Technically not a brewpub, and technically I'm not Popeye - but finally made a trip to local brewer/winery Charleville (southwest of Ste Genevieve).
The main thing -Beers -grade B minus ( above-average overall but not spectactular)
The Hoptimistic IPA quite good. A new brew they tentatively are calling Double-Hop is real good. They do ok with the darker beers too but if only they could get at least some fizz/head to Tornado Alley and their Dorian Abbey. Their wheat beer I steer clear of as I do with most. Explicit APA good. Friend tried the pilsner and it must have been sad. All in all a good effort.
The place -Grade A simply great- you drive up windy gravel road for about a mile to get to it. Rustic country feel and nice older gent and crew (presumably owners) pulling the taps. No food cooked there, but has the typical assortment of cracker cheese sausage etc.
Typical tasting room inside with nice picnicky feel outside. A lot like neighboring Chaumette Winery but not as big (which apparantly you can make a 3/4 mile hike to sober up -and get more substantial food. A great place to waste an afternoon.
Designated driver probably required.
Crown Valley Winery looks like they have a substantial brewing operation going. We did not partake. Future stop.
