Stopped in for a sampler. Was very impressed with the beer, beyond my expections for a place I heard so little about. Service was also impressive, as I even was offered a free sample of a local whiskey I wished I would have written down. Selection was also good and it was obvious that this was a go to place for beer geeks in St. Louis. The building seemed to be new, very clean and other patrons also were very enjoyable in conversation. If I'm back in the area, this place is a must. I did not try any food, for afterward I wanted to make the trek to Iron Barley's. My only mark is it seemed near some sketchy neighborhoods, although that might just be me.

Perennial is a must if you're in the St. Louis area. The beer selection is fantastic and the service is top notch. They always have something amazing coming out of the kitchen and the brewery. If you can make it down to a release you should! The people are fantastic and so is the bottle sharing.

Located in the bottom floor of some loft apartments in an out of the way part of town, the taproom is pleasant, but surprisingly bland. It is tasteful, but in a way that is reminiscent of a page from a restoration hardware catalogue, my wife said it looked like Martha Stewart was the interior decorator. The service was good, we just ordered at the bar and didn't try any food. The beer, is excellent, honestly my favorite stop in St Louis, even over Side Project. Selection was quite good, with a good representative variety of their beer on tap. Overall it is someplace you absolutely must visit if you have the chance.

A nice spot to visit.

Even on a Friday afternoon close to 5 the place was mellow and people were just hanging out. The selection on tap was pretty much what you'll find in stores, which is always a bit disappointing, but at least everything they offer is good and for me, not easily obtainable in New Mexico.

There were bottles available for on-site consumption and if I'd stayed around that would have been the move.

Service was friendly and they gave good advice on how to get to a Cards game.

Vibe is meh. Wide open space feels emptyish. Few board games, darts, lame sofa, no TVs in one of the country's best sports towns, nice patio... that's it.
Quality is great. Never a bad beer here, but sometimes a bit one-dimensional, messy on busy days, awkward water service.
I'd like better service. Different staff members provide different levels of service and attitude. Slow on a good day.
Selection is weak. Rarely a hoppy offering. Rarely a big-ticket beer. Weekly test batches are cool, but I'd like to see more marquee offerings more often.
Food is great, selection is small.

Great patio space outside. Board games and metal dartboard inside. Good selection of tasty beers with the option to buy bombers. We had the pretzels with the awesome beer mustard.
