Best Brewery in St. Louis

Looking for a favorite beer can sometimes be frustrating, but lucky for St. Louis residents they have a world of beer at their fingertips.

Morgan Street Brewery is a bar and restaurant in St. Louis, located in the historic Laclede’s Landing, and “has something for everyone.” The venue also features outdoor and indoor seating and a brewery atmosphere.

Speaking of brewery the spot brews their own beer on site, with the brewery being located on the ground floor. Morgan Street brews 1,400 barrels of their own distinctive beer. In addition to their “colorful world of beer,” they brew seasonal beers from fall brews to Christmas brews, summer ales and everything in between.

A favorite among regulars is the Honey Wheat, which many Yelpers claim is the must-try beer of first-time visitors. If this doesn’t suit your fancy, there are 5+ others on tap at all times.

Beer enthusiasts can drink their way through The Gateway to the West and be certain that there is no shortage of suds in this city! Even though it’s not “craft beer”, you can even pay a visit to the headquarters of Anheuser-Busch InBev, the largest brewing company in the United States…but we definitely don’t recommend it!

Both visitors and locals alike will hopefully learn a thing or two from our guide to breweries in St. Louis!

If you search any list of Top Breweries in St. Louis, Four Hands is consistently at the top! A variety of different activities and events are scheduled weekly. From paint nights to flower arrangement lessons, their tasting room in the Lasalle Park neighborhood is never boring! This microbrewery’s beers are barrel-aged, producing a truly unique tap lineup.

Located in the Midtown neighborhood of St. Louis, Well-Spent Beer is a family-owned business. Founder Kyle Kohlmorgen opened the doors of the repurposed movie theater-turned brewery in March 2018.

Urban Chestnut offers something different at each of its three St. Louis locations from in-house smoked meats to New York style pizza! Their beers are split into two categories: the Reverence Series pays homage to historic Bavarian recipes and brewing styles while their Revolution series celebrates modern, American craft beer.

That wraps up our list of our favorite breweries in St. Louis! It was incredibly difficult to narrow down the list, and we could go on forever about the amazing beer that this city has to offer.

This Laclede's Landing brewpub has been turning out microbrews and beer-friendly grub since 1995. Lagers are the specialty of award-winning brewer Marc Gottfried they range from the Krystal (aimed at those not yet weaned from macrobrews) to the hearty, high-alcohol Doppelbock, with plenty of seasonal variety in between. The menu offers burgers, pizza, meat loaf and - of course - soft pretzels, the perfect pairing for almost any brew. Pastas and entrées such as a smoked pork chop and salmon glazed with honey-chile sauce are also an option.

Morgan Street Brewery

I'm thinking about hitting up the Morgan Street Brewery for a night of food, drinks, and dancing. Neither of us have ever been. Thoughts on this place?

It used to be the place to go. Now it's kind of empty, at least the last time I went after the Heritage Festival on the riverfront. The beer is decent, the food I've never had. It's huge, lots of exposed brick, cool vibe.

The landing is fun for a weird night out. There are some normal bars & clubs like Big Daddy's & Joey B's, and then odder stuff like Burlesque shows. Hoping it can regain its footing once all the avenues are opened back up. The addition of residential will be helpful, and there has been talk about about building a residential tower down there for a while now -- would be perfect given it's access to MetroLink. Either way, I have fun down there just because it feels like you're stepping back in time a bit to what we could have had where the Arch is now. It's pretty humbling how we could have had 40 square blocks of dense urban living with a real connection to the river.


Morgan Street Brewery

Visited late afternoon on a Wednesday. Located in the Laclede’s Landing area of St Louis, which i tucked just north of the arch, and between downtown and the river. Cobblestone streets, mostly touristy bars and restaurants and casinos. Selection was 6 house beers on, styles leaning a bit towards lagers. Food menu is “first generation brewpub” as is the vibe. Near the metrolink which is nice. Many more interesting options in St. Louis, but if you are in the area worth a look.

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Stopped during RBSG Bus Tour.

Kind of a weird, multi-tiered set up to this building. Down near the river, which is cool, I guess.

