Located far from downtown. So there is a lot of parking. All rather modern. There’s a museum section. Like 5% of the AB brewery tour display - but it covers old St Louis brands. Good. Service in the restaurant area was very good. Appetizers (some at least) were large enough to serve as meals. Some ales were indeed surprisingly good (e.g. pumpkin ale). Great place for food and beer.
Massive place, with a large bottle and merch shop area that you walk through to get to the tasting room. There was a live band playing when I visited, so it was loud, crowded and hard to order. Flights available of 5 beers for $11, pretty pricey for St Louis. Beer quality is solid, but nothing overly ambitious was on tap. Worth a stop when in town.
The production facility with a large merch store and taproom built in. Apparently it used to be an old grocery store. Tour guide was a killer for me, knew a good amount, but was very sure of himself when spouting incorrect information. Tried to correct him politely and he just looked at me like I was the antichrist. Beer was decent at best, don't think I'm going back, even with a free tour and tasting.
Completely different from their downtown location, even though both are good. Great looking huge place with a look into where the beer is made. The bar/tasting room and dining area are completely separated. Service is incredibly attentive, they have a few Schlafly beers that you can't get in stores. They also do infusions which I like. Value is not as good as some other places. Very nice place, a must try as is the entire town of Maplewood.
Wow, this place is big. I love how all the brewing equipment is visible through the big glass windows. 15 taps running, mostly the same as the other location. I did not try the tours, but they look awesome.
Stopped in for the RBSG 2014 Saturday Brunch. There’s really not much to describe that hasn’t already been hit on by other visitors, RBSG attendees and locals. It’s a nice facility. The staff was beyond accommodating and the selection of food offered on the special RBSG brunch menu was stellar. It was also really cool for Schlafly’s to allow other breweries from the outskirts of St. Louis (who were not included on the bus tour) to come, talk about and pour their beer. I can’t really speak to the selection of Schlafly brews available, because I didn’t order any... well, maybe one. Can’t remember.
Have visited Bottleworks several times over the past 3-4 years. Nice, smoke-free atmosphere with eclectic clientele of various ages. Beer is fresh of course and the food is well above average. Seems to always have a good crowd. Have been a few times when a band has played on weekends, and its nice because you can enjoy the music and a conversation at the same time. Overall a really nice brewpub!
Came here for brunch as part of RateBeer Summer Gathering 2014. Cool place as there are a number of different areas including a cool private room in the back. A cool bar area in the front. Lots of gear and beer for sale, too. Friendly wait staff at the aforementioned bar area. They have a lot of beers available here including all the standards as well as a good selection of seasonals and specials. Good food, too.
A nice brewpub at the brewing facility. A large out door seating area as well as multiple large seating areas indoor. Servers were friendly during our visit. I believe there were 8 taps available as well as a number of bottles to go along with other merchandise. I had some very good biscuits and gravy and the prices were nice. A cool place.
