Schlafly Beer Brings Back Raspberry Hefeweizen for the Summer Season

Schlafly Beer Brings Back Raspberry Hefeweizen for the Summer Season

Schlafly Beer, the original independent craft brewery in St. Louis, has announced the return of its popular seasonal beer Raspberry Hefeweizen. This hazy beer is fermented with real fruit, making it a true fruit beer rather than a fruit-flavored beer. Raspberry Hefeweizen is known for its natural pink color and hazy appearance with citrus aromas from the wheat and a desirable flavor that is both pleasant and tart.

At 4.1% ABV, Raspberry Hefeweizen is the perfect summer beer, low in bitterness and not overwhelmingly sweet. Schlafly brewers refer to it as their "summer water." This year's Pantone Color of the Year, Viva Magenta, also matches the beer's branding, making it the perfect beverage to enjoy on a hot summer day.

“Raspberry Hefeweizen is a seasonal favorite of both our fans and brewers," says Schlafly Beer CEO, Fran Caradonna, in a press release. “It’s tart and refreshing so it’s the perfect beer to pull people out of their winter hibernation and celebrate warmer weather with friends. It also seems fitting that this year’s Pantone Color of the Year is Viva Magenta so we had fun playing off this for the marketing of Raspberry Hefeweizen. It encourages consumers to drink pink and seek out items in line with this year’s trending color.”

Raspberry Hefeweizen is now available for purchase across Schlafly's distribution channels for $9.99 per 6-pack of 12oz bottles or $17.99 per 12-pack of 16oz cans. The beer is also available at all four Schlafly brewpubs, including the Schlafly Tap Room in downtown St. Louis, Schlafly Bottleworks in the Maplewood neighborhood of St. Louis, Schlafly Bankside in St. Charles, MO, and Schlafly Highland Square in Highland, IL.

Schlafly Beer was founded in 1991 and has since become one of the largest independent craft breweries in the Midwest. The brewery has a long history of producing high-quality, hand-crafted beers that celebrate the rich history and culture of St. Louis. With Raspberry Hefeweizen back on the shelves, beer lovers across the region can enjoy a taste of summer in every sip.