This place is straight out of the doldrums of US brewpub past. They at least have a good number of beers on tap ƙ during our stop). But mostly the mediocre brewing quality. I guess at least they had something other than the blonde ale, pale ale, brown ale, amber ale lineup.

Was sort of a serve yourself experience, but the staff were pleasant and willing to answer any questions that people had. They also put out some snacks (soft pretzels) which was nice.

Probably wouldn’t come here again. Seems like a place where you could come get loaded for cheap with your bros, though.

List of St. Louis’s Top Breweries

Until we write our full guide to St. Louis, here is a list of the best breweries in the greater St. Louis area, according to Untappd, along with information about hours of operation and food options. This list will be updated frequently, but if you notice anything inaccurate on this list, or if you see that we accidentally left off a brewery, please kindly let us know and we’ll fix it as soon as we can! We strive to provide the most accurate and up-to-date source of brewery information possible. (For why we chose to sort by Untappd rating, please check out our FAQ.) And, as always, before going to a brewery, check their website or social media to see if they have food trucks on certain days, food delivery options, or irregular hours that day.

Also, be sure to sign up for our newsletter for weekly updates on new brewery hop guides, new research lists for cities across the country, new events on our event calendar, and more! Those from Missouri should check our list for Kansas City. And tell your friends! Cheers!

NOTE: As the world continues to re-open after this spring’s COVID-19 pandemic quarantine, many who have re-opened their taprooms are now operating on a different schedule than they had in place pre-quarantine. We will be updating our site as quickly as we can, but it’s very possible that the information on our brewery lists regarding dates, times, and food availability is no longer accurate. Before heading to any brewery, please check the brewery’s social media to determine their hours of operation, and be sure to read our guide for beer travel as the pandemic continues. Thanks!

Thanks so much for visiting– we hope you come back soon, and we hope beer travels return to normal as soon as the world will allow. Cheers!


Top Breweries in St. Louis

Anheuser-Busch is the big dog in the St. Louis brewing game. It’s so popular in this area that it is simply reffed to as “AB,” and no self-respecting St. Louisan would dare order a Miller product at a bar. Located just South of downtown, the AB brewery fills the air with the welcome aroma of malted grains every few weeks. The brewery is open for free tours (featuring a tasting at the hospitality room at the end), and also offers a $10 “beer school” which uses a series of free samples to teach its students about different varieties of beer. AB was the last of the great American breweries to fall under foreign ownership, after competitors Miller and Coors were bought out and became SABMiller and Molson-Coors respectively. AB was purchased by Belgian giant InBev in 2008 creating the largest beverage company in the world, surpassing even Coca-Cola.

Beers to try: Budweiser, Budweiser American Ale, Michelob AmberBock, Shock Top.

Schlafly

2100 Locust Street
St. Louis, MO 63103
(314) 241-1365
schlafly.com

The Schlafly beer brand is technically produced by a company called St. Louis Brewery Inc., but since Schlafly is the only brand of beer produced by that company, the names are used interchangeably. Schlafly kick-started the craft beer movement in St. Louis when it started up in 1991 as a brewpub now known as the Schlafly Tap Room in downtown St. Louis. Schlafly began distributing bottled beer in 1993, but they relied on a third party to do the bottling until 2003 when they opened the Schlafly Bottleworks brewpub and bottling plant in Maplewood. After 20 years of defining the St. Louis microbrew market, Schlafly is gearing up to make a much bigger splash on the national scene. Large marketing campaigns are scheduled to start in April of 2011 to promote the brand here at home, and as far away as New York. Schlafly is also a major player in our city’s little cross-state rivalry with Kansas City, competing against Boulevard Brewery for best Missouri craft beer. If you ask me, it’s no contest. Schlafly all the way.

Beers to try: Pilsner, Dry Hopped APA, Oatmeal Stout, Helles Style Summer Lager.

