Maryland Heights Brewpub, Standard Brewing, Calling it Quits
Maryland Heights, MO/April 22, 2017 (STLRestaurant.News) – The gnarly cycle of the restaurant industry has claimed another victim. After less than two years at 12322 Dorsett Road in Maryland Heights, the Standard Brewing Company has announced plans to close at the end of the month. The brewpub inside the old Fuddruckers had been open since September 2015.
The announcement was made Wednesday night on the SBC Facebook page. The post read:
It comes with great sadness that Standard Brewing Company will be pouring it’s (sic) last pint Sunday April 30th. We want to thank everyone that has supported us during our journey. Please come see us one last time and have a beer with us (or several). We have plenty of beer, so we are offering $10 growler fills every day till the end. We’ll also be running several specials. We will be open during our normal business hours until May 1st. Hope to see you all soon.
The Standard Brewing Family
Mug Club members should expect a special email regarding the closing.
Before opening SBC, Jeff Harlan and Jeff “Jonesy” Jones had owned a brew-it-yourself store called J2 in Chesterfield. At SBC, Jones is the brew-master with Harlan focusing more on the business and front of house. The brewpub offers eight to twelve of their own hand-crafted beers on tap. Some of the varieties offered regularly include a light, German-style Hefeweizen to a robust Dry Irish Stout, plus an American blonde ale, a Belgian tripel, and two IPAs. They also made special small-batch offerings. In January 2016, Harlan and Jones tapped Executive Chef Wade Waller (Zydaco Blues, Eleven Eleven Mississippi, Vin de Set, Cleveland-Heath) to elevate their pizza-driven menu, and create beer-infused dishes to accompany their what’s on tap.
No details about what’s behind the closing have been forthcoming. But the recent closure of a nearby hotel may have negatively affected business at the brewpub which is situated in a somewhat difficult to access location just west of I-270.
Standard Brewing Company will be open Tuesday – Thursday from 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., Fridays from 4:00 p.m. to midnight, Saturdays from noon to midnight, and Sundays from noon to 8:00 p.m. through Sunday, April 30, 2017.
