This place is either great or just average depending on your beer karma score. If your really into beer, you'll find it average. If your a novice you'll be impressed. Because they brew their own, tap selection is limited to six though the cask conditioned ones are rarely available. They make a really good pale ale but the rest of the beers are just average (o.k. some of the seasonals can be pretty good). Food and service are always hit and miss. For example two weeks ago I had a Grilled Chicken Salad and they forgot to mix in the dressing. Today, they had just the right amount of dressing in the same salad. If you want to make sure you have a good meal the Bayou Chicken is the safest bet.

Place is always busy on weekends as the upstairs bar has billiards and video games. Sunday nights have a jazz musician. While decent overall, go around the corner to Patton Alley Pub for a better beer experience.

Very nice brewpub in cool historic space. The staff was very friendly, service great, and the food was very good. All the beers were very solid. None were disappointing, but none stood out as spectacular. They are very good at what they are trying to be. it's a nice restaurant, where you'll be served well, have a good meal with a couple of decent pints of quality in house brews.

An OK place to visit when in Springfield. Beers were average and food menu was what you'd expect from a place like this. When we visited, they weren't sourcing locally for any foods or ingredients in the beer.

Not a bad place to visit, but their are several better places to visit first.

Came on a Saturday morning/noon. Lively, noisy & loved the bones of the place. Loads of brick & little beer memorabilia. Seemed a bit of a slice in time of a 90s brewpub. A few TVs around to watch some games

The American Strong Ale (Hop Lobster) & Maibock were pretty good, not great

Friendly & somewhat attentive service

9 beers on tap, a few of them lagers, one chillebeer. They also had a bottled barrel aged imp stout on sale

Food was typical pubgrub, albeit a bit pricey

Food & beer were pricey

I would go again if in the area, but wouldn't be in too big a hurry

Whilst I wasn't disappointed in Springfield Brewing Company, I certainly wouldn't go out of my way to visit. The food and atmosphere were good, but the beer average at best. If you're in the area or passing through I'd stop, but I wouldn't make it a point, especially with so many superior breweries nearby in St. Louis.

Located in downtown Springfield. It is quite large, taking up two floors. There is a lot of chrome and glass but it is not a sterile environment. In the back is the brewing operation, spotless to say the least. The place has a nice character, especially with all of the mugs over the main bar. There were a number of locals which seem to be part of the local mug club. Service was very good and the bartender was very knowledgeable about the beers they serve. They serve about 5-6 year round beers and a couple of seasonal or special brews. The menu has a good selection of pub grub or meals and there are usually daily specials to choose from. Well worth checking out if you are ever in the area.
