Interesting little place in a reviving stretch of Clayton. Clearly musically themed and professionally decorated with guitars and music-oriented photos and trendy colors, this feels like an upscale neighborhood bar. They happen to make a few of their own beers, and offer another several guest brews on tap. The service was a tad aloof, but ultimately OK. They have a little BBQ menu too but I didnít try any. Unfortunately I could only have one beer, but it was solid. Iíd go back given the opportunity. Brewery #686.

Right off Hampton and kinda behind what was Forest Park hospital which is no longer there. Nice look to the place. Low lighting with a nice mahogany looking bar and a few guitars and concert posters hanging on the wall. They now have up to 5 of their own beers on tap but also about 10 other beers from various craft breweries as well. A plus that I like is that beers are available in half pint or full pint. No food here but there are a few places within 100 yards of the place that will deliver here. A real decent chill vibe in the heart of dogtown.

Nice neighborhood feel to this place in a solid blue collar neighborhood. Dogtown is like a small Irish village in the middle of STL....everybody knows everybody else, and strangers are heartily welcomed. They only have four of their own beers available on tap, but I really enjoyed the two I had...an American brown (Velvet Underbrown), which is fast becoming the signature beer style in STL, and a nice dry-hopped saison (Bourgeois). They also had some decent guest beers, but nothing outstanding. I really like the fact that beerlovers now have neighborhood bars, like Heavy Riff, to go to, instead of having to go to an out of the way destination to get decent beer.

Heavy Riff is in a remodeled storefront right in the heart of Dogtown. I think it used to be a market. Anyway, the bar is awesome; dark finished wood, guitars lit up between the tap handles and booze shelves. There are 2-3 TVs but the decor here is mostly album and concert posters, in keeping with the music theme. Shuffleboard table in the back right. There are about 16 taps, only 1 of which was a house brew when I visited (very early on), but they plan to have 6 or so at all times once in full swing. The guest taps were really good; Evil Twin, a few local/regional things, some interesting stuff. There is no food, but you can bring it in from anywhere. Itís cozy but roomy at the same time; not overcrowded. Bartenders were cool and friendly. Iím thrilled to see this place open up near my old stomping grounds. Canít wait to visit again and try more of their stuff.

Stopped by on a Saturday night. Was a little crowded, but was able to get to the bar and order both of the beers they currently brew. They are located in a great area of Dogtown, with ample parking either in their lot or on the street. They had about 12 beers on tap, and more of their beers will be coming soon. We plan to return when a few more of their beers are on tap. They encourage ordering food from the area, lots of good places and lots of good food in the Dogtown area.
