Civil Life Brewing Company
Saint Louis, MO 63116
Riverfront Times's Description
This new south-side microbrewery's opening has been delayed, delayed and then delayed some more, but it's finally open and serving up mugs of suds. Indoors, the tasting room is separated from the rest of the brewery, almost as if Dorothy's ranch was plopped in the middle of a heavy-duty operation. The rustic wood room has been packed on weekends, with a crowd that looks like it got lost on the way to Clayton. There are two patios, one with private seating, and the larger, open patio is outfitted with rows of picnic tables. The ground is covered with a few inches of tricky gravel, so ladies should mind their footwear when sipping al fresco.
Tips from foursquare
Good beer. English Best lives up to the name and the others are all good.
Best microbrewery in STL!
Black Ale is mighty tasty!
IRISH RED! Great roasted red pepper bruschetta.
In the upstairs area, board games and books can help you while away a few hours at one of the pub’s semiprivate tables. (Evan S. Benn)
