In continuation of our Craft Beer Fest, on December 5 from 6 to 9 p.m., Schlafly Beer out of St. Louis will team up with the Arkansas Times to throw a pub crawl benefiting Argenta Arts Foundation. From 6 to 7 p.m., Schlafly's co-founder Dan Kopman will be at Cornerstone Deli and Pub, debuting a secret specialty beer. The next hour, from 7 to 8 p.m., Kopman will be at Reno's Argenta Cafe, and from 8 to 9 p.m., he'll be at Cregeen's Irish Pub. They'll be specialty and market beers at each stop. Kopman will talk about the specialty beers and be around to answer any questions, and people who show up at all three bars will be eligible for a free raffle to win Schalfly's gear — t-shirts, caps and even a personalized neon sign.
Schlafly's brews 50,000 barrels of beer a year — the equivalent of 650,000 cases. It's distributed in 12 states and the District of Columbia.
