Today marks one year in business for the team at Wellspent Brewing in midtown St. Louis, and they are celebrating with a party. Bolyard’s Meat and Provisions will be slinging delicious food while Kyle Kohlmorgren and team, tap some very special beers! They’ll have a limited supply of commemorative glasses, door prizes, CAKE, and some other fun surprises!
Wellspent, which opened on March 2, 2018, is located in a beautiful, century-old building that was home to a movie theater a hundred years ago. There is still some evidence of the old movie theater at this new brewery. When you walk in, you’ll still find the marquees, fully restored to their former glory.
“It opened in 1907 and was called the Bonanza Theatre,” said Kyle Kohlmorgen, owner of Wellspent Brewing.
Where the theater’s balcony was, is now where the tanks are.
The actually found pieces of the balcony when they bought the building so they don’t think it was a whole lot of anything from when the movie theater closed till now.
Right now, the bread and butter at this brewery is beer with lower alcohol content. For example, the house Saison is 3.5%.
“I like the challenge of brewing a beer that has same alcohol by volume as a Bud Light or something but has a lot of more flavor,” he said.
The party begins at Noon. Wellspent Brewing Company is located at 2917 Olive Boulevard
