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.

I've been here a few times now. For some reason, this seems to be my go-to place when I'm in St Louis.
4 Hands consists of a small tap room with a somewhat industrial feel to it. There is a bar to the back end with stools while there is a mix of tables and chairs to fill the space. Along the side and back are windows which open the space to the brewery itself. I've only been at off-times, but the tap room does get a bit crowded after a Cardinals game (and unless you're lucky enough to score one of the five designated parking spaces, you'll be paying $5 to park if it's a game day).
There is always a good mix of beers on. A bit of something for everyone. Some hoppy pale ales, their berliner, as well as some maltier beers and even a few cocktails for the non-beer drinkers. Pours go for about $6 each. Growler fills are in the area of $10, depending on the beer.
There are no servers. Just a bartender and a guy in the kitchen. Everything is obtained from the bar itself. Service is professional and the barkeeps know whats on tap (and are more than willing to give samples if you want to try something new.)
Food is fairly limited. More like bar snacks then a full menu.
Beer is available to go. Some in the cooler. Some on the shelf. And, of course, there is a multitude of beer schwag to go along with it.
