The ownership meetings at the Saint Louis Brewery, maker of Schlafly beer, are about to get a lot more crowded.

Schlafly, which just last month celebrated its twentieth anniversary, announced today that a group of thirteen local investors are purchasing a 60 percent stake in the company. Cofounder and current president Tom Schlafly will retain a 20 percent stake and become the brewery's chairman, while co-founder and current COO Dan Kopman will have at least a 10 percent stake and be CEO.

Eligible employees will be able to purchase part of the remaining 10 percent stake.

Wesley Jones and John Lemkemeier, cofounders and managing partners of the local private-equity firm Sage Capital, and Spencer Finney, also of Sage, lead the investor group, which also includes Schlafly's first cousin, David Schlafly.
