CHILLAX - Craft Beer Specialty Store and Tap Room

Mar 24, 2022 01:58PM ● By Darian Kaulahao
Chillax Tap & Co, the Western St.Charles Chamber of Commerce“New Business of the Year”located in the fast-growing city of Wentzville, isn’t just a place to drink beer. Thanks to owners Archie and Ashley Harmon, it’s a unique space that always has something for everyone.

 A typical tap room has hop-a-liciousness from only one brewery.But Chillax, born of Archie’s long-time interest in the beverage, brings together craft beer from all over the states and even other countries.

Archie brewed his own independently for many years before realizing that it was meant to be more than a hobby; it was a calling that he genuinely wanted to pursue. His wife, Ashley, supported the idea right away, and together, they began to explore the world of beer.

They delivered on their concept that was part tap room, part carry out, and all welcoming. So when Archie and Ashley opened their doors on March7th, 2020, the goal was simple: to create a comfortable space for patrons to relax and enjoy phenomenal local, national, and even international beer in Wentzville.

Chillax isn’t your run-of-the-mill brewery. It isn’t a brewery at all. It is 30 rotating taps from Missouri and all over the country with a surprise international pour occasionally. And bottles too.Bottles that can be mixed, matched, and purchased to go. The business blueprint brings the craft beer world to the consumer—in one handy location. “We live here, work here, and play here,” saysArchie, “We created a space [where]we would want to spend our free time.”That authenticity and understanding of the local community are what has allowed Chillax to become a pillar in Wentzville so quickly; their vision and their brand resonate with many, and now, people can’t imagine the city without Chillax.

Chillax attributes its success, despite the pandemic, to an overwhelming amount of community support. “The community definitely rallied around us,” says Ashley. In return, Chillax made an effort to accommodate customers by bringing the Chillax experience to them using Chillax Mobile. This mobile bar service allows customers to enjoy beverage service for any occasion. Even with indoor eating and drinking allowed again, Chillax Mobile remains a great way to add pizazz to gatherings of any size.


What makes Chillax special is its focuson and commitment to the community.They collaborate with local breweries to make products more accessible to many people. Additionally, they support local restaurants and eateries by encouraging patrons to bring take-out or order food for delivery to pair with the many liquid options. Chillax is also a kid-friendly and pet-friendly location, making it the perfect place to spend quality time with any and all family members (even the furry ones). With its indoor and outdoor seating, welcoming atmosphere, and wide selection of local and hard-to-find offerings, it’s no wonder that Chillax has become such a Wentzville favorite. Archie and Ashley invite all to chill, relax, and see for yourself what makes Chillax so special.
