Public House Brewing Company beer garden

The Public House Brewing Company and St. James Winery have their beer and wine garden in full swing this year in St. James, Mo. It was technically open in the fall of last year, but this is the first really spring and summer it's been happening. What a place! A lot of businesses in Missouri seem to struggle with creating a nice, designed space with good food and drinks that is also fun and super relaxed. The folks at the Public House and St. James Winery have nailed it with this one.

Public House Brewing Company

I had the opportunity to photograph the grand opening of the Public House Brewing Company in St. James, Mo. last weekend. Whole hogs were cooked, the beer was flowing and live music filled the air, so do I need to say how awesome it was? This is a great spot with amazing beer, so check it out if you find yourself cruising by on I-44.
