Knowing the derth of options in the St Louis area since I was a former resident, I was pleased to find ITH while doing my usual search on Beerfly.

My visit was at the time of the NCAA basketball tournament last month. The first night I stopped in the place was moderately attended. The beer coolers were on the opposite wall from the bar and roped off so only employees could access it. Very respectable selection of regional beers like Boulevard, O'Fallon and Midwest brews like Bells and Founders. Nothing extraordinary mind you, but all worthy of respect from the beer enthusiest. The bar itself is rather stark and quite loud as there is nothing on the walls to mute the din. The bar seats about 20 or so and the wall behind it is lined with approximately 30 or so taps. I recall having Bells Hopslam and recall seeing Founders and Avery Maharaja on tap along with a few standard Belgians, ie Chimay, et al. Again, the lines were clean and the options were very respectable. I met a kooky couple from the bowels of MO who were seriously questioning their deeply ensconsed religious beliefs. The wife was a breast feeding consultant (heh?). The husband a long haired-dude who looked really tired. Fasinating people. The next night I stopped in after watching my UCONN Huskies win to advance to the elite eight. The place was packed with Mizzou fans cheering their team on. There was also a camera crew. Lot's of cute co-eds. But I digress. If I happen to be in the area again on business, I will stop in. I recommend others do the same. Congrats to folks in the St Louis area recognizing that the time is now to embrace quality beer.

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 They had just recently hosted a beer tasting event, and as a result the printed beer menu was out of date with several of our picks sold out.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.
