I really like this place. Good food and some seriously good beers.
Lots of outdoor seating in this place, very, very little seating indoors. When you're inside it can be a little noisy, but no sweat. Outside, in nice weather would be simply wonderful, as it over looks the Katy Trail and some farmer's fields.
The beer was quite good, the IPA was a great example of a english IPA and was remarkably drinkable while maintaining a nice, even bitterness. They were out of the barrel aged barley wine. Damn!
Food was really, really good and served promptly. Just a damned nice place.

This rustic sister to Square One Brewery is located way out in Augusta. Make sure you check the hours before making the drive if you are coming from the city, as I learned the hard way when I originally tried to visit back in February only to find them closed. The brewpub is located just off I-94 overlooking the Missouri River. There is a small lot to the side of the brewpub.
The outside ie beautiful, with a small biergarten and an outdoor bar, all with nice views of the river and surrounding woodlands. The outside bar has a cooler with some beers to go and a small merchandise table, as well as a large chalkboard listing the current beers. The interior is smaller with s short bar and a few tables. They have a small collection of breweriana inside too.
The beer selection is pretty good, and there is some crossover with Square One. The beers range from Blonde, Hefe, Witbier, Pale to Stout along with a seasonal Rye. They also have a couple of their beers in bombers. Overall the beers are above average.
The service was very good on a weekday early evening. The bartender was pretty much doing everything (hosting, cooking etc) and was efficient and knowledgeable. He interacted well with patrons who were clearly locals and myself who was clearly a visitor.
Augusta's food is good too. I tried the brisket and it was enjoyable.
Overall this place might not be worth the drive to some people based out of STL but on a nice sunny day during "tourist season" it is well worth the trip.

This was trip number 1 a work outing in that was to include a session at the Mt. Pleasant winery. Well, they dont have beer, but the brewery carries all the local Augusta wines, so we talked the boss into the brewery. Excellent! Now Im happy too. I was a little surprised by the brewery its like a Caribbean outdoor bar. Has overhead ceiling fans and a nice view from its hillside location. An inside room (small) is also available, but that defeats the purpose, right?
A lunch menu looked inviting, will try it on the return and report. Everyone enjoyed the brews (Blonde, PA & IPA) (and some enjoyed local wines). Grabbed a bomber of 150 Pilsener for $5 on the way out.
No reviews at this time, we were too busy yakking and enjoying the scenery. Currently, the beer is actual brewed in Washington, but they hope to expand soon and move the brewing onsite

Off the I-44 super slab across the Missouri River at Washington and winding along the Katy Trail on Rt. 94 - small signs "Brewery" route you through Augusta. Found the offering different than the 8 brews I tried the previous day at Square in St. Louis. Fortunately they had the same Belgian Whit Ale. The Stout was nice but very different from the Imperial Stout at Square One. Staff was friendly and the food was very well done and served quickly. 5 brews were on tap and the menu offered suggestions for pairing them with their food items.
I plan on loading up some bikes and starting east on Katy Trail and making this the final destination. If your comming from St. Louis it is close to I-65 @ Weldon Springs then follow Rt. 94. I have heard that they will start offering bombers but as of May '07 none are available.
I recommend a trip to Augusta - plenty of winerys for those non beer lovers.

While enjoying a fall drive through the bucolic Missouri River valley, we stopped to see downtown Augusta, and I saw a sign for the brewpub and we decided to have a quick pint.
The outdoor bar is small but charming, and inside there were a few tables as well. The 1856 IPA was good, but not a stellar product, in my opinion. My wife was quite pleased with her Hyde Park Irish Stout.
The late-October weather was delightful, and the view of the river while outside makes Augusta Brewing a nice place to enjoy a pint.

Quite a hike from metro StL, but not impossible. A few beers were on tap in the beautiful beer garden overlooking the green hills of Missouri win...err...beer country. Between that an entering through a walkway covered with hop vines this place is quite cool.
The maibock is the best I've had from them so far, but the pale is quite nice as well. They could benefit from more tap space and more rotating seasonals, not to mention a few outside the box brews, as well.
I ordered a bratwust that came cooked just about right with plenty of toppings on a toasted bun.
A nice day trip from the city.

I ordered a sampler here and sat outside. The rolling hills, tall grass, and wooded areas of the region were nice and the gentle warm breeze gave this place a perfect atmosphere score. The quality I found better than average to good, and the server was pleasant. Selection was ok, although I had hoped to try a few of their bottles selection I looked at. I did not try any food. If I'm in the area, I think I would stop for the atmosphere alone... it was not Pelican Brewery in Pacific City, but it was about the best one could hope for in the Missouri.

Nice place to stop in Augusta. The beer garden is situated on a hill along the KATY trail. This reminds me of a typical German Beer Garden with tables set up under the trees. There is a bar and covered patio area where you can order your beers. They have about 7-8 beers on tap to choose from. They also have a menu of pub fare to accompany the beers. The people are friendly and service is quite good. This is a nice change of pace stop, if you are visiting some of the wineries in the area. This is a good place to visit on a hot sunny day.

Only the patio was open during my visit today, so that's all upon which I can report. It consists of a big U-shaped bar surrounded by six or so tables, all under a permanent roof. There are quite a few tables scattered throughout a gravelled garden area, with a nice mix of sun and shade.
Five beers and one root beer were on offer, all brewed in house. The selection avoided the nebulous blonde and amber designations, and consisted of Green Tree (a Kolsch according the well-informed bartender), Tannhauser Pale Ale, Hyde Park Stout, Austiner Maibock, Augusta Hefeweisen, and Rocket Root Beer. The Tannhauser and Green Tree were available bottled for carryout.
The lunch menu was small, but definitely beer-friendly. I had a Bavarian Pretzel with some wicked homemade whole grain horseradish mustard, and a beer braised brat, that came with home-brewed saurkraut.
The patio is perched on a bluff that overlooks the Katy Trail bike path, and has beautiful views across the vast Missouri River Valley. Mercifully, a cool breeze was blowing throughout, although the covered portion of the patio provided lots of ceiling fans to help as well.

Stopped in after a drive through the Missouri hill country to view the Autumn leaves. Beers are similar to what you will find at Square One Brewery, but without as big of a selection. I really like the atmoshpere of the place. People were listening to live music that was being placed outside on the side of a hill. The food was decent, but nothing to rave about. You have to go up to the couter to order as there is no wait staff. I would highly recommend this place for a day trip or weekend getaway. There are also many wineries in the area, and the brewpub serves some of the local wines.
