Schlafly Brewing will be bringing their Hefeweizen to cans this May. Hefe is a year round offering by Schlafly. According to the brewery, 4,000 cases will be initially produced.
Our Hefeweizen is a light, unfiltered wheat beer, often served with a wedge of lemon. Made with thirty percent American winter wheat, Hefeweizen is balanced with sweet golden malted barley and Tettnang hops from Oregon that evoke a hint of spice. The American ale yeast is subtle, but the grains take center stage and, when left in the unfiltered beer, gives it that classic cloudiness and additional body.
4.1% ABV, 16 IBUs
Schlafly Brewer’s Choice beer styles are selected by our brewers. This short run seasonal beer is available for a limited time. Schlafly Yakima Wheat Ale is a refreshing, hoppy wheat beer showcasing a variety of hops from Yakima Valley in Washington State.
Style: Wheat Ale
Availability: 12oz bottles, Draft
John Lemkemeier and Wesley Jones, & Spencer Finney of St. Louis private-equity firm Sage Capital will join the board at St. Louis Brewery (makers of Schlafly) once the deal is approved. The deal includes a host of other investors, including David Schlafly- a cousin. The brewery mentioned via Twitter, that all the brewing staff remains the same, as will the beer of course.
The deal, which is expected to close in several months pending government approval, will transfer 60 percent ownership to the investment group.
Brewery co-founder Tom Schlafly will retain a 20 percent stake and serve as chairman of the board; other co-founder Dan Kopman will retain at least 10 percent of the company and will continue to oversee day-to-day operations as the brewery’s CEO. Eligible Schlafly employees will be able to purchase parts of the remaining 10 percent of the company.
“The agreement … meets the criteria we set back in June of 2010, when we first discussed a succession plan for ownership of the brewery,” Tom Schlafly said in a statement. “Senior and long-term employees will be able to purchase stock in the company, and I’m transferring a majority interest to local investors committed to keeping the business in St. Louis.”
St. Louis Brewery just turned 20. Annual production is around 41,000 barrels a year. (1,271,000 gallons of beer a year.) [STLToday, @EvanBenn ]
On December 10th, Nashville’s 12 South neighborhood saw the first Winter Warmer Festival. We’re talking stouts, winter warmers, barrel aged beers. It was chilly, making the whole theme even more perfect. The fest saw the likes of Green Flash Brewing, Chattanooga Brewing, Craggie Brewing, Good People, Hat Trick (coming soon), Jackalope, Yazoo, Left Hand, Red Brick, Goose Island, Calf Killer, Oskar Blues, Jackie O’s, Schlafly & more. This event was small, but kick ass. You missed out. Nashville has a growing beer scene worth checking out.
This IPA is kettle-hopped and dry-hopped with a unique hop from Tasmania, called Galaxy. This strong, aromatic hop is distinctly different from traditional Pacific Northwest varieties. Enjoy the last brew in our 20th anniversary series!
