“great beer, friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

We stopped here for a drink after eating at Pappy’s Smokehouse. The bar was pretty empty (Thursday night),and we soon started chatting with the waitress/bartender and the manager (owner-?). Everyone was really friendly, and the beer was really good. We got to try samples of everything before ordering full pints. Our favorites were the Belgian saison (8.5%) and the rye IPA, which we took a growler of to go. They even let us pose with the buffalo behind the bar and gave us a bag of ice for our cooler since we had just driven 15 hours and still wanted to see the arch before going to our campground. Definitely stop here for some good beer.

“Reasonably Priced”

Good prices, but I would like to see a little more variety in food choices.

“Try something else”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2012

The line for Pappy's Smokehouse was just to long so we tried Buffalo Brewing Co. We were so disappointed, perhaps especially with the service. We arrived before noon and before quite a few other larger parties and the staff apparently forgot who was supposed to help us so we waited for quite some time while others got served. In their defense, when they finally did come by they provided us the beers without charge. The food is okay but just average. I ordered a burger medium and my wife medium well and both came out well done. It is also so strange that none of the beers are written down. When we asked the staff for a list of what kind of beer they had, they replied that there were to many beers to write it down, so we got a very rapid recitation with very little description. It would take so little effort to raise this place up a few stars and I hope they do. For now, with so many other places in St. Louis, we will skip this place in the future.

“Great beer. Good food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

The microbrewery offers great beers - big selection. But the food is typical bar food. The zucchini was mushy, the "beer can" chicken was tough and rubbery. The potato chips were fantastic. It was the only place open in the neighborhood - Pappys had run out of food - very disappointing.

“Simple friendly brewpub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2012

Clean friendly place, very friendly and attentive, knowledgeable wait staff. Our waitress too, time to explain with good level of detail, all available house brewed choices. Staff was all friendly and pleasant. Decor items seemed to "fit" and be authentic, not the fake stuff on walls at Chili's. Would definitely revisit, and we took extra effort to get a T shirt. BONUS to be 32 steps from Pappy's Smokehouse!!
