About STL Beer


St. Louis is a Beer City. Always has been, always will be. Brewing is in our DNA.

Home to over a hundred breweries in the years prior to Prohibition, the St. Louis area now boasts more breweries in operation than ever before in its long history; with several more in various stages of development.

The St. Louis Brewers Guild is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose civic and educational mission is to support and promote every brewery who calls the Greater St. Louis metropolitan area home. By supporting these breweries, the Guild in turn supports the vibrant local communities and economies that they serve.

The St. Louis Brewers Guild hosts a variety of fundraising events throughout the year including two signature beer festivals. Our annual Heritage Festival takes place in June beneath the Gateway Arch overlooking the mighty Mississippi River, and features over 50 local breweries, great food, and entertainment. The St. Louis Brewers Guild Halloween Party is a unique beer festival in historic Lafayette Park featuring a hayride with kegs, fortune telling, and costume contest.

STLbeer.org is your online resource for the latest and greatest in local beer news, brews, and events, so you always have what you are looking for at your fingertips. Whether you are planning a trip to the Lou, are a local, or just passing through, we will make it easier to map out your quest for the perfect pour.

Thank you for supporting STL Beer!

A lot of folks know next to nothing about the two-hundred-plus-year history of brewing in their hometown. Too bad. This is a fascinating story that should interest everyone, including those who don’t consider themselves connoisseurs of beer.
