St Louis

Our philosophy is to brew beer with the adventurous craft beer drinker in mind—focusing on hand-crafted, small batches of beer, using local, seasonal and organic ingredients as much as possible.
Our beers are influenced mostly by Belgian and American craft styles, but the addition of premium ingredients such as fruits, spices or wild yeast strains sometimes causes the beers to defy traditional categories. Our barrel aging program features a wide variety of beers aged in wine and spirits barrels, ranging from a Rye barrel-aged Mexican Chocolate Stout to a wild yeast-fermented Saison aged on Missouri wine grapes in French oak wine barrels. We strive to always achieve balance with each of our recipes, making our beers exceptional with food.

Maplewood

 What began as a dream and a side project has now grown into our 100% barrel-aged brewery. Passion, experimentation and patience drive the creation of our rustic Saisons, Wild Ales and Spirit Barrel-Aged Ales. As we share our craft with you, we hope you share it with your friends as well.

St. Louis

Whether rolling off the lines at Bottleworks or aging deep below the Tap Room floor, every beer we pour, package or raise is made by hand and with heart.

Our brewers curate over 60 unique styles, utilizing 102 hop varietals, 77 malts and grains, 59 different spices and fruits and 10 separate yeast strains from all over the planet.

100% renewable energy drives our entire operation. Solar energy produces 32,000+ kilowatt hours per year from the 105 photovoltaic rooftop solar panels.
Environmental stewardship influences each decision we make. Buyers know farmers by name. And livestock seem to appreciate the spent grains that find their way into troughs around the region.
Our brewpubs divert 74 tons of organic food waste from landfills by composting, produce 4 tons of fresh food from our urban garden each year and has been a dedicated 5-star original member of The St. Louis Dining Alliance.

Springfield

Mother's Brewing Company brews beer the only way we know how: with a mother's love. A love that begins on the Springfield Street we walk between pubs. A love found in centuries of brewing tradition. A love in mastering and then reinventing those traditions. A love felt in every palm-searing high five delivered across the bar. In laughter over a shared six-pack. In a meal elevated by a perfectly paired beer. In the hair of the dog the morning after. From our brew house to your backyard., we infuse everything that we are into every drop of your beer. We believe in love. We brew love. In downtown Springfield.

Florissant

Narrow Gauge Brewing Company is a microbrewery/brewpub that opened in June of 2016 and is located in Florissant, MO. We have a passion for hops so many of our beers are IPAs and Pale Ales.

St. Louis

Once upon a time, Steve received a brew kit for Christmas.
Using a careful combination of science and cunning, he created a brew that had family saying “This isn’t bad” and “Is it supposed to taste like that?” Steve continued to science the hell out of his beer in his free time, mixing flavors and aromas like it was his job… until it was.
Yes, Steve’s second shift as a brewmaster transformed into a career that’s kept him, his wife Libby and the whole 2nd Shift Brewing team busy for the last several years crafting the kind of beers that make your liver beg for mercy. You can find us at our new location at 1601 Sublette Ave. on The Hill. We’d love to have a beer with you so come visit us!

Ste. Genevieve

Crown Valley Brewing and Distilling Company features handcrafted beer, vodka, gin, and Missouri Moonshine made exclusively at this Crown County location.

Take a tour of the facility to learn about the brewing and distilling process, along with history of the Coffman area.

 

We are focusing our efforts on those wild and vibrant beers you all love so much. We want to bring you dry and rustic ales like those of Wallonia and the Senne Valley, fermented with your favorite little beasts in wood and steel after the style of the old country. In order to produce such wild and sour beers we will be harvesting yeast and propagating it in our in-house laboratory. We take traditional methods seriously, but we also have a few ideas of our own.

Crane Brewing Company is an American brewery inspired equally by both the bold craft beers of home and the rustic ales of Europe. We hope to fulfill the desire of our local metro for these exotic beers, and we hope beer lovers from near and far join us in Raytown, MO for a taste sometime. We strive to build on this grand tradition that never stays the same for too long.

Crane Brewing, Tradition Evolving.

Belleview

The elephant-shaped boulders at Elephant Rocks State Park may not be the stars of a circus, but these giant granite boulders are the stars of this unusual park in southeast Missouri.
The elephant rocks, which were formed from 1.5 billion year old granite, are giant boulders that stand end-to-end like a train of circus elephants. The rocks have created formations that intrigue geologists, are popular with history buffs interested in the past quarrying, and fascinate children who love to climb on and between the boulders. 
An easy way to see the rocks is from the Braille Trail, which was especially designed for people with visual and physical disabilities. The trail winds through the main area of rocks. An extension off the trail leads back to the ruins of an old railroad engine house, a remnant of the area’s quarrying and railroad history.

Augusta

The Augusta region was nationally known for its wine during the 19th century, but Prohibition halted the state’s winemaking for decades. Then, in the late 1960s and early 1970s, a few pioneering souls began to refurbish the old vineyards and winery buildings.
One of these pioneers was Clayton Byers, who founded Montelle Vineyards in 1970. The winery was later purchased in 1998 by present owner and wine maker Tony Kooyumjian.
The secret to our success in producing outstanding wines is our vineyards. The Augusta area was chosen as the first viticultural area in the United States because of our unique soils, microclimate, and history, and it is our mission to produce wines that exemplify the uniqueness of this eleven square mile area.
Our philosophy is to farm our vineyards with a respect for the land and the environment. As a result, our wines are fresh, fragrant, focused, and well balanced, but most of all, express the uniqueness of our vineyards. It is this attention to detail that
