Schlafly's second location and the site that allowed them to bottle locally rather than through contract brewers. The quality of their bottled beer has unquestionably improved sine then. For that alone I love this place.

A large, wide open establishment with comfortable seating both at the bar and in the restaraunt. Food varies from phenomenal to good and all the recipes are focused on organic and local ingredients. The beer is good, though lacking the selection of the downtown location. Still there are normall 6-10 differing beers on tap and many of them are good. No crap.

A nice place and much better than some of the other choices (Trailhead, Morgan Street) in St. Louis.

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.
