Schlafly (Change Brewing)

Wed 09 Mar 11 | 12:07 AM ET
In 1989, Tom Schlafly and Dan Kopman wanted to make their own beer and start a brewpub, but they had a lot going against them: Craft beer was not popular, microbreweries were illegal in Missouri and their plan was to do this in St. Louis--home of the King of the Beers, Anheuser-Busch. Schlafly, who also happens to be an attorney, was able to successfully lobby the state legislature to get permission to sell his beer. Now, about two decades after they opened their first venue, Schlafly Beer is producing 36,000 barrels of beer a year and boasting revenue of $13 Million from their microbrewery and restaurant sales.
