I guess I will be the first. I visited the Stable two nights in a row. The first night was for drinks. The place was packed which kind of shocked me as it is rather new. I ordered a Rogue Imperial Pilsner and my wife got the Ayinger Brau Weiss. Both were spot on served in the same glass. I did notice some other peoples beers seemed to have a lot of head on them. My waitress was friendly and quick. Two ladies left a table, pushed their drinks towards the middle and walked away. No one was at the table so we sat down, and our waitress took the 3/4 empty beer glasses away. A few minutes later, the waitress for the two women comes back and explains that the table is saved. I am assuming they went to the bathroom together? She kind of asked us to move which we found annoying. When a place is that busy, you don't get to save our table because you need to pee together. 2nd beer was a Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout. Smooth as could be!

The 2nd night we decided to try the food. The first night we kept seeing pizza and it looked amazing every time. So we ordered a cheese pizza, along with a Bells two hearted ale. It so happens I had the same waitress that had asked us to leave a table the night before so I was like, "great". However she won me over when she pulled out a beer list she made at home and printed off to hand out to customers. I thought that was rather clever and showed me she cared. The pizza was like 2 steps below a average frozen pizza. Not impressed. The beer, amazing. I followed up my Bell's with an O'Fallon 5 day IPA. I kind of wish I had drank this one first as it is more mild than the Bell's. Love it though!

Overall, the beer selection is mind blowing. It has to be the best in St Louis. It is also rotating so who knows what is next. I do wish they would update their site on a regular basis because I would hate to drive 30 minutes to find out the beer selection is meh. I know the place is new so I won't hold the food against them. I would like to possibly see more veggie items. There were numerous people walking around practicing quality assurance through and through. The owner was also there both nights. The atmosphere is great and the decor is some of the best I have ever seen. I cannot wait to try their own brewed beers in the future. Overall, probably my favorite place in St Louis at the time. And kudos for having Setanta Sports channel!

Located across the highway from ABINBEV and down the street from Gus' Pretzels. This brewery is located in the old Lemp Brewing complex.

There were about a have a dozen brews from Amalgamated Brewing Co on tap. Non of them off the rails good-we tried the Scotch Ale and the one off beer with name. Both were OK. What sets this place apart from others is the guest taps which inlcude other MO breweries, Bells, Founders, etc.

Service was good and we didn't try the food.

We would come back to check this place out again.

I've gone to The Stable on a few occasions, but wanted to write up a review after my most recent visit.

The Stable is located in the old Lemp Brewery carriage house. Lot's of fascinating history in the surrounding area, and also inside The Stable itself. It's pretty cool to imagine what this place was like 100 years ago.

Upon entering, you walk past their distillery room on the right, and then the copper brew kettles beckon through the window to the left of the main bar. The main room is decorated with antiques, and one is immediately drawn to the multiple tap handles on the draught towers on the front and back of the bar.

A glance at the menu reveals many top-notch regional craft and import brews. Lagunitas, Founders, Bell's, Bear Republic... Peche Mortel, 1809 Berliner Weisse, Samiclaus... Always curious, I took a peek through the glass doors of the beer cooler to find 4 bottles of Abacus!!! (The $20 price tag was ~$6 steeper than I'd seen elsewhere, although one would have a hard time finding this beer sold at any price around St. Louis at this point...) After ordering 3 glasses of beer, I bought a bottle of Abacus, and headed next door to a wedding reception.

While I didn't try any on this visit, The Stable (Amalgamated Brewing Co.) also offers multiple selections of their own brews. I recommend trying their unique "Zoigl", which I've enjoyed several times, and haven't found anywhere else.

Highly recommended!!!

What a neat and funky place situated across the street from the now-dysfunct Lemp Brewery (now a business park). Old brick building with a large garage space to the left full of rustic tables, leather couches, televisions, tin tubs for beer parties. Inside the brewpub, there is a massive size bar mirror area with a ton of high quality beers on tap and bottles. There is a large chaulk board that lists all the beer offerings situated under a painting of the Mona Lisa. Really cool. There are see through glasses of the brew VATs and fermenting tanks along with nice rows of growlers. This place receives high marks from me on the beer selections, not so much for the food as it was just subpar - though their menu tries to be different by offering stuff like french onion dip for chips, bacon on almost everything they offered, used flat bread for their pizza - you get the idea. Service was really good. Nice, comfortable, laidback, cool, and beer-centric spot. Thumbs up!

