Stopped in here twice while visiting family. As noted, and especially in the 'burbs, a place with this type of selection is rare. Given its location, you can sort of understand the "commercial" feel of the place. As someone visiting, I was able to try a lot of great Midwest brews all in one spot, and in appropriate glassware. The tap list is impressive, I didn't even make it to bottles, as they seemed a bit pricey, anyway. Same bartender both times we visited, nice enough, but not overly friendly. He was reasonably attentive to us, even though we were at the bar. I feel bad for knocking ITAP for its food, as it is ordered in, but it is bad... I like a decent meal if I am drinking quality craft beer, and the bar food from some local place and Pizza Hut are about as poor of options as possible. It's St. Louis, I'd have been happy with Imo's even! I am not trying to be to negative in this review, just balanced to all the other places I have visited. ITAP is a great place to try beers if you are visiting, but it is lacking in both atmosphere and food, before it can take that next step as a beer bar.

My wife and I stopped by this place for a beer after taking a long walk on the levee. It is a small bar, cozy, with lots of beer swag decorating every corner. There are about 40 taps and a large fridge with hundreds of different bottles. For a quiet afternoon, there were more patrons than we expected, and service was prompt and courteous. I had a Stone and my wife had an Ommegang. The selection is almost entirely craft, and they serve in appropriate glasses. No food, no hard liquor, and only a couple of wine selections...this is a beer lover's place. Worth a stop if you have time to kill in the Chesterfield Valley.
