It’s been 100 years since Stan The Man was born, and The Musial family, along with Urban Chestnut, is honoring and celebrating Stan with a special, commemorative beer – #6 Classic American Lager. Stan very much enjoyed a little beer from time to time, so UCBC brewed this Lager beer with a recipe that like Stan, pre-dated Prohibition, and is classically St. Louis.
#6, an American Lager will be available at Busch Stadium and nearby bars and restaurants, as well as in 4-packs of 16-oz. cans at grocery stores and beer retailers in St. Louis city, St. Louis and St. Charles counties and the Metro East area, beginning March 16.
Urban Chestnut collaborated with Musial’s family on the beer style, name and label design. #6 Classic American Lager gets its name from the number Stan Musial wore throughout his baseball career in St. Louis. Musial’s #6 was retired by the St. Louis Cardinals in 1963 – the same year he retired as a professional baseball player. The 24-time All Star was a first-ballot inductee into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1969.
