Not a bad brewery but not one of my top 5 in STL. Very good food with a nice dinning area. I wasn't overly impressed with the beer but the Hop Harvest IPA was good...not on the same level as a Stone or Lagunitas but decent none the less.

Square One is a solid brewery and one you'll want to try but don't pass up Six Row, Urban Chestnut or Four Hands for it.

I must say I really like the building and the atmosphere of the place. I did a flight and the beers were good but not great. There was a good selection though and if you're into whiskey they do that too. I do not believe there was any food there. If in that neighborhood I will consider stopping but there are so many other places in the St. Louis area I have not gotten to yet...

I decided to stop here based on other BA reviews. What a great place. Situated in a hip neighborhood in an old building that is nicely remodeled. I had a single hop IPA called Lomik to start things off - it was excellent. I followed that with a Belgian IPA that was very good. Cuban Pulled Pork w/ beans and rice for dinner was fantastic. This is a great stop if you're visiting St. Louis - big time recommendation.

I've been to Square One a few times, and the fact I've made it a point to stop by when traveling through St. Louis should go a long way in conveying my thoughts. The atmosphere is pleasant, the food good and the beers above average. Whilst there have been a few average brews, the few that have been less than desirable were nonetheless interesting experiments (ie. an IPA utilizing only one hop) and as such, I don't fault Square One. A nice combination of food and micro-brews, and definitely worth visiting at least once when in the St Louis area.

Situated in Lafayette Square district, less than 1 block from Lafayette Park where we play vintage base ball frequently. Each time we have a match there we always allow time for Square One afterwards.

Usually around 12 different types of own brewed on tap, I've tried around 7 or 8 of the 12 and found that I really liked the Spicy Blonde, the Light Squared and the Barvarian Weizen beers.

Overall their menu is very reasonably priced with a nice selection of salads and appatizers to start off with. Sandwiches are generally priced around $6 to $9 (the Jerk Chicken and Reuben are awesome) with fuller dinners in the $15 range.

Overall very nice place to take friends or visiting family for dinner or hang out in the bar area with buddies on a warm afternoon.

really cool spot. old wood bar with an old church style window looking out to the back patio. bit copper still visible and a large chalk board with the days beers posted. all of the beers we tried were good, with the single malt scotch ale maybe being the pick of the day. food was nice, homemade sausage plate, very tasty. and the beer pretzels were amazing as well. tried a glass of their whiskey too, which was surprisingly mellow. service was very friendly and knowledgable, while the bartender wasnt too hard on the eyes. overall a great place to have some late lunch and beers, as prices were fair and the atmosphere was awesome.

Visited on a tip from BA bhalter, thanks Ben!

Situated in the Lafayette square area, we were able to visit for a late lunch on a Friday. The bar area was half full and only a few tables were occupied in the dining area. Pretty cozy area with a variety of rooms, we sat on the heated patio. Brewing rooms litrally in the middle of the building, and they were brewing while we were there. Outdoor biergarten looked like it would be great in summer. Overall a solid facility, though I would suggest that the bar might be a tad too small for Friday nights.

They had about 12 of their own beers on tap - one of the wider selections I've seen in a brewpub, especially considering they varied a lot in style: I did 2 samplers and was able to try 6oz of 8 of their beers. Frankly, their beers were average on the aggregate. Nothing was bad but nothing spectacular either. I had the maple stout, weizen, ipa, German ipa, porter, french oak saison, dubbel, and scotch ale. The Saison that was probably my favorite. I would have liked to try some of their spirits though - nice to see craft distilling taking off!

Real star here was the food. Fresh with some creativity and presentation style. I went with a Cuban pork and black beans/rice dish, which was tasty. Others in my group raved about their meals as well. The pretzels we shared as an appetizer weren't traditional but were excellent, and we split two dessert dishes and both the brownie and apple empanada were good. I can't remember the last time I had 3 courses at a brewpub but everything was so good we just wanted to keep eating! They were pretty dead, so we got some especially attentive and helpful service.

Overall I really enjoyed square one. So glad I went here as my only real beer-dedicated stop in St. Louis. Go to enjoy the beer, come home raving about the food. I've been to countless brewpubs and this is one of my favorites.