Square One Brewery and Distillery

1727 Park Avenue
St. Louis, MO 63104
(314) 231-2537
squareonebrewery.com

Square One Brewery and Distillery, as the name suggests, has a lot more going on than brewing beer. That doesn’t mean you can count them out on the beer front, they offer an astonishing fifty (fifty!) beers that rotate availability on a seasonal basis. There’s sure to be something in their offerings to please every beer fan, from their smooth but surprisingly complex Light Squared to their full bodied, biting IPA (by the way, this is one of the best IPAs I’ve ever had, and I’ve had a lot). Of course, you can’t forget the house crafted spirits they offer, which include whiskey, vodka, rum, tequila, gin, and more. Their Lafayette Square brewpub rounds out the offerings with an impressive and delicious menu featuring a wide array of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, entrées, and just about anything else your heart (or stomach) desires.

Beers to try: Park Avenue Pale Ale, IPA, Irish Stout, Light Squared

Urban Chestnut Brewing

3229 Washington Ave
St. Louis, MO 63103
(314) 222-0143
urbanchestnut.com

Urban Chestnut is a pioneer of what they call “beer divergency.” Recognizing the simultaneous importance of the growing American craft beer movement and the traditional brewing styles of beers of old, Urban Chestnut offers two lines of beers each highlighting one system. Their Revolution series concentrates on furthering the ideas of American microbrews, adding experimental touches to some popular beer types. One of the highlights of this series is the Half Crown, which Urban Chestnut calls a “session IPA” (sounds like an oxymoron, I know). The Reverence series consists largely of recreations of traditional European brews. Both series have a distinct German style to them, so if you’re not a fan of German beer you may want to stick to the Half Crown in the Revolution series or the Harwood Myth (English brown ale) in the Reverence series.

Morgan Street Brewery is one of the oldest brewpubs in St. Louis, opened in 1995 in the heart of Laclede’s Landing. The expansive structure features the brewery itself on the first floor, two bars, one on the first floor and one on the second, and an outdoor dining area. In 1997 it was expanded to include the adjoining building to provide more room for private events. The beer offerings span a wide range of styles, from the thoroughly European Maibock and Doppelbock to the truly American Honey Wheat. They offer some of their beers on a year round basis, and others rotate in and out with the seasons. They also offer a full menu of satisfying brewpub food, with highlights on starters, sandwiches, and pizzas.

Beers to try: Golden Pilsner, Red Lager, Irish Stout, Vienna.

Six Row Brewing

Six Row is awfully new to the St. Louis brewery scene, opening for business just over a year ago in December 2009. They take their name from six row barley, the popular brewing malt, and from the six original owners. Their beer offerings are still growing, with offerings, recipes, and brewing styles evolving as the brewery ages. A few of their beers have been around since Six Row’s inception, including their unique Whale (wheat-pale ale). This beer was conceived when a mismatched batch of malts were combined from one of the owner’s personal home brew stock as a way to test the brewing equipment in it’s early days. Ten total malts are used in this one-of-a-kind beer, as well as a few varieties of hops and yeast. This is an interesting beer that has no counterpart, so you’ll have to go to Six Row to try anything like it.

Beers to try: ESB, Foreign Extra Stout, Strong Porter, Whale.

Buffalo Brewing

Buffalo Brewing is in a wonderful location, sharing a building with Pappy’s Smokehouse, one of the best BBQ joints St. Louis has to offer. Next time you’re at Pappy’s lamenting their lack of beer, you need only take a few steps to the north and you can enjoy a taste of Buffalo’s constantly rotating beer offerings. But don’t think this place is just for beer, they also feature a full menu that includes a buffalo burger and other items that showcase their namesake. You may never see the same beer selection twice at Buffalo Brewing, they’re constantly creating new beers and rotating the old favorites. Among the beers that come back on a regular basis, you’ll find what is, as far as I can tell, the only chili beer in St. Louis. Chili beers are my favorite non-traditional brew (there’s a fantastic brewpub in Columbia, MO called Flatbranch that got me hooked on their Green Chili beer), and Buffalo’s Chili Beer does not disappoint. Try it, and enjoy the bright, light-bodied flavor coupled with the lingering spicy feeling it leaves on the back of your tongue.
