Simply beer you’ll love. In this age of hipsters and microbreweries, does it ever feel like some brewers are creating weird concoctions just for the sake of being different?

Kick back with a cold one. This country was built on hard work. And after a long day on the job, is there anything better than an ice cold brew to wash away the stress of the day? If you’re in Southern Missouri, West Plains to be exact, there’s only one place you’ll want to head for that after-work reward: Wages Brewing Company and Taproom. Less than a year old, Wages Brewing opened their doors in August 2016 with the mission of providing great beers in an inviting atmosphere.
