There are some good guys in both StL Brews and Garage Brewers. That's where I would start.

Since you're in Sunset Hills, the closest to you is the St. Louis Brews. Our meetings are in Crestwood, right down Watson Road, the first Thursday of every month. See http://stlbrews.org/about.asp for more details.

I've been a member for 2-3 years now - feel free to send me a PM if you've got specific questions.
I set out running but I take my time.

The STL Hops club meets monthly at Perennial so we aren't too far from you either. You can read info about us here: http://stlhops.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=5023

I'm the Viceroy (VP), so you can PM me with questions. Several great clubs in town, you won't go wrong with any of them.

You are pretty close to both St. Louis Brews Club and STL Hops Homebrew Club. STL Brews meetings are highly attended, pretty formal, and there is a certain style rundown/tasting every meeting.

I'm in the STL Hops HBC. We have around 15-30+ people each month. Most months it starts with a share, quick club news/discussion, and a 50-50 comp at the end.  Once every 3 months we have style rundown/tasting. We have a lot of fun, but we're also building up our presence by getting beers into festivals, members entering comps, big group going to this year's NHC, etc.  We sort of ride the line between fun and formal.

Check out both clubs.  They both have their own feel.

Cheers!
