, the Stable
, Morgan Street Brewery
and, of course, Schlafly

owner Jake Hafner
"I feel like beer's where wine was nine years ago when I got into that business," Hafner told me. "There's so much interest in craft beer now, and so many places we can go with it. There's no question it can work in St. Louis. It's not territorial at all. If anything, everybody really wants everyone else to succeed."
