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!

Big place with a cool bar and lots of seating for the restaurant folk. Visited on a Wednesday late afternoon and there were lots of families and folks from downtown who had just gotten off work. Beer selection was awesome. I had a hard time choosing what to try, and was generally happy with my selections. Service was just okay. Got a very cool t-shirt and some beer to take home. Fish and chips were awesome.

Not enough APAs in the world can make that BIT worth the 13 bucks. And most of their beers or above average replacements for AB. Go down the street to... well anything.

Ate at 7pm on a Friday night. Plenty of seating available, as place was about half full. Large selection of beers available. The beers are average to good, you can see their reviews separately. Service was good, but they were not busy. The food was also good, nothing was bad but nothing stood out either. Overall it's a good place to experience part of the St. Louis food scene.

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.
