Extra Sauce: In case you missed it…

Sunday, May 21st, 2017

It was a week of new looks for old favorites in the St. Louis dining scene. Here’s what went down, ICYMI…




1. After 14 years brewing in Ste. Genevieve, Charleville Brewing Co. has a second home in Lafayette Square. Charleville Brewing Co. & Tavern opened its 7-barrel brewery and restaurant at 2101 Chouteau Ave., on May 16.




2. The chef-owner of the recently shuttered Three Flags Tavern has landed a new job as executive chef at Herbie’s in Clayton. John O’Brien’s first day at the helm was May 17.




3. Turn, the breakfast and lunch spot from chef-owner David Kirkland, officially opened on May 7 on the first floor of the .ZACK building at 3224 Locust St. in Grand Center.




4. An old favorite is getting a new lease on life, thanks to the folks behind Grbic Restaurant. Lemmons by Grbic is slated to open on Wednesday, May 24, at 5800 Gravois Ave.




5. Six Mile Bridge Beer has joined the hop wave and released Mosaic IPA, the first in a series of single-hopped IPAs on draft this weekend at the Maryland Heights brewery.



DTWE: Mosaic IPA at Six Mile Bridge Beer

Friday, May 19th, 2017



If you’re sick of all my hop talk, well, too bad. It won’t slow down this summer for two reasons: one, hops are my favorite, and two, many local breweries are spectacularly showcasing the diverse and dynamic world of hops.

Cases in point: Schalfly’s SMaSH program is still rocking. 2nd Shift Brewing Co. brewer and hop whisperer Steve Crider is introducing more hoppy beers to his lineup. Perennial Artisan Ales continues to pop out experimental IPAs (look for IPA 16 to hit in the next few weeks). I cannot get enough of 4 Hands Brewing Co. Table IPA, its collaboration with Northeast-style pale ale producer Narrow Gauge Brewing Co., and Shared shows off its hop skills with its Proof of Concept series. Even malt-savvy Civil Life Brewing Co. is playing around with “excessive” hop usage in its American session ale.

Six Mile Bridge Beer has also joined the hop wave and will release the first in a series of single-hopped IPAs on draft this weekend at the Maryland Heights brewery. This juicy Northeast-style IPA is hopped with Mosaic, a Simcoe/Nugget hop hybrid that is used predominately for intense aromatics and easily one of my favorites to enjoy.

This hazy IPA presents itself with an intense aroma dominated by tropical fruit. As the beer opens a bit, the pineapple and papaya give way to a touch of bubble gum, ripe citrus, a little melon, and an ever so elegant waft of dankness. Super low bitterness and adequate alcohol (6.8-percent ABV) allow for ripe cantaloupe and grain to resonate on the palate. This beer is easily quaffable and a perfect warm weather offering. I look forward to more single-hopped IPAs in this series.

Guide to Beer 2017: Where Brewers Drink

Wednesday, March 1st, 2017



Brewers can drink their own beer all day. Here’s where they go when they’re off duty.

With a big group
“We like Basso or Three Kings in The Loop. We live in U. City, so Three Kings is usually where we’ll go with friends.” – Ryan Sherring, Six Mile Bridge brewmaster-co-owner

Neighborhood spot
Frailey’s Southtown Grill in South County. I know the owners – it’s more of a regular’s place. … For what you get, I think it’s the best bang for buck in St. Louis. And everyone who works there is great. It has that family feel to it.” – Brian Ilg, Kirkwood Station Brewing Company brewmaster

“My favorite spot would be Main Street in Edwardsville – there’s a couple good restaurants and bars. A go-to is Recess Brewing down there. It’s nice to have places within walking distance.” – Patrick Thirion, Peel Brewing Co. brewer-co-owner

Something other than beer
“This is probably going to be your weirdest answer, but my place is Pho Grand on South Grand to get their French iced coffee.” – Thirion

“If I want to get a decent whiskey, there’s a couple places I like to go: Montrey’s in Ferguson. It’s a cigar bar. It’s right by the brewhouse, so that one’s easy. And I enjoy Eclipse. You can get a decent drink, and it’s a cool atmosphere. And you can’t go wrong with Shaved Duck, or BBQ Saloon always has a good whiskey selection.” – Taylor Wright, Ferguson Brewing Co. head brewer

Day drinking
“For outside in summer, a great place is 21st Street Brewers Bar. Or Square One – they do a mean grilled cheese.” – Sherring

“Pretty much anywhere that has games – anywhere I can play bubble hockey, shuffleboard or darts. And iTap in Soulard is always a good day drinking spot because it’s not going to be overly busy – you can have good conversations.” – Wright

What I Do: Ryan and Lindsay Sherring at Six Mile Bridge Beer

Monday, January 4th, 2016



It’s a craft beer love story: A homebrewing South African boy falls for a St. Louis girl working in Cape Town. A few years and a wedding later, Ryan and Lindsay Sherring launched 021 Brewing in Cape Town. In 2014 they left it all behind and brought his brewing knowhow and her marketing savvy to launch Six Mile Bridge Beer in Maryland Heights.

