Just visited this new brewpub last night. I think it has only been open for three weeks, so they are still working on their long-term vision. Their is very limited parking in front, but more behind the building and on the streets. The brewing equipment dominates the west half of the building. The equipment can be viewed through large glass windows in the shape of garage doors. The tasting room seats roughly fifty people with plenty of standing room. Seating is comprised of old printers tables that adds character, in my opinion. Walk-around bar with limited seating. All orders are made at the bar. The service is very friendly and quick.
They had six beers on tap. They were split into to sections; half were part of the revolution series and half the reverence series. The reverence is their celebration of brewing heritage and the revolution is their take on the new craft brewing scene brews. I had two beers from the reverence and one from the revolution series. They were each very good and served in appropriate glassware. $4.50 per beer, which is about average for brewpub prices in the St. Louis area. The menu is limited for the time being; pretzel roll, chips, and sausage. The three choices are all made by small local companies. Website states they open at 5 pm on Saturday, but we got there at 4:45 pm and they appear to have been open for a while, at that point. By 6:00 pm the place was packed - awesome sign for a new brewpub! Great new place that will only get better.
