Schlafly The Eleventh Labor is the second addition to the brewery’s Ibex Series. The ibex, a wild goat, can be traced back to the village seal of Steinhof, where brewery founder Tom Schlafly’s great grandfather was born.
The second addition, Schlafly The Eleventh Labor, is soured with the brewery’s house sour yeast culture, and bolstered with 62 pounds of apricots.
“The Ibex Series is a celebration of our foundation at Schlafly Beer to utilize high quality ingredients and consistently challenge our brewing team to deliver a superior product,” Schlafly Brewer Augie Altenbaumer. “With the Eleventh Labor, every element from the label to the packaging of the kegs exemplifies the craftsmanship of our Ibex beers.”
Schlafly The Eleventh Labor is available in 750 milliliter bottles, hand waxed, for an estimated retail price of $20 dollars.

On April Fool’s Day, Schlafly released a “joke” video about the making of Schlafly Titanium (an obvious play on Bud Light Platinum.) A beer so rare, there’s only one. Now you have a shot at this ultra rare gem – or at least the empty bottle from the video. The auction (already up to $350 dollars) is for the empty collectors item, a $50 dollar gift certificate for the Tap Room or Bottleworks, a VIP tour (up to 10 peeps) and 2 tickets to the Repeal Of Prohibition Festival. The proceeds from the auction will be donated to The Gateway Chapter of The Leukemia And Lymphoma Society. [Ebay]
