Schlafly Gardenworks is just under a seventh of an acre garden located next to our Bottleworks Restaurant and Brewery at 7260 Southwest Avenue in Maplewood, MO.
Thousands of pounds of produce are grown every year in the Gardenworks for use at both our restaurants, such as tomatoes, beets, Japanese white turnips, eggplant, summer squash, sunchokes, garlic, herbs, peppers, edible nopales catus and all sorts of greens including mustard, kale, shard and salad greens.
On your next visit to Bottleworks, check out Gardenworks on the east side of the building. We look forward to providing you with the healthiest and best tasting produce you will find anywhere.

History of the Gardenworks
“When we opened the Schlafly Tap Room in 1991 a friend of mine and Stephen’s from Kenyon College, Mike Gelsanliter said to me, “if you are brewing your own beer for the restaurant you should grow your own food.” Mike is a very passionate gardener. We never had the space to do this at The Schlafly Tap Room but when we purchased the old grocery store site in Maplewood in 1991 it was apparent that we would have sufficient parking without the lot that is now Gardenworks. The lot was in poor shape so it was either fix it or tear it up and “grow our own food”. I had no idea what this meant when we made the decision and while I would never want to put the concrete back down, I now understand why it is unique for a restaurant to grow its own food!” - Dan Kopman, Schlafly Co-Founder
- Worm’s Way is one of our most supportive partners in making the Schlafly Gardenworks a reality.
