Watch a Polo Match, Help Kids – It’s as Simple as That

Horse races are exciting and all, but let’s face it: they’re over quicker than you can say pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis. Why yes, that is the longest word in the English dictionary. No, we’re not going to tell you what it means. Look it up. The point is, if you blink, you’ll likely miss a horse race. A polo match, though… now that’s what we call equestrian entertainment.

Now You See Us, Now You… Still See Us Even Though We’re in Camo

Remember when you went to pick up your date on prom night? You know, that time when The Father greeted you at the door – decked out in camouflage and sharpening a skinning knife while reminding you about curfew. Okay, maybe that was just us, but still. Point is… camo is pretty badass. Sure, it comes in handy when you’re out on a hunt, but it also just looks cool. Which got us thinking: Why should we be the only ones looking cool in camo? Why can’t our beer rock it too? So, we decided to do something about that. Introducing: Kräftig’s limited-edition camo beer cans and packaging. Continue reading

This Year’s Beer Competition Season (So Far!)

We like heavy metal. And we’re not talking about that music with the double bass and the piercing vocals and the propensity to cause massive headaches. No, we’re talking about the heavy metals of chemistry. Because we’re nerds like that – especially Brewmaster Marc Gottfried. But nerds are in right now, so it’s all cool. Speaking of cool and heavy metal, we won what basically amounts to a stein full of medals this beer competition season, which is pretty cool if you ask us. Continue reading

3 Best Ballpark Food Items to Pair with Kräftig

Sure, the baseball season’s well over halfway through, but there’s still a lot of ball left to play. Which means there’s still a lot of home games left to attend. Which means there’s still a lot of ballpark food left to eat (because you can’t just go to a game and not eat… that would be like taking “America” out of America’s pastime). And since everyone knows ballpark food is better with beer, it ultimately means there’s still a lot of Kräftig left to drink.

Here’s the deal, St. Louis: rooting for the home team starts with a beer in one hand and some grub in the other. So, grab a 24oz can of Kräftig Light or Kräftig Lager at one of these stadium locations:
*8th Street Market – Section 153
*Jack Daniel’s Bar – Section 142
*Broadway Market – Section 107
*Terrace Market – Section 452

and then chow down on some awesome food. Oh, and if you need help deciding what to pair with your favorite beer, here’s some of the grub we recommend for a good time:

Kräftig’s Guide to Outdoor Summer Drinking

Hey, it’s been a hot summer – hotter than a habanero in Hell (in other words: pretty damn hot) – so we understand if you haven’t gone outside all that much. But come on, it’s summer. The sun’s out. You should be too. Slather on some sunscreen if you’re really worried about things. Carry around one of those handheld fans like a dad at a theme park if it’ll make you feel better. Or you could just grab a can of Kräftig and let the good times roll. The lager’s refreshing and you can even use the can as an ice pack if you start to feel faint. It’s a win-win.

Of course, not all outdoor spaces are equal when drinking is involved. So, here’s some of our favorite places to drink Kräftig outside on a summer night (or afternoon… or morning if you’re into that):

To that end, we’re pleased to announce our participation in ALIVE’s Wine Tasting and Auction on Thursday, June 28th.

How to Drink Kräftig with Your Dad on Father’s Day

Dads get a bad rap sometimes. Sure, your old man once conned you into going on a snipe hunt or asking the kind gentleman at the auto shop for blinker fluid, but let’s face it… you wouldn’t be who you are today without his antics. He was just teaching you invaluable life lessons from a place of love and fatherly wisdom. You should thank him, really. Buy the guy some beer. He deserves it. Continue reading

Kräftig, Concerts, and Classic Movies

You’re doing summer wrong if a gazebo isn’t a part of your plans. It’s as simple as that. Sure, summer means float trips and fairs and nostalgic baseball games that remind you of either playing catch with your dad or of necking with your old high school sweetheart while watching Kevin Costner play ball on the big screen. Don’t get us wrong, we love all those summery things. But nothing quite compares to an evening with a gazebo and two of America’s greatest art forms: music and movies.