Located in an incredible building at Cherokee and Lemp across from the old Lemp Brewery, this must have been the actual stable building for the brewery. The main room and all others have a lot of historical detail. High, decorative ceiling, lots of wood, perfect light- an awesome atmosphere. The bar isn’t huge and sits in a corner, flanked by the main brewing room and distilling room. A large covered patio is at the very corner of the building. The server we had was really friendly, and the bartenders seemed cool too. Great selection of taps. Decent amount of bottles, too. Craft brewers all over the country represented, in addition to the in-house brewer, Amalgamated. Food is solid but changes a lot. Nice feature is the "Plate of Food" - you order it, they bring out whatever they want to throw together for a pretty low price. My buddy orders this every time and hasn’t been let down yet. A must-visit.

We have been to the Stable many times for both lunch and dinner. Very cool atmosphere with the brewery on site of the converted stable building for the old Lemp brewery.

Great rotating selection of tap selections each time we have come. Also, a very solid bottle selection of many good craft and import selections.

I love the fact that they regularly have beer events. We attended the Hopslam on cask event and thoroughly enjoyed it. Another great feature is that you can make reservations on line.

The service has always been good and the food is decent. Another super craft beer stop in STL.

For starters, this place rocked! Located right next to the Lemp and Anheuser Busch breweries in Benton Park, its a great place to stop in after a brewery tour. I came here for the Founders Beer Dinner and was impressed by the moment I walked thru the doors.

There are "stable maids" that welcome you from the entrance of the place (which looks like a dungeon by the way) and there are 2 pool tables with a bar as well. Then the next room has two showcase brewery rooms where you can check out their process and set up. Very nice and ghostly? I think the place itself is awesome.

Service was incredible with Steve, Julie , and Clinton taking care of us all night. Very friendly, know their beers, and can entertain.

Selection you ask? Kicks ass! The stable also brews their own beer. They have 32 taps (8 of them occupied by their own brews) and a great selection of bottles!

The Food was great for the Beer Dinner (4 course meal) but their food menu wasn't available for us that night. Will be coming back again!

Overall, their prices are a bit pricey but then is eliminated and forgotten by their good service, selection, and how they treat their customers.
A+ for this place!

I visited this brewpub/beer-bar for the first time last weekend on a brewery tour weekend with my pops. My father is just getting into craft beer and lives in the metro-STL area so we made a day out of it.

The atmosphere, during the day, is laid back and friendly. All of their staff were informed (both of the food and the beer) and helpful. Our waiter made suggestions for various food pairings and talked casually with me about various beers they had on tap (which included one of my favorites, Modus Hoperandi). The building itself is in an old stable owned by the former Lemp Brewing Company and is right down the road from the Budweiser plant. Lots of wood furniture and pillars make this brewpub seem much like an old neighborhood bar.

All of the beer was great and I'd say the place is very clean and maintains all of the equipment well.

Service was outrageously fantastic for a brewpub and, even though they don't give tours, we were able to talk to their brewmaster and check out everything in the back. He showed us the brewing room, all of their fermenters and the aging area for a couple of special brews they are concocting.

Selection was great for an STL bar. Hundreds of beers to be had with plenty (25+) on tap, including their own beers. Their own beers were more of the crossover styling of a particular style but with other choices and the low/reasonable price of those other choices, it all evens out.

If you're in STL for a day, check it out!

I have been here many times, although, less and less lately. because there are other non-smoking choices. The beer selection is very good, the Amalgamated beer ( house ) is fantastic. The food has been very good also. Great pizzas, sandwiches, and salads. Also, great service.

The only thing that affects the atmosphere is the smoking at the bar. Might want to think about getting into to the 21st century, along with the likes of Schlafly, Six Row, and other local breweries, and keep the smoking outside. Nothing is a irritating as trying to enjoy a good beer, and having some moron blow smoke in your face, because he wants to keep it away from their group.

This is an awesome beer establishment. They truly support the cause of great beer they brew their own beers which were excellent as well as carrying a variety of only quality craft brews. All the staff was super. Especially, Steve our bar tender and our waitress were on point too. I feel bad about forgetting her name but I spent a lot of time at the bar. Steve knew his stuff and had an insight to everything in stock. I tried everything and was a bit intoxicated when I left. (It is not fair to rate something if you can't read your own notes.)That's why I won't be adding a whole lot of reviews from this place. I have mixed feelings on them rotating what's on tap. I like the amount of variety it adds but if you find something you like you might not get it again. I also liked most of their spirits except the gin. The atmosphere was alright it was just a bit dark for me. All in all a great place I would recommend to anyone who loves beer. I can't wait to go back. I had the Italian sub it was messy but tasted great.

