Recently dubbed the top pick for microbreweries in St. Louis by Ladue News readers, Schlafly is an easy draw for fans of beer. So what on earth tempted me to explore the “king of microbreweries?”
The promise of great food & good company, of course.
Don’t worry, beer lovers. There was plenty poured & much sampled by my fellow dinner mates.
We enjoyed quite a spread of barbeque ribs, thick layers of lasagna, and plump mussels drenched in a beer-steamed broth. & yes, that is a wine glass you see. So if you’re like me & don’t prefer a cold one, clearly you can find other options here. Considering I’m surrounded by beer aficionados, this is a major bonus for me from any brewery!
Now, let’s talk about that beer, shall we? My friends (plus hubby!) gave me the lowdown on the goods. Melissa enjoyed the Dortmunder, finding it to be a refreshing summer beer. Eric chose the Tasmanian IPA, which is only offered in the winter months, but he found the sweet, floral brew to be inconsistent. Greg favored the Old Ale, another seasonal selection that is only offered in limited supply. The group thought the Coffee Stout, which is blended specially with Kaldi’s coffee, hit the tongue like a full roast. Ultimately, the Schlafly Tap Room, with its endless options, proved to be a delight for all of us. Stop in soon for plans on our upcoming travel adventure!
