Schlafly Beer. Brewed in St. Louis.

Schlafly's Commitment to Sustainability





Schlafly Beer’s sustainability initiatives include the following:

  • Installing 25 kW photovoltaic solar array panels on the Bottleworks roof to help power the brewery
  • Purchasing yearly energy offsets for 100% of the brewery’s operation, including Bottleworks, the Tap Room, and offsite warehousing; for 2016, Schlafly purchased 2,036 RECS (renewable energy certificates), the equivalent of more than 2 million kilowatt-hours and 28% of the city’s overall green energy contribution
  • Donating spent grain from brewing to local farmers to utilize for livestock
  • Growing four tons of produce for its restaurants at the half of an acre garden, or Schlafly Gardenworks, at our Bottleworks location
  • In addition to the garden, purchasing a large amount of locally produced food for its restaurants to be considered a member of the Green Dining Alliance
  • Hosting the weekly Schlafly Farmers Markets on Wednesday evenings from 4- 7 p.m.
  • Diverting solid waste from the landfill, as well as receiving grants for a pilot composting project for post-consumer food waste at both the Tap Room and Bottleworks
  • Using ultra-high efficiency heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning units
  • Making an effort to do business with local companies from bottles to packaging, which reduces the brewery’s carbon footprint
  • Supporting Ameren’s Pure Power renewable energy program, as well as hosting and supporting local sustainability organizations Slow Food St. Louis, St. Louis Originals, and St. Louis Earth Day.
  • Schlafly Beer is the only beer sponsor of St. Louis Earth Day with the largest commitment to date this year, including donating $1 for every pint of Schlafly Beer purchased in the month of April to St. Louis Earth Day, among other initiatives.