My son and I came to the Stables around 1:00 p.m. on a Sunday and waited five to ten minutes to be seated. No one was there to greet or seat us. Then we waited for someone to take our drink order. The place wasn't busy. We didn't get beer. The sandwiches were not very good -- we both got an Italian sandwich that had too much sauce. When we stopped eating and put our napkins on the table, it took several minutes before the waitress came over to ask if we were ready for our check. I don't know if someone called in sick or if there were other problems, but this was definitely substandard service. Nice building, but I hope their beer is better than their food and service.

I have been living in the StL for 3 years and am disappointed I just found this place.

Its in the stable of the Old Lemp mansion, a very cool spot with a very laid back feel. A good place to sit down converse and eat a 3 hour meal.

The draft selection was excellent. One of the better places I have been to in terms variety and some tasty stand-bys (Two-hearted). Good selection of house-made lagers. The waiter (very knowledgeable and a beer geek hisself) assured us that they were going to start making ales.

Food was excellent and good price. Everyone at the table was happy. It was nice eclectic mix of stuff you don't see everyday. Personal favorite: Basket of Bacon.

Overall, I will frequent this place. Good beer selection, interesting house made brews with food good enough to easily convice my wife to make the trip. And the staff (only one visit) was knowledgeable and attentive.

An old building oozing with history and character. An excellent "guest" tap list and five of their own house beers which happened to all be lagers. I quote the guest because it seemed like their house beers were by a brewing company although all the brewing and distilling equipment is on site.

Except for two Warsteiner taps, all the guest beers were top notch.

I stuck with the house beers and had a hopped lager, helles, and rauchbier. All were very well done.

Everything on the menu looked good and I couldn't decide so I ordered a Plate of Food for $7.99 which puts you at the mercy of the chef and I was not let down.

Stopped by for the sunday beer brunch. The atmosphere is good and rustic looking room with a high ceiling and a couple cool chandeliers. The tap selection was really good. Quite a few beers that I rarely see on tap. I had the New Belgium Hoptober. It was quite good. Others in our party had the Amalgamated Marzen and really enjoyed it. The service was a little lacking. Our server was very slow and made a few mistakes. Granted, we were a large group, but he made little effort to get our orders out in good time. The food was hit or miss. The farmers breakfast that I had was huge and tasty. Others weren't so impressed with their food. Overall, it is worth the stop as a beer stop.

I had a really hard time figuring this place out. The atmosphere was strange - it was bizarrely out of scale, with what appears to be an effort to make an intimate old-time bar in a vast warehouse space. The service veered between friendly and stiff, and the food was peculiarly conceived (the cheese burger grinder was a flat-out failure in my book). The beer list, however, was good. It offers several house brews (technically "Amalgamated Brewing") and they are perfectly serviceable. There were quite a lot of outside beers, including Schlafly, Unibrau, Bells, and Founders. All in all, however, I found the entire experience as mystifying and awkward as the restaurant's weird self-designation as an "Eatzzeria."

Probably the best tap list in the St. Louis area, in my opinion. I had the opportunity to try Bear Republic Racer X here, which is nearly impossible to find anywhere in the country besides at the brewery.

I've sat at the bar and also at a table. Had a better experience at the bar, as the bartender was very nice and we chatted a decent amount. Never had bad service at all.

Great pizza (Mario's special is awesome) and salad. I would say well above your average "bar food" any day of the week. Next time I go, I'm going to try some pasta or something to change it up and see what I think.

My girlfriend enjoyed this place as well, which is a nice bonus if/when I take her. Looking forward to going back soon to hang out on the side with open air, it's getting nice outside.

This had become my favorite place to drink beer in St. Louis. They have 24 taps that are always changing and those are backed up by a wide variety of bottled brew. The courtyard is a great place to relax. If you like pizza (not St Louis style) then you will love this place. Food prices are reasonable, beer prices can be high, especially on the more rare beer, but that is to be expected. All of the staff is very knowledgeable about beer and can find something to match your tastes. They are even starting to brew their own beer and their micro distillery is now up and running.

