Stopped in early on a weekday, so it was pretty quite. The place has a very ’commercial’ vibe about it, but it’s no big deal. Plenty of merchandise for sale, if you know what I mean. The guy behind the bar was friendly and very enthusiastic, but to be honest I prefer more standoffish bartenders who leave you in peace. They have a good assortment of beers on offer, and the quality level is very decent. Pretty good value, I seem to recall. Easy location, fairly central. Worth visiting if you are in STL.
The Taproom was visited on our trip back to Virginia. The location is excellent for the interstate traveler. It has ample parking. The service from Joel was outstanding. The rueben sandwich was very good. They do require a 5 beer flight. This is a sure stop in St Louis.
Visited for dinner later on a Sunday evening. Located near downtown in a big, beautifully restored old world brick building. The interior is sizeable, beautiful restored wood and brick. There is a bar area straight ahead as you enter, as well as another bar and dining room to the right. Selection was 14 house beers as well as 2 casks. Mostly standard lineup, though a couple of seasonal and special beers. A small pilot brewery system is visible through the window at the end of the room. Bartender very engaging and personable. Food is standard pub menu (a few traditional British offerings) plus a nice array of mussels. Great vibe to the place, I enjoyed this visit more than the Bottleworks location.
76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
Classic brewpub in downtown St Louis. Pretty quiet when I got there but I got there near close. The place is quite large, 2 full bars and a merch/bottle store. Service was quite homey and friendly and the beers were good. Prices were also quite resonable. Didn’t try the food but they had some good looking options. I’d revisit again when in Slu.
I’ve been to this taproom a couple of times, most recently by myself while playing a show in St Louis. Overall this is a nice place to visit, nothing extraordinary about it, nice food, good beers on tap, good sampler options, and nice rarish beers to take home if you choose to do so. Would go back again for sure, one of the best beer places in St Louis.
A solid spot in StL with good food and a nice tap list. The ambiance is good, which is better than I can say for the service; our server was cold and disinterested until he dropped off the bill. Service aside, the place is worth a stop if you’re in the area.
Final stop of the evening. This place is huge and doing a good business even on a Monday night. Because its so large, lots of cars in the lot still doesnt look like a lot of people inside. I hit the back bar, which was pretty cool, with steel settings of the regular beers set into the bar surface. The bartender was friendly and knowledgeable about his beers, which seems to be a theme here. They do indeed have flights, either a pre-set thing or choose your own six for $10. I enjoyed most of the beers I tried. Did not try the food. Another solid stop.
