Schlafly Releases Raspberry Hefeweizen Cans

Schlafly Beer, the largest locally-owned craft brewery in St. Louis, announces today the release of Raspberry Hefeweizen in 16-ounce cans. The true fruit beer, made with real raspberries, will be available in 12-packs of 16-ounce cans across Schlafly’s distribution, starting next week. The beer will still also be available in 6-pack bottles.

Known as “brewers’ summer water” around the brewery, the unfiltered wheat beer (4.1%, 16 IBUs) is perfect for warm weather sipping. The hazy pink beer is a true fruit beer—not a fruit-flavored beer—that uses real raspberry in the brewing process. Once the fruit’s sugar ferments out, the aroma and flavor of raspberries remain, making this a delightfully drinkable beer. With citrus aromas from the wheat and a desirable tart flavor, Raspberry Hefeweizen is low in bitterness and not overwhelmingly sweet, but refreshing and balanced.

“Drinking pink isn’t only for the rosé lovers out there,” says Founding Brewer Stephen Hale. “Our Raspberry Hefeweizen is the ideal crushable beer for warm weather. Now, in 16-ounce cans, it is even more approachable for summer pool hangs, beach time, or porch sipping.”

This release follows Schlafly’s steady addition to its can lineup, including 12-packs of 16-ounce cans of Pale Ale and White Lager. Schlafly will also offer their IPA in 12-packs of 16-ounce cans this spring/summer. In addition, Schlafly cans Proper Cider: Raspberry, the brewery’s Hop Allocation series, and Ale d’Or, a partnership with St. Louis’ Saint Louis Football Club. Raspberry Hefeweizen will available for a suggested retail price of $13.99 in 12-packs of 16-ounce cans across the Schlafly’s distribution.
