Schlafly Bottleworks

7260 Southwest Ave Maplewood, MO 63143 | Maplewood | 314-241-2337

Location Description:

While Budweiser is synonymous with St. Louis to the outside world, savvy outsiders know to namedrop Schlafly in St. Louis instead of Busch. Indeed, if it weren't for the humidity and Schlafly seasonal releases, how would we mark the changing of seasons? It's not summer unless we're drinking Raspberry Hefeweizen or the crisp Summer Lager, and the winter doldrums become rich and heady under the influence of the Oatmeal Stout.The always-hopping Schlafly Bottleworks is the brand's flagship, and the massive Maplewood location is a venue, restaurant, bar, bottling plant, retailer and mini-museum paying homage to St. Louis' storied brewing history. The well-staffed restaurant serves up thoughtful New American cuisine, and yes, all the beer you care to drink. Freshness is king at Bottleworks, from the beer brewed on the premises to the homegrown, organic menu. When the weather is warm, the courtyard features live jazz and folk music.
