For generations, beer in St. Louis was all about the big boys at A/B, but in 1989, little Schlafly beer began to change the scene.
The two locations are busy all the time with community events, private celebrations and just good times with live music and great beer.
The Tap Room, Schlafly’s first location, at 2100 Locust Street on the west end of downtown, is located in an historic building that dates back to the time of the St. Louis World’s Fair.
Free tours are offered at the Bottleworks location Friday, Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. The Bottleworks is located at 7260 Southwest Avenue.
Both locations have restaurants with menus perfectly paired to the seasonal ales. Try the Sticky Toffee Pudding for dessert. You will think you’ve died and gone to pudding heaven.
The Schlafly name is celebrated in Missouri for efforts the family made to overturn outdated state laws that restricted microbreweries.
Those familiar with the history of the Women’s Rights movement and the failed attempt for the Equal Rights Amendment may also remember the name Phyllis Schlafly, who worked tirelessly against the amendment.
