I had a couple free hours on my last trip to St. Louis, and was lucky that Square One was only a 10 minute walk from the hotel.
Stopped in the bar for a couple quick pints, didn't have time for a full meal.
A classic old building, lots of brick and woodwork. Large arched mirror behind the bar. Warm, cozy, very old school. The bar is up front, and the eating area/trestaurant is in the back. The small hallway separating the two houses the brew equipment, and you can view through glass windows.
On tap they have only their own beer (no Bud Light here!). A large selection was posted on the chalk board, with regular, seasonal, and coming soon offerings. I had to try the Park Ave Pale Ale on cask, and the Anniversary Ale (a combination of various malts and hops, but not within one particular style). Both beers were quite good.
Bartender was friendly and knowledgable, and offered a sample before I ordered each beer. Being mid-afternoon, was lucky to catch Happy Hour (3.25 for a pint).
Great place, on my "to go back to" list.

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.
