I’ve enjoyed consistently great service on all my visits to Perennial. They have a tight selection of their beers and collaborations, plus a guest beer, which happened to be LSD stout from 2nd Shift on my most recent visit. LSD was a tremendous recommendation from my bartender. What I really enjoy about this place and Civil Life is that the relatively "off the beaten path" locations filter the less dedicated beer lovers from the crowd. The other patrons have been a joy to interact with. Highly recommended.
Amazing spot. Great beers. Tasting sizes available. Special releases. Free parking lot - no hassle. Love it.

Located in an offbeat side of town in what looks like a refurbished factory. Clean interior with a nice copper bar. 7 beers available the day I went. Good service. Small menu available. Horrible music. Good beer and a must stop when in Saint Louis.
Located far away from the rest of the beer attractions in St Louis. Luckily parking’s readily available in a lot right in front of the tap room. I timed my visit poorly, and ended walking in just after a few beer bus tours had arrived, so the place was pretty rammed. 8 beers were available, a few which seemed exclusive to the brewery. BA Kyoto Sump had just kicked before I arrived, which was a bit unlucky. I tried a black berliner weiss which was just strange, loaded up with spices and other things. The service was merely passable. I’ll give them some slack because it was busy, but the staff seemed to project a holier-than-thou attitude that rubbed me the wrong way. To be honest, I was probably also in a cranky mood because I ended up sitting next to some beer bro who was loudly bragging to another tourist about how many rare Side Project bottles he had. My fight or flight instinct kicked into overdrive when they eventually proceeded to have a very awkward conversation about setting up a trade. Overall, I ended up not having as much fun here as I thought I would. I’ll definitely return when I’m in town again, hopefully at a time when it’s a little less chaotic.
A very cool brewery tap room with a nice bar in the back and plenty of seating. Bartenders were very friendly and knowledgeable about the product. There were a good number of taps along with bottles to go. Samplers were available. Prices were nice. A nice brewery tap room.
Visited during RBSG bus tour. Sort of in a strip it seems... 2 seperate locations in the same strip. First we visited the barrel house, which I’m not sure is typically open to the public... But it was pretty amazing. The brewers and staff were more than accomodating, and were very generous in sharing some of their amazing perennial and Side Project sours. Amazing beers. When I was done there, I stopped by their actual tap room, which is a pretty nice-looking sort of modern area. Staff was as nice as they could have been, considering a bus full of beer nerds just stormed their bar. I was very impressed with the quality of the beers at this brewery, and with their hospitality. Would go out of my way to visit again.
