ROCKWELL BEER COMPANY is set to break ground on St. Louis's newest craft brewery, located at 1320 South Vandeventer. The design envisions a fusion between the organic and industrial processes involved in the process of crafting beer. The project is a partnership of Rockwell Beer Company, Green Street St. Louis, TOKY, and JEMA.
The new brewery is also partnering with Gerard Craft's Niche Food Group; together they will provide an unparalleled culinary and craft beer experience.
The project was recently featured in NextSTL and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
