FoodWire: Some Love for Schlafly
First up, we have a poll for "Best Midwest Craft Brewery" on the Web site the Full Pint. Schlafly won with 25% of the vote, edging Great Lakes Brewery by 160 votes.
Schlafly also garnered attention from Baltimore Sun beer blogger Rob Kasper. Kasper attended Savor, a craft-beer celebration in Washington, D.C., this past weekend. Dan Kopman was there, touting some of Schlafly's brews. Kasper was a fan:
The one beer I went back to get again was the Schlafly Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout. Wow!
(This might not have been the first time Kasper had heard of Schlafly: His son, Matt, was the editorial fellow at the RFT for six months last year and early this year.)
Speaking of beer! My feature article on St. Louis' craft-beer scene will be published tomorrow and should be available online later today. Stay tuned. I had a lot of fun working on it and think you'll enjoy reading it.
