Tower Grove South Gets Alpha Brewing Co.
ST. LOUIS, MO/May 6, 2017 (STLRestaurant.News) Beer aficionados were thrilled when in April of 2013 Alpha Brewing Co. made its home at 1409 Washington Avenue in Downtown St. Louis. Owner/Head Brewer, Derrick Langeneckert, made the decision to open the brewery and tasting room because of his love of beer, and his passion for everything from the menu to the artisan taps.
The result was an extremely popular hang-out and quiet refuge just off bustling Washington Avenue for those who just love beer. Now, 4 years later, the brew master is at it again opening a second location in late fall. “We’ve closed on the building, ordered the equipment and construction has started,” said Langeneckert.
This second Alpha Brewing Company will be located in the popular Tower Grove South area at 4325-4326 Flyer Avenue. The company is investing approximately $2 million into the 13,000-square-foot space that will house a 15-barrel system capable of brewing up to 10,000 barrels. They plan to produce 1,000 barrels in the first full year of production. The brewery’s Washington Avenue downtown facility currently produces 200 barrels annually.
Alpha Brewing is known by locals as a high quality beer production company that distributes its own product, and has beer on tap at Mangia Italiano, Foam, Heavy Anchor, and West End Pub. The second Alpha location will feature a taproom with 100 seats inside and a 200-seat Biergarten outside. There will also be a kitchen, and plans to partner with a local restaurant for food service. The official opening date is scheduled for this November.
