Finally had a chance to stop by the newest brewery in St. Louis, Six Row Brewing Company, so I thought that I’d share some of my thoughts and also some photos. First, I really liked the feel of the place. It’s very warm and very inviting. It seems like agreat place to stop in a grab a pint or two before heading home or heading to an event downtown.
For only being open for two months, I thought the beers were very solid. I enjoyed the Extra Pale Ale quite a bit, the Honey Weizen has some great banana notes, and I thought that Porter was very good. I’m happy to see a local St. Louis brewery offering up a porter. Wasn’t a big fan of the Whale, but that could just be my own palate.
It also looks like these guys may be looking into doing a little bit of distribution in the future, so it will be nice to see some of their beers available around town. This is a brewery first and foremost. Look at the menu below and you’ll see there isn’t much in the way of food. But I think this gives them the opportunity to concentrate solely on making beer.
I’m curious to see where these guys go and I’m looking forward to the future.
