Cod & Cask Festival 2013

We are getting ready for the Cod & Cask Festival this weekend at the Schlafly Tap Room. On a Tuesday before a festival, everyone is gearing up.
Today, chef Andy White took me on a tour of the kitchen where they are prepping over 500 pounds of Icelandic cod and have already filled 5 massive tubs filled with fresh cut Tap Room Fries. It was an impressive sight to behold. Andy said, “this is just for Friday. We will go through 1500 pounds of cod this weekend.”
