PaPPos Pizzeria and Microbrewery In Midtown Closes
ST. LOUIS, MO/May 10, 2017 (STLRestaurant.News) PaPPos Pizzeria – It all happened kind of suddenly and the announcement was made on the restaurant and microbrewery’s Facebook page. That’s the sad news that PaPPo’s pizzeria and microbrewery, located at 3690 Forest Park Avenue, was planning to close its doors. It’s another small Midtown business that bit the dust.
PaPPo’s Pizzeria first opened its doors in January 2016 in the former home of Six Row Brewing Company and before that, the original home of Falstaff Brewing Company. It was the third location of a concept that began four years earlier in Springfield, Missouri. Last Sunday they served their very last slice of pizza and beer.
The post on Facebook read, “Even though our revenues were gradually increasing, it was not sustainable, and we will be looking at other options in the St. Louis area.” The post continues, “We are also looking at options to continue to brew our PaPPo’s beers. We want to thank all of our loyal customers. We have made many new friends and will forever be grateful for the support.”
Many PaPPo’s diners and Facebook followers were quick to respond with their disappointment, praising the restaurant for its pizza, cookies, pies and very friendly staff. According to the post, the owners will continue to look at options to continue brewing its beers.
PaPPo’s follows in the footsteps of another brewery trying to make it in St. Louis’ crowded craft beer market, Standard Brewing Company which closed at the end of last month. The original PaPPo’s in Springfield, Mo., and a second in Osage Beach remain open.
