This place is located on a little waterfront dealie downtown, right next to the arch. The area is touristy, but also filled with loud music attractive, drunken young people, so I assume there's a decent amount of townies there, too. Anyhow, I went late, so I can't judge the food or dining atmosphere. As a bar, however, it was pretty pleasant in spite of being loud and packed. The crowd seemed pretty okay, the bartenders were friendly, and nothing at all was in any way offputting...

...Except the beer, which sucked. They had a gigantic selection and all the pints were very reasonably priced, but of the four beers that I sampled, the best was just a notch above tolerable.

Don't get me wrong: this wasn't the Waterloo, Iowa Beck's Bar and Grill, where the beer actually tastes worse than the stuff that gets pumped out of a Mr. Beer kit. But everything *did* taste quite homebrewy, and not in a good way. In the vienna, for example, the hop profile was non-existent and the carbonation was so intense that I thought it was tearing the enamel off my teeth. The stout had a decent aroma and okay hop profile, but there was a strong aftertaste of dish rag.

Still, I got no beef with the place as a place. Some friends of mine went earlier in the day and the said the food was good, so maybe it's a fine place to visit. Just, don't get the beer.

long established (1995) brewpub near the river and the Arch, that is more of a restaurant than brewery. The beer selection is more for the masses, not beer geeks. The 6 house beers were all lagers. The schwarzbier was okay, the pilsner was pretty good. We got our drinks fairly quickly but the food took forever and they weren't even busy. The pizza was horrible - like someone put american cheese and ragu sauce on a stale tortilla. Maybe the burgers are better, but I wouldn't eat here again.

This place is massive. Multiple entrances, multiple levels and multiple bars. What was worrisome was how empty it was. The beer is very average. I didn't stay long, which is too bad because it's location is very close to many downtown hotels and the Arch.

Very easy to find in the Laclede Landing section of St. Louis, I was excited to visit this brewpub. The canned beer is excellent, and I had high hopes. At the restaurant, however, I was somewhat disappointed. The beer selection was a nice, but limited mix of mostly German styles. The Helles and the Maibock were both respectable and tasty. But, whereas the beer was solid, the food, atmosphere, and service were all substandard. First, although they were not busy, waitstaff stood by chatting, rather than seating my family for several minutes. The service was then slow, inattentive, and mostly disinterested. Beer was served out of a clearly chipped glass. The food was acceptable pub fare, but, frankly, on par with most chain casual dining restaurants.
I liked the good beer, but I won't be going back again to eat.
