Schlafly Beer Releases Summer-Themed Patio Pack

Schlafly Beer (St. Louis, Missouri) has officially announced that it will begin the Seasonal Release of its Patio Pack, a Variety 12-Pack filled with summertime refreshment, in late June/early July 2020.

Put together to ensure that everyone on your porch or patio has a beer to enjoy this summer, the Patio Pack is a Mixed 12-pack of 12 oz. bottles that includes the following four approachable and easy-drinking brews (descriptions sourced directly from the brewery’s press release):

  • Dry Hopped APA – A hoppy ale with bitterness and prominent aromas of citrus and fruit. Dry-hopped to perfection, this American Pale Ale is a great pair for al fresco dining. ABV – 6%
  • Raspberry Hefeweizen – A true fruit beer fermented with real raspberries for a flavor that’s tart, low in bitterness and full of citrus aromas. ABV – 4.1%
  • Pale Ale – As Schlafly’s flagship beer, this English-style beer is a mild session ale with a refined balance of hops and malt. An approachable classic, especially for summertime sipping. ABV – 4.4%
  • American Lager – The smooth, crisp flavors puts this lager on the lighter side of craft beer. American Lager is a beer that appeals to the masses with a craft brewer’s care and attention to detail. A crushable choice for all beer drinkers. ABV – 5%

“During warmer seasons, beer drinkers gravitate towards lighter, sessionable beers. The Patio Pack gives us the opportunity to showcase that we brew a number of lower ABV beers across a variety of styles. The Patio Pack is a summer staple that our customers look forward to, and we try to keep it interesting by offering different selections every year,” explains Schlafly’s Founding Brewer Stephen Hale.

The Patio Pack is rolling out now and will be hanging around through the summer months of 2020. You can expect to find this Mixed 12-Pack of 12 oz. bottles at select craft beer-focused retailers located in Missouri, Tennessee and throughout the rest of Schlafly’s distribution footprint. Prost!
