St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) February 28, 2015 - Starting March 1, Noodles and Company will begin exclusively serving Schlafly beer at its seven St. Louis and Columbia restaurants. Schlafly's Hefeweizen, Kölsch and Pale Ale, and two seasonal selections will be available year-round. Seasonal selections will include Pumpkin and Christmas Ale, Helles-Style Summer Lager, Oktoberfest, Winter ESB and Raspberry Hefeweizen.
"We are excited to begin this partnership with a strong, local company," says Noodles & Company Franchise Partner Mike Hamra, President and CEO of Hamra Enterprises. "The wide variety of options offered by Schlafly is great to pair with the fresh options offered by Noodles & Company."
Noodles & Company and Schlafly leadership have worked together to create a pairing guide for restaurant guests.
"We wanted to make it easy for our guests to find the perfect Schlafly beer to pair with their Noodles & Company entrée," says Hamra.
For example, the light bodied Kölsch pairs well with lighter dishes such as the Pesto Cavatappi and Grilled Chicken Caesar, while the Pale Ales pair well with sweet and spicy dishes such as the Bankok Curry and Pad Thai.
Each month, Noodles & Company will feature a pairing special for $10. In March, guests can enjoy a bowl of Penne Rosa, which is penne pasta with a spicy tomato cream sauce, mushrooms, tomato, spinach, wine and Parmesan or feta cheese, with their choice of protein, such as grilled chicken breast or sautéed shrimp and a Schlafly Pale Ale for $10.
Schlafly is Missouri's largest locally owned, independent brewery, and Schlafly Pale Ale is the best selling craft beer in the St. Louis area.
