After suffering from an electrical fire in June, Ferguson Brewing Company is finally getting back on track. More than $11,000 in support was raised from the craft beer lovers and community. With most of its beers lost in the fire, the five-year-old brewery has begun brewing its first batches of Pecan Brown Ale. As reported by Feast, Ferguson Brewing still has yet to reopen for business, but will begin filling growlers on Fridays from 3-6pm. 418 S. Florissant Road, Ferguson
