In his hometown of Festus, Missouri, brewing aficionado Denny Foster partnered with his father, Barry, to open up the first commercial brewery in Jefferson County in more than 120 years. Main & Mill Brewing Co., named for the renovated building’s intersection on the town’s historic Main Street, features a rustic dining room and patio as well as a second-story tasting room and bar.

Drawing from his experience as a brewing production manager at Crown Valley Brewery & Distilling in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri, Denny concocts a variety of his own rotating draft selections in the Main & Mill brewhouse including light, dark, hoppy and high-alcohol options.

Look for rotating and seasonal selections such as a citrusy double IPA and a morning-session stout made with coffee from Mississippi Mud Coffee, locally produced maple syrup and vanilla. A Belgian wheat beer features freshly zested oranges and coriander. And the green-chile ale – a concoction that Denny calls a gateway beer for those who might not be familiar with craft beer yet – features a light brew highlighted by a fresh serrano-pepper aroma.
