With St. Louis’ new love affair with microbreweries, it is nice to see the far south-side of the City is not being left out of the fun. Since September 2011, Perennial Artisan Ales has been brewing beer in the former Coca-Cola syrup plant at 8125 S Michigan in the Patch Neighborhood (near Carondelet). The redeveloped industrial plant is now a $27 million mixed-use development, rebranded as The Temtor.
All brewing takes place on site, with beer available at both their tasting room and at many local bars. The folks at Perennial seem to love to get creative. The have a interesting rotating cast of brews to go along with mainstay styles. Here is how Perennial phrases it:
Our philosophy is to brew beer with the adventurous craft beer drinker in mind—focusing on hand-crafted, small batches of beer, using local, seasonal and organic ingredients as much as possible.
A welcome addition to the local microbrewery lineup. Visit Perennial Artisan Ales website for more information on the brewery. For a closer look at the interior of Perennial, check out the picture gallery below.
