Visited for dinner later on a Sunday evening. Located near downtown in a big, beautifully restored old world brick building. The interior is sizeable, beautiful restored wood and brick. There is a bar area straight ahead as you enter, as well as another bar and dining room to the right. Selection was 14 house beers as well as 2 casks. Mostly standard lineup, though a couple of seasonal and special beers. A small pilot brewery system is visible through the window at the end of the room. Bartender very engaging and personable. Food is standard pub menu (a few traditional British offerings) plus a nice array of mussels. Great vibe to the place, I enjoyed this visit more than the Bottleworks location.
76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
Classic brewpub in downtown St Louis. Pretty quiet when I got there but I got there near close. The place is quite large, 2 full bars and a merch/bottle store. Service was quite homey and friendly and the beers were good. Prices were also quite resonable. Didnít try the food but they had some good looking options. Iíd revisit again when in Slu.
Iíve been to this taproom a couple of times, most recently by myself while playing a show in St Louis. Overall this is a nice place to visit, nothing extraordinary about it, nice food, good beers on tap, good sampler options, and nice rarish beers to take home if you choose to do so. Would go back again for sure, one of the best beer places in St Louis.
A solid spot in StL with good food and a nice tap list. The ambiance is good, which is better than I can say for the service; our server was cold and disinterested until he dropped off the bill. Service aside, the place is worth a stop if youíre in the area.
Final stop of the evening. This place is huge and doing a good business even on a Monday night. Because its so large, lots of cars in the lot still doesnt look like a lot of people inside. I hit the back bar, which was pretty cool, with steel settings of the regular beers set into the bar surface. The bartender was friendly and knowledgeable about his beers, which seems to be a theme here. They do indeed have flights, either a pre-set thing or choose your own six for $10. I enjoyed most of the beers I tried. Did not try the food. Another solid stop.
A huge space divided into two distinct drinking areas. At capacity, they could easily fit a few hundred people in here. I visited on a Friday night and didnít find it too busy. Watching the bartender deal with the stream of customers reminded me of just how valuable good staff can be. He effortlessly changed gears from describing some of the beers to an overwhelmed tourist to giving a pretty detailed answer to a question some beer geek asked about their brewing process. It was impressive. As for the beers, I enjoyed them quite a bit. 15 of their own available on tap plus one on cask. I was able to make my own flight (other reviewers mention that this isnít possible - maybe ask more nicely next time?). The India Brown Ale was absolutely fantastic, a perfect representation of a pretty unsexy style. Overall, a top tier brewpub. An essential stop if youíre visiting town.
In St. Louis on a business trip last week. Stopped in on 7/24 as soon as I got into town, before even checking into my hotel. This is the one place I wanted to visit more than any others. Got in around 3 PM and grabbed a seat at the bar. Only a few people there, which was nice. Bartender was quick to serve me and the other customers and engage in some small chat. Friendly guy. Beer selection was very nice! Even had a couple selections on cask. I am very familiar with Schlaflyís beers as they are heavily distributed around the Louisville, KY area (where Iím from). And I am certainly a fan. However their beers on tap coming straight from the source were far better than their bottled beers I am familiar with. Unfortunately I only had beers and did not order any food, so I canít grade that. But the tap room was plenty large with two bars and plenty of seating. Very clean and upscale looking, but with a casual atmosphere. It was nice that they had a large viewing window into the brewing area too. Very cool place and an absolute must stop for craft beer fans in the area.
