Iíve 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.

Overall a great spot. 7 of their beers on tap. Just missed abraxas. Damn. They do taster pours and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. A total must when in st.Louis.

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 parkingís 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. Iíll 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. Iíll definitely return when Iím in town again, hopefully at a time when itís 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 Iím 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.

This was the last stop on the RBSG 2014 Bus Tour. The pride of St. Louis and place number 800.

Another place thatís a bit hard to rate as we started off in their barrel room getting to taste the big guns like BA Abraxus, BA Sump, Fuzzy, and a number of other Perennial and Side Project gems.

Just a few doors down is the main tasting room. Small bar with a bunch of tables set out about the room and some bar/ledge/table space against the wall opposite the bar.

They had maybe 8-10 taps and a handful of bottles available. A few interesting ciders (imports) available as well as some wine for the non-beer crowd typically known as girlfriends and wives.

Friendly service from the bar staff and amazing generosity from the brewery staff on the bottle tasting portion of the afternoon. The place itself is just okay, but the beers are solid.

Just an unfinished portion of the facility with a concrete floor, exposed duct work, a large bar and an endless 5 gallon jug of cold water. Reminds me a bit of Cigar Cityís original tasting room. Fun, laid-back crowd and friendly atmosphere. There is a menu with a small selection of snack items - pretzels, cold cuts, cheeses and such - that I will probably hit later on. The two brewers (owners?) could not have been a single bit more accommodating or generous during our visit on the RBSG 2014 bus tour. They talked in length about their breweries (Perennial/Side Project) and shared Side Project and Perennial beers with all those on the bus tour. Thatís on top of the free bottles of Perennial and Side Project beers given away at the Grand Tasting a day later. I would award a higher score for "selection," but most of the beers on tap are styles Iím not crazy about. Regardless, I tried them all and found that everything is thoughtfully and smartly brewed. Donít hesitate to pull the trigger on a visit if youíre in STL. Oh, and itís air conditioned. Finally ordered something to eat. A meat and cheese plate. The cheese and bread were great. Unfortunately, they were accompanied by a processed meat product that looked like it consisted of a blender full of the unused parts of a pig after the butcher has had his way with it. Shaped to resemble Scrapple, Spam or Treet... only far grosser than any of those three. Iíd avoid that dish. Next time, Iíll go for the pulled pork or a salad. Fortunately, people are visiting for the beer. Lesson learned - donít show up hungry.
