An older looking beer bar/restaurant with a British pub type feel and a private room upstairs where I spent my time. Service was solid and all were friendly. A good number of beers available on tap. Food was solid. A pretty cool pub, but a few other places in the area I would hit first.
Visited for the RBSG 2014 beer dinner. Nice bar area on the main floor with a smaller bar and dining room upstairs. Didn’t pay attention to their regular draft list but there was a solid line up of St. Louis beers paired for the dinner. Food was great. Good service, missed a glass of the last beer in the dinner while using the restroom and the staff was quick to get my pour. Would be interested in returning to check out their regular draft and food menus.
Cool and quaint. Lots of wood. Excellent selection of food and beer... especially tonight (RBSGSTL2014). Perennial and other brewers from the St. Louis metro. Terrific experience. Nice selection of beer overall. Great food!!!
I just love this place. Exactly how a pub should look and feel. Great space, great food, friendly and knowledgeable servers...oh yeah, and good diverse beer too. Not the most taps in town, of course, but what they have is very good. And they’re one of the only places in town that almost always has a cask of real ale. Check it out.
Well worth the trip to the Central West End. A very neat pub with a lot of history. The bartender, Brandon, was very friendly and helpful with our beer selection. There were about a dozen taps, and several bottled beers to choose from. The chips were very good as well. Would visit again when we are in the area.
Dressel’s is located on Euclid in the Central West End, a great neighborhood to walk around. The bar is in a really nice, wood-and-brick, warm, homey room, and there is a side main dining room. The service is friendly, though not particularly beer-knowledgeable from what I could tell. The beer selection is good, with about a dozen taps and a few dozen bottles. They had one cask, O’Fallon 5-Day IPA, when I visited. Other taps included 3 New Belgium (including one Lips of Faith), Bell’s Expedition Stout, Left Hand, Boulevard, Odell, Guinness, Strongbow, and a few other local and regional things. The food was pretty good, albeit nothing too special. This was a nice place to stop in on a cold day, warm up, have a couple beers and food.

Dressel’s is worth a visit if only for the real cask ale that is unpastuerized, not under any pressure, and served at cellar temerature, silmilar to pubs in the UK. Ben, the latest of the Dressel family to run the place, was raised in Wales, and returned after college in the states to run a student exchange program at the University of Wales. Ben knows beer, and he keeps expanding a tight selection of Euro and Yank craft beers. The kitchen knows how to produce very authentic Welsh gastropub food as well. The Pub Above on the second floor is as close to a British pub in appearance as I’ve seen in the US.
If you’re visiting St. Louis and love beer, you need to put Dressels on your list. Unibroue Maudite. Left Hand Milk Stout. O’Fallon 5 day IPA. New Belguim, Boulevard, Fuller’s stock selections and seasonal. A few other beers also. A great place in a great area of St. Louis, the Central West End. Lewelyns is around the corner, another great place.
