Unlike wine, which is reserved for special occasions such as coronations and the successful completion of grad school, beer is an every day beverage. And it just so happens that today is a day, which means it's time for beer. Schlafly obliges with its annual Cabin Fever party. Today from noon to 4 p.m., Schlafly Bottleworks (7260 Southwest Avenue, Maplewood; www.schlafly.com) takes it outside to the expansive parking lot, where staff will serve up samples of more than 40 different Schlafly brews. Some of the more interesting options include Sticky Toffee Porter, Mexican Chocolate Stout and a Baltic Porter. Tickets are $30 to $35 and include a commemorative tasting glass and unlimited beer samples.
