ST. LOUIS - Cheers to the dark side of the moon!
Schlafly, the St. Louis brewed beer company is ready for this summer’s solar eclipse.
Starting in June, the Path of Totality pack for its Helles-style lager will go on sale as a special edition in black and metallic silver in all bottles of the beer style, including six and 12-packs. A pair of solar glasses to watch the eclipse will also be included inside the pack.
“St. Louis is along the Path of Totality, the path of the eclipse that will experience total darkness. As science nerds at Schlafly, we are very excited for this, along with the rest of the city, so we wanted to do something fun to celebrate. The last total eclipse seen in St. Louis was almost 550 years before anyone had tried a Schlafly beer back in 1442,” says Founding Brewer Stephen Hale.
Schlafly is also hosting an eclipse field trip at the Dew Drop Inn in Bloomsdale on August 21. Schlafly will provide an all-inclusive pass including transportation from the Tap Room and back for $45. Tickets are limited and can be purchased at www.schlafly.com/eclipse starting on July 1.
