The Best Breweries in the St. Louis Area, According to Yelp [PHOTOS]

Face it, we all know St. Louis loves to drink. It's what makes us, well, us. That and a bunch of other little quirks.

We are also home to some of the finest breweries, coincidentally enough. Maybe they're meeting the need, maybe it's all just luck, but either way we're grateful.  At the RFT, we've kept up on our brewery news (if you missed any, the best place to check out is our food editor Cheryl Baehr's reviews) but we were wondering what the rest of St. Louis thinks.

Thanks to Yelp, we can peer right into the minds of St. Louisans and tourists, so we rounded up the highest rated breweries on the list and put them here.