How do the St. Louis and Cape Town brewing scenes compare?
RS: I don’t even think they are comparable. … I know that the market has matured since we’ve left, but even so, there are probably as many craft breweries in St. Louis as there are in all of South Africa right now.
LS: I like to compare it to craft beer in St. Louis in the early ’90s. There’s only a few players. It’s 20 years behind, and that’s just because there hasn’t been a market for it.

How did the St. Louis brewing community welcome you?
RS: South Africa is very cutthroat. Nobody shares any information. It’s each man for himself. When we got here, it was such a surprise because all of the sudden these people wanted to help us and to get involved. … Brian (Owens), the head brewer at O’Fallon Brewery, is a really busy guy, and he took two nights out of his week to help me fix up our bottling machine.
LS: It caught us by surprise because in Cape Town, we did approach other brewers to do collaboration beers and everyone was very: “Stay at arms length.” Here, the culture is very much: “A rising tide floats all ships.”

Why did you want to have a tasting room here?
RS: We were always going to be a production brewery. … (But we wanted) to be able to build relationships with our patrons.
LS: People come in and they ask what’s our next beer. People here want more because they have expanded palates, and they know more about the beer industry. … We didn’t really interact on a level where people wanted to know that much about the process in Cape Town.

Where did the name Six Mile Bridge come from?
RS: Sixmilebridge is a village (in Ireland) between two cities where people used to stop and rest for the night, stay at pubs to have a beer and meet new friends. I don’t think there’s a better medium for people to connect over than a drink. You have a beer, everybody relaxes, starts to talk and you start to build friendships. I think Six Mile Bridge encompasses that.

How has this business affected your relationship?
RS: Lindsay is highly competent. I’ve worked with some pretty smart people – I wouldn’t trust them with what Lindsay’s doing. She’s definitely the secret ingredient.
LS: When we are working 85- to 100-hour weeks … we get to do it together, and we’re passionate about it, and I think that’s what fuels us every day.

Sneak Peek: Frankly Sausages Food Truck

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015



Frankly Sausages has hit the brakes in Six Mile Bridge Beer‘s parking lot. Owners Bill and Jamie Cawthon have partnered with the Maryland Heights brewery located at 11841 Dorsett Road to serve house-made sausages to thirsty patrons starting this Friday, Dec. 4.

Six Mile Bridge has no kitchen and is open Thursday through Saturday. During operating hours, customers can place their orders with servers, who will run them to the food truck parked outside. Servers will then deliver the fresh-made sausages to the table.

The limited menu – three classic sausages, three rotating specialty sausages, hand-cut fries and dipping sauces – focuses on using as many local purveyors as possible. The all-beef hot dogs are made and smoked at Bolyard’s Meat & Provisions, while Buttonwood Farms supplies the chicken for the chicken sausage and the rolls are made at LaBonne Bouchée. Bill Cawthon, who used to serve as chef de cuisine at Cardwell’s, uses those same kitchen facilities to prepare his sausages and other house-made items.

Find Frankly Sausages Thursdays and Fridays from 5 to 11 p.m. and Saturdays from noon to 11 p.m. Here’s a sneak peek at what to expect when Frankly Sausages parks it outside Six Mile Bridge this Friday.

First Look: Six Mile Bridge in Maryland Heights

Tuesday, August 25th, 2015



Six Mile Bridge opened its doors Friday, Aug., 21, at 11841 Dorsett Road in Maryland Heights. As The Scoop reported in July, owners Ryan and Lindsay Sherring started brewing beer in Cape Town, South Africa before moving to St. Louis.

Though focused on distribution, Six Mile Bridge also has a 2,000-square-foot tasting room fronting its 4,000-square-foot brewing space. For now, the tasting room will offer popcorn for snacking, but the Sherrings hope to partner with local chefs on a food menu and open a kitchen soon.

The sleek industrial, high-ceilinged space boasts a glossy wood bar, a chalk art mural depicting the brewing process by local artist Sarah Doriani and ample seating to enjoy a pint. Six Mile Bridge is starting with three beers: an Irish red ale brewed with honey, a Bavarian hefeweizen with banana and light spice notes and a session IPA. Look for a stout this fall, as Six Mile Bridge slowly expands its offerings. Pull a pint at the bar, bring a growler home or look for its brews around town at local bars and restaurants.

Six Mile Bridge is open Fridays from 5 to 11 p.m. and Saturdays noon to 11 p.m. Here’s a first look at what to expect when you head to Maryland Heights:
