Flat Branch Pub & Brewing

Serving great food and craft-brewed beers since 1994.

Columbia’s first Brewpub! Flat Branch Pub & Brewing offers a diverse menu as well as a variety of handcrafted beers. Dine in the upscale industrial setting of the restaurant, in the spacious outdoor beer garden or on Columbia’s largest bar. The fresh handmade food compliments the brews, but is delicious enough the stand on its own. Open daily, Flat Branch has been voted the Best Restaurant in Columbia 5 years in a row by the readers of Inside Columbia Magazine.

Flat Branch Pub & Brewing opened its doors on April 18, 1994 in historic downtown Columbia Missouri. The pub gets its name from a nearby creek which was the water source for Columbia’s first settlers. Flat Branch was Columbia’s first brewery since 1841. The pub occupies a 1927 brick warehouse with a curved, barrel-trussed roof that was once a Studebaker car dealership.

We offer a diverse menu as well as award-winning hand-crafted beers on tap. Enjoy your stay in the upscale industrial setting of our restaurant, on our spacious outdoor patio, or belly up to Columbia’s largest bar. Our fresh handmade food compliments our brews while still being delicious enough to stand on its own. Try traditional pub favorites like Catfish and Chips or Bratwurst and Kraut, or perhaps our signature Charbroiled Romaine Salad. Enjoy your meal with our in-house baked breads and desserts. After dinner, sip one of our many single malt scotches or small batch bourbons may be just the thing to wrap up an excellent evening.

The managers and staff at Flat Branch Pub & Brewing are committed to providing the best food, beer, service and value in the Midwest.
