Just A Taste


Education poured - one glass at a time. Discover your drink.

Why "Just A Taste?" Because it takes time and experience to discover what delights an individual palette. We provide the time and experience necessary to open the door for the individual to come in, have Just A Taste, and discover their delight. 

Our Chef, Derek Shultz, has brought the same passion we show for beverages to our food menu.  He carefully crafts the menu to reflect the season and balance harmoniously with our glass list.  From a simple cheeseboard to a full five-course meal, there is always something new and exciting to enjoy.  Stop in for dinner, or Just A Taste!

 

Originally built in 1907 in the spirit of the St. Louis World's Fair, our newly renovated event space can accommodate a variety of special occasions. From business happy hours to wedding receptions, our space and staff is here to meet the needs required for your occasion.

Eric taylor

Owner, Sommelier, Winemaker

Eric's interest in wine grew from his love of family history. With an appreciation for all things grape in his blood, it began as a way to stay connected to his roots. His interest grew from hobby to passion after working for a wine shop in the Kansas City area, and has now manifested itself into an ability to cultivate an expansive wine list, as well as the knack for finding a perfect pairing for whatever is in front of you.

Casey stuck

owner, man of beer, Mazer (Mead Maker)

Casey displayed an early interest in brewing his own mead, an idea that grew stronger after being exposed to them at the Kansas City Renaissance Festival. While Eric took his first shot at wine-making in the basement of his house in Kansas City, Casey began to turn the ideas of a young man into what has become a prize-winning endeavor. Now, his knowledge of mead has translated into an ability to craft a stellar beer list, from draft to bottle.
