Schlafly to Release Canned Cider in June

Schlafly Beer announces plans to release a year-round canned cider across their distribution footprint with Proper Cider Raspberry. The largest, locally owned brewery in St. Louis has been making cider for over 15 years now in its brewpubs, but this will be the first can package for full, year-round distribution, starting this summer.

This 6.8% old-fashioned hard cider is both semi-sweet and tart and pours a vibrant crimson from the real raspberries. Like all of Schlafly’s brews, this cider only uses real fruit. Fermented apples are the foundation of every cider, but the fresh raspberries add another level of flavor.

Schlafly regularly has a rotating hard cider on draft at its brewpubs. Founding Brewer Stephen Hale explains more, “Our cider has always been a crowd favorite and has developed somewhat of a cult following throughout the years. Now, we can introduce our cider to a larger audience across our distribution footprint and make the treasured recipe available to enjoy all year.”

This will also be the first time Schlafly will be able to offer a certified gluten-free product in the market. The true cider is only made with the fruit juice of the apples and raspberries without any added sugar or high-fructose corn syrup.

The 4-packs of Schlafly’s Proper Cider Raspberry will be available starting in mid-June, but cider fans can get a first taste at Schlafly’s Art Outside Festival this weekend, on Friday May 25 through Sunday, May 27. The suggested retail price for the 4-pack is $8.
