What a class act!

My wife and I went on vacation here recently and those plans included St. Louis as part of our "trek across the Midwest." Needless to say, this was the place I was looking more forward to than any place in all of St. Louis. Our hotel wasn't that close, but we walked it anyway and don't regret it! However, if your plans include the City Museum like ours did, you've got it made!

Atmosphere: Very rustic feel which I dig. It's pretty large as far as craft beer places come. Once you walk into the foyer, you can either head right to the bar or wait for a table which includes the left side also. We chose the former.

Quality and Service: First of all, I was really surprised to learn that a large percentage of the employees here have been here for many years. That speaks volumes to me as to how the employees are cared for. The bartender we had here was probably the best I've had in my entire life. Seriously, he was very open in terms of recommending other craft breweries in the area to hit during our stay. He was a craft beer thoroughbred!

Selection: All the yummy flagships and standard line-up entries were here, including an awesome Dortmunder and cask-conditioned, Galaxy-hopped DIPA. Excellent and very diverse.

Value: Sigh... Here goes: I talked to the bartender for at least and hour or longer. At one point, the subject shifted to job professions and I told him I was military. Apparently he made a mental note of that. After my wife and I ordered a couple of samplers, several beers, and an order of gourmet pretzels, we were ready to go and he rang us up:
Bartender: That'll be $13.
Me: What?
Bartender: Mr. Schlafly feels very strongly about supporting the military and he is best friends with XX Commander of XX military base and you folks are our heros.
Me:...

To come full circle: Schlafly is a class act and amazing operation and will always hold a place in my heart and fridge!

Lots of fun, tasty food, great service, and awesome beer!

I went in for an early lunch so I'm sure I didn't get the entire "vibe" that everyone else possibly had but the "vibe" at the time was just perfect enough for me to enjoy my AWESOME pretzel app and my hamburger with my AMAZING black IPA.

On a visit to Saint Louis, our friends took us here and it was amazing. I started out with the Raspberry Heffe first and it was a great summer afternoon beer, and then I migrated towards the Stl Brews Saison, which they partnered with the St. Louis Home Brewers Association to come up with this collaboration and it might be the best Saison I have had. The food was great as well, would recommend the Pretzels for an appetizer and the Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf Muffin for your entree.

I was glad I was able to stop by during my latest visit to St. Louis.

The Tap Room is large. I headed to the left to the barroom. There is a 20' bar that seats about 10 and there are a ton of high tops and a small lounge area with a couch and comfy chairs. There is also a stage in the barroom and I see they have bands on weekends.

Tile floors, exposed brick, beautiful high wood ceilings, wood beams, arched windows, etc. all add up to an attractive place. Note they also have a small terrace out front.

I like the menu, lots of interesting options. First time I have seen herring in white sauce any place south of MN or WI! My soup was good and the pizza was very good but a touch greasy.

17 house beers on tap during my visit. Wide range of styles. I liked everything I had.

Service was fine, not overly chatty but there when I needed a refill.

Atmosphere is harder to rate. I was there on a Tuesday for happy hour and there was only 3 people in the barroom. Cards were out of town, but still that's not much of a crowd. By 7:15 it started to fill up a bit and by the time I left around 8;30 there was a least 25 people there.
