Schlafly Beer Releases Its Latest Stout Bout Sampler Pack

Schlafly Beer in St. Louis, Missouri has announced the release of its latest Stout Bout mixed pack for winter. Full details are below.

ST. LOUIS, MO —Schlafly Beer, the original, independent craft brewery in St. Louis, announces today the return of its winter sampler pack, Stout Bout, which features four stouts, including two new stouts, one year-round and one returning favorite: Mexican Chocolate Stout (6% ABV), Chai Latte Stout (ABV: 6.0%), Coconut Coffee Stout (ABV: 5.7%), and Oatmeal Stout (5.7% ABV). The variety pack is now available to the public.

“The Stout Bout name is a play on the boxing term for a match, and every year, our customers wait to see what flavors or “winners” make the pack. The sampler always features one of Schlafly’s classic stouts, Oatmeal, this year, and one variety that has to make a return appearance, which was Mexican Chocolate Stout,“ says Schlafly CEO Fran Caradonna. “We’re especially excited about two new beers entering the pack this year as they were submitted by fans last year.” 

Just like in previous years, the 2022 Stout Bout Sampler includes a QR code to a ballot where beer fans can vote for their favorite Schlafly Stout. Last year’s Hall of Fame sampler pack included the top four beers and included a QR Code asking fans to send in suggestions that inspired this year’s pack.

Apart from Schlafly’s Oatmeal Stout, all of the beers are exclusively available in this year’s Stout Bout variety pack.

Schlafly’s Stout Bout Sampler features three bottles of the four beer styles including:

  • Mexican Chocolate Stout (ABV: 6.0%): A classic American stout inspired by all the characteristics of real, Mexican-style hot chocolate. Creamy, roasty, sweet elements provide a perfect base for the addition of cocoa nibs, which the brewers add directly to the fermenter to age until their finest flavors blend with the stout. The addition of cinnamon adds a kick that balances well with all the flavors in the beer.

  • Chai Latte Stout (ABV: 6.0%): A stout with a distinctive boldness of earthy blends of chai spices, coupled with the rich notes of roasted barley and the smooth creaminess of lactose in a sew stout base.

  • Coconut Coffee Stout (ABV: 5.7%): This beer combines the aromatic bliss of local Goshen-roasted coffee with the smooth and nutty characteristics of coconut. With just the right balance of dark malts, rich coffee notes, and a sweet coconut finish, this stout will have you dreaming of a tropical oceanfront coffee shop.

  • Oatmeal Stout (ABV: 5.7%): A classic that delivers exactly what you’d expect in a British-style stout. Brewed to bring out the smooth, roasted malt and a touch of sweetness that’s not over the top, the Oatmeal Stout has been a fan favorite since 1991. It’s revered as one of “the originals.”

Schlafly’s Stout Bout Sampler Pack can be purchased at Schlafly brewpubs (Schlafly Tap Room in downtown St. Louis, Schlafly Bottleworks in Maplewood, Missouri, or Schlafly Bankside in St. Charles, Missouri) or across the brewery’s distribution for $17.99.
