Prison Brews

(Jefferson City, MO)

Scooter’s 1029th bar, first visited in 2014.

Prison Brews, Jefferson City

This was the 4th stop on our mid-Missouri brewpub tour, and my favorite stop of the day. It’s located in a cool little neighborhood near Lincoln University and a block or so from the former Missouri State Penitentiary

We had ordered a few sets of appetizers, all of which were delicious. The flight consisted of 7 varieties — the largest of this tour — and apart from my dislike of wheat beer I enjoyed all 6 of the remaining beers thoroughly.

The prison theme is orchestrated in detail, down to the food slots in the bars around the bar (the bar is behind bars) and the restrooms being signed as “Gas Chambers”.

Just outside the building is a nice partially-covered courtyard with ample seating and two bocce courts.