Located in one of the old buildings of the Lemp brewery complex in St Louis, the Stable is a converted old warehouse that may have once served as the stables for the pre-prohibition Lemp brewery. The Stable's bar is located along the back of a single large room adorned with common antique items from days past, while the bar itself is an antique transported from the local area and rumored to have once belonged to Anheuser-Busch.

Among the 20 taps, I am delighted to find Bear Republic's Racer 5 and Hop Rod Rye. Also on tap were an Oak Aged Imperial Stout from Left Hand, Rogue's Shakespeare Stout & Brutal Bitter, a couple of offerings from Kasteel (Donker & Rouge), Gouden Carolus Hopsinjour, O'Dell's IPA and 5 Pale Ale, Hennepin, the Duchess, New Holland's Mad Hatter & Biere De Mars, the Charleville Hoptimistic, Avery's Maharaja, and Bell's Oberon, Two Hearted & Double Cream Stout. WOW! If that's not enough to have you handing your car keys over to the bartender, they also have a few unique offering in their bottled beer list such as O'Fallon's Bourbon Barrel Aged Smoked Porter and Harviestoun's Ola Dubh 12 & 16 y.o. Old Ales.

The place has a distillery where they are currently making their own rum. The "brew house" is partially visible from the bar. There's a small stage for bands (Fri & Sat), a fireplace, and (my favorite) a small room w/a few old (circa 50's - 70's) working pinball machines. The bartender and staff were friendly, the food was good, service (on a very slow weekday evening) was good and the music was primarily late 90's rock.

This is definitely a place I will return to often, but next time I'm taking a cab.

I've been to the Stable twice now, so I feel like I have a good handle on how the place is.

Beer: The second time we went, they had a menu of their draft selection. Very good info on each beer, including type, brewer, etc. The recent addition of Bear Republic is great for STL. They already have Racer 5 and Hop Rod Rye on tap ($7 a pint though). I'll give a place a 4 alone just for having 2 hearted on draft. The bottle selection is very good too.

Food: Both times we've had the pizza. They have a very unique selection and both pizzas we've ordered (muffaletta and carbonara) were great. One of these pizzas could almost feed 3 with all the toppings on there. They also have sloppy joes that look good.

Other: The service has been good, but we haven't been there when it was busy. Decent sized place with "outdoor seating" which is really just in a room with some very large windows. All kinds of seating: bar tables, regular tables, and lounge chairs. And a pool table to boot.

EDIT - I wanted to edit my review to say that this is the place to go for draft beer in St. Louis. They really have a great rotation of beers, always getting new beers on tap. A must stop for beer nerds visiting the area.

Well, after all this time, I finally made it to The Stable. My wife and I headed there after our Valentine's Day dinner downtown.

The place was crowded at about 9 pm, as expected. However, we were able to score a two-person table by the bar. Beer selection was quite good with about 20-25 taps and 40 or so bottles. The draught selection was well-rounded from some quality Belgians to local fare. I had a Trois Pistoles and Boulevard Single Wide IPA and my wife had a Charleville Triple Wit and Hoptamistic. All had a proper pour and the appropriate glassware appears to be the norm which is great.

Our waitress was quite attentive even with the crowd and checked in on us regularly.

We choose not to try the food as we had just come from dinner, but everyone was eating the pizza. We will definately have to try this on the next trip.

The prices were more than fair with both IPA's at $4.

Overall, this is a great place with great beer and atmosphere. We will definately be back.

Nice new beer bar/restaurant in South City occupying the stables of the old Lemp brewery.

Draft beer seems to be the emphasis, and they are doing a fine job. An eclectic selection ranging from excellent session beers like Reissdorf Koelsch and Left Hand Milk Stout, to big boys like Samiclaus, Southern Tier Unearthly, and Bell's Expedition Stout. Yes, all on tap. Good representation of all of the tasty stuff now available in St. Louis with beers from Anderson Valley, Bear Republic, Schlafly and many others. The best thing about the list is how quickly it turns. Apart from a couple of regulars (one of which seems to be Bell's Two-Hearted), once something is gone, a new and different beer replaces it. The Stable is also an outlet for New Belgium's Lips of Faith series of limited availability draft beers.

There is a bottled list of some note as well, but I didn't spend much time with it given all of the draft goodies available.

Service was excellent from the bar, and fine from our waitress on a busy Friday night. The live music was quite loud and made conversation difficult in the bar area where we were seated - and the music was only an acoustic guitar/violin duo, and then Swing Set, a local swing/jazz group.

