Prison Brews opened its doors on April 7, 2008 on the historic east side of Jefferson City at 305 Ash Street in what is historically known as Landwehr Dairy. The original building is circa 1895.

The 1904-05 City Directory lists L.H. Mueller, Horseshoer; Blacksmithing and Wagon Making; “For First Class Work Give Us A Trial,” at this address.

In 1923, the building was labeled a “Creamery” and by 1940, the building was labeled a “Dairy.”

During the early 1990’s, Sanning Electric owned and operated their business from this location.

Then in 2008 this building became the microbrewery and restaurant it is today!

Being so close to the historic old prison, it seemed fitting for a cool restaurant theme.

There have been many updates over the years but one thing remains, a casual and comfortable atmosphere where our guest or shall we say friends, can come and enjoy good food and hand crafted beers.

  • First time trying Prison Brews food and It was spot on with flavor and quality. The staff was very nice and professional. The restaurant was clean with some really nice decor on the walls. My only complaint would be the price of the meals. I understand and agree you pay for quality but it was a little pricey for a lunch style meal. However, I would recommend prison brews to anyone that wanted a good meal
  • Food is so good. The drinks are very good (I got the Go to Jail Ale and my mom got the lemon drop martini) both decent prices also. The decor was so neat! I found out about this place on an email I get through only in Missouri and I'm so happy I went. I will definitely be back.
