Fish is delicious any way you prepare it: broiled, grilled, baked, blackened or fried. The redoubtable cod is at its best when fried – and when paired with a Schlafly brand, St. Louis-brewed beer, an unstoppable dining duo is born. Derive maximum enjoyment from your fish and sudskis by consuming them this weekend at the Cod & Cask Festival. The party takes place at the Schlafly Tap Room (2100 Locust Street; 314-241-2337 or www.schlafly.com) tonight from 5 p.m. to midnight and Saturday, February 11 from 11 a.m. to midnight. Beer battered Icelandic cod and chips will be served in tandem with a tempting roster of cask-conditioned ales, among them English IPA, pale ale, oatmeal stout and more. You get the tasty idea.
Fri., Feb. 10, 5 p.m.-midnight; Sat., Feb. 11, 11-midnight, 2012
