Come out to see and old face at the shop, Dan, our Schlafly rep and former Crystal City Wine Shop employee, pouring four beers from Missouri’s largest locally owned independent brewery. They have been open since 1991, when they became the first brewpub since Prohibition to open in Missouri. Today, they have two locations in St. Louis and brew over fifty unique styles of beer every year, roughly half of which are bottles (and many of those can be found regularly on our shelves).

The Beers:

  • White Lager: “A lager with a cloudly, golden-colored hue and just the right hops. This rare style (Zwickel or Keller) dates back to the Middle Ages, where the beer was matured in deep vaults and emirged rich in vitamins. Think of this as a fresher, hoppier Hefeweizen.” 5.5% ABV, 20 IBU
  • Kölsch: “A classic golden ale that uses a centuries old yeast strain sourced from a famous Kölsch brewer in Köln, Germany. Fermented at 63 degrees, then cold conditioned, it has the delicate fruity aroma of an ale with the crisp, clean finish of a lager. It is brewed with lightly roasted malt and 100% German Noble Hops: Perle for bitterness and Hallertau Traditional for flavor and aroma.” 4.8% ABV, 25 IBU
  • IPA: Schlafly’s newest year-around offering! “This golden ale is dry hopped with eight hop varietals, but finishes with delicate and understated flavors.” 5.0% ABV, 35 IBU
  • Coffee Stout: “A classic combination of a traditional stout and premium French roast coffee from St. Louis roaster, Kaldi’s Coffee. Roasted barley and coffee dominate the aroma, with the sweetness from the stout balancing the acidity of the coffee. We use a unique cold toddy extraction process to brew a less acidic coffee for the beer.” 5.7% ABV, 30 IBU
