The Scoop: Good News Brewing Co. to open in O’Fallon, MO

Chalk up another player on the area’s growing roster of craft breweries. Good News Brewing Co. is set to open at 330 Sonderen St., in north O’Fallon, Missouri. Co-owners Dan Tripp, Josh Miller and Matt Fair are planning for mid-June opening. The three have backgrounds as homebrewers, but this will be the first time they’ll brew on a commercial level.

Tripp said the brewery will start with five house styles: a Belgian white, a pale ale, an IPA, a brown ale and a stout. They are also planning on brewing an additional five rotating seasonal beers. Since they’re using a one-barrel system, Tripp said they hope to get creative and brew smaller batches of specialty beers like a dark chocolate pomegranate stout or an India pale lager.

Along with craft beers, the trio will also create and fire small pizzas made in a brick oven. Though the 40-seat tasting room is slated to open this summer, Good News’ won’t have its brewing license at that time. It could take another six to nine months, but since the partners are paying rent on the space, Tripp said they hope to connect with area breweries to provide beer for guest taps and possibly contract brew with them.

Eventually, Tripp said Good News plans to distribute its beers to area bars and start canning. “Our long-range goal is to make and sell as much beer as we can,” he said.
