Perfect Spots for Meeting Clients, Friends, and Dates
A lot of people associate the city of St. Louis with beer. It is, after all, home to one of the largest breweries in the country.
However, Budweiser is far from the end-all-be-all of the beer scene in St. Louis. There are plenty of tasty craft beers near where the famed Cardinals play.
Like many major cities all over America, the city of St. Louis is exploding with a variety of small local microbreweries that specialize in craft brews beloved by serious beer fans.
There are tons of craft breweries all over the St. Louis area, especially if you are on the way to a concert or a game at the Scott Trade Center.
One of the areas favorite craft breweries in Schlafly. Known mostly for its pale ale, Schlafly has quickly become one of the most popular brews in St. Louis. It’s so popular that you can buy a six-pack at pretty much every grocery store in the St. Louis area. However, as widespread as its success has become, Schlafly is still a small operation, having only two actual locations within the city.
The Schlafly Tap Room is located in downtown St. Louis, not far from the Scott Trade Center. It’s a popular destination for crowds before and after Blues games as well as concerts and other events that are hosted at Scott Trade. If you are looking to grab a bite to eat and get a drink before the game, the Schlafly Tap Room is the place to go. With its extensive menu and its tap selection of 16 different draft beers, you are sure to find something that will satisfy your cravings.
Schlafly’s second location is the Schlafly Bottleworks. The Bottleworks is located outside of the city itself, but if you are at all interested in the brewing process, it is worth a trip. They give free tours of their facility to the interested public who wants to see how the beer it made. You can also grab a bite to eat and a beer to drink at the end of the tour. Both locations also have special events like live music for your enjoyment as well. You can learn more by visiting their website.
Another favorite local brewery in the St. Louis area is Six Row Brewing Company. Six Row is located a little further away from the downtown scene, but it is still plenty close to favorite locations like Scott Trade and Busch Stadium to warrant a pre-game trip. Six Row is also pretty close to the Fabulous Fox Theatre, so it’s also a great place to get dinner and drinks before your favorite musical as well.
If you are planning a trip into the city to check out craft breweries in and around the Scott Trade Center and other popular locations, you need to remember that safety is of the utmost importance. If you are hopping from brewery to brewery and sampling different kinds of beer, the last thing you need to be doing is driving. There are plenty of precautions that you can take to make sure that you are making your brewery trip as safe as possible, one of these includes having someone else drive for you.
Choosing a member of your party to be a designated driver is always a wise idea. However, what is an even better idea is to hire a professional driver to take you around the breweries in the area. A professional driver from a limo service is guaranteed to remain sober safe throughout the entirety of your journey.
Hiring a professional also allows for everyone in your party to have a good time instead of forcing one of your friends to abstain from the drinks to be a designated driver. A professional driver will also have a more expansive knowledge of the area and the traffic that will get you from place to place in a timely manner.
