Schlafly Beer partners with National Forest Foundation
(ST. LOUIS; April 6, 2018)—Schlafly Beer announces today a partnership with the National Forest Foundation, the nonprofit partner of the U.S. Forest Service that works to promote the health and public enjoyment of America’s 193-million-acre National Forest System.
The largest, locally owned craft brewery in St. Louis chose to support the organization as part of their overall 2018 sustainability mission. Other initiatives include the recent purchase of an electric smart car (Half Pint) for Founding Brewer Stephen Hale, the continuation of Schlafly Bottleworks’ Gardenworks and Wednesday Farmers Market, and more. In addition to funds to support of the National Forest Foundation’s overall mission, Schlafly will support the organization’s broader goals of improving watershed health by participating in stream cleans throughout their distribution footprint this spring and summer. The first takes place this Saturday with Greenway Network, Inc.
Hale explains, “It’s no coincidence that the two largest rivers in the United States converge in St. Louis to provide the main ingredient for our beloved beer. The trees that reside upstream act as a quality control and productivity assurance for our waterways. By facilitating watersheds and defining riverbanks, trees do more than their share to keep the beer flowing. The National Forest Foundation promotes the health of those trees and grasslands, and we’re proud to support them.”
Schlafly Beer will also include information about the National Forest Foundation on packaging of White Lager 12-packs to build awareness. Schlafly will post information about each individual stream clean throughout the spring/summer on Twitter – all are open to the public so that Schlafly fans can join the initiatives.
