Photos: Schlafly's 18th Birthday Party at The Tap Room, 12.26

Posted By on Mon, Dec 28, 2009 at 10:00 AM

On Saturday afternoon, the Saint Louis Brewery, maker of Schlafly beer, celebrated its 18th birthday party by selling beer at 1991 prices -- about $3 a pint. Bargain-swill it ain't, but Schlafly drinkers still flocked to the Tap Room downtown for the occasion.

Photographer Nick Schnelle was also there and asked drinkers what they remembered about their own 18th birthdays. The lowered beer prices help loosen a few lips.
