Valley Park will get its first brewery, Mackenzie Brewing, on Memorial Day

Thursday, March 8th, 2018



A strip mall in Valley Park will soon be home to a new craft brewery. According to owner Jeffrey Doss, Mackenzie Brewing Co. should pour beer around Memorial Day at 932 Meramec Station Road.

While he personally leans toward Belgian and high-gravity brews, Doss said Mackenzie will debut with a sessionable array that will most likely include a couple of IPAs, an American wheat, a French saison and possibly a red ale, a brown ale, a wee heavy and a double IPA.

Doss, who got his start as a homebrewer, said the brewery has been years in the planning. He and his brother, who is no longer with the company, put the first business plan together in 2011. Doss named the brewery after his niece.

“We’ve been on the search for the right location for a long, long time,” Doss said. “We’ve been in and out of two failed leases.”

Capacity-wise, the brewery will have a 3-barrel system, and Doss said he plans to brew two to three times per week, depending on demand. Initially, there won’t be any distribution – all of the beers will be available on tap and onsite – and there also won’t be a kitchen, but patrons are welcome to bring in their own eats or have food delivered.
