Great little place, best in Springfield by far. Typical cozy taproom with about 8 of their own beers on tap. Most beers were $4-5/pint. No food, but you can bring your own. A definite stop when I am in town.
Arrived shortly after opening on a week day (4 p.m.). All of their flagships available, several seasonals, and 7 tasting room only beers. Most available in several sizes. Clean and orderly tasting room. Outside area available. Enjoyable visit.
Visited early evening on a Wednesday. The tasting room is a bit hard to locate at first, it is around the back of the building - just walk past the chain link fence from the parking lot and should be easy to find. Outside, there is a large grassy area with some picnic tables scattered about. Inside, this is very much a bare bones tasting room tacked onto the end of a production brewery. Nothing wrong with that, actually makes it a pretty relaxed vibe. Beer selection is pretty crazy, featuring three types of beers: Regulars (4), Seasonals (4) and Mother’s others (8). 16 beers is pretty crazy, and the range of selections was fantastic. Website (www.mothersbrewing.com/brewery/tasting-room/) was up to date, which I always appreciate. For the regular and seasonals they do half pint and pint. Service was friendly, and very knowledgeable. Beer is available to go with a selection of 6 packs, 4 packs and bombers. Growlers also offered. Top notch, loved my visit and wish I would have had more time (and a driver).
88 = ★★★★ (best in area, a must for locals and visitors)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
Came here for a few beers after a long day at work. Cool tasting room, large table seating plus u can chill outside too if you want. 4 year round Taps, 1 seasonal, and another 11 whe I. Isige no food, but looks like you can bring your own in. Chill place
When driving to the brewery, I surely thought I was lost when I started to enter a residential area, but, much to my surprise, Mother’s definitely was in a really quiet location. On top of that, the brewery being in a former bakery made the whole place very comfortable and homey, which was only intensified by the yard that the tasting room overlooked. Speaking of the tasting room, this is where the magic happens, for there are some beers here that you can’t get anywhere else alongside the great variety of brews they have available. Do you want a wheat beer followed by a bourbon barrel aged stout? They’ve got you covered. Tours are also offered, and I’m going to have to take advantage of this fact the next time I visit this up-and-coming brewery.
Homey little place. Went to their tasting room and had a Belgian Pale Ale. They have a lot of souvenirs (t-shirts, etc.) on site in addition to beers only available at the room. Tours are offered periodically as well.
I love this little brewery and I am so glad that Springfield, MO finally has a brewery that is worth a darn. This place is about beer. Their regular beers are good but the limited release one are what I wait in line for. I am always impressed by something when I swing by here. I would love for them to open a brew pub but I like the fact that they are establishing themselves in the beer world first.

This was a cool brewery located in an old bread factory. I got there right when they opened at 1 pm on a Saturday, and by the time I tried all their beers, the tasting room was full. They have several tours on Saturday, which I didn’t have a chance to partake in. Cool tasting room, definitely worth checking out if you’re in Springfield.
It’s just a tasting room and they only serve Mother’s beers, but their selection of styles is pretty good. They have a big lawn if you want to sit outside and enjoy your beer. They also offer tours every Sat. always worth the trip.
Mother’s Brewing Company is located in an old bread factory just a couple of blocks from the Springfield Brewpub. They have a "Tasting Room" open to the public to sample the wares so to speak. When i was there they had 4 year round offerings on tap plus couple of seasonal beers and a couple of special or one-off beers to try. If the samples are not quite enough you can purchase a half-pint or pint to evaluate better. If you like they sell growlers, six packs or even build your own if you want. The bartenders are very knowledgeable about their beers. They are currently looking distributing into the Kansas City area. Hope to see them in the St Louis area some day. If you are every in Springfield this is a good place to check out.
