October comes early at Companion! We’re teaming up with St. Louis favorites Schlafly Beer and Mandip for a celebration that’s as fun as it is tasty. From September 3rd to November 4th, visit your local Dierbergs, Straub’s and select Schnucks to pick up the perfect fall fare—warm from the oven Companion Bavarian Pretzels, fresh from the tap Schlafly beer and spicy sausage Mandip.
Be sure to pick up an exclusive coupon for $1 off your purchase of one Companion Pretzel 4-pack and one 12 oz. tub of Mandip (you must purchase both products to receive the discount).
But that’s not all. Join us for a unique tasting event at our Clayton cafe on October 6th from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm. And follow us on Facebook to keep track of opportunities to win exclusive prizes! More details to come.
