typical taproom in a warehouse setup but they do have a nice outdoor biergarten which is nice during St. Louis’s 3 week summers. They had 12-14 on tap with their German offerings being the big standouts. Everyone was cordial and friendly which is a plus. The kitchen was closed when I got there so I can’t comment on the food though they do offer it.
Interesting place with its own parking lot -major plus there! Inside is a large wraparound bar and a few other tables. 14 taps running when I was there, with a German-inspired taplist. Flights of four available with 5 oz pours. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly, and they new their beer as well. Beer was solid. All in all a really good place and well worth a stop.
Came here with Joe. Nice place. Good beers. Fair prices. Didn’t have any food. But a worthwhile stop when in STL.
New rating: March 2015. Great place. Staff was very knowledgable and they had lots of great beers on tap, more than when I went several years ago. Probably the best brewery stop in STL.
Twinned a stop here with a pilgrimage to Pappy’s Smokehouse, which is only a couple of blocks away. The large Biergarten has rows of communal tables, and probably would have been a fun way to waste a few hours if it wasn’t so hot outside. I opted to hang out in the bar instead. 15 taps were available pouring exclusively UCB brews. Flights are limited to only 4 beers, so it would cost a decent amount to try everything. The Zwickel was outrageously tasty, and I ended up drinking it at a few other venues over the weekend. Obviously this place excels at the traditional German styles, but the American stuff wasn’t bad either. Prices are decent. Overall, a worthy stop. I’d love to come back on a nice day to sit in the biergarten and knock back a few litres of the Zwickel.
A really cool place with a German bierhall feel on the inside and a nice biergarten outside. Bartenders were friendly and helpful on my visit. They had 15 taps available with some bottles to go. Four beer samplers available. I did not sample the food on my visit and prices were good. A really nice brewpub.
Visited during RBSG14 Meet & Greet. Staff was very kind to host us (and put up with us). Cool charming interior, perfectly lit and spaced out. Spacious outdoor beer garden. Impressive, solid list of house beers. I enjoyed my visit and would return.
