Bottleworks Gets A Facelift - Bridging The Gap During Construction

As many of you may know, Schlafly Bottleworks has been closed for the week for renovations and improvements. Work to the facility was to include a brand new floor in our kitchen, a completely new paint job throughout the restaurant side of the building, a re-build of our walk-in cooler that most of our beer flows from to our bars, and a complete overhaul of our Crown Room bar, which also doubles as our brewery tour tasting room. As is common with construction projects, sometimes it’s only after you start making a mess that the surprises pop up and the best laid plans have delays. We’ve had a few such surprises this week and while the re-opening of Bottleworks will be delayed, it won’t be by much and we have what we think is a fun plan in place to bridge the gap.

Time For Some World Series Wagers Between Craft Brewery Friends

Our beloved baseball team has once again made it to the Fall Classic and the Commissioner’s Trophy won’t be the only thing on the line when the St. Louis Cardinals and the Boston Red Sox face-off once more in the 2013 World Series. It turns out that our co-founder, Dan Kopman is quite the betting man and Schlafly Beer has not one, but two exciting bets riding on the Series with our friends at Harpoon Brewery and the Boston Beer Compay, makers of Samuel Adams.

Is Your Child Our Inaugural Schlafly Baby™?

The Schlafly Tap Room first opened it doors on December 26th, 1991 and by our math that means that somewhere out there, the very first child to have been conceived with some form of involvement from our brewery could be turning 21 as early as this Fall…and we want to find them, recognize them, and make sure their first legal sip of beer is Schlafly Beer.

Leading Schlafly Beer - The Next 20 Years

We started Schlafly Beer with a mission:  To brew better beer and help rebuild our St. Louis Community.  We define better as more flavorful; we exemplify rebuilding community by the two vacant, abandoned buildings that we brought back to life, and in doing so, served as anchors for the rebuilding of the neighborhoods around the Breweries.  Today we brew an ever expanding number of internationally recognized traditional European and new innovative beers styles.  We continue to invest in the two Breweries as we seek to improve the experience for our customers.  We are working on a potential third Brewery in St. Louis, a much larger project that will once again make the statement that Schlafly Beer believes in the future of St. Louis.

21st And Locust Brewing Company®

So we arrive at April 1st with the beer world witnessing great change. In the past few years the multi-national light lager brewers, led by Anheuser Busch InBev, SAB Miller and Molson Coors have recognized the need to go beyond light lager and have created craft beers of their own like Shock Top and Blue Moon.  They have avoided linking these beers to their heritage brands by creating breweries that don’t exist.  Their “Argo like” creations have been very successful.  To that we say, “Bravo, gentlemen.”

This weekend we will trial something all together different: no tours. Just tastings. In other words you come in, you sample beers, you walk through the brewery on your way out.
