Finally decided to review this place after three visits.

One of the newer additions to S.t Louis emerging craft scene. This tasting room is nice and cozy with a rectangular tasting room that offers a nice 30 foot long bar made from the remains of an abandoned barn, with a nice stone bar top. The ceiling is high as the place used to be some sort of warehouse. As you walk in to the left corner you can see a nice L shaped glass window that gives patrons a glimpse of the brewing operations. Nice big open spaces with fermenters mash tuns, etc.

The tasting room itself contains the aforementioned bar as well as opposite the bar some tall tables that seat about 6 people. There are also to large picnic type tables between the bar and the far wall. The atmosphere and look is nice and clean at this point with nice artwork about the brewery made by a local StL artist. tHe same artist that designed the bottle labels I believe.

The guys behind the bar are friendly and eager to chat. THey also have a wealth of knowledge about all beer and obviously the offerings that 4 Hand has concocted. Their plans are to have 6 beers year round. 4 beers that are to be their mainstays and then 2 seasonals. As of this review they only had the 4 main brews. A Rye IPA, a American Amber, and American Brown and a Blonde Ale. They also had a couple of guest taps but I have seen them rotate constantly.

Their brews are great and very inexpensive. At 5 bucks a pint for a local craft brew. Sign me up.

Great addition to StL. Keep it coming guys.

In town for an unrelated event, there happened to be a home cardinals game. There was no parking to be found. Did not go in for a beer.

Visited on a Monday afternoon around 3pm.

V - A typical tasting room attached to a small brewery. Clean, a bit dark, stainless steel abounds. Not real big, so 30/40 people will make this place feel crowded. 4.25

Q - Proper glassware. All of which is rinsed before use. 4

Sel- About ten taps. They happened to have 5 guest taps because of a recent event. 4

Ser - One bartender. A lot of staff interaction and not enough with the customers. But generally friendly and engaging. 4

Finally had a chance to visit this brewery. My wife and I, on a trip across town, dropped in to sample and pick up a growler. Easy to find, right off the highway, and with plenty of parking across the street, the location is in an industrial area. There is a long bar, a food window, and a large glass wall looking into the brewery. The bar service was friendly and happy to explain the selection. On the downside, there is a notable lack of seating. Still, the beer is exceptional and the place is well worth a visit.
