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 & soda, hard to find guest bottles, 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, so bring the whole family!

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!

Atmosphere
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.




Visit our Taproom

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, various IPAs (Rye, Black, session, 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.

Food
You are welcome to BYOFood from home or from one of West Plains’ selection of restaurants. We have food trucks parking out front many Fridays and Saturdays (see Facebook), not to mention more and more we have inside dinner service and monthly chef beer dinners!

Biergarten
Enjoy our outdoor biergarten including custom bag toss game!

Check our Facebook for our current events including food trucks, live music, game nights, and more.

What’s Next?
In June 2018, we added our permanent outdoor biergarten! We also signed with Great Rivers Distributing so we can start sending a limited number of kegs out to restaurants, local bars, and festivals. Keep your eyes peeled for our “green handle”! Our next goals are to get food on a more regular basis and expand our brew production to better service our Ozarks!

Whether it’s new beers, live music, food trucks, or games, there’s always something fun happening at Wages Brewing!
