ST. LOUIS, MO. (KTVI)- Schlafly Beer is supporting Earth Day in a big way this year with a ton of local initiatives, but the brewery also supports sustainable practices all year round, especially at their Bottleworks location which hosts a weekly evening farmers market on Wednesdays.

Chef Andy White and KT Ayers from Schlafly were in the Fox 2 kitchen to share with us a recipe from their special Farmers Market Menu at Bottleworks.

At peak season, around 30 farmers from around the area sell their produce at the Schlafly Bottleworks parking lot to sell their produce, meats, etc. to local shoppers. From time to time Schlafly also joins in with occasional beer samplings and other activities for guests to enjoy.

As part of Earth Day this year, Schlafly is donating $1 to St. Louis Earth Day for every Schlafly Beer pint sold in area restaurants; each purchase comes with a 'Harvest Card' on seed paper that guests can bring back to the Schlafly tent at the St. Louis Earth Day Festival to be planted at the Bottleworks garden.
