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!

Daniel illustrating the difference between ales and lagers.
And finally… taste testing time!
We had a wonderfully informative and hoppy (pun intended) time at Schlafly!
Good friends, good beer, good times!
