ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Schlafly Beer knows a thing or two about beer crafting, as well as being a good neighbor. 

News 4 reported on the Stray Rescue of St. Louis experiencing an outbreak of the distemper disease. The no-kill shelter is located adjacent to the Schlafly Tap Room, which is located off Locust Street in downtown St. Louis. 

Schlafly CEO James Pendegraft said rescue animals are very important to the members of his brewery and marketing team, so they had to do something to assist the shelter with raising funds to help treat the dogs. 

"We always see Stray Rescue walking their dogs around the Tap Room," Pendegraft said in a press release. "So, we wanted to help our neighbors." 

The brewery will be selling thousands of made-from-scratch dog biscuits in an effort to raise $5,000 for the shelter. The Schlafly Oatmeal Stout Beer Biscuits will come five-to-a-bag and sell for $5. Both the Tap Room and Schlafly Bottleworks will sell the biscuits at their locations starting Nov. 4. 

The biscuits are made with Schlafly's Oatmeal Stout, spent grain, peanut butter, flour, and eggs. Schlafly said the amount of beer used is minimal and the alcohol will cook out during the baking process, so it will be safe for the dogs.
