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.

Beers were good, a little upsetting that i couldnt fill a groweler with peanut butter chocolate milk stout to take back home and share with my friends in chicago. guess that would be my only complaint, bartender could have been a little more social also. i would definitely go back

I really like the feel of this tasting room. I think they serve up the best year-round beer offerings of the breweries in STL. It's tough to not find something you'll really like on draft. Also have a cooler with 6-packs and bombers to go.

The Fifth Wheel has a small kitchen inside and serves up great appetizers and sandwiches.

I feel right at home at this brewery. The staff is extremely friendly and I've never disliked a beer that they have had on tap. The distribution has recently been relatively scarce on the Illinois side, so in order to obtain any of their brews that aren't the staple products (Divided Sky Rye IPA, Reprise Centennial Red, Single Speed Session) it has required a physical trip to the brewery.

That being said, the trip is always enjoyable and well worth my time to cross the Mississippi River and simply sit down to a relaxing atmosphere and a refreshing beer. 4 Hands Brewing Co. is my girlfriend and I's favorite brewery, hands down.

Still need to explore more but so far I'm a fan and have been quite delighted (specially the Oatmeal Brown).
