About Schlafly Tap Room
The Saint Louis Brewery, maker of Schlafly Beer, is Missouri’s largest locally owned independent brewery. Each year they brew over 50 styles, ranging from their staples like Pale Ale and Hefeweizen, to special releases like Double Bean Blond and Pumpkin Ale. The Schlafly Tap Room in Downtown St. Louis first opened its doors in 1991 and holds the distinction of being the first new brewpub to open in Missouri since Prohibition. Housed in a beautifully restored wood and brick building on the National Historic Register, The Schlafly Tap Room enjoys a reputation as a casual, earthy place to drink, dine, listen to great live music, or host a special event.
Our Tap Room brewpub and restaurant was officially established in 1991. The original flag that was planted remains our flagship Schlafly experience. And its history stretches back even further than our occupancy. Samuel L. Sherer, the building’s original designer and self-taught architect, studied Ruskin, Morris and the Arts and Crafts movement in England and later became the first Director of the St. Louis Art Museum. The two original adjoining buildings have better than good bones. They have steel girders put in place to support the weight of printing presses of the early 1900’s for the Swift Printing Company. He came to the realization that “architecture is the most useful of the fine arts and the finest of the useful arts.” We feel similarly about beer. After 65 years, Swift Printing relocated their operations, leaving this structure uninhabited for the next 22 years.
