This place is quite a good brewpub and will, I think only get better.

Atmosphere is very nice. The bar is absolutely gorgeous I very much enjoyed myself and the atmosphere was a big part.

Service was good and I think they'll be improving, they're still new.

Nice selection of beers on tap, a Pilsner, American Wheat (fitlered), Bavarian Hefe, Pale Ale, IPA, Amber, Barleywine, Stout and Light aqd I'm probably missing one or two.

Some were quite nice and it was refreshing to have a brewery in town that's unafraid of hops. Some weren't so nice, but they are the first batches in a new system so I'll give em time before writing them off.

Food rocked. Everything everyone had looked and smelled great.

All in all, Square One looks to be a strong entry in the starved brewpub market of St. Louis. Good for them.


The ESA and Park Avenue Pale are at this point really their top beers and are quite nice.

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.
