THURSDAY, MAY 26, 2016

After the Cubs sweep the Cardinals (series ends May 25), you can come by and raise a glass of truly great beer– even if it does come from the waters of St. Louis!  Schlafly is a great beer and we’re proud to feature it on Thursday, May 26.

You can also get your groove on with DJs Mr D & Teebot starting at 9PM. Chef Matt O’Neill has a fantastically delicious menu to pair up with these beers so come on in and make it a great Thursday night out!

Yakima Wheat Ale
5.0% ABV
25 IBU
Schlafly Beer Yakima Wheat Ale is a hoppy wheat beer brewed with American hops from
the Yakima River Valley in Washington State. The blend of wheat and
barley lends a touch of toffee sweetness while the hops contribute the
spiciness of juniper and pepper. Altogether they create a crisp,
refreshing beer with a hoppy bite.

Octopus and Melon
octopus tentacles fried in a light rice flour batter / watermelon, olive, and mint salad / feta aioli.


 

Double Bean Blonde
Blonde Ale
6.3% ABV

combines the prominent flavors and aromas of coffee and the smooth
richness of chocolate. Simple, straightforward malts and hops to keep
the focus on the notable characteristics of the featured ingredients.
After the beer is fermented it rests on cocoa nibs sourced from
Ghana—one of the world’s largest chocolate exporters. In the final

Grapefruit IPA
India Pale Ale
5.0% ABV
40 IBU
This a fruit beer- not a fruit-flavored beer- whose wort is mixed with pounds of grapefruit
puree to allow the sugar to ferment out, leaving the tropical aromas
of the fruit. American Chinook, Cascade and Citra hops were selected
for their distinct citrus and floral attributes, add American ale
yeast that brings a layered fullness to the beer, making this
dry-hopped IPA notable for its bold flavor, tart characteristics, and
approachable hoppiness.

Food Pairing:

crispy battered hearts of palm / jicama slaw / arugula / corn tortillas /  spicy Jalapeño aioli.


 

American IPA
India Pale Ale
7.2% ABV

Schlafly Beer American IPA gets its bold hop flavor from 100% American hops and its
deep gold and full body from pale and crystal malted barley. A blend
of Amarillo, Centennial and Simcoe hop varietals imparts AIPA with
bitterness and prominent aromas of citrus and fruit. Schlafly brewers
select these hops on an annual pilgrimage to the hop farms of Pacific
Northwest.

Food Pairing:
