Exit 6 Pub and Brewery (5505 Highway N, St Charles; 636-244-4343) Located in St. Charles, the Exit 6 "nanobrewery" is somewhat off the beaten path for St. Louis beer devotees, but it's well worth the drive. Jeff Britton, a devout homebrewer, opened Exit 6 in the summer of 2011 as a place for people to come drink beer from all over, as well as try the five beers made in-house. Britton has a creative side that comes out in his house brews like Iced Oatmeal Cookie (it seriously tastes like a cookie) and Razmanian Devil (flavored with raspberries and jalapeños). Their tap line changes seasonally, so check the site if there's something specific you're dying to try. We recommend all of them, though.

Perennial Artisan Ales (8125 Michigan Avenue; 314-631-7300) Owner and Brewmaster Phil Wymore opened Perennial in 2011 after relocating from Chicago with the intent of brewing beer for the adventurous drinker. Perennial's beers are influenced largely by Belgian and American craft styles, but Wymore likes to mix it up by adding fruit, spices or even tea to his brews. Try the "Saison de Lis," a Belgian-style saison brewed with chamomile flowers in honor of Wymore's daughter or the seasonal "Peace Offering" made with maple roasted butternut squash from Yellowtree Farm.
