4.78/5  rDev +6.9%
vibe: 4.5 | quality: 5 | service: 4.5 | selection: 5 | food: 4.5 | $$

Three trips for me so far to The Bridge. It has a comfortable bar downstairs and a nice dining area up top overlooking the bar. The vibe is laid back, though a late night visit found a much more polished crowd. Huge doors on the front of the space open during nice weather letting in tons of light and fresh air. The Bridge is completely non-smoking too.

Beer is the star with 36+ currently on tap (selections in the cellar are available even though it entails the staff doing a flight of stairs - tip accordingly), with 21 more taps soon to be added. About 100 bottles as well, though I've not even started to dig in there. Everything is solid craft beer or quality imports with an emphasis on local offerings. Taps change really quickly, and lots of limited releases show up.

Serving size choices are great - 4/12/20/64 ounce are available. Prices vary depending on the beer, but almost all are very reasonable $5 for a 20 oz pint of Founder's Red's Rye? Yes, please.

Food menu is not large, but everything I've had (Cuba, Missouri sandwich; Hot Chedder Burger; cheese plate; various desserts - 4 oz. pours are a Godsend for matching with dessert . . .) has been excellent. Lots of quality local ingredients are sourced, and the kitchen opts for simple preparations that let them shine.

A great addition to the St. Louis beer scene.

4.1/5  rDev -8.3%
vibe: 4.25 | quality: 4 | service: 4 | selection: 4.25 | $$

Stopped in for a couple of quick samples of some local brews.

About 40-45 taps with emphasis on regional beers. I really liked that drafts are available in 4 oz and 10/16 oz depending on style since this allowed me to try several new ones during a relatively short visit.

Reasonable bottle list with a fair amount of variety.

Didn't try the food, but the service was attentive and helpful.

Enjoyed the vibe in the place and would return if in the area...

4.34/5  rDev -2.9%

Pro: Food is outstanding. Tried the duck salad and it hit the spot. The cold noodles and peanut sauce paired really well with the duck. Combined with a nice size portion, and this was an enjoyable dinner. Selection was well balanced with primarily domestic craft beer but a nice selection of European (especially Belgian) brews. Number of beers on tap are hard to find on the East Coast, so this was en enjoyable selection. 1 of 2 bar tenders knew his beer and could make interesting suggestions based on my own criteria. Led me to sample a number of beers, and was generous with the sample pours.
Cons: Other bar tender was clueless and really didn't know how to pick a beer. Maybe she was just new or unfamiliar with the rotating selection?
