    The award-winning seasonal beer is now available in 16-ounce cans for the fall season


    (ST. LOUIS; August 30, 2018)—Schlafly Beer, the largest locally owned brewery in St. Louis, announces the release of its popular, seasonal Oktoberfest beer in 12-packs of 16-ounce cans. This is Schlafly’s second seasonal can release for 2018, following the year-round release of White Lager and spring seasonal release of Hoppy Wheat cans. The 12-packs are now available across Schlafly’s distribution footprint.

    The celebratory autumnal style, named one of USA Today’s Oktoberfest beers to try, is a traditional Märzen. At 5.5 % and 25 IBUs, the amber-colored beer is balanced in its sweetness and toasted malts from months of fermentation, making for a smooth and clean brew.

    Schlafly’s classic crowd-pleaser is perfect for any Oktoberfest celebrations here in the States. “Our Oktoberfest is authentic in its execution and evocation of heritage. We use Munich malt and German hops for this traditional Märzen. It’s a tasteful tribute to our German roots,” says Founding Brewer Stephen Hale.

    Schlafly Beer has been steadily adding to its can lineup, from the year-round release of 12-packs of 16-ounce White Lager cans and 16-ounce Hoppy Wheat cans to this summer’s canned Proper Cider: Raspberry. All canning and packaging takes place at Schlafly Beer’s Bottleworks location.

    The seasonal 12-packs of 16-ounce cans of Oktoberfest will be available now through fall across Schlafly’s distribution as well as the Schlafly brewpubs for $14.99 suggested retail. The beer style is also available in 6-pack and 12-pack bottles. For more on Schlafly Beer’s distribution, visit

    That's a hell of a price point. Do any other breweries do 12 packs of 16 oz cans? That's a lot of beer at a great price. It's a traditional 16 pack at $15. Less than a dollar a beer is unheard of for this type of beer.

    Locally I may see 4 packs of 16 oz cans go for $10 in the OF style. From CO, We get Eddyline who has their whole lineup in six pack 16 oz cans. They sit as the price point is a bit of a deterrent at $14-$16, which isn't too much better than $10-11 four packs.

    On a $/ oz comparison of say a Sam Adams $14 OF 12 pack, schafly is coming in 2 cents cheaper per ounce. I guess I'm lucky they aren't in NM. Hell of a deal.

    Just waiting for them to get within my reach. We had Schlafly available locally for a brief time so there's hope for it's return.

    No distro here, and I've personally never gotten to try it. Given how highly it's talked about here, and my love for Marzen's I really hope to taste it someday.

    Almost as good as goose 15 packs for $12. Not seen schlafly here in a bit. Used to buy the coffee stout for $36 a case.

    Not a huge fest fan so a pass if I did see it, would also be more like $20 plus tax here

    It is my understanding that Schlafly does not distribute in PA. I have seen Schlafly in Delaware (Total Wine & More).

    I did buy their beer at TW in DE. I thought I had made a purchase in PA as well. Guess I did not.
