ST. LOUIS — Schlafly Beer announced its return of a seasonal partnership with the St. Louis Area Food Bank of ‘Cans for Cans.’

‘Cans for Cans’ is a food drive initiative for the holiday giving season. From Nov. 12 through Dec. 7, St. Louisans can donate two non-perishable canned goods to the Schlafly Tap Room on Locust or Schlafly Bottleworks in Maplewood. If you donate, you will receive one can of Shlafly’s 16-ounce White Lager or IPA.

All donated canned goods will benefit the St. Louis Area Food Bank, the bi-state region’s largest non-profit food distribution center for those in need. In 2018, Schlafly Beer donated 4,705 pounds of food, which provided over 3,841 meals to those in need.

This is our third year of our ‘Cans for Cans’ initiative. Last year, we doubled our contribution, thanks to the community’s support. We hope to do the same again this year! At Schlafly, we feel that we have a responsibility to give back, and we’re lucky to have the support from St. Louisans who help us make a difference for local families who are fighting hunger each day.” Founding Brewer Stephen Hale said.

The St. Louis Area Food Bank distributes over 43 million pounds of food and personal care items annually. More than 392,000 people in the bi-state region rely on the Foodbank for assistance each year.

One can of Schlafly beer is redeemable for every two non-perishable canned food items donated. Guests can donate up to 12 canned food items to redeem up to six cans of beer per visit. Must be 21 years of age and older.
