This place is awesome. When I travel with my in-laws I always have a dilemma. They want fabulous, high class food in a classy atmosphere and I want awesome beer. This is a pairing that rarely works. It does at the Happy Gnome. My father in law said the charcuterrie plate was the best he ever had. He loved the wines and the meal. The beer choices had my head spinning. So many awesome brews that I can't get in Missouri. The staff was knowledgeable and helpful with my questions. If there is any negative, it's that it was a little loud. I didn't mind but the in-laws are getting up there in age and the background noise bothers them. Otherwise, it's one of the best beer places in the country.

I like this place-urban, cozy, personal, and full of people who love craft beer. The service is way above average, the bartenders are knowledgeable and treat you like you belong there. I love the appetizers with perhaps
two draught pours, sometimes the same, sometimes different. My only complaint, if there is one, that there's nowhere to hang a coat when you have one.
