Public House Brewing Company St. James Taproom
St. James Winery
After years of researching and developing small-batch beers released only on draft in our Rolla Brewpub, we are sharing our findings in a new line, complete with new packaging. This limited release beer line called the CampusWerk Series gives more people accessibility to flavors only Rolla-area beer enthusiasts previously enjoyed.
The first of four beers in the series is releasing on Wednesday, April 5 at 5:30 p.m. at the Rolla Brewpub and St. James Taproom. Called Soest Road circa 1995, this beer is a Belgian-style Dubbel coming in at 6.5% ABV. Individual bottles and 4-packs will be available for purchase. Josh Stacy will be Rolla and Josh Goodridge will be in St. James signing bottles.
Soest Road is where Public House Brewing Company cofounder Josh Stacy grew up learning about beer and the brewing process with his home-brewing family. This brew galvanized Stacy’s passion for craft beer. Rich and malty, with hints of caramel and dried fruit, he may have polished off an entire keg by himself. But he swears it wasn’t in one sitting.
The CampusWerks Series represents the results of an innovative partnership with the brewery’s next-door neighbors at St. James Winery. Combining two award-winning fermentation approaches, we inspire each other and work together to develop flavor profiles in craft beverages that are thoughtful, local and sustainable.
Our Fermentation Campus is like a cross between an artist’s workshop and a technology think tank. It’s a place to elevate our thinking and open our minds to new levels of learning and understanding. It’s where research, development, creativity and inspiration flow together into something amazing to drink.
For the sixth year in a row, we are hosting the American Homebrewers Association Rally (please RSVP)!
Join us on Saturday, April 8 from 1 – 4 p.m. at the St. James Taproom. Enjoy our beer samples and meet the brew staff. Take a VIP brewery tour and meet other local homebrewers. AHA members get in free. If you are not a member, you can join at the event for a discounted rate.
NEW! For the first time, Public House Brewing Company and the MASH Club are holding an inaugural Homebrew Competition in conjunction with the AHA Rally.
The competition is free and open to anyone, regardless of homebrew club affiliation. We encourage you to review the rules and enter – the registration form is on the last page.
With beer or wine at every mile, we can’t think of a better reason to run in a vineyard! Public House Brewing Company and St. James Winery are hosting their Grapes and Grain Fun Run on Saturday, April 8, 2017 at 10 a.m. at the St. James Vineyard Cottage in St. James, Mo. Registration for participants is $25 per person.
Run or walk the 5K (3.1 miles) off-road path surrounded by the beauty of the St. James Winery vineyards and farm. For liquid encouragement throughout the race, enjoy small pours of wine or beer at miles one and two. At the finish line, celebrate your success with a commemorative glass full glass of wine or beer! Dogs are welcome on the course, but owners are responsible for keeping them on a leash and cleaning up after them.
Bring your blankets and chairs to stay after the race to listen to live music by upbeat soloist Hey Dave from 11-2 p.m. We’ll have yard games to play. Picnic food kits and beverages will also be available to purchase.
Proceeds from the Grapes and Grain Fun Run benefit the Friendship School House Foundation, an organization dedicated to engaging and educating the Missouri craft beverage industry and local community on sustainability best practices.
April’s Brewer’s Stash releasing on Tuesday, April 11 at the Rolla Brewpub at 5:30 p.m. is packing a punch.
This Black IPA is coming in at 8.9% ABV and contains the dryness, hop-forward balance, and flavor characteristics you expect from an American IPA, only darker in color but without roasted flavors.
You’ll get hints of grapefruit, melon and citrus from the hops, and the malt flavor is clean. It’s a REMIX, because our brewer Craig Richardson altered the original recipe by drying hopping it with big doses of Amarillo and Citra hops.
There’s no better place to enjoy wine, hard cider or beer than in The Gardens at St. James! We invite you to join us and St. James Winery for our Opening Day at the Gardens on Saturday, April 22 from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Relax with live music all day in this beautifully landscaped outdoor seating area located between the winery and brewery. Try our new summer wines and beer before they are available in stores, get competitive with our lawn games, take a complimentary tour and enjoy our locally sourced foods.
Winemaking, farming, food and coming together for community events have a long history in the St. James area. Known locally as the Meramec Highlands, our region is also fondly known as “Little Italy of the Ozarks” thanks to the establishment of an Italian settlement here more than a century ago.
Join St. James Winery and Public House Brewing Company as we celebrate the area’s Italian heritage at our Little Italy of the Ozarks Festival on Friday, May 19 and Saturday, May 20, 2017 at The Gardens.
In addition to many entertaining activities, the two-day festival ends on Saturday with a ticketed Traditional Rosati-style Spaghetti Dinner ($10 per ticket) under an outdoor tent where you’ll feel like part of the family.

All aboard! Hop the Frisco!
This beer is named after Frisco 1501, a steam engine that rumbled down the Frisco Railroad line through Rolla, Mo., where our brewery was founded.
This California Common style beer originated in San Francisco during the Gold Rush era. For this copper-colored beer, we use a lager yeast and ferment it at warmer ale temperatures to yield a unique flavor and mouthfeel. It’s lightly fruity with interesting toasty and caramel flavors, all while showcasing rustic, traditional American hop characteristics.
It’s beer for those who work as hard as the steam engines and people who forged our nation.
Malt: Pale Ale, Caramunich, Caramel malt
Hops: Northern Brewer, Cascade
To commemorate our 6th anniversary, we are releasing another limted beer and it's a big one! Our Barley Wine Ale comes in at 10.5% ABV and ages very well.
With complex and intense flavor, this full-bodied winter warmer is perfect for sipping by the fire. It has a pleasant sweet dried fruit and caramel character balanced by hop bitterness.
Pick up your 750 mL bottle (or bottles) at the Rolla Brewpub or St. James Taproom.
Malt: Pale Ale, Caramel 60 and Caramel 120
Hops: Millennium and Crystal
NOTE: There are still some bottles left at the Rolla Brewpub and St. James Taproom! Get one before they are gone!
We are honored that our Revelation Stout won a silver at the Best of Craft Beer Awards in the classic Irish-style dry stout category. Cheers! Here’s the list of winners.
