Meet the Farmer: Marcoot Jersey Creamery

Every year on the 4th of July we celebrate the anniversary of our country declaring independence from Great Britain by lighting off fireworks, getting together with family and friends and treating ourselves to backyard barbecues and beers, and no beer in the history of the United States of America is more patriotic than our Schlafly American IPA.

Where To Find Schlafly Beer At The Stadium

For years, Schlafly Beer could only be found in one or two locations at the home of the St. Louis Baseball Cardinals. If you go back and take a look at some of our old Schlafly “Baseball” t-shirt designs, it’s clear that we had no problem playing up the fact that Schlafly was pretty hard to find at Busch Stadium and in some ways, the search was kind of part of the fun of being a Schlafly Fan at a stadium that, in more than just name, was truly a monument to our much larger brothers in brewing down the street.
