A Salty Salute to Iron Barley

Not fake not pretentious not what you'd expect not contrived not mundane not formulaic not always affordable not cookie cutter not fashionable not chic not a fad not always quick

Real like a warm fire burning with the faint smell of smoke but no flame
Real like the E minor chord but not too loud
Real like calling a Busch over a PBR
Real like the neighborhood gathering place for all



  1. Ha. I like this tribute. Haven't been there in a while but definitely want to make a visit soon.

  2. ^This place is a St. Louis treasure. For whatever reason, it reminds me of a cozy cross section of everyone that lives in South City. My wife and I liken this place to a South City version of the Northern Exposure settings.
