I've been to this place a couple of times before I decided to review it because every time I had a different experience.

The place has an interesting set-up and I guess that goes back to the fact that it used to be a supermarket. Once you walk in there is the bar area right in front with some nice eclectic decor about, what else, but beer.

The bar is long and narrow and its sandwiched by a nice open dining room and on the other side by a nice patio-like beer garden.

The quality of the Schlafly beer has been proven to be one of the best in St. Louis and they had about 11 beers when I attended. I tried the Saison which was nice and spicy and everyone at my table (non-BA types) loved it. I then followed it with a Dry Hopped APA off which I took a growler home because its their hoppiest beer right now (Sep 2010).

There food is always delicious. I had the chicken enchiladas which were yummy and spicy. Bottleworks is a cool place plus its jst steps from my house.

Visited on a Monday around lunch time. Not too crowded. It was a beautiful day so the insider part of the restaurant where I sat was mostly deserted.

V – This place is a big open bright place that is more German beer hall than craft beer hideaway. Lots of tables. Probably a great place to bring a big party, but not the type of place a rate highly or consider as a place where I go to have an introspective geeky beer discussion. 3.75

Q – The Schlafly brewery is on the other side of the wall - can’t get any fresher than that. 4.5

Ser – It was slow, but I received quick attention from the server as well as the manager later on after my meal. I ordered a beer with experimental hops and I liked being given the opportunity to write down my impressions for the brewers. 4.25

Sel – Just Schlafly beers. No guest taps. Disappointed that there was not an opportunity to drink some of their more unique beers that are only sold in a large bottle format. 4

Food – The rainbow trout was good, but the boiled and then deep fried potatoes that came with it stole the show. 4

This location has a decent dining area, with a merchandise area that includes all the brewery smells. The beer selction was ample, with about 12-16 varieties on tap and a vibrant, if limited, food selection.

Excellent selection of beers, though flights were limited and one was hard-pressed to obtain samples of anything not already included in the fixed-selection flights of six in the restaurant and four at the end of the tour. Still, they had an excellent Scotch Ale available on tap that is not available in bottles and was not offered at the Tap Room (at least not at the time this review was written). The tap list for both the Bottleworks and the Taproom is available online at Schlalfy.com, and I would recommend checking out the selections there before venturing to either location. The food was good, though not traditional pub fare. For instance, bison was a common fixture on the menu (i.e., spaghetti with bison meatballs) though I ultimately opted for a turkey burger with a brie spread and cranberry chutney (which was AMAZING, by the way). We sat on the patio and there were a large number of families with small children; particularly impactful on our experience was the table of small children sitting directly behind us who continued to shriek and wander around our table throughout the entirety of our stay. Perhaps this would not have been the case if we had sat indoors by the bar, but we wanted to enjoy the nice weather and thus it detracted from our experience somewhat. Nonetheless, highly recommended.

Unfortunately the few times that I've been there, the service was a little slow, but aside from that it was good.

This is a really cool facility and a great location in Maplewood, but not a great taproom. A good place to tour if you are in STL, but don't expect much from the taproom. The beers on tap were mostly just the standard Schlafly brews that you can find in 6 packs anywhere in MO. The vibe was pretty poor. We planned to be there all night, but had to leave after an hour because the music was so poor. It's a good spot for an older crowd that enjoys the blues and decent beer.
