Crush Festival

Crush Festival is Saturday, August 20, 2022, in The Gardens at Public House Brewing Company and St. James Winery!


Crush Festival, the annual celebration of the grape harvest season in Missouri, is a fun-filled day in The Gardens. Enjoy friendly competition with an old-fashioned grape stomp out front, and foot-stomping live, local music in the beautifully landscaped beer and wine garden to kick off this most wonderful time of the year. Next, our friends at Independent Stave Company will wow us with a live Cooperage demonstration. Then, cool down with the St. James Winery team for a guided tour of the wine cellar. 


Our full MENU will be available – food and drink to keep you and your group going all day. The freshest craft beer, local spirits, and St. James Winery wine slushes for adults, soft drinks & more for the kids. Hand-made brick oven pizzas, burgers, salads & more – using many locally sourced ingredients – are guaranteed to satisfy. The event will kick off at 11:00 am and we’ll celebrate til the sun goes down!


The event is free to attend, family-friendly, and we welcome your leashed pets. Grape harvest season is an exciting time in Missouri, and we’re thrilled to kick it off with you during this annual celebration. We look forward to seeing you there!

Begin the day with an old-fashioned grape stomp, to be held in the parking lot from 11 am – 3 pm. Then, enjoy entertainment, a cold drink, and a bite to eat in The Gardens. Local musician Justyn Moreland performs live from Noon – 2 pm. From 2 pm – 3 pm, our friends at Independent Stave Company take center stage for a live cooperage demo.
