Schlafly Full Moon Festival

A bundle of bonfires awaits you each Fall at our Full Moon Festival. Join us as we celebrate the harvest with live music and a pig roast featuring hogs from local farmers.

Local chefs will also compete for your affection (and stomach space) in the deliciously-competitive Schlafly Chili Cook-Off. But despite the full moon, the stars of the night are always the kegs of White Lager, Pumpkin Ale, Hard Apple Cider, Coffee Stout and other seasonal favorites.

Schlafly Bottleworks - Maplewood

Full Moon Fest 2022 will take place on:

Saturday, November 5th from 3-9pm

Nope, no tickets required. This is a free event for all (including families and four-legged friends) to enjoy! Simply pay for whatever food and drink you want.

Get ready for your favorite Schlafly fall beers such as: Just A Bit Hazy IPA, White Lager, Pumpkin Ale, Hard Apple Cider, Coffee Stout, and more.

Beer will be available on the lot. All other beverages are available for purchase at the inside bar.

For the food, the Schlafly culinary team will be roasting whole hogs for the festivities. Guests can purchase a Pig Platter with pulled pork sandwich and two sides such as baked beans, mac and cheese, coleslaw or collard greens. A variety of BBQ sauces will also be available for slathering.

Yep! Five local chefs will compete in the 5th Annual Schlafly Chili Cook-Off. Guests will be able to purchase a chili sampler with tastings of the five participants’ chili creations. They will then be able to vote for their favorite. The winner will be crowned at the close of the festival. Heads up - the Chili Cook-Off always sells out early, so don't wait to get in line and try them out!

Our full Bottleworks menu will also be available for inside dining only.

Full Moon Fest will have a small dining tent, as well as picnic tables, so there will be some immediate seating. However, this fills up quickly and rotates out as people come and go.

You are welcome to bring your own camping chairs, but we ask that they are kept out of main walkways and plenty of room is left for traffic flow and staff to work, especially around the fires.

Well-behaved doggos on leashes are allowed. Please keep in mind this event takes place on our parking lot with large crowds.

This event is outdoors, so be sure to check the weather. We will have several large bonfires, though, to keep you warm while you drink your favorite Schlafly Beer!

Since Full Moon Fest takes place on our main parking lot, there will not be immediate parking available. There are several public lots nearby, as well as street parking - but they will fill quickly. We encourage public transportation, cabs, Uber or biking.
