#7: Schlafly Bottleworks

 Perhaps second to Budweiser and its sister brands, Schlafly is one of the most popular brewers in the St. Louis area. Its massive Maplewood location pays a tribute to the brewing scene. There you will find a restaurant, miniature museum, bar, venue and of course, the brewery part. In the summer, live music happens here too. Tours are free.

The brewery is currently housed in a former Shop 'n Save supermarket location. Also known as The Saint Louis Brewery, the beers are sold under the Schlafly brand. It was founded in 1989, by Dan Kopman and Tom Schlafly. (Schlafly, an attorney, is the nephew of political activist Phyllis Schlafly) According to their website, Schlafly is the first new brewery in St. Louis since the Prohibition era. Its beers have been sold in various parts of the Midwest. Specialty beers include over 25 seasonal ones.
