The St. Louis businesses make the most of co-branding.
Schlafly and Kaldi's both hold their own in the St. Louis business world--and they're even stronger together, as shown in this MSNBC segment. The report examines the successful partnership between the coffee and beer brewers, and one of their breakout products, the Schlafly Coffee Stout. "The first brew of the day should be coffee for many brewers. To blend that with beer seems a natural marriage,” said Schlafly’s Stephen Hale. “The relationship we have with Kaldi's is the most significant and long-lasting one we’ve had.” Watch the report to learn about the coffee-infused candy bars that Patric Chocolate produces with Kaldi's.

No, the St. Louis beer makers aren't moving--but they will be offering their products in New York starting Monday.
Schlafly is branching out--the St. Louis craft brewer's beers will make their debut in New York City starting May 13, Evan S. Benn reports for Esquire. "Outside of a small distribution footprint in the D.C. area, New York is the first place to get Schlafly beers beyond a 300-mile radius of St. Louis," according to the report. "For Schlafly co-founder Dan Kopman, this will be his second foray into selling beer in New York. He tried it back in the '80s, when he was a stateside salesman for Young's Brewery in London. It didn't go well. He got lost on the subway and had beer equipment stolen from his rental car." Find out which Schlafly styles Benn recommends to first-timers on Esquire.

The Maplewood market is now open Wednesdays through October.
Visitors of the Schlafly Farmers' Market, now open every Wednesday through October in the Schlafly Bottleworks parking lot, can expect a rotating list of vendors--in addition to vendors whose goods will rotate with the reasons. "The best example might be Three Rivers Community Farm, located in Elsah, Illinois, which currently offers winter greens -- spinach, arugula and bok choy, for example -- but with warmer weather will come a full cornucopia of spring crops, including squash and cherry tomatoes," RFT reports. Read the full report on Riverfront Times. What's your favorite item to pick up at the farmers' market? Tell us in the comments.

Schlafly Brewing's April Fool's Day prank--a batch of 'lyte' beers--are being auctioned for the Gateway Chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Schlafly Beer's April Fool's Day prank is having some very real benefits for a St. Louis foundation. Schlafly introduced a mock YouTube video this week featuring their new light beers, Schlaf Lyte, Schlaf Lyte Light, and Schlaf Lyte Fancy. Bottles produced by Schlafly are currently being auctioned on eBay to benefit. (If you're hoping they'll have beer in them, though, you're out of luck.) Sets of three bottles are currently auctioning for around $50; single bottles are auctioning from $1-$10. (Shipping, luckily, is free.) Make your bid on eBay.

The newspaper shared its favorite St. Louis spots.
Schlafly's Bottleworks and Tap Room are well known in the area for the great selection of local brews. Earlier this week, the New York Post gave the microbrew some love. The New York Post recently wrote about the culinary revolution taking place in St. Louis. In "Beyond the BBQ in St. Louis: A food and drinks scene emerges in the land of Budweiser," the Post shares its favorite microbrew spots. "Like Mad Art, the local microbrew scene exists in the shadow of Budweiser," the story reads. "Nevertheless, Schlafly has carved out a substantial niche, with a huge variety of brews on menus across St. Louis and at their flagship Tap Room." See more on Patch:

Owner David Schlafly is rehabbing the space in the 7400 block of Manchester Road.
One of the larger unoccupied commercial spaces in downtown Maplewood will hopefully soon have tenants. David Schlafly, owner of the 10,000 square foot building at 7412 Manchester Road, won’t say yet who the tenants will be, only that there will be two of them and they will be retail. The building sits between Stricker Auto Service and Tiffany's Original Diner. (See related on Patch: QuikTrip Frustrations Underscore Maplewood Meeting) He’s doing a gut rehab that will expose the brick walls and maple floors.

The building will be named “Light Works.” He expects the work to be finished in time…

On Wednesday, April 4 from 4-7 p.m., the Schlafly Farmers Market opens for the start of the 2012 farmers market season. The Schlafly Farmers Market, located in the parking lot of the Schlafly Bottleworks, continues its tradition of being one of the earliest producer-only farmers markets in the St. Louis region. The 2012 season marks the market’s ninth season at the Bottleworks and the market –previously the Maplewood Farmers Market – is being re-branded as the Schlafly Farmers Market. Since the market is part of Schlafly’s Sustainability Program and has been hosted at the Bottleworks since its inception, we decided the name should reflect its close connection with Schlafly Beer. Schlafly is proud not only to produce great local products, …
