Our 2007 Hop in the City Festival Beer. Schlafly Biere de Garde is a bottle-conditioned, French farmhouse-style ale. The name refers to the beer’s ability to improve with age and if you choose to age this 7% alcohol-by-volume ale, the tart fruitiness from the yeast and the sweet maltiness from the grains will meld together nicely for several years at cellar temperatures (51-55 degrees F).
Brewed as a modern re-creation of a classic European beer style to celebrate Saint Louis’s French heritage, Schlafly Biere de Garde pairs well with fruits, cheeses, and cured meats.
