drink 'em outside; something about the wind slashing your face makes the whole experience much more primal. If cold weather and fresh beer sound like your kinda Saturday, brother, have we got a deal for you. Schlafly's Cabin Fever allows you to get out of the house and get into some beers, from noon to 4 p.m. at Schlafly Bottleworks (7260 Southwest Boulevard, Maplewood; 314-241-2337 or www.schlafly.com). Styles on the list right now include a bock, a dopplebock, oatmeal stout, Irish extra stout and strawberry cider. What? Life's not all burly beers, you know. Sometimes you want a smooth sipper. Tickets are $25 to $30, and that includes the commemorative two-ounce tasting glass, which you'll need for your eighteen beer samples. Some quick back-of-coaster math says that works out to about three normal beers, but let's not worry about facts and figures at a time like this -- there's beer to drink.
