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.

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

Great pre-cardinals/whenever stop for me. The beers are generally great, though it's rare that an exceptional standout is available on draught. I'm most impressed by their barrel-aged "volume series" beers, modestly impressed by their berliner weisse variants (i.e. passion fruit), and relatively unimpressed by their hop-forward offerings (with a few exceptions including ca$h mony, resurrection, contact high). The prices are generally $5 a pour and they have ample schwag to take home if you're interested. Food is great, but not really associated with the brewery (5th wheel is a Bailey's dig). I'd say my most pleasant experiences have been stopping by for goshen coffee (cold brew ice cream float) on a Saturday "takeover" and their beer dinner, which was put on during STL craft beer week. I'm a fan of their experimentation, but think their execution is sometimes lacking.
