Weekly Spotlight — 13 August 2012

Our rollout of fall seasonals continues this week with two new styles from Schlafly Beer Company. While many brewers produce either a Pumpkin Ale OR an Oktoberfest-style Lager, Schlafly makes both! In fact, these guys crank out over FIFTY styles of top-quality craft beer from their St. Louis facility each and every year. From their crisp and refreshing Kolsch and assertively dry-hopped APAs and IPAs, to their bottle-conditioned Belgian ales and boozy Bourbon barrel-aged brews, Schlafly has something for almost everyone. Each season we’re trying our best to give you a taste of what these guys are all about. And based on how fast their beers are flying out of here, we’re pretty sure you’re all enjoying what you’re tasting! So keep reading to see what’s new and then get out there to stock up on some more of these fine St. Louis suds!


Pumpkin Ale
Bright copper orange in color and loaded fresh pumpkin and spice on both the nose and palate. Full-bodied and malty, this fall seasonal clocks in at 8% abv. Try this most delicious pumpkin brew on its own or with an assortment of sweet desserts like carrot cake, pumpkin pie, pecan pie or Tarte Tatin.
