Beer-Drinkers Flock to iTAP Soulard for Firkin Fest

Cask-aged beers were tapped on Saturday afternoon at the International Tap House in Soulard, as part of the third-annual Firkin Fest. (Firkin being the term used to describe a cask of beer). In total, thirteen casks were tapped -- five casks were tapped at noon, and four each at 1 and 2 p.m. If you missed the festivities, photographer Theo Welling brought back these photos of delicious beer-porn and a few other images from the scene at iTAP on Saturday.
