The beers were drinkable, except the Pumpkin Ale. Yuck. The food was alright - though my hamburger was far overcooked. Even so, the best place that Iím aware of in St. Charles for beer, and nice to get some that I wouldnít have otherwise tried. So, it was a win. But I wouldnít make much of an effort to go back.

I had an absolutely killer pizza and some god awful brews here. Everything tasted very homoginized. Nothing really malty, nothing hoppy. Just sort of bleh. The tanks surrounding the dining room are cool to look at. It was very obvious this was a restaurant using craft beer as a niche. I would look elsewhere if in St. Louis.

Nice litle place in downtown St. Charles. Beer and food are both fair. About 5 regualr beers plus one seasonal. Not a bad place for a quick stop, but dont expect too much.

Very cool building in great little main street that St. Charles has. Went with the wife and kids and they sat us in a basement room so did not get a great feel of the bar area but it looked nice. Only 6 beers on tap and all were average at best. Food was a little disappointing but the pizza was better than expected. Service was a bit lacking. Kind of a tourist brewpub. Worth a breif stop if working in the area, but there are too many good breweries in STL to make a trip out to this place.

My wife and I visited here on Memorial Day after riding a segment of the Katy Trail. The location is as good as it gets in St. Charles, right down along the Trail and riverfront in the old historic district. The building itself is really cool on the backside, which is an old brick wall with a water will facing a stream, but the entrance is newer and bland. The interior is split-level, with a rectangle bar area upstairs and some dining rooms downstairs and on the sides. Pretty big. There was a single bartender handling lunch, and she was good. There are 5 permanent taps- Missouri Brown, Trailhead Red, Riverboat Raspberry, Trailblazer Blond, and the Old Courthouse Stout on Nitro- plus 1 rotator, so thereís not much unexpected here. The Maibock was on when we visited. The food is decent, pretty much average American pub fare. The beer itself is below average, nothing special at all. For that reason, and the distance of the place from where I live, I donít have a reason to return. That said, itís worth visiting if youíre out here because there arenít many other options and itís a good place overall.

Another casual dining place that is located in a historic district with some backstory. Food was decent but not memorable, same for the beer selection. Beer selection is standard fare + their microbrews.

nice microbrewery with great atmosphere. Good variety of brew selections. Most of the beers tend to be a bit average craft brews but they do have some very good seasonal. Food is good too.

I go to this place more for the food than for the beer. I like the Porter and the Brown Ale. The Amber used to be better, but has declined the last couple times Iíve been there. My brother raves about the Rainbow Red Ale, which has a fruity finish. (Iím not into fruit beers.) The food is excellent, from the crab & artichoke dip to the fish & chips to the BBQ Chicken Pizza to the Salmon. If you canít find something you like on the menu here, you are just too damn picky! The service is usually good but not great. Lunch service tends to be better as itís less crowded. They have two smaller patios full of tables that are nice if you can find a table there. The patios also have ceiling fans and heaters to help when the weather isnít perfect. You wonít find any incredible new beers here, but you will find a few decent ones to be paired with some great food. Try hitting this place before you go to the Casino.

Visited a few times before, and the atmosphere is always fun. We tried the sampler this time and enjoyed all but one. We ordered a meal and they were both very good. The service at the bar is lacking a smile now and then, but overall, a decent place to spend an afternoon or evening.
