St. Louis Brewpubs
I found a thread on this, but it's 4 years old, so I figure the landscape has probably changed somewhat since then.
I'll be visiting St. Louis in a few weeks, and I was wondering what brewpubs there are worth visting. I've been to the Schlafly Tap Room and Square One, and enjoyed them both. Is the Schlafly Bottleworks different enough to go? Are places like Highlands, Buffalo, The Stable, etc., good?
Schlafly Tap Room
2100 Locust St, Saint Louis, MO 63103
Square One Brewery
1727 Park Avenue, St. Louis, MO 63104
1821 Cherokee St, Saint Louis, MO 63118
Bottleworks is indeed quite different, and not just because they lack a deep-fryer. Personally unimpressed with The Stable, but the HIghlands is pretty okay, or was some months back.
Several new places:
Urban Chestnut (Midtown), limited food menu
Six Row (Midtown), serves food
O'Fallon Brewery (no brewpub of which I am aware, and been around for a while)
Ferguson Brewing Co. , in Ferguson, off I-70 on Florissant, has solid food choices
Exit 6 (in Cottleville, not sure it's open yet)
And older: Morgan St., in Laclede's Landing, sizeable food menu
Quite a lot of choices really, I may even be missing one.
We love, love Urban Chestnut. Each beer is served in its particular glass or stein. Food is definitely limited but we've enjoyed the sausage/cheese platters they do offer. We describe the place as sort of a "Starbucks" for beer drinkers - with that just hang out, enjoy your drink attitude. It's good we don't live too terribly close, my husband would be a regular.
I remember liking Six Row well enough but don't remember what we've eaten there. Husband liked the cask beer that they had tapped. Seems to me, they rotate their beers a bit more and have more single cask, limited offerings than other breweries.
Ferguson definitely is a decent food option choice and they have a wide beer selection.
I didn't know there was a new one opening in Cottleville - that will my husband way too happy.
