The middle of nowhere never tasted so good
Welcome to Wages Brewing Company
Wages Brewing Company and Taproom (since 2016) is West Plains first craft beer brewery, and our taproom is the neighborhood social house.
Enjoy our selection of handcrafted beers & sodas & kombucha, local wines, and top shelf spirits while chatting with friends or family or playing our collection of table top games in our relaxed & inviting taproom. While we have a bar, we are not a bar. We are something more, just for you!
One visit to our taproom, and you’ll know why we say, the middle of nowhere never tasted so good! See our upcoming events below, or get full details of these and more on our Facebook events page!
New in 2020! We’re working with Executive Chef Ryan Van Winkle’s The Chef’s Table to bring you full-time dinner service every evening we’re open from 5 to 9 PM. Visit our menu page to see what’s he’s serving (which includes new dinner specials every Friday and Saturday).
NOTE: Sometimes there are exceptions such as when we bring in food trucks and guest chefs. Be sure to check our Facebook page or our calendar to see what’s next!
At the brewery, we have a fun atmosphere where you can feel comfortable with no loud TVs, no smoky bar, just good clean craft beer loving fun and social interaction!
We’ve got trivia, CAH, board games, and playing cards available. Feel free to BYOGames. Wi-Fi is free and fast! Our walls are decorated with local artwork and photos from our humble beginnings.

Brews and More
We have three year round selections (Whatknot Ale, Good Mornin’ Oatmeal Stout, and Landlocked IPA), and rotate our other six drafts with beers like Front Porch Porter, Lemongrass Wheatknot, Midnight Saison, Mississipecan Brown, Blackberry Whatknot, Lavender Saison, all sorts of IPAs (hazy, rye, black, session, experimental, etc) and so much more!
We sometimes bring in guest taps when we can get special releases of awesome. We also maintain a hand picked guest bottle list. We only carry stuff that we don’t make ourselves and that we know is awesome (especially sours, brett beers, imperial this-and-thats, and seasonals). Virtually every guest tap or bottle we carry is unavailable anywhere else in the area! We even carry local wines, ciders, and a limited selection of spirits so everyone can have a great time at our taproom.
We run monthly chef beer dinners and occasional “pop-up” chef weekends and sometimes bring in food trucks. Be sure to check our Facebook events for what’s coming up.
Enjoy our outdoor biergarten including custom bag toss game!
Check our Facebook for our current events including live music, game nights, community events, and too much more to list here.
In June 2018, we added our permanent outdoor biergarten! We also signed with Great Rivers Distributing so we send a limited number of kegs out to restaurants, local bars, and festivals. Keep your eyes peeled for our “green handle”! Our next goals are expand our brew production to better service our Ozarks!
Whether it’s new beers, live music, dinner, or games, there’s always something fun happening at Wages Brewing!
