schlaflyapaOver 11000 votes and we now have a winner for the STL Hops St. Louis Beer Challenge. Ladies and gentlemen, this year’s winner is the Schlafly’s Dry-Hopped APA.

It was a hard-fought final match versus the Buffalo Brewing Rye IPA, with a 66.2% to 33.8% final match-up. Earlier in the week, the Rye IPA took a large lead in the poll, but Schlafly fans came around and fought their way back to make this a very impressive win.

I hope everyone had a lot of fun with this and didn’t take it too seriously. Congrats to all of the contestants and thanks again for giving us some great beer in St. Louis.
