St Louis- The Schlafly Experience

 

We had some delicious meals in St. Louis. Ty and Emily love beer (just like Daniel!) and we took advantage of being in the same city as a wonderful microbrewery- Schlafly.

We had dinner on Friday night at the Schlafly Taproom. Everyone except this gluten-free gal started out with some awesome beers.

Rasperry Coffee Stout, Pale Ale (I’m not sure if that’s correct) and Blueberry Cider

We also had some AWESOME, reasonably priced dishes! I had the Grilled Salmon Salad (baby spinach, AMAZING grilled salmon, red onion, feta and a bacon vinaigrette). Daniel had an amazing “White Pizzetta” with chicken, basil and a garliky cheddar sauce. Tyler had a Roasted Leg of Lamb Sandwich and Emily decided upon the Tap Room Burger. We were all hungry and the food was so delicious! Here is a link to Schlafly’s Tap Room Menu!

We also went to Schlafly again on Sunday- but this time we went to Schlafly Bottleworks! We took a FREE tour of the facility which wrapped up with a FREE beer tasting! Unfortunately, they don’t bottle on Sundays, but we still had a very informative lesson in Schlafly brewing!

    Well Holly….THANK YOU!!! I definitely learned way more from your short, weekend trip to St. Louis than I’ve ever known before!! I loved hearing about each little thing, and really appreciate your blog. (i need to learn to do that!! I would love it, because I love writing and putting my thots down on paper…I mean on screen.) It looks like you had a wonderful time in St. Louis w/ the dogs, beer, and friends. I’m glad. We head there for the first time to see Ty and Em in a few weeks and I am pumped about seeing them!! Hope you and Daniel are doing well in Lexington.
