Ok first I have to say the teal bar seats pop, super fun in this modern industrial space, weirdly shaped though. The selection was surprisingly meh, mostly stuff that is on the shelves year round, and the bottle list was mostly to go only and the things that weren't were very highly priced. Peruvian street food is a bold choice, but didn't get to try anything so I can't speak to it. The service was friendly once you got them away from their phones and drinking with their buddies, when asked about to go bottles they were completely clueless to what the beers available were, woof! But once we got beers they were good. Was so excited to finally visit, let down

Very nice outdoor area and decent food. The inside is a lot bigger since the expansion and there is even an arcade game room now.

My wife and I visited this brewery after a nice dinner at a nearby burger joint. Unfortunately, the tasting room was being remolded when we visited, but it was a beautiful summer evening, and they had a courtyard with plenty of picnic tables and walk-up beer service.. Easy to find, off-street parking, and incredibly interesting and creative beer. We'll have to return when the tasting room work is complete.

When we arrived at the tail end of our road trip, the pandemic had Perennial still operating out of what must have been the old loading bay doors for the Coke plant, with outdoor seating only. This was one of the only places we stopped to still have tighter policies in this regard, but it didn't detract from our visit. It was a beautiful day, with plenty of empty picnic tables for us to choose from, despite being fairly busy, each with their own umbrella we could pop open and swing around to get our own personal shade from the sun.

They were offering a fairly sizeable list of on-site bottles and cans on top of their otherwise small draft list. I found myself enjoying the on-site bottles thoroughly, while the drafts were solid too. I spent most of my time here in awe at just how delicious I found some of their saisons to be, all of which I'd not previously had access to, knocking off one after another upon each new discovery. The best part was not having to kill off a whole bottle on your own if they were larger format--they were offering half or partial pours, as noted on the menu, and re-capping them to be stored back in the fridge.

Service wasn't just friendly and helpful regarding the on-site offerings, but they also spoke with my old lady for a good chunk of time, offering recommendations for local bars and restaurants. I couldn't ask for more, except what looked like a pretty bogus and simplistic food menu also turned out to be surprisingly good quality as well, so I was happy all around. We didn't even need to go out to eat after this, instead we just crashed at our hotel for the night--a much needed rest after a long third leg of a road trip.

When it comes to St. Louis it doesn’t get better than the folks at perennial artisan, chandler, and now Lockwood. The vibes are always fun and worth the drive from Chicago each time they release something fun!

Definitely off the beaten path, I was excited to visit Perennial. A huge building with a fairly small taproom, it honestly didn't need much more. Good variety of beer, fresh coffee, merch, and food, giving guests pretty much anything they could want. Tap / bottle list was varied and the quality was excellent. Keith, one of the brewers gave an uber-informative and entertaining tour of the whole facility and really made the experience more special. Loved meeting the team over there and will definitely be back next time I find myself in the area.

First time stop at PAA. Sunday afternoon after a long day/ multiple flights. Tasting room was big, bright and cheerful. Great tunes (90’s Pop Rocks) we’re loud but not a problem. Just set a spot on Upbeat fun tone.
Guys behind bar very helpful; really good info ( and pride in product) from Keith.
Beer selection was very good. Saisons, lagers; IPAs and 3 big Stouts. Brand new foeder aged ale. Awesome. Only had a kale salad but it was great and everything else I saw at bar was good looking and being polished off quickly by those at the bar.
Nothing presumptive or haughty. Just good people and a good place. And damn good beer.

I was in St Louis last week and made it a point to visit Perennial while I was there. It was great -- the taproom is simple and unassuming, but the service is good and the beer is outstanding. They had 11 taps on when I visited, and I was able to try several of them and they were all quite good. I didn't really get to explore the food menu much, but I had the cheese curds and they really went well with the beer.

Cool spot in a cool neighborhood. I was disappointed with what they were pouring when I was there though. They should try to have some of their highest rated beers available year round.

love the vibe at perennial. the bar layout is so cool, the staff is always friendly and pleasant and the beer selection typically covers IPAs, lagers, saisons and imperial stouts (or barleywines). when the weather is nicer, the outdoor area is spacious and fun. the food menu, although limited, is adventurous and usually quite good. been to a lot of releases here and it’s always a good time with people looking to share beers. about the only negative is it’s not in the greatest part of town.

Visited for a few beers on a Saturday afternoon. The space is pretty vanilla, there is a bar along the wall will some tables as well. A bit of outdoor seating in front as well. They have a draft list of about 10 beers available in small and normal pour sizes. List is very heavy on saison variations. They also often bottles for in house drinking (pricey), and also a few wines and whiskey. Service was fine. They have a small food menu but we didn't eat.

I was able to try abraxas at the bar so the trip was worth it. Staff were very pleasant and allowed as many samples as requested and we very talkative. Selection was what they brew with abraxas in short supply and none to go
