Went a couple of weeks ago on a Friday night. The place was packed but after some standing were able to find two seats at the bar.

It was different from other bars in that although the place was packed there was still plenty of personal space. I didn't feel packed into a sardine can. Bar is on your right as you enter and the coolers line the right hand wall. One huge positive is that ITap is non-smoking. They even pump in fresh air into the place that gave me a somewhat euphoric feeling.

Service was fast and knowlgeable,has zero complaints in this area. I even got a free beer when there was trouble with the lines.

Selection is top notch 40 taps 460 bottles and to-go service. Tap list is on a big board to the side of the bar. Plenty of Belgians and hoppy varieties alike. I had Chimay Tripel, North Coast Le Merle, and Kasteel Tripel. My wife had a Hoptamistic and Mothership Wit.

While they do not serve food, you can order from three nearby restaurants and have it delivered.

The overall value was decent with the beers just about average priced.

In conclusion, I would say that iTap is one of the top beer destinations in STL.

We stayed in Chesterfield, and knew we had to visit. Sat outside on the patio on a hot Sunday afternoon to enjoy a few beers.
One full wall of coolers with 500 bottled beers and another 40 beers on tap, there was lots of choice for eveyone. They had just recently hosted a beer tasting event, and as a result the printed beer menu was out of date with several of our picks sold out. Inside, there is a current beer list, so we did find some goodies. Although originally upset and frustrated that they were sold out of so much, I quickly reminded everyone that this is a good thing: kegs are always rotating and fresh, and nothing sits around getting stale.
Our waiter/server was helpful in providing suggestions and samples, and all beers were served in appropriate glassware (though not always with the correct logo).
No food service available, but you can bring your own (clearly explained on their website and in store signage), so you can't complain about that.
A great place focusing on beer only, lots of specialty and unique brews.
If I lived any where close, I would be getting an iTap Passport, and spend all my time here.

ITAP as it's known is a beer bar. Make no mistake about it, no food, just beer. Incredible selection of taps that change often and if I'm not mistaken just about every bottle of beer distributed in MO can be found in thier coolers, purchased and drank on premises. They allow food to be ordered or brought in from nearby restuarants, if your hungry. They play host to many cool beer events. The Chesterfield location is in a non-descript stip mall, not much character on the outside but the inside has plenty of beer stuff, and lots of flat screen TV for sports viewing. Many limited and special releases find thier way here.

I make it to iTap as often as I can which ends up being around once a week. I'll go there on a calm Friday night to sit and chill with some friends, or on a Saturday afternoon to bring a pizza with me (they don't serve food) and eat lunch and enjoy some new beer they probably have on draft. Or even a place to enjoy a game some night during the week. I think they have 40 rotating drafts and 500+ bottles to choose from. I've always had a great experience with the staff as well and the majority of the servers know a great deal about beer themselves so that's always a plus. If you're in the area I suggest making a stop in here, it's the biggest and typically best selection of micro brews in the area. If only 2 or 3 kegs of a specialty brew makes it to the city, most likely iTap is one of the bars that lands these kegs from distributors (i.e. BCSCS, BCSVS, FW14, Abacus, KBS, Stone '08 BBA IRS, etc.).

I'm a big fan of iTap Soulard (admittedly I've never been out to the Chesterfield location), and am always impressed by their draft and bottle selection each time I go in. Looking through their beer list gives you the feeling of "being a kid in a candy store". The atmosphere is inviting and warm. It's really cool to see so many people embracing and enjoying craft beer. When they have music in it's not so loud that you have to shout to hear the person next to you, but loud enough to add the the ambiance. The service is usually good, but every so often the bartenders seem more wrapped up in something that's going on amongst themselves, than what's happening out on the floor. However, when this happens it doesn't last long. Most servers are knowledgeable on what iTap offers too. I highly suggest iTap to anyone - even if you're just discovering craft beer.
