Twisted Roots Brewing in Midtown St. Louis suffers extensive damage from electrical fire

On Sunday, April 5, Twisted Roots Brewing notified their customers on Facebook of a fire in their pub located at 3690 Forest Park Ave. The initial investigation by the St. Louis Fire Department revealed that a bar refrigerator was most likely the cause of this electrical fire.


The Midtown brewpub was housed in a building with a history of brewing. The space was known for its communal-style tables, decadent burgers and local brews on tap.


The fire caused extensive damage inside the building and activated the sprinkler system, but no one was hurt in the fire, not even the pub’s four cats. Founders Kris Wangelin and Adam Patterson hope to reopen, but as they wait for insurance adjusters to evaluate the situation, they are unsure what this timeline will look like. They will be posting updates on their Facebook page in the coming months. 


The Twisted Roots family and their loyal community of customers are heart broken by the accident, but the co-owners continue to stay positive. In a Facebook message the team wrote, "We want to thank everyone for reaching out and we will hopefully be able to serve up some amazing beer and burgers in the future.”
