I visited this brewpub for dinner while traveling on business. Located in downtown, it's adjacent to a new parking garage, so parking is simple and plentiful. The pub is located in an old building, and has a both inviting and cavernous feel. I was there on a Wednesday night, and the place was very lively, nearly packed early in the evening. Service was friendly and quick. The waitress was eager to describe the beers, but she didn't have much beer knowledge beyond what was written in the menu (points for enthusiasm, though). I had a steak, which was flavorful although overcooked. I had a dunkle and a pale ale. The pale ale was the better of the two, though both were quite tasty. All in all, this was a nice neighborhood brew pub, and I'd recommend a visit of you're in the area.

Stopped in Springfeld Brewing a few times while in town on business.
Nice local brewery. Large,open,woody appearance.Plenty of parking available.
Service was good on my visits even though the place gets quite busy.We sat at the bar a couple of times, and were treated with respect.
Beers were not exceptional,but they were solid,and well done. None really stood out, but none were awful,either. 6 different taps,no guest taps.Prices were reasonable.
Food was typical bar food, maybe a slight step above.
Worthwhile stop if you are in Springfield.

Located downtown in an area that seems to be having a resurgence. This brick building is large and exhibits the normal brass and wood feel. It has a large open bar. There are some TV's, but it is not the center point like a sports bar.
I had 3 beers and all were well executed, but nothing to write home about. I liked the Kolsch the best and was happy that they strayed from the traditional Pale Ales.
The service was standard and so was the food. To be honest I would have given this place a lower rating, but I had some great conversations with people that seemed to know beer. So I feel like I just need to come back another time.
Obviously, Springfield doesn't have a TON of options. So check it out if you are in the area, but as of today I wouldn't go our of your way for this brewpub. Good vibe...average beers.

Nice gentle brewpub in downtown Springfield. Great bar area-clean and bright. Not an overwhelming selection of beers. The usual light, brown, pale ale, etc. A nice dubbel bock on tap though. Pizza was very good. I bought some 750's of their belgium oak aged beer-I'll give that a taste later on. A nice little midwestern safe brewpub. One issue-the bartender did not know that the bottled beer was an ale-he said it was a combination of an ale and lager. Well, I guess there's a reason he's a bartender and not a brewer.

I was visiting friends in town last weekend and watching the Evangel Graduation so I stopped in for lunch. I figured I wouldn't have to deal with the Evangel Graduation crowd at the brew co! Although this wasn't my first visit, it was definitely a different experience. It was really quiet inside for once. I usually go on a Saturday for lunch or in the evening which tends to be pretty busy. It's a great bar atmosphere though so I can't complain. The food is pretty good, but nothing out of the ordinary. I ordered the Black and Blue burger, I'm a sucker for blue cheese. Then I ordered my usual beer flight, as I like to have them all. I need to start asking if I can skip the Wheat and Lager and get some other varieties instead. Also, the Summer Kolsch is a bit of a disappointment, not as good as I remembered. But the pale ale is ok, the Dunkel was tastey, and my favorite was the black sheep variety for the day which was the Dry Stout. I swapped a buddy of mine the Dunkel for his Stout, it was a nice ending to my meal. A nice lunch stop with ok beers. I wouldn't go out of my way to hit it up, but if I was in Springfield already I'd go again.

Went here as part of a business trip.
The beer was very well crafted. I tried the O'fest, it fit the bill of an O'fest. The IPA was very solid as was the wheat.
The place is a GIANT cavernous space, filled with lower level seating, a mezzanine, and brewing equipment.
The food was very good as well, with excellent wings, the "moms mac and cheese" is good as well.
A short review, but I recommend this place highly, stop here for a beer, or a beer and dinner. Either way this is a great highlight to the admirable Springfield downtown area.

I think most of beer geeks are suckers for brewpubs established in old brick buildings. In fact, I believe this site was a previous Springfield Brewing. Anyway, it's a nice anchor to a slightly run-down industrial area. Big, airy rooms, decent food, and a knowledgeable, helpful staff. Another good Rt. 66 landmarkokay, it's not ON Rt. 66 like a few other brewpubs, but this popped up at the right part of the day. Gave us the wherewithal to go on and have a good laugh at the Precious Moments Chapel.
This place largely serves as a showcase for Paul Mueller beer equipment, so there's some good-sized industrial-strength brewing stuff, though they may pay for in a certain "standardness" of their brews. They just need some time and a clever brewmaster to come up with something with more flair.

Whilst I wasn't disappointed in Springfield Brewing Company, I certainly wouldn't go out of my way to visit. The food and atmosphere were good, but the beer average at best. If you're in the area or passing through I'd stop, but I wouldn't make it a point, especially with so many superior breweries nearby in St. Louis.

This place is either great or just average depending on your beer karma score. If your really into beer, you'll find it average. If your a novice you'll be impressed. Because they brew their own, tap selection is limited to six though the cask conditioned ones are rarely available. They make a really good pale ale but the rest of the beers are just average (o.k. some of the seasonals can be pretty good). Food and service are always hit and miss. For example two weeks ago I had a Grilled Chicken Salad and they forgot to mix in the dressing. Today, they had just the right amount of dressing in the same salad. If you want to make sure you have a good meal the Bayou Chicken is the safest bet.
Place is always busy on weekends as the upstairs bar has billiards and video games. Sunday nights have a jazz musician. While decent overall, go around the corner to Patton Alley Pub for a better beer experience.

I went here for lunch with my fiancee. It has a pretty large restaraunt/bar area with two spatious floors. I like that the ceilings are made out of wood giving it a rustic appearance as oposed to the black metal in more modern restaurants.
I tried the Irish dry stout which was decent but I should have tried more beers to get a feel for it.
It was slow during the morning/early afternoon when we ate here and our waitress was pretty attentive. She explained the beers and the specials to us.
Lots of choices of foods and a standard selection of beers. They have some common styles as well as seasonals and specialty beers which rotate periodically. Lower priced lunch menu as well. They also offer sandwiches, pastas and entrees.
I had the steak Santa Fe pasta (on special) and my financee had a buffalo chicken sandwich. My meal was decent, but it lacked the kick I was looking for and the sauce was pretty thin and conservatively poured onto the pasta. They gave me plenty of steak but not many veggies or sauce and the flavor was not really there. I tried a bite of the buffalo chicken sandwich and it was pretty good, standard but tasty.
The prices were very reasonable. My meal was $7.50 and the beer was about $3.50. Our meals and drinks combined were about $21.00 for two meals, a soda and a fresh beer. This place is worth a try, I probably just got the wrong beer and the wrong meal. I hope to go back some time again.
