Shameless Personal Employee Promotion: Vote For Stewart's Bipartisandwich

So when I heard about the St. Louis Bread Company Sandwich Showdown, a competition to find the best new sandwich recipe, I had to enter.

The Deal With Our 20th Anniversary Bottle Caps

In early 2010 the good folks around the Schlafly office started brainstorming fun ideas to help celebrate our forthcoming 20th anniversary.  We knew we wanted to kick our annual December 26th anniversary parties up a notch for both ‘10 and ‘11 and this was also around the time when the concept for the Anniversary 750ml Beer Series came together. We also knew we wanted to have some unique anniversary bottle caps created to mark the occasion.

The Real Miracle On Ice: St. Louis Brewers Hockey

Did you know that Schlafly Beer has a hockey team? No? Well, neither did I until I came across them at Schlafly Bottleworks hoisting their beers and Division Champions trophy in the air in celebration of their most recent win.
