Public House Brews, Eats & Good Times
Head Brewer Matt Burkhardt and his crew have been blowing us away all year with one great beer after another. We’ve expanded our variety, and have seen some really cool things happen. First, the crew stays highly engaged in the process from concept to recipe, and through to brewing. Second, our taproom and pub regulars always have a new beer or variation to try. Third, new beers mean new options for folks across Missouri to try and to love.
Some of our favorite recent releases in the taproom and pub have been nitro versions of our core and seasonal beers. This year, taproom and pub visitors enjoyed a creamy nitro version of Peach Cream Ale, an extra smooth nitro Revelation. On the nitro tap now is the always delicious and roasty seasonal nitro Giddy Goat Coffee Milk Stout. We also had special limited releases of the beloved Hefeweizen and trial runs of an upcoming Pale Ale. In package and on draft, distributed across Missouri, we’ve added the German lager Headshot Helles, and a citrusy Hazy IPA. Check out the Beer Finder to see how many Public House brews are available on tap and in package in your local area.
Support has been incredible, and we are appreciative beyond words. You can be sure there’s much more to love coming from the great minds in our brewery. We’ll keep our website updated on the Beer Page. Stay tuned, and cheers!
It’s been a roller coaster of a year for our annual events. Oktoberfest was canceled, but all of our events held in The Gardens went on with some special accommodations to keep our staff and customers safe and healthy. The Gardens Opening, Grapes and Grain Run, Crush Festival, and the Pub 2 Pub Run all saw amazing support from our staff, local musicians, and patrons. We are very thankful for the expansive Gardens, providing much needed open-air space! Still coming up, we’ll host Harvest Festival this weekend in The Gardens, and the Holiday Pop Up at the Rolla Brewpub.
Community support continues to be a pillar in both Public House locations. We have been honored to host a variety of groups in our spaces and look forward to many more.
You can keep up on all of our upcoming events, including the live music schedule, on our Event Page. We’ll see you at the Pub and the Taproom soon!
We have to tip our hats and raise a pint to our Executive Chef Gabe and his team in St. James and also to Pub Manager Danyelle and her team at the Rolla Pub! The pandemic has taken the toughest toll on our kitchen crews. Between menu items being unavailable, to running on low team members, it’s been a challenge that we expect will continue. The menu at the Rolla Pub has remained mostly stable, while the menu at the St. James Taproom has seen many changes.
Most recently, we have moved to a model where we have food items made in the Pizza Kitchen available seven days a week and menu items made in our Taproom Kitchen available Friday at 4 pm through Sunday close. Soon after moving to that model, Chef Gabe went to work on expanding the menu items available from the Pizza Kitchen. Among our favorite additions are Bavarian Pretzel Sticks, Garden Salad, Pizzadilla, and the return of both the Deviled Egg Flight and the Ploughman’s Board. The full menu, including Moondance Farm burgers and our street-style tacos, is available all weekend.
We do our best to update the St. James menu items on our Website Page, but it’s always a good idea to check in on the pinned post on our Facebook page for the most up-to-date information. You’re also welcome to send us a private message on Facebook or give us a call ahead of your visit to the Taproom and The Gardens.
