I went on a Wednesday night, so I don't think I can give it a fair grade on atmosphere. Overall, the decor is nice if not contemporary. There were only a few others in there besides me and there wasn't much conversing between patrons.

I had a couple beers as well as a few tastings of others. I was pretty impressed with everything I tried. The Smoked Pigasus was a pretty solid beer that I guess is smoked at a local BBQ joint.

Service was great. Again, there were very few customers which likely contributed to this, but both the guys working there were extremely friendly and eager to talk beer. They seemed like genuinely good people that cared about the business.

They don't have a ton of beers on tap, but the variety of what they had was impressive. A smoked porter, a cherry saison, rye IPA, imperial red, golden blonde, oatmeal brown... it seemed like they have a choice for whatever you're craving. I found it pretty commendable that they had all these styles and from what I tasted did them all well with a couple having their own extra twist (ie the smoked porter and cherry saison.)

I didn't get a chance to try the food, but from what I understood the food is from another establishment, just served here. The menu was small, but included typical gastro type food.

I found the prices to be extremely reasonable, especially the to-go bombers.

I'll definitely be back here next time I'm in town and think this was a nice addition to the growing craft scene in STL. (1,487 characters)

Honestly my go-to brewery in St. Louis. I love that you can see right in to the brewery behind the bar and that there are always brewers working on something. The food is provided by a third party and there never really seems to be something I want to get from them so I've never eaten there. The service is hit or miss. There are two bartenders that are pretty cool but there are a lot of employees that have a little arrogance and a chip on their shoulder. AMAZING beer though. They make a wide range of imperial stouts and they made a few different saisons this summer that were killer. (589 characters)

Excellent knowledgable super friendly service. The selection could be a bit bigger but I understand it given the overall size of the operation (142 characters)

Nice room. Decent selection that can be sampled via sort of expensive 5oz shorties ($4). Really good saison and gose. Service was indifferent at best. (150 characters)

Easy going vibe, always have at least a dozen of their beers on tap, and tasty food for a good price. I should also mention that in amongst their beer selection they usually have one or two absolute standouts, and a couple of specials.

Always well worth a visit when in St Louis. (280 characters)
