St. Louis craft beer welcomes more and more breweries.
Former RFT staff writer Kristen Hinman, whose desk was located directly next to Gut Check International Headquarters, has an article in the Washington Post about the growth of the beer scene in St. Louis beyond Anheuser-Busch.

Hinman gives props to several local craft breweries, including Six Row Brewing Company, Square One Brewery & Distillery, the Stable, Morgan Street Brewery and, of course, Schlafly.

She also pays a visit to A Civil Life, the soon-to-debut brewery from former 33 Wine Shop & Tasting Bar owner Jake Hafner:
"I feel like beer's where wine was nine years ago when I got into that business," Hafner told me. "There's so much interest in craft beer now, and so many places we can go with it. There's no question it can work in St. Louis. It's not territorial at all. If anything, everybody really wants everyone else to succeed."
