Mother’s Brewing Co., Springfield, MO

Mother’s Brewing Company is located in an old building that started out as a bottling plant, morphed into a bakery, and finally came full circle to become a brewery.  The brewery is located in downtown Springfield at the intersection of Grant and Walnut.

Mother’s has a tasting room only, which has some homey touches, such as this lamp.

Mother’s brews a wide variety of beers, from blonde to wheat, to IPAs and darker beers.  We sampled several beers and settled on a half-pint each of Troublemaker, a wonderful double IPA and the Black Cherry Sherry Thang, a beer that was aged in sherry casks, and was a fruit happening.

The server who helped us was clearly knowledgeable about the beers and gave us samples based on our stated interests.  The atmosphere in the tasting room is pleasant, plus there is a yard area with several picnic tables.

The tasting room has limited hours, from Wednesday through Friday, and Saturday.  We were disappointed that we were not able to visit a second time.  We do plan to go back when we return to Springfield.
