On Tap: Schlafly Beer Launches St. Louis Earth Day Celebration
This year marks an important milestone in the partnership between Schlafly Beer and Earth Day: The companies have been partners for 10 years! Before the main Earth Day festivities on April 24, Schlafly has a lineup of events to mark the occasion that are both beer-filled and green-friendly.
To start, the local brewery—which was one of the original members of STL’s Green Dining Alliance—is giving away 10,000 native species trees at their brew pubs from April 1-24. A customer perk comes in the form of 4,000 reusable totes—all you have to do is buy a 12 pack of the brewery’s Pale Ale with an Earth Day sticker on it and get voucher for the tote inside. The voucher is also made out of wild flower seed paper, so you can plant it!
Also, $1 per pint sold in select spots around town will benefit St. Louis Earth Day for these six weeks leading up to Earth Day.
And if you’re really up for a challenge, Schlafly is encouraging attendees to ride their bikes to St Louis Earth Day 2016. The first 300 to show up will get a Schlafly stainless steel pint. Be on the lookout for the launch of a special edition IPA as well.
Anheuser-Busch announced this week that it will be bringing Mexico’s Estrella Jalisco beer to 10 states starting this month. As reported by St. Louis Post Dispatch, the light-flavored pilsner from Guadalajara will be brewed by Grupo Modelo S.A.B. de C.V. before it’s transported to the US.
Getting into spring mode? So are we. Head to Planter’s House for their newest Spring Break Cocktails. Think of your college favorites from spring break, but with a Planter’s House twist. Enjoy an STL L.I.T. (a variation of a Long Island Iced Tea); a Salt, Surf, Sun (a new version of a Salty Dog); or an Urban Jungle Juice (a version of Jungle Juice you might have had in college). 1000 Mississippi Ave., Lafayette Square
March 25: It’s the final Friday in March, which means it’s time for the latest edition of SLAM Underground. Sip on cocktails from the bar while taking in the night inspired by the museum’s latest exhibit, “The Carpet and the Connoisseur: The James F. Ballard Collection of Oriental Rugs.” Dance to music provided by DJ Alexis Tucci, get skilled on taking phone travel photography and enjoy a colorful performance by The Sun and The Sea. One Fine Arts Drive, Forest Park
March 25: The Dark Room is two years old! Help celebrate the wine bar and photo gallery’s contribution to Grand Center starting at 4pm with neighborhood happy hour and complimentary passed hors d’oeuvres. There will be live music all evening and a wine special beginning at 6pm. 615 N. Grand Blvd., Grand Center
March 26: Get your drink and yoga on at The Old Bakery Beer Company for Poses and Pints. Spend an hour relaxing and revitalizing, then stay for drinks and lunch. 400 Landmarks Blvd., Alton, Ill.
March 31: Tacos and beer—they’re a perfect pair. Next Thursday starting at 5pm, head to Bridge Tap House and Wine Bar to enjoy an evening of pairings with four of Earthbound Beer’s brews on tap while enjoying a taco with each. 1004 Locust St., Downtown