The space is quite nice, but there is quite a bit of smoke. Even with the very high ceilings, it pushed well past my personal threshold. As others have mentioned, brewing will be getting underway "soon" and distilling has apparently already begun, though no house made spirits are available yet.

This is the sister location to The Rotten Apple in Grafton, IL, which is the only place in the St. Louis area that may have an even better tap list than The Stable.

Overall, they're off to a great start with the beer list, and I'll just make sure to hit them on lighter nights to minimize the smoke. I'm going to reserve judgment on the food until I've had more opportunities to eat there, but I was not impressed with what I had.

the bartenders at this place really enjoy serving someone who is interested in beer. i didn't have to ask for a sample, i was given one that the guy wanted to let me experience.

the atmosphere is really nice. there are always great bands playing.

i enjoy that the building has high ceilings to help with smoke circulation. they also have a big room attached to the main bar room which is connected to the outside so it has an open-air feel.

excellent beer selection. i had my first celebration on tap at this place at it was easily my gateway beer towards the hops.

Southern Tier Hoppe and UnEarthly, Bear Republic Hop Rod Rye, Anderson Valley IPA, Schlafly APA, Sierra Nevada Celebration, Odells 5 Barrel, and Bell's Two Hearted are some of the beers available on tap. There are 24 handles, and I don't remember the others. There are also bottles, like Hennepin and some Boulevard Smokestack series (plus others).

This place has an excellent selection on tap at this time. I have been to here a few times, but my last visit is when I saw of these heavy hitters on tap.

They will also have several of their own beers on tap soon. What I was told is that they might be adding around 12 more taps after they brew their own beer.

Also, they will have their own distilled spirits on site eventually.

The Stable is located on the SW side of St. Louis on Cherokee, not too far from I-55. I stopped on the way back to the STL airport hoping to find a brewpub but evidently they have yet to finalize their license to brew on premise. There is street parking in all directions.

The sorrounding area has a warehouse district feel and it carries over to The Stable. Definitely an industrial look on the outside, and the inside is open and spacious with high ceilings. They have several ornate chandeliers, mirrors and antiques, and there is wood everywhere. The small brewing room is behind glass toward the rear, as is the bar. The rest of the space is devoted to table seating.

There are around 25 taps with selections such as Charleville, O'Fallon, Bell's, Schlafly etc. The bottle list is fairly robust with selections from Charleville, Rogue, etc. A decent amount of imports as well, particularly from Russia.

Service was good on a weekday lunch. My server doubled as the bartender and filled me in on the brief history of the place and what their plans were for brewing.

Pizza was the recommendation for lunch and it was a good one. They have some unique choices for toppings and I was pleased.

Overall I will plan on making a return trip here when they are able to brew their own beer. Even without that option it is a worthwhile visit.

Went to this place last Tuesday night. It's a pretty neat building, as it's located in the old stables of the Lemp Brewery which has been closed down since around prohibition. It's decor is geared towards that period. They are going to be brewing their own beer, but haven't started yet. Damn government red tape.

It was pretty busy for a Tuesday I suppose. There was one table there with at least 30 people, and another with 12 or 14. We had great attention from our server and from the bartender (we sat near the bar). Our server and the bartender were both well versed in the available beers. This place has one of the best beer menus you can find in St. Louis. I had a Charleville Hoptimistic, which is an IPA made by a winery about an hour south of here. It's pretty good, and it was only $4 a pint. Also I had bottle of Rogue XS Imperial IPA, for $16 (see note below).

As for the food, we ordered the mushrooms stuffed with goat cheese. They tasted awesome, but we were a bit disappointed that there were only 3 small to medium sized shrooms for the $8 price. Then we ordered a pizza with Shrimp, Andouille, Bleu Cheese, Goat cheese, rosemary, mozzarella, bacon, and truffle oil. Holy crap this was a good pizza. It was loaded with toppings. I thought it was a steal for $18.

The ONLY problem I had with the place, is the bottle of Rogue XS Imperial IPA was listed on the menu for $12. When I got my bill, the waiter pointed out to me that I was billed $16. The waiter then ASKED me if I wanted the $4 taken off the bill, or if it was OK the way it was? Huh? He shouldn't have asked, he should have just done it. But by this time, the wife and I had to get back to the babysitter, and I didn't feel I had time for him to mess with the bill. So I shorted him a few bucks on the tip.
