If you're a fan of Schlafly beer from St. Louis, you'll be pleased to know it soon will be brewed locally. The Saint Louis Brewing Co., which produces Schlafly, has forged a partnership with Nashville's Blackstone Brewery to start making some of Schlafly's product at Blackstone's new brewing and bottling facility off Charlotte Avenue, Walker Duncan reports on Nashville Post.

Schlafly says on its blog that it's running out of capacity at its two breweries, so it reached out to former employee Dave Miller, who's now at Blackstone. They put together an agreement to devote some of Blackstone's capacity to producing Schlafly.

Schlafly reports that 80 percent of its beer is consumed in St. Louis, but the company is growing in other regions, including Tennessee.

Meanwhile, Schlafly has posted a job opening for a new position in Nashville: "This person will be responsible for account level sales in Tennessee and will work with our Quality Team to manage production of Schlafly Beers with our local partner at a recently constructed brewery in Nashville." Interested? Closing date for applications is July 15.
