First Look: Good News Brewing in O’Fallon, Mo.

Friday, August 4th, 2017

The St. Louis craft beer boom continues, and it’s finally starting to take root out west. Case in point: Good News Brewing Co., which opened a brewpub in mid-July at 330 Sonderen St., in O’Fallon, Missouri.

As The Scoop reported in January, co-owners Dan Tripp, Josh Miller and Matt Fair announced they would turn their homebrewing hobby into a full-time business venture.

Good News brews 10 different beers from a crisp Citra Wheat IPA to an earthy Smoked Cherrywood Wheat. The brewery utilizes a one-barrel system, so what’s on tap changes up often and beers must be enjoyed onsite (no growlers for now). Several guest taps are also available, and customers can try all of the offerings by the pint, 10-ounce glass or 4-ounce sampler.

The Good News folks are tightly focused on their mission of brewing beer, so the food menu is limited to a handful of rotating personal pizzas cooked in brick oven on a sourdough crust made daily in-house. No appetizers, no kid’s menu and no takeout. “We’re a brewery that makes pizza,” Tripp said.

Good News seats 44 inside, including bar seats and communal tables, and the covered, pet-friendly patio boasts 11 picnic tables for al fresco dining and imbibing.

Good News is open Wednesday and Thursday from 4 to 9 p.m., Friday from 4 to 10 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Take a first look at what to expect from O’Fallon’s newest brewery:

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

Wednesday, January 18th, 2017

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.
