Another review I have been wanting to add from my trip home to St. Louis. Decided to try out Square One and was pleasantly surprised! It was a bit slow the afternoon my family stopped in for lunch, so I am not sure I got an accurate view of the atmosphere... it was slow. Unfortunate for those not there, as the beers and food were excellent. I felt the service was good, but sort of reflected the sleepy atmosphere of the place. I will say they had a nice array of beer for a brew pub, and did a good job with many of them. The Scotch Ale, DIPA, and barleywine were all excellent. The food was a more modern twist on classic pub fare, and used quality ingredients. Paired well with the beers. I'll definitely return, and look forward to trying more, but maybe not their distillery offerings...

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.
