The food was great, , the service was great, the beer was great My wife who would only have a sip of any beer before the tour now loves stouts and porters. We came for lunch and stayed for the tasting. The only minor drawback was that the same glass was used for all 4 of the tastings. However, the price of the tasting was also...great! (free) This is a "must stop" if you are in the Saint Louis area.

Schlaflys is a cool place with a lot of beers. They have something to cover pretty much every type. I grabbed the sampler before going on the tour. The Hefeweizen was probably my favorite. I was told that they have bluegrass bands play on the patio at night on the weekend but didn't stay for that because we were rushed to get to a Cardinals game.

Place has a unique ambiance situated in an old supermarket. There is a large patio area to enjoy when the weather is nice along with an indoor dining area. The bar is of good size and is equipped with a number of taps. They serve a large number of the regular year round beers and a number of their seasonal or special offerings. I like that as there is always something new to try on every visit. the bartenders are friendly and very knowledgeable about the beers the serve. If interested they do provide tours of the brewery. There is also a gift shop to purchase some logo gear and glasses or build a six-pack to take home. Place is worth checking out.

Stopped by here on Valentines day. Well planned layout here with the bar/taproom seperate from the restaurant area. They have a second large taproom available for groups and rental. The gift shop area has a wide selection of clothing, glasses and misc. Brewery logo items along with bottles to go. The beer is average with a decent selection of styles. Now for the food....Hands down the best pizza crust you will ever have. They use beer in the dough instead of water. They also baste the dough with house made garlic infused olive oil. Simply the best thin crust pizza I have had. I was able to pick up some large bottles of their BBA Imperial stout. Nice place to stop for food and beer when in the area.

Finally made it to the bottleworks to check it out. Usually I go to the taproom, but this one is worth checking out too.
i stopped in for lunch on a sunday and they had quite a few people in there already. It's a really nice building with a great patio and lots of room inside and out for people to hang, drink, eat and socialize.
The food was good, although I've only had one example of it to choose from. The menu was nice and the prices ranged from quite reasonable to fairly pricey entrees, but for the most part it wasn't unreasonable at all. I had the buffalo burger and quite liked it. The beer was great, I had an oatmeal stout and it was so fresh and delicious! There's a nice store with lots of souvenirs, tee shirts, hats, koozies, etc. There's also a large selection of beer to go, and the prices for that are quite reasonable. I got one of the whole foods rye bock 750mL bottles for less than ten bucks, and it was fantastic.
The selection I'm rating as good, even though there really aren't that many choices. However, there's takeout and lots of stuff on tap, and it's all great Schlafly stuff.
I haven't taken the tour yet, but it's free, and I will next time.
There is an employee there who has answered lots of specific questions via email for me, thanks Steve.
I'd like to try this place on a festival or event night. It's a pretty cool place.
ETA: wear closed toed shoes if you want to take the brewery tour, they are required.

I went to Schlafly Bottleworks for a tour and lunch this past weekend and I was impressed.
The service was good and the food was also good. I recommend trying the beer cheese soup and the black bean burger.
The beer selection was good. My friend and I tried a sampler of 6 beers including 5 of their regular beers and a seasonal which was a pumpkin ale. We also were given 4 5 ounce samples at the end of our tour of the brewery. My favorite beer was the dry hopped APA.
The tour was great and also free. If you go here for a tour, as a side note, you have to wear closed-toed shoes as a safety rule. Our tour guide Alex was very knowledgable and provided us with a great tour of the facility. You can get bottles of Schlafly beers to go at the store.
Overall, I really enjoyed by visit to this place and would recommend it as a place to go when in St. Louis.

This is the red headed step child of the Schlafly brew pubs for me. I always dig the beer that is being poured, except for the fact that there is only a cask there once a month. The Taproom has two on at all times.
The vibe isn't as good as the Taproom, but can still be pretty cool when they have the Bluegrass bands playing or an event going on. The shop is a nice feature, tons of Schlafly swag.
The menu is just okay for me. I have had and enjoyed most of what I have had there, but again the Taproom has it beat.
Don't get me wrong, I love this place. If I were to choose though, I would pick the taproom most every time. Definitely a nice change of pace and a must try if you have never been.

I drink and eat at The Bottleworks on an almost weekly basis. Their beer garden is very peaceful and their bar-side section has one heck of a bar. They have a nice selection of beer on tap. For the best beer experience, I would say the best time to visit The Bottleworks is the very start of fall/end of summer, because its not flaming hot outside and so the beer garden is mild. They also have on tap some of their best seasonal beers; Pumpkin Ale, Raspberry Coffee Stout, Belgian Singel, Blueberry Cider, and Oktoberfest. Their seasonal brews are incredibly creative, but their Dry Hopped APA, Oatmeal Stout, Coffee Stout, and Kölsch are solid beers that are great year-rounders.
They have a small menu. It is not large by any means, but anyone knows who has been around the block a few times that the best pubhouse restaurants have smaller menus, because they specialize and make those items on their menu with the best ingredients that they possibly can get with incredibly creative recipes. Schlafly has very fresh food that complements their beer incredibly well. Their desserts are fantastic. I am a vegetarian. They make these meatless "chicken" enchiladas that I suspect even a meat eater would find incredible.
They also have their "Imperial Pint Club" where you get special benefits such as more beer for the same price, invitations to exclusive events/parties etc. I will get my membership soon.
Good food, good drink, at a price that . Bottleworks is a place committed to being a true local beer experience that not only facilitates community but they run their business conscientiously and responsibly.
Totally recommended if you are in The Lou. There is nothing like a mild evening in their beer garden.

The is the 2nd location for Schalfy, the Tap Room downtown being the original. Atmosphere is not quite as neat, as this was once a large grocery store, but it is larger and has a very different food menu, which I like better. Brewery tours are great here. Calzones are incredible here, and many local ingredients are used and noted on a chalkboard inside. Beers are similiar to that at the Tap Room, with regular and seasonal releases, and occasional specials only found here. If you're in the county, then hit this location up.

I’ve heard that endless red tape caused them to ditch plans to build in the City and go with Maplewood instead. Unfortunate, but it’s become the anchor to the Maplewood strip along Manchester. Very good food, and they’ve focused on using local farms and quality ingredients. Good atmosphere, with a nice big bar area and patio. If they salvaged any of the old Shop ’N Save store, you can’t really tell. About the same amount of selections as the Tap Room, but each will have some different seasonals and specials in addition to the standards. Each has different events, too. I love coming here.
