ST. LOUIS — Brew Hub, the award-winning craft brewer and partner brewer for several of the most popular names in craft brewing, announced the opening of the Brew Hub Taproom at 5656 Oakland Avenue in the City of St. Louis. The Taproom is open Tuesdays through Sundays and features a four-barrel pilot brewing system, a distilling operation and a barrel-aging program, under the direction of Brew Hub’s chief brewer, Jim Ottolini.
In addition to its extensive and exclusive craft beer selection, the Taproom also serves lunch and dinner featuring sharable small plates and heartier fare with ingredients sourced from local farms. The 120-seat restaurant and tasting room is located directly across from Forest Park in the Highlands development adjacent to the Hampton Inn and will feature a 30-seat, dog-friendly patio.
The Brew Hub Taproom serves beers from Brew Hub’s own collection, including Keybilly Island Ale, Diver Down Red Ale and Rome City IPA, which was awarded a gold medal in the Session India Pale Ale beer-style category at the 2017 Great American Beer Festival. They also serve beers from the company’s 14-plus partner brewers, marking the first time these and several additional craft brands will be available in St. Louis.
“No matter what style of craft beer you like, we have something for everyone at the Taproom,” said Diane Schoen, vice president of marketing of Brew Hub. “We’re excited to bring so many great craft beers to St. Louis beer lovers, and we look forward to welcoming guests to our new home.”
Andy White, a 25-year St. Louis culinary veteran who has worked at The Ritz-Carlton, Harvest and Schlafly, serves as the chef and general manager and is in charge of developing the restaurant’s menu.
“Guests to the Taproom can expect high-quality food to complement our awesome lineup of craft beers,” said White. “Whether it’s a couple of small bites paired with a flight of beers or a larger meal paired with a pint, quality goes into everything we do. St. Louis has a phenomenal beer community, and we are thrilled to be a part of this exciting chapter in our city’s rich beer history.”
