I had herd so many good things about this place. A large open bar area with a huge window to view the very large brewing area. staff was friendly (i see the same guys from other old bars around at various breweries/bars around town-one of the guys here used to work at The Stable). Beer is so/so from what i gathered. was not as impressed with it as others are. On Baseball nights, this place is packed! An odd location and parking can be a challenge.
Stopped in on a weekday afternoon and it was not too busy. This is a typical brewery in an industrial area, but that gives it its ambiance. Nice selection of beers to choose from, including a few seasonal or limited offerings. The food was also good even though the menu is a bit limited. There is also a nice selection of beers to go in cans and bottles. Well worth a visit.
Large place. This starts the chain of three straight places in two days of getting great service followed by subpar service. First server was friendly and informative, but once he left, everyone else seemed surly and apparently they all suffered from severe eye contact allergies. At one point they brought me the wrong beer and charged me for it anyway even though I pointed it out. Beer quality was okay... some good, some mediocre. Maybe they suffered from my my having just visited from a world class brewery, but, most of the beers seemed uninispired. One or two were pretty good. Pricier than anywhere else I went. This could be a great place, but in general I just felt unwelcome and uncomfortable and I was out of there pretty quickly.
An excellent brewery taproom. Loads of beers on offer, great variety, small pours available. Good value. Very friendly service. A small selection of bottles and cans also available, along with apparel. Definitely worth visiting if you visit St. Louis.
Popular microbrewery/bottle shop just south of downtown St. Louis. They have most of their beers on tap on the first floor, plus a few hard to find ones or seasonals that have not hit the stores yet. Upstairs has free arcade games and skee ball, the same beer taps plus a decent selection of bourbon and whiskey. The food looked good, but we didn’t order any. I have never had a bad time here.
Visited on a Sunday evening pretty close to the 9 o’clock closing time. About 20 seats at the bar, along with a handful of tables and high tops in the narrow room. The brewery is visible behind the bar. Parking out front on the street, there may have been a parking lot around the side of the brewery. Selection is 8 regular 4 Hands and 2 specials (War Hammer and Hatch) along with 2 guests drafts. Food is available through a side window and the menu looked great. Great service, chill mostly younger crowd. I enjoyed the music and the overall vibe.
76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
One of my goto breweries in St. Louis. Nice selection (Although its irritating that the tap list on their website is always out dated!). I love their stout variants. Food is from Bailey’s Fifth Wheel. I’m a big fan of all of the Baileys restaurant, so this is icing on the cake.
Tasting room ambiance rocks, but sometimes it becomes a bro-fest.
