This was the third stop on a mid-Missouri brewpub tour.

This is a new entry, having opened just a few months ago in a former 1970s-era fire station. The tasting room is very small, a short standing-only bar counter and just a few small bar tables.

As seen in one of the photos below, they grow their own hops on site. There’s also a beer garden out back with at least twice as much seating space as they have inside. In addition to the beer they serve wood fired pizzas.

Their flights consist of your choice of three beers, which seemed a little odd to us since they typically have only 4 to 5 varieties available at a time. We paid extra to try them all.

Ok, I try to avoid actual “reviews” on this site whenever possible, but it’s hard not to in this case. Overall, this brewery has been getting glowing reviews across the board, and they have been very busy. While we were there we heard mention of them having a “beer shortage” and witnessed multiple keg changes. So I’m hoping that our visit was just a fluke, because our beer tasted… off. Not just one of them, all of them. I really hope, and want to believe, that we were either getting the bottom of the keg or some batches that had been rushed to try to keep up with demand. In that’s the case, they may want to consider reducing their hours so they have more time to keep up with demand.
