Coming here for the first time even though in Kirkwood, MO frequently, this was a fantastic time! I visited the Brewery now labeled the "Kirkwood Station Brewing Company" in the inside of their lobby, w/ GeoffTheAleMan.

Upon walking in, I thought to myself, why didn't I wait til they had a live music night? Obviously this is a music venue in St. Louis and this would have made the experience even better! The entire place was decorated festively for the Halloween season and was cool. On the North side of the lobby, there were pool tables, seating, and where it looked like, the bands play. We came in and sat @ the Bar on the South side of the building with the "V" shaped bar as in the Vans logo. Very easy night at the Brewery and we took advantage of the $1 off happy hour special.

Every brew was served in a Nonic glass (which was fine by me) but wish they had better glassware to accompany each style. No worries on this. Everything else was good.

Our bartender was very honest and helpful with each brew they had on-tap and was great.

I have to say, apart from having their own brews on-tap (8 of them, if I remember right), I could not even believe their bottle selection... It went like this: Select 55, Corona Light, Michelob Ultra, Bud Select, Heineken, & Busch. How could they be promoting these? I would think that if they are going to be promoting good beer (like their own), they would go the Craft Beer Route... Not sure about this judgement call by management. Will give this one an average review because of all of theirs but whew. Disappointing...

Enjoyed both the Steak Tips w/ assorted beans & their Pulled Pork Pizza! Both were great. Suggest anything else on the menu as well.

With happy hour being in session, our food-beer-brewery experience was just as expected. Enjoyed the time here and will be back without a doubt! (1,855 characters)

I visited this brewpub with my family on a Saturday afternoon, just passing through town. Located right off the main road, there was plenty of parking on the street and in a public lot next to the brewery. The place has two large bars and a backroom with a stage, so there is ample space. Typical, slightly industrial brewpub decor. The brewing tanks are easily visible, and there were plenty of TV's with pre-season baseball playing. The service was quick, if disinterested. The beer selection was average, with a mix of lagers (the Marzen was solid) and ales (the IPA and Chai Oatmeal stout were good). They were well made and enjoyable. The food was typical for a pub...nothing extraordinary, and mostly forgettable. Nice local place, and worth a visit. (765 characters)

This place was awesome! The food was great, the service exceptional, and the beer was awesome! This place is similar in idea to Granite City Brewery, but whereas Granite City puts the food first, this place puts the beer front and center. The food was slightly more upscale at Granite City, but the food was still very delicious here. The beer was much better than Granite City and was good enough I would buy a couple of them if they canned or bottled them. The menu has the recommended beer for each food dish too, which is just cool. (538 characters)

I did visit rather abruptly as parking was scarce and the place was packed. Selection was broader than other places, had to do two flights. Food beers to be good but not great. Vibe would probably be generally nice, but it was congested... the food looked good but didn't try any. I would probably recommend this place at a time when parking is more ample. I probably will visit this place again as I might have not gotten all the ambiance of the place. (453 characters)

Dcon was correct.
visited December 27'2012
Their home brew was good, they had about 1/2 of their current craft list. but very sad that all bottles (Miller, Bud-lite, other domestic crap) didn't highlight nor complement their variety. No other craft beers nor even the standard dogfish head or other IPA's
tons of indoor seating. Not real knowledgeable table service on the beer side.
we had the sugar creek lager, brown ale, black rye IPA. Brown ale was 4.5,....at $5 a pint we were easily refreshed after several rounds. (523 characters)
