Stopped in for a late lunch on a Saturday after a trip to the Magic House with some friends. Great location in downtown Kirkwood with a ton of seating space. However, it took too long to be seated. It appeared that the staff was focused on the patrons sitting outside on the unseasonably warm day. The beer was good. I had the Alt, American Brown and the Pumpkin Ale. My friend enjoyed the Oatmeal Stout. I took home a growler of the Black Rye IPA and enjoyed it, too. The food was hit and miss. The monster burger was good, but everyone else was unimpressed with their food. The kids menu was good with nice portions and options. Service was a little slow despite the relatively empty restaurant. Prices were fair. This could be a great stop for a beer and burger while in Kirkwood.

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.

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.

Located in downtown Kirkwood next to a very good Middle Eastern Swaarma place.

Visited this place two names and three years ago (new owner, new name, new brewer). Kirkwood is a very $$$ kind of town and the atmosphere here reflects this. A littl eoff putting to see some guys drinking Bud.

The beers have greatly improved and we enjoyed the IPA, Stout, and ESB. They were out of a few brews we would have liked to try, but this means they are selling some intersting beers.

Service was very good and we didn't try the food.
Enjoyed their beer and would like to revisit when we are next in town.

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!
