With the craft beer scene exploding across the Midwest and the recent opening of the beer emporium Flying Saucer (stay tuned for a first look), it has never been a better time to be a malt lover in St. Louis. As such, we thought we'd take this opportunity to revisit the best craft and microbreweries in this town built by beer.

Page through to see the finalists that we've nominated -- as well as our current top pick -- for "Best Craft Beer Maker" in 2013.

Civil Life Brewing Company
(3714 Holt Avenue)
The master brewers at Civil Life are all about nuance and subtlety in their brews. Jake Hafner and Dylan Mosely opened The Civil Life Brewing Company together in 2011 with an emphasis on craft. They specialize in session beers (reasonable alcohol by volume, for those not up on the jargon) like a terrific American brown ale and traditional British bitter. They write about each beer they produce in great detail on their website with the notion that these days, people don't know enough about what goes in to making a tasty pint.
