Road Trips for Beer photo by Gerard WalenThe St. Louis Brewery, more commonly known as Schlafly Beer, opened 20 years ago in the home town of brewing giant Anheuser-Busch. Its ensuing success has much to do with the philosophies of co-founders Tom Schlafly and Dan Kopman, who believe in adhering to principles that include being a conscientious and good neighbor, and trying to create the best-tasting beer possible.

Road Trips for Beer editor Gerard Walen was fortunate enough to go on a press trip of St. Louis earlier this year with a small group of travel writers, hosted by the Missouri Division of Tourism, which included in its itinerary a tour and dinner at the Schlafly Tap Room. Here’s a video of the experience, in which you’ll learn more about the craft brewery’s history, its barrel-aging program, its planned sour beer offerings and more.

    It’s good to see my friend Troy took care of you and my hometown was accommodating. I love Schlafly beers, they have always stepped in the right direction in regards to great beer and treating St. Louis well. It looks like you had a real nice time…

  • Gerard Walen says:

    He is indeed an awesome dude, and he and the Schlafly crew took very good care of us.
