ST. LOUIS – Although the sting of the 2013 World Series might have worn off a bit, folks are still biting the bullet and paying up on their wagers.
On Wednesday night, Schlafly co-founder Dan Kopman made good on his bet with Sam Adams founder Jim Koch: a Schlafly Pale Ale, a Pappy's dinner, and an all-expenses paid trip to St. Louis for some Sam Adams employees.
The Boston and St. Louis breweries hosted a tap takeover where each brewer had 10 taps for people to try before and during Wednesday's St. Louis Cardinals and Boston Red Sox game.
The two breweries are playing nicely together as they collaborate on a new brew for National IPA Day - Double Red Rally Cap IPA. The beer, featuring a high concentration of hops, as well as Caramel 60 and Caramel 120, will be available for a limited time in St. Louis and possibly Boston in time for the postseason.
This past November, Schlafly also made good on another part of its bet by serving Boston brewery, Harpoon, on the menu in its tap room.
Had St. Louis won their 12th championship, Koch would have had to come up with two cases of a Boston Lager and a lobster dinner.
