No.20 - Volume 2: Hop Toddy Press Release
Schlafly Set To Release New Limited Edition 20th Anniversary Beer
St. Louis, MO • April 12th, 2011 – This month, Schlafly Beer unveils their newest release in the limited edition 20th Anniversary Series. Bottled in a 750 ml champagne bottle, No.20, Volume 2: Hop Toddy represents the second of four unique one-off releases planned this year in celebration of Schlafly’s 20th birthday.
Schlafly No.20, Volume 2: Hop Toddy was created by the second generation of original Schlafly brewers – James “Otto” Ottolini, now head of brewing operations at Schlafly Bottleworks, Sara Hale and Jack Petrovic, who are now involved in St. Louis’ local food movement, Kevin Nash and Paul Jensen, who are still tending bar at the Schlafly Tap Room after 20 years as well as Claire Huelsmann.
Hop Toddy showcases our desire to experiment beyond the boundaries of traditional beer styles. This wheat ale is brewed with local wheat and honey, with a hint of concentrated lemon juice. A dry-hopping with Citra hops and aging in bourbon barrels makes it the beer equivalent of a hot toddy.
Three Release Parties are planned for Schlafly No.20, Volume 2: Hop Toddy in the month of April. O’Leary’s Restaurant in Sunset Hills, MO will tap a keg on Wednesday, April 13th at 6pm. Mangia Italiano in St. Louis City will tap a keg on Wednesday, April 20th at 5:30pm. Hangar 9 in Carbondale, IL will tap a keg on Friday, April 29th at 5pm.
The new Schlafly Anniversary beer will be available for sale in bottles and on draft at the Schlafly Tap Room in downtown St. Louis as well as at Schlafly Bottleworks in Maplewood, MO beginning Thursday, April 21st. Look for Schlafly No.20, Volume 2: Hop Toddy to be available for purchase in 750 ml bottles at select accounts across the St. Louis area beginning in late April. The beer will also be featured along with Schlafly Kölsch at SAVOR in Washington D.C. in June.
