ST. LOUIS, MO/May 14, 2017 (STLRestaurant.News) Schlafly Beer – A St. Louis brewing company is joining in the excitement of the much anticipated total solar eclipse this summer.
Schlafly Beer has announced plans to commemorate this summer’s solar eclipse with a special Path of Totality pack for its Helles-style lager. Beginning in June, consumers can purchase the special edition, black and metallic silver in all bottles of the beer style, including six and 12-packs. A pair of solar glasses to watch the phenomenon will also be included inside the pack.
“St. Louis is along the Path of Totality, the path of the eclipse that will experience total darkness. As science nerds at Schlafly, we are very excited for this, along with the rest of the city, so we wanted to do something fun to celebrate. The last total eclipse seen in St. Louis was almost 550 years before anyone had tried a Schlafly beer back in 1442,” said Founding Brewer Stephen Hale.
In addition, the brewing company will also offer a field trip to celebrate the spectacular event. Schlafly will bring the party to the epicenter of the eclipse with the “Schlafly’s Eclipse Field Trip” at the Dew Drop Inn in Bloomsdale, MO on August 21, 2017. The event will offer BBQ, beers, lawn games, and live music.
For the ultimate excursion, Schlafly will provide an all-inclusive pass including transportation from the Tap Room and back for $45. Tickets are limited and can be purchased at www.schlafly.com/eclipse starting on July 1.
A total solar eclipse occurs when the sun disappears behind the moon, turning daylight into twilight. This will also result in a rapid drop in and will reveal massive streamers of light streaking through the sky around the silhouette of the moon. This incredible sighting will move through the continental United States on August 21, 2017.
The last total eclipse occurred on June 18, 1918. It crossed the United States from Washington State to Florida.
