Back in November when Laurie and I were in the St. Louis area visiting her family, I also made plans to meet for lunch with my best man from our wedding and his wife. Although I’ve been in touch via email, they’d lived out of the country for a long time and we hadn’t seen them for about 34 years!
We’d agreed to meet for lunch at the Trailhead Brewing Company in St. Charles Missouri. The only problem is that I got my dates mixed up with the days of the week…so our reunion never happened. As the popular phrase goes these days…”My Bad!” Yep, I blew that one…
Laurie and I still had to have lunch and since we’d been waiting at the Trailhead Brewing Company for a while, why shop around for a different place!
As you can see from the preceding photos, this is a big brewery and restaurant with lots of wood, metal and brick…sort of a ‘woodsy’ warm industrial look. We thought that it was an attractive casual place. This restaurant is open daily for lunch and dinner. It is a brewery as well and they have 6 of their own beers on tap.
Feeling a little stupid about blowing the reunion date, I ordered a lunch intended to make me feel better! This was my Grilled Ribeye Sandwich. ($11.99) The ribeye steak was grilled with melted Asiago and Parmesan cheese and served on an Onion Hoagie Roll. I opted for a plain roll and ordered coleslaw for my side. The cheese and steak combination worked well together and the coleslaw was OK too.
Laurie decided that she wasn’t all that hungry so she ordered the Half Sandwich and Soup. ($8.99) She went with the Club Sandwich and the Beer Cheese Soup. With the rich beer cheese soup, it was a satisfying and filling lunch.
I’m sure that we’ll eventually return to the Trailhead Brewery Company for another lunch, hopefully to connect again with my best man! The food was better than average and the ambiance was a couple of steps above the average brew house restaurant.
